Feast from the East is a series of eight short plays from INK Festival, showcasing the playwriting talent from East Anglia; they’re on the road and in London.
I’m not quite sure how I managed to miss Hadestown at the National Theatre before it transferred to Broadway, where it has picked up 14 Tony Award nominations.
A decent production of a slightly bland musical – The Hired Man’s 20-30 year span is over-ambitious for the given running time.
Uncle Vanya at the Hope Theatre is a well designed production, with some strong performances – but its urgency clashes with the tone of the play.
Betrayal is a real gem from the Pinter collection, benefiting from the minimalist design and slick direction of this production – Charlie Cox’s performance is a real highlight.
An inspired version of The Crucible as a warning from history and a modern day parable – Caoilfhionn Dunne is outstanding as John Proctor.
Night of the Living Dead is an instantly recognisable title; George Romero basically kick-started the zombie genre in his 1968 flick, though they were just ‘ghouls’ then, a moniker adhered to in this: Night of the Living Dead Live.
Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is a cast recording that’s worth listening to whether you’ve seen the show or not, as you can absolutely appreciate the performances & musicianship – and it’s definitely one for Tina Turner fans to add to their collection. Remarkably, it’s almost like listening to Tina herself.
Where is Peter Rabbit? is a charming family musical with some beautifully designed puppets – maybe Peter Rabbit needs to be found a bit sooner next time.
A clash of extremes, as hilarious moments mingle with serious and dramatic ones. A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) at The Vaults is an enjoyable show with an important message to get across.
