Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for the Regent Park Open Air Theatre’s revival of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Our Town.
As part of a new series, our editor Lisa Martland picks out seven of her Top Picks from the last week of theatre (20-27 May 2019). Amidst her choices is the return of The Lehman Trilogy, impressing Jonathan Baz with its ‘sheer technical theatrical genius”, while Aleks Sierz asks whether wearing headphones during a performance of Anna at the National Theatre is all a gimmick or vital to the impact of the play.
All of the actors in Our Town create a beautiful puzzle of different personalities, dynamics and ages that really make their performance shine as a whole.
Thornton Wilder’s writing in Our Town feels as fresh and innovative as it must have done in the 1930s and taking an early season risk on a less conventional play ultimately pays off.
Regent’s Park Theatre has today announced principal casting for their productions of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar, alongside the full creative team for Evita.

Following its sell-out success in 2016 and 2017 at the Open Air Theatre Regent’s Park, the multi-award-winning production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Chris Superstar transfers to the Barbican Theatre for just 60 performances in 2019, running from 4 July to 24 August).

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre finishes its summer season with an outrageously kitsch and eccentric production of Little Shop of Horrors that will leave you singing its infectious title song all the way home.

Here’s Love London Love Culture’s guide to some of the shows to look out for during August… if you aren’t heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Shakespeare’s slight and silly comedy As You Like at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is just the thing for midsummer.
Overall, this is a lovely summer treat at the Open Air Theatre, working well in the context of its surroundings of Regent’s Park. Hilarious, touching and well worth a visit.
Benjamin Britten’s opera The Turn of the Screw is given the Open Air Theatre treatment in Timothy Sheader’s production. Here’s what critics have had to say about it…
Attending the first show of 2018 made me wonder, not for the first time, why we mad Brits persist in doing outdoor theatre. This is not Verona, Seville or Avignon, after all.
This enchanting production of Peter Pan is filled with enough magic and creativity to make the adults in the audience fully embrace the child within.
