Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Sean Foley’s adaptation of the film The Man In The White Suit starring Stephen Mangan and Kara Tointon.
Director Sean Foley had a huge success with The Ladykillers, turning the gentle fifties Ealing comedy into a smart farce. You can’t blame him for taking a second bite at the same cherry. Unfortunately, The Man in the White Suit feels infinitely more laboured.
Sean Foley’s adaptation of the 1950s Ealing comedy The Man In The White Suit stars Stephen Mangan as clever but hapless scientist Sidney and Kara Tointon as Daphne, a posh, mill owner’s daughter.
The full cast and creative team is announced for Sean Foley’s stage adaptation of classic Ealing Studios comedy The Man in the White Suit.
Stephen Mangan and Kara Tointon are to star in a stage adaptation by Sean Foley (who also directs) of the classic Ealing Studios comedy The Man in the White Suit.
I have to admit, the main motivation I had for trying to see this play from Sam Holcroft when it ran at the National’s Dorfman Theatre back in 2015 was some of the casting (Stephen Mangan and Miles Jupp are two brilliant comic actors), as well as hearing that they would have a full-on Christmas dinner onstage.
Mind the Blog rounds up her favourite male performances in the theatre during 2018.
This semi-staged concert performance of Frank Loesser’s classic musical Guys & Dolls fully captures the spirit of the story and the characters that leaves you beaming from ear to ear.
Lara Pulver, Stephen Mangan, Sharon D. Clarke and Paul Nicholas will join the cast of Guys and Dolls at the Royal Albert Hall, running for three performances from 19-20 October 2018.
It’s been a bumper week for rape. Harvey Weinstein was indicted. Tommy Robinson was jailed for filming the accused in a grooming gang trial outside Leeds Crown Court. The world’s most durable feminist Dr Germaine Greer told Hay Literary Festival that most rape cases were ‘just bad sex’ rather than serious crimes, and in Connecticut a man got his cock out in court to prove it didn’t match his accuser’s description.
Ian Rickson’s excellent production at the Harold Pinter Theatre demonstrates, without a shadow of a doubt, why The Birthday Party deserves its classic status.
But this starry revival of The Birthday Party which has just opened at – where else? – the Harold Pinter Theatre – is immensely enjoyable – even if you occasionally lose the plot.
Ian Rickson’s 60th-anniversary revival of Harold Pinter’s best-known play has opened at the West End theatre named after the late playwright. The Birthday Party stars Toby Jones, Zoë Wanamaker, Stephen Mangan and Pearl Mackie. Here’s what critics thought.
With its episode of a game of blind man’s bluff being both very funny and rather horrible, this is a Birthday Party for a generation brought up on The League of Gentlemen.
Ian Rickson’s production is a tense and unnerving experience that utilises all the skills of its excellent cast to reinforce the oddity of one of Pinter’s most performed plays.
Pearl Mackie will join the cast of a new production of Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party, in her first role since playing ‘Bill Potts’, the Doctor’s companion, in the latest series of the BBC’s Doctor Who.
A new production of Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party will run at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre, 60 years since the play’s debut, from 9 January to 14 April 2018 with an opening night on 18 January 2018.
SITCOM DOESN’T QUITE STAND UP First the good news. If there is an award for best-choreographed food-fight, it’s just been won (take a bow, fight director Kate Waters). Stephen Mangan leaps on tables with the agility (and the hairdo) of … Continue reading →
