Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for the Lyric Hammersmith’s 10th-anniversary pantomime Dick Whittington.
It isn’t every day I stumble across a strong new vocational training opportunity which is almost free to the participants. I refer to the Lyric Ensemble which piloted in the 2017/18 academic year and has just started work with its second group.
Director Jude Christian’s othellomacbeth, two-for-one offer on Shakespearean tragedies at the Lyric Hammersmith, sounds like a bad idea. Crammed into two and half hours, there’s too much material and too little time. And yet, somehow, they manage to pull it off.

The Lyric Hammersmith has announced plans to refurbish the theatre’s 550-seat Victorian auditorium, which has not been fully refurbished since 1979, and to modernise its Studio theatre.
Jubilee is an uneven experience by its nature, but the success of the evening can be judged in the reaction of the audience. It was made for them, and they love it.
The world would be a better place if we had the room to express like Jubilee at the Lyric Hammersmith does. The honesty and severity of this piece is its crowning glory.
