Review: 2** Soap at Underbelly @UnderbellyFest #soap

#Tweetingit – 2** promised to make us wet with excitement. Left us damp and disappointed.  The programme promised a lot.  A unique combination of world-class acrobatics, comedy and live opera performed in, on and around bathtubs.  Quite a bold claim … Continue reading

Review: 4**** Adam and Eve – Hope Theatre @TheHopeTheatre

Tweetingit: 4* Newlywed couple set up home dreaming of domestic bliss. Their happiness is shattered when proverbial hits the fan. Excellent storytelling packed into an hour. A band was tuning up in the basement when I got to the Hope … Continue reading

Review: 4**** Schism – Park Theatre 90 @ParkTheatre ‏

Tweetingit: 4* an engrossing study of the pupil/teacher relationship and attitudes towards disability. A sometimes heavy going but ultimately rewarding experience. The ridiculously convenient Park Theatre sprang another surprise on me last night; a small but beautifully formed studio theatre … Continue reading

Review: 3*** In the Shadow of the Mountain – Old Red Lion Theatre @ORLTheatre ‏ @InstinctTheatre ‏

Tweetingit: 3* A solid two-hander focusing on a couple thrown together by circumstance; the realisation dawns on them they both have mental health issues. Excellent character acting compensates for a painfully thin plot. Mental health is sadly a poor relation … Continue reading

Review: 4**** Baby Box by Laura McGrady at the King’s Head Theatre @JosephineShipp @LLMcGrady #WhoRunsTheWorld @KingsHeadThtr @SleeplessTC

#Tweetingit – 4**** funny, heartrending, thought provoking, troubling. Exactly like gynaecological issues are. Bravo! I’ll start by nailing my colours to the mast.  I am an old school, angry feminist who seethes every time talk about women’s biology is shut … Continue reading

Review: 5***** Chess, the London Coliseum @mrmichaelball @cassidyjanson @timhowar @alexandramusic @SirTimRice #Abba @chessthemusical @bjornulveus # Benny Andersson #ABBA

Tweetingit: 5***** A chess Master-piece makes a triumphant return to the West End. Beautifully sung & visually stunning – if you’ve got a pulse, you’ll love this! Chess had its first West End run at the Prince Edward Theatre from … Continue reading

Review: 3*** Trainspotting Live, the Vaults @thevaultsuk @TrainspotLive

Tweetingit: 3* an ideal opportunity to re-acquaint with familiar faces including Renton, Begbie and Sick Boy. However, truncated stage version loses some spirit of the original screenplay. But still great fun! The dark, cavernous atmosphere of the Vaults in Waterloo … Continue reading

Review: 4**** Pressure – @ParkTheatre

Tweetingit: 4**** A riveting tale of the d-day landings and how a weather forecast went into battle. Proof that history is the new rock and roll! In the film Yanks, Captain John shouts out to a GI: Britain’s a beautiful … Continue reading

Review: 4**** Teddy, the Vaults Theatre. @teddyuktour @thevaultsuk

Tweetingit: 4* Post-war Britain at the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll. Masterful storytelling creating a social document of 50s Britain, and a great live band too! One of many delights visiting the Vaults in Waterloo is the complete lack of … Continue reading
