When you see around 200 different shows, you’re bound to come across a few duff ones, but I’m pleased to say that nearly all of the bad shows I saw can be found in this post.
This is possibly one of the most frustrating productions to hit the stage in 2017 so far. Stewart Permutt has created a play about two opposing people and focusing how while they are different on the surface – underneath both are equally insecure but somehow neither character’s stories feel remotely finished.
Park Theatre’s new Spring Summer 2017 season features an array of new writing across both spaces including several world premiere comedies together with the long-awaited European premiere of David Henry Hwang’s Braodway hit Chinglish, an acclaimed musical revival of Jonathan Larson’s tick tick BOOM! and an all-male staging of A Clockwork Orange.
There’s an aura of timeless quality that pervades the touring production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, currently in its second week at Wimbledon. Ian Fleming’s wonderfully imaginative tale, so quintessentially English, married to the universal appeal of the Sherman Brothers’ songs has made for a 20th century fairy tale that ranks alongside the classics.
