Review: 3*** World’s End – King’s Head Theatre @WorldsEndPlay @KingsHeadThtr #QueerSeason2019

Tweetingit: 3* Parents and sons with dysfunctional relationships in a 90s time capsule. Patchy, but strong performances bring it home. For any retrospective piece to work it has to clearly identify the period in question. World’s End doesn’t exactly scream … Continue reading

Review: 3*** River in the Sky – Hope Theatre @TheHopeTheatre

Tweetingit: 3* A young couple dealing with the death of a child; a surprisingly touching story of life and loss. Society rarely deals with death as well as it should. How could it be any other way? Those left behind … Continue reading

Review: 4**** The Hunchback of Notre Dame – St. Paul’s Church, Covent Garden @Iristheatre

Tweetingit: 4* Victor Hugo’s legendary tale is given new life by a gloriously original production in a near perfect venue. Esmerelda has never looked or sounded quite so good. A quiet sense of expectation grows whenever I walk through the … Continue reading

Review: 3*** The Actor’s Nightmare – Park Theatre 90 @ParkTheatre

Tweetingit: 3* Six mini playlets explore the mysteries of theatre in this patchy but broadly enjoyable portrayal of industry stereotypes. Satire is the most challenging genre for both writer and performer. It requires a subtle, understated form of wit and … Continue reading

Review: 4**** Hamlet – St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden @Iristheatre

Tweetingit: 4* A beautiful setting and confidently staged version of a classic Shakespeare tale. Even better the rain stayed away…hurrah! A damp early morning drizzle had thankfully given way to a bright, warm summerevening. Performers entertained a crowd on the … Continue reading

Review: 4**** School of Rock – The Gillian Lynne Theatre @SchoolOfRockUK ‏

Tweetingit: 4* Unemployed rock guitarist blags his way into prep school and teaches kids to rock. A routine score is saved by a fantastically talented cast. It seems appropriate the Gillian Lynne Theatre was re-named in honour of the legendary … Continue reading
