Discover what has made some of our most popular reads for April 2022….
Review of To Kill a Mockingbird, Gielgud Theatre: our most popular review of the month is our thoughts on the critically acclaimed production based on Harper Lee’s classic novel, adapted by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Bartlett Sher. We describe it as “A powerful and mesmerising production.”
Review round up of Black Love, Kiln Theatre: April saw us rounding up the reviews for Chinonyerem Odimba’s Black Love that recently closed after a limited run at the theatre.
Inside the rehearsals of The Corn is Green: now officially open at the National Theatre, we got to share some of the images from the rehearsal room of this revival of Emlyn Williams’s play, directed by Dominic Cooke.
Review of Bonnie & Clyde the Musical, Arts Theatre: we were also fortunate enough to attend the opening night of Nick Winston’s full scale production of this musical, starring Frances Mayli McCann and Jordan Luke Gage as the dynamic duo at the centre of it all – there is plenty to be enjoyed musically and in terms of production value!
Review of Rabbit Hole, Union Theatre: we were also fortunate enough to catch Front Foot Theatre’s production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s play. While the production itself was good, we did feel a little more work could have gone into the play itself.
Review of Marys Seacole, Donmar Warehouse: it does have to be said: this was not exactly what we were expecting. The play was at its strongest when it focused on Mary Seacole herself as opposed to making comparisons between her struggles and the struggles that exist today – which didn’t come across as strongly as it should.
Preview of The Middle, The National Theatre: now in previews at the National Theatre, you can find out more about the latest collaboration between writer David Eldridge and director Polly Findlay on this play about 21st century marriage.
