Here’s our top ten most popular reviews and interviews of 2021….
Review of Shit-Faced Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Leicester Square Theatre: July saw us paying a visit to the Leicester Square Theatre to catch Shit-Faced Shakespeare’s own unique take on Shakespeare’s tragedy. It was our first time seeing the company and was certainly the most entertaining take of the play we had ever seen!
Review of The Mermaid of Black Conch by Monique Roffey: while it took us a while to get into this book, by the end we were throughly mesmerised by the way in which this story gradually unfolded. This is why we described it as being “gentle and thought provoking book is clear sighted in the way in which it examines themes of love and loss.”
Review of Death Drop, Garrick Theatre: in May we had a hilarious time at this murder mystery with a twist. This naughty tribute to the world of murder mystery created by Agatha Christie certainly lifted the spirits thanks to a delightful cast that included Willam Belli,Latrice Royale and Myra Dubois.
Review of Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser, Victoria and Albert Museum: it was so lovely to be able to be able to return to the V&A to catch this extraordinarily designed exhibition that took us down the rabbit hole to explore the impact and background of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As always, there was plenty to be seen and the depth of research was quite amazing.
Review of Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience: ever wanted to immersive yourself completely in a piece of art? Well in August we got a a chance to with this neatly formed experience that took you into Van Gogh’s world- even if in places it felt lacking in depth it was truly a soothing and interesting experience.
Review of A Christmas Carol, Dickens Theatre Company: we began the year by watching the company’s two handed production which was “very authentic and close to the original story. Really worth a watch.” It was so well done that you were completely drawn into the world created by the cast.
Interview with John Owen-Jones: last year we were lucky enough to chat to the actor about marking his 50th Birthday with a concert at the Cadogan Hall.
Review of The Great Gatsby, Immersive LDN : this immersive production of The Great Gatsby really brings the 1920’s to life in a vivid way and you really do feel though you are part of the parties and character’s experiences throughout.
Review of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, London Palladium: over the Summer, we took a trip to the London Palladium to catch this new production of the classic musical. It certainly left audiences with smiles on their faces with its exuberant joy that made it impossible to resist.
Interview with Oliver Ormson: we chatted to the actor about bringing Frozen the Musical to London and taking on the role of Prince Hans.
