While Fast did feel like it dragged at some points, the clever use of a projector screen and off-stage narration works hard to bring the audience back.
The strength of Mites lies in the opening up of firm discussions regarding mental health which until, certainly of late, have tended to be constrained.
This all-singing all-dancing extravaganza of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a true credit to the timeless classic. The story is fun, it’s funny, it’s cheeky and it’s performed beautifully.
All in all, Brooklyn The Musical is a sweet little composition, it’s just a shame that they are confined to the limitations that the piece provides.
Mother of him is an emotional journey and a deep exploration of how far can the love of a mother go.
For the singing, humour and general feel-good production, Midlife Cowboy certainly ticks all the right boxes.
At Last is provocative, emotional, gritty and thought-provoking – the qualities you wish for from every play you ever watch.
“Come and see those dancing feet” is famously the tagline of 42nd Street, yet it really should be the tagline of Heartbeat of Home, which opened to rapturous applause at the Piccadilly Theatre.
Jack McNamara’s The Fishermen is the powerful adaptation for the stage by Gbolahan Obisesan of Chicgozie Obioma’s novel and carries the author’s dramatic intensity and humour to Trafalgar Studios.
With a little bit of work, James Corley’s new play World’s End could be excellent, but in its current manifestation, something has missed the mark.
in Thriller Live we are lucky enough to have, in the West End, a show that celebrates Michael Jackson’s work through amazing vocals, slick choreography, the best dance crew of the West End, and, of course, his eternal music.
Performed on a vast traverse stage running directly through the middle of the stunning church venue, Antic Disposition’s new production of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Macbeth transforms itself into a psychological thriller.
BTA’s Dogfight is an entertaining love story, full of heart and soul. An emotional discovery, well worth a trip to Southwark Playhouse.
Anna Ziegler’s Actually is a journey into sexual consent, following a drunken hook up of two college students, and the different perspectives on their encounter.
The concept of the piece was fascinating, with the production beginning with an introduction of the actors in a travelling performance group tasked with telling the story of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Ready, steady…go! 80 Days, a real-world adventure is an immersive and different treasure hunt by Fire Hazard Games, based on Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days.
More an avant-garde exercise on a theme than anything particularly ground-breaking, certainly, but enjoyable performances and affecting writing help to bring everything together into a consistently interesting, reflective evening of theatre.
Doubtless many might find it an acquired taste, but this version of An Enemy of the People remains a brave, praiseworthy effort to revitalise the original text, full of talent, provocative originality, and life.
Vincent River is a compelling drama not to be missed, and it is incredible to think that even though it was premiered almost 20 years ago, the message at its heart – hate crimes – is still so actual and relevant.
