‘Each performance is sharply refined’: Ghosted: Another F***ing Christmas Carol – The Other Palace ★★★
A Christmas Carol is of course a tradition at Christmas time and I defy anyone who doesn’t get to see at least one production at this time of year and there are certainly many different interpretations and adaptations to be experienced in London this year. Ghosted at The Other Palace is the most contemporary and adult humoured (as the title itself suggests) that I certainly have experienced yet.
‘Hurray for new British writing’: MILLENNIALS – The Other Palace ★★★★
There may be a little final sprinkle of fairy dust missing but Millennials at The Other Palace is one of the funnest shows about and it’ll be brilliant to see where it progresses.
‘Delivers a rollicking good time’: MILLENNIALS – The Other Palace ★★★
What I can safely say about Millennials at The Other Palace is that Elliot Clay has produced a collection of irresistible musical earworms, some rousing, some boppy, a couple reflective, all fiendishly catchy, performed by a sensational sextet of musical theatre talents who shine like stars and sell the material for all it’s worth, and then some.

‘Weirdly retro’: BE MORE CHILL – The Other Palace

‘The audience is whisked right back to the 1930s’: REPUTATION – The Other Palace ★★★★
The writing father/daughter duo Alick Glass and Suzanne Glass really captures the feeling of the period in Reputation which, despite the drama of its core story, remains a feel-good show.
‘Ultimately a feel-good show’: REPUTATION – The Other Palace ★★★
Despite the plot holes, this is a charming musical that has potential. This might be the first outing for Alick Glass’s 1930’s set musical but there is still plenty of potential to be found in it despite the flaws in the plot and number of songs included in it. Taking place in 1935, Michelle is… Read More
