Once is not just your average love story. It’s a charming production with a touching tale and exquisite music that’s sure to capture your heart – it’s guaranteed to be a show you’ll want to see more than once.
‘The music is the heart & soul of this show’: ONCE – Touring ★★★★
A welcome return for Once, a gorgeous show with music truly at its heart and soul.
‘A complete delight of a musical’: ONCE – Touring ★★★★★
The audience can’t hep but be attentive throughout as Once has the magical ability to completely wrap them up and take them on a journey that is pure and delicate.
‘The rich score is performed expertly by the cast of actor-musicians’: THE HIRED MAN – Hornchurch & Touring ★★★
A decent production of a slightly bland musical – The Hired Man’s 20-30 year span is over-ambitious for the given running time.
‘There’s something intriguing & moving here’: THE HIRED MAN – Hornchurch & Touring
The Hired Man might perhaps disappoint those looking for the bombast of a large-scale musical but in its subtle portrait of a slice of social history, there’s something more intriguing and moving here.
‘Tender enough to move even the stubbornest of souls’: ONCE – Hornchurch
This regional UK premiere of Once the musical should see you falling slowly towards Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch in order to book your tickets.
‘A fascinating & heartfelt play’: AN IDEAL HUSBAND – West End ★★★★
Worth going to Jonathan Church ’s latest Wilde Classic Spring revival – An Ideal Husband – if only for a feast of Foxes: patriarch Edward as old Lord Caversham and his real youngest son Freddie as his stage son Lord Goring.
‘Punk-like energy is hard to sustain’: ELECTRA – Bunker Theatre
The enduring presence of the gods in this modern reading of Electra is a circle that is never squared, the potential intrigue of its revolutionary politics are hampered by the reliance on a hero (fresh from the fight), and not even the raucous live music can stop the storytelling from dragging.
‘Uncomfortable mix of the ancient and the modern’: ELECTRA – Bunker Theatre
Enjoyable performances, but I really do wish there had been less words in Electra at the Bunker Theatre, and more music and sharper storytelling.
