Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, The Prom provides pure elation mixed with comedy so expertly that you can’t fail to leave with a beaming smile on your face.

Dreamgirls is now well settled into the Savoy Theatre and comfortably booking up until the autumn. So for a reviewer with no real interest whatsoever in the TV series Glee or its much lauded star Amber Riley, what better way to assess the show than on the one night in the week when Ms Riley rests her remarkable larynx, with her Effie White played (as advertised) by Broadway diva Marisha Wallace.

Every soul on the Savoy stage sounds and looks dynamic – and I mean dynamic. There really cannot be a better ensemble in the West End right now.
A musical that sparkles with sharp dialogue and a fantastic cast as well as a brutal insight into the music industry and its pitfalls. If you are looking for a show with big tunes and plenty of attitude then this […]
