‘Deliberately flirts with bad taste’: THE WINDSORS ENDGAME – Prince of Wales Theatre
In what Hamlet might call an e’er hasty marriage, The Windsors Endgame has been rushed into the Prince of Wales as a summer filler to temporarily replace one deliberately bad-taste show with a no-taste one, as The Book of Mormon remains on its Covid hiatus.

REVIEW ROUND-UP: The Man in the White Suit at Wyndham’s Theatre
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Sean Foley’s adaptation of the film The Man In The White Suit starring Stephen Mangan and Kara Tointon.
‘Doesn’t survive the surgery’: THE MAN IN THE WHITE SUIT – West End
Director Sean Foley had a huge success with The Ladykillers, turning the gentle fifties Ealing comedy into a smart farce. You can’t blame him for taking a second bite at the same cherry. Unfortunately, The Man in the White Suit feels infinitely more laboured.
‘Comedy doesn’t always stick’: THE MAN IN THE WHITE SUIT – West End ★★★
Sean Foley’s adaptation of the 1950s Ealing comedy The Man In The White Suit stars Stephen Mangan as clever but hapless scientist Sidney and Kara Tointon as Daphne, a posh, mill owner’s daughter.

Album Review: Alfie Boe’s As Time Goes By
Alfie Boe’s As Time Goes By makes for a hugely enjoyable listen, infused with passion and a thrilling musicality that should see it stuffed into many a stocking come 25 December.
CD REVIEW: Twelfth Night (RSC 2017) – Music & Speeches
I was glad to see the RSC’s recent Twelfth Night (starring Adrian Edmondson and Kara Tointon) has become part of its CD collection, saving several musical performances and songs for eternity
TWELFTH NIGHT – Stratford-upon-Avon (RSC) ★★★★
Following in the footsteps of Emma Rice’s production of the same play in her final summer season at the Globe, director Christopher Luscombe moves from Nell Gwynn’s 17th century setting to a Belle Époque version of Twelfth Night.
NEWS: Adrian Edmondson & Kara Tointon star in RSC’s new Twelfth Night
Casting details – including Adrian Edmondson as Malvolio and Kara Tointon as Olivia – are announced for the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Twelfth Night opening in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre this winter.
GASLIGHT – Touring
Kara Tointon plays Bella Manningham; it is evident from the opening scene that she is a troubled, anxious soul who dotes on her husband, Jack (Rupert Young).
INTERVIEW: Spotlight On…Gaslight Star Kara Tointon
Gaslight is a play written by Patrick Hamilton written in 1938 and I play Bella Manningham who has been married for seven years.
NEWS: Kara Tointon, Rupert Young & Keith Allen star in Gaslight tour
One of the greatest thrillers of all time GASLIGHT returns to UK theatres starring the celebrated stage and television actress Kara Tointon as Bella Manningham, memorably portrayed by Oscar winner Ingrid Bergman in the classic 1944 film adaptation. The UK tour opens at Birmingham’s New Alexandra Theatre on 6 January 2017.
MY FAIR LADY – Cologne Opera
If you enjoyed the ITV Sound of Music ‘live’ – or even if like me you thought Kara Tointon wasn’t really up to it and the whole production felt a bit clunky – you may have been struck by how both literally and metaphorically Alexander Armstrong as Max stood head and shoulders above the rest of the cast and therefore what a wonderful Professor Higgins he might make.
