Review of Radio at the Arcola Theatre: this week we attended the press night for this revival of Al Smith’s play. While it was an excellent production, we felt that it was lacking something to make it extra special…

Review of On Your Feet! at the London Coliseum: with London sizzling in the heat at the moment, this is the perfect time for the musical based on the life of Gloria Estefan to be in London. It will certainly prove to be the ultimate feel-good show of the summer.
