Here’s a guide to what you have been reading about this week on Love London Love Culture…
- Preview of Alys Always at the Bridge Theatre: now in previews at the Bridge Theatre, this world premiere production directed by Nicholas Hytner is based on the novel by Harriet Lane. It is booking at the theatre until the 30th March.
- Review of Little Echoes at the Hope Theatre: also still proving popular on LLLC this week is Kirsty Herrington’s review of Tom Powell’s play which continues to play until the 9th March.
- Rip it Up, Garrick Theatre: this week LLLC’s Emma Clarendon paid a visit to see this fun filled and entertaining look at the 1960’s through the power of dance and music. Talking about it, she said: “It is unashamedly corny and can come across as formulaic in places but it contains strong and charismatic performances from its extremely talented cast.”
- Interview with Riz Meedin: the actor chatted to us about starring in Proteus Theatre’s new production of Macbeth and why as a play it is still relevant to audiences in 2019.
- Review of The Great Expedition, Gingerline, Secret Location: if you are looking for a bit something to do then LLLC can highly recommend this experience. Unfortunately we can’t give too much away as that will ruin the surprise (as you will be able to tell from our review) – but it does make for a perfect evening out!
- Review of Dinomania at the New Diorama Theatre: also still proving popular is our recent review of Dinomania now playing at the New Diorama Theatre until the 23rd March. This is the new show from Kandinsky which “showcases a fascinating story delivered with great imagination, but it feels too rushed and needs further development”.
- The Pirates of Penzance, Wilton’s Music Hall: this week saw LLLC’s Emily Schofield paying a visit to catch Sasha Regan’s production of W.S.Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan’s opera. In her review she said: “It breathes a new depth into a classic and beloved opera without losing it’s eccentric British quality.”
