Medea, @SohoPlace: if you are a fan of Greek mythology, then you will not want to miss this incredible production adapted by Robinson Jeffers from Euripides’s original play . Staged in the round, this compelling revival of the story features a truly memorable performance from Sophie Okonedo as the central character. The theatre itself is also extremely beautiful and well worth a visit in itself.
A Little Life, Richmond Theatre: ahead of its runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre and Savoy Theatre, the English premiere directed by Ivo Van Hove is playing for a limited run from the 14th to the 18th March at the Richmond Theatre. Based on the critically acclaimed book by Hanya Yanagihara, the production stars: James Norton (Jude), Luke Thompson (Willem), Omari Douglas (JB), Zach Wyatt (Malcolm), Elliot Cowan (Brother Luke/Doctor Traylor/Caleb), Zubin Varla (Harold), Nathalie Armin (Ana), and Emilio Doorgasingh (Andy).
Brilliant Jerks, Southwark Playhouse: for those who enjoyed Joseph Carlton’s previous work including Anna X (which played in the West End last year), you might want to pop along to the Southwark Playhouse to catch Brilliant Jerks – a play about one entrepreneur’s idea of just tapping a button to get a taxi and the impact this idea then has (yes it might be based on the creation of a certain app we have all used at some point..). It is only on until the 25th March so you will need to be quick to catch it!
Guys & Dolls, Bridge Theatre: this is the first musical to be presented at the Bridge Theatre and it is a wonderfully colourful and enjoyable production. So if you enjoy a classic musical with plenty of catchy songs then you will need to catch this production which is currently booking until September. Check out our five reasons to catch it here.
& Juliet, Shaftesbury Theatre: sadly, we will be waving sadly goodbye to this musical, a re-mixed take on the story of Romeo and Juliet, featuring songs written by Max Martin. The musical will be having its final performance on the 25th March. If you love pop music and want something entertaining to watch then make sure you catch it soon! Read our full review here.
