THE WHITE FEATHER – Union Theatre Until 17th October

★★★★

By Terry Eastham @Terry_Ea

“The White Feather” is an intense and emotional musical with some very moving songs and a very strong story that does nothing to hide an ignominious moment in British history. ” a fine musical with a poignant story to tell”.

” Abigail’s intensity and emotion as she does everything to clear and defend her brother is truly fantastic to see”

MCQUEEN – West End

In London theatre, Plays, Reviews by Caroline Hanks-FarmerLeave a Comment

As we take to our seat we see an open stage where Stephen Wight (Lee) cuts an isolated and tortured figure, pacing the stage, lost in his thoughts almost as if obsessive compulsive tendencies are playing havoc with his mind. This historic theatre is one of immense beauty, opulence, luxury and completely fitting to host this new piece written by James Phillips.

YOU WON’T SUCCEED ON BROADWAY IF YOU DONT HAVE ANY JEWS – St James Theatre

In London theatre, Musicals, Reviews by Caroline Hanks-FarmerLeave a Comment

‘You won’t succeed on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews.’ This quote from the Monty Python musical Spamalot has inspired a new show, dedicated to celebrating the contribution of Jewish people to musical theatre over the last century. From Stephen Sondheim to Irving Berlin, Jule Styne to Burt Bacharach, I certainly had no idea so many great names in the industry came from a Jewish background. (Although if I’m honest, I can’t say I’d ever actually thought about it.)

TOMMY – Greenwich Theatre

It’s been 19 years since we last saw The Who’s Tommy in London. Coming from Portsmouth where they filmed the iconic pinball scenes in the Kings Theatre in Southsea and a lover of the music I was keen to see this new production at the Greenwich Theatre. As you see below the production shots by Claire Bilyard of Scarab Pictures had us salivating before it went on stage so did it live up to the expectation?
