Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is a cast recording that’s worth listening to whether you’ve seen the show or not, as you can absolutely appreciate the performances & musicianship – and it’s definitely one for Tina Turner fans to add to their collection. Remarkably, it’s almost like listening to Tina herself.
Where is Peter Rabbit? is a charming family musical with some beautifully designed puppets – maybe Peter Rabbit needs to be found a bit sooner next time.
A clash of extremes, as hilarious moments mingle with serious and dramatic ones. A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) at The Vaults is an enjoyable show with an important message to get across.
The Marvelous Wonderettes is a frothy concert musical that is a nostalgic bit of escapism – two hours of beautifully performed classic pop tunes.

“What’s your relationship with this man?” It’s a question that Nicholas has heard a lot recently, to which he still hasn’t found a satisfying answer.
The only thing that strikes me when I watch Shit-faced shows – it’s not my first – is that sometimes the off-kilter fun can feel a little forced.
