Review: 3*** An Act of God – The Vaults @thevaultsuk @ActOfGodLondon @leakstarches

Tweetingit: 3* Think the Ten Commandments could use a re-boot? Comedian Zoe Lyons imagines God in stand-up mode; predictable but occasionally very funny. An Act of God presents something of a moral conundrum, re-treading themes that have kept satirists busy … Continue reading

Review: 3*** The Last Act of Harry Houdini – The Cockpit Theatre @cockpittheatre @UKTheatreNet @TheCompanyO

Tweetingit: 3* A solid one man show delving into the mind of a puzzling and often misunderstood showman. Harry Houdini wouldn’t have had it any other way. On 31 October 1926, magician and escape artist Harry Houdini died in Detroit. … Continue reading

Review: 3*** Macbeth – The Musical. White Bear Theatre #MacbeththeMusical @WhiteBearTheatr @StageSplinters

Tweetingit: 3* Shakespeare meets Avenue Q in a refreshing new treatment of the Scottish Play. The pub crowd will love it! Shakespeare productions are frequently accused of stuffiness and dense language. But just occasionally an adaptation will break down these … Continue reading

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: 4**** The Weatherman – Park Theatre 200 #TheWeatherman @parktheatre

Tweetingit: 4* A harrowing story of good men turning bad at the hands of an unscrupulous landlord. Human trafficking could never be pleasant viewing; but it is something we ignore at our peril. We usually see theatre as a brief … 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
