Amelie The Musical oozes Gallic charm from Daniel Messé’s evocative music to the enchanting performance of its luminous star, Audrey Brisson.
The cult French film Amélie has been on a long journey to get to the UK and it’s finally set down here for a shortbread-box-sweet tour which captures the whimsy and delight of the film wonderfully.
The storyline itself is pretty thin but thanks to the outstanding vocal performances and incredibly emotive and shocking scenes, American Idiot provides a fun, feisty night out.
A whirlwind of big hair, 80s hits, innuendos and humour, Nick Winston’s Club Tropicana isn’t a musical masterpiece but it is a whole lot of fun and a harmless piece of entertainment.
An eighties jukebox musical set on the sunny coast of Spain sounds like a fun night out. However, Club Tropicana highlights the ignorance of British people on all-inclusive holiday.
Benidorm meets Faulty Towers: Club Tropicana is an entertaining, albeit predictable, night out.
Swan Lake is a sumptuous production full of glorious moments which you’d be hard pressed not to revel in. A powerful, intricately choreographed and danced show, this is a must see for ballet regulars and newbies alike.

What should be a dazzling, if possibly dated, show was disappointing on so many levels. I would love to see it later in its journey and my expectation is that it will be a very different story
There is nothing not to like here in Madagascar The Musical. It’s bright, fun, has audience participation, brilliant choreography and great singing.
On a scorching summer night, the New Wimbledon Theatre played host to the opening of the high-energy, larger than life Madagascar The Musical.
Those seeing Legally Blonde for the first time will most likely have an enjoyable evening due to the warm-hearted nature of the piece. However, the many patchy moments made me feel as if the piece had lost some of its soul somewhere along the tour.
A packed house at the New Wimbledon Theatre rose as one to salute Ria Jones’ bow at the close of Sunset Boulevard and with good reason. Jones remains magnificent, her definitive, decaying diva capturing Norma Desmond’s long-faded Hollywood majesty.
