There was hardly time to recover from the biggest night of the London theatre calendar – the Olivier Awards 2019 – before more openings came thick and fast, both on the Fringe, in the West End and beyond.
What is great about My Theatre Mates is that our 40-plus affiliated bloggers cover such a wide range of locations and styles. From cabaret to circus, from straight drama to musical theatre, from immersive theatre to opera and dance.
Carrying on a new series, our editor Lisa Martland picks out five of her Top Picks from the last week of theatre (8-14 April 2019). Amidst her top picks: Maryam Philpott enjoys a feast of the senses and a slice of Toast at The Other Palace; Aleks Sierz witnesses a triumphant performance from Maggie Smith in A German Life at the Bridge Theatre; and Tony’s Last Tape at the Omnibus Theatre reminds Carole Woddis of a time when politicians had the courage of their convictions. Enjoy the selection.
