There is no let-up in the busy theatre calendar and, as always, our 40-plus Mates based in London, across the UK and internationally are on quick off the mark with their reviews – whether it be openings of West End plays and musicals, intriguing Fringe openings or much-anticipated Fringe premieres.
As part of a new series, our editor Lisa Martland picks out seven of her Top Picks from the last week of theatre (29 April-6 May 2019), ranging from Johnny Fox’s nostalgic return to see All My Sons (led by Sally Field and Bill Pullman) and Maryam Philpott’s thoughts on the much-anticipated Rosmersholm starring Tom Burke and Hayley Atwell to the opening of the Chichester Festival Theatre season with Matt Merritt’s This Is My Family at the Minerva.
And how did musicals Man Of La Mancha and Ain’t Misbehavin’ fare? Plus check out a contribution from brand new Mate, Elaine Chapman, who has been along on to see Featured Show: Starved at the Bread & Roses Theatre. Read on to find out more.
