It’s impossible to stereotype the theatre entertaining and educating audiences across the UK and this past week has been no different with our 40-plus Mates revisiting hit plays, discovering immersive new ones and highlighting fresh, up and coming talent.
As part of a new series, our editor Lisa Martland picks out seven of her Top Picks from the last week of theatre (20-27 May 2019). Amidst her choices is the return of The Lehman Trilogy, fresh from its success on Broadway and impressing Jonathan Baz with its ‘sheer technical theatrical genius”, while Aleks Sierz asks whether wearing headphones during a performance of Anna at the National Theatre is all a gimmick or vital to the impact of the play.
Elsewhere Olivia Mitchell catches up with another hit hoping to reprise its success, Vincent River, and new Mate One Woman West End Show (Sophie Garrod) chats to the founders of Liminal Theatre Productions as part of her compelling Rise Up series. Hope you enjoy the choices below.
