REVIEW – Rozencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Old Vic Theatre London. April 2017.

Star casting is OUT IN FORCE in London at the moment, and what better way to guarantee “bums on seats” than to cast HARRY POTTER in your lead role?

Problem is – can he actually act? We share our opinion with you.

We had a Tom Stoppard double bill with this matinee and Travesties in the evening. It’s a good job we’re intelligent people as it was potentially enough to make your brain drip out of your ear.

REVIEW – Hamlet, Almeida Theatre London. April 2017.

Legger Simon has a MAD crush on Andrew Scott, so for him; the man could just stand there and say nothing for a couple of hours and he’d be happy.

Back at the helm for this show was Robert Icke who reassembled many of the creatives from Oresteia (which was sublime). But had we seen it all before?

REVIEW – La Boheme (Opera Up Close), MAC Birmingham. February 2017.

Opera up close won an Olivier for “Best New Opera Production” a few years ago, so when we heard the production they were so acclaimed for was touring – we had to head along.

A story of a group of bohemian artists living in poverty and a contagious illness infiltrating their lives, the story kind of sounds a little familiar…….

REVIEW – Raising Martha, Park Theatre. February 2017.

A piece about stolen dead bodies, drugs and psychedelic frogs?

Sure, why not!

A brand new comedy, this with a plot line like that could have gone one way or an other.

When you go in with no expectations, shows can either disappoint you or surprise you. Which did Raising Martha do?
