REVIEW: Rebel Angel, Old Operating Theatre Museum

This fascinating and engaging play about John Keats is wonderfully brought to life with plenty of passion. The Old Operating Theatre Museum proves to be a wonderfully appropriate and atmospheric location to perform Rebel Angel – making the audience feel as up close and personal to the action as it is possible to get, making… Read More

REVIEW: Form by Corre

The musical collective’s debut album is filled with a beautiful combination of sounds that prove that contemporary classical music can work in perfect harmony with electronic music.  Blending an array of different styles of music, ‘Form’ is an album which is bold in experimentation technique, but also feels lacking in energy and passion. Yes, all… Read More

REVIEW: Footloose the Musical, Peacock Theatre

Based on the classic film, this stage adaptation has plenty of energy and is infectious from beginning to end.  If there is ever a show that celebrates freedom and breaking the rules then this is it.

Jack Rosenthal’s play celebrating the industry of the black cab and its drivers has its own charm about it but feels slight in plot.  Before Uber came along, black cabs were the key means of transport for Londoners to zoom around the capital – but when stepping into one of the taxis how many of… Read More

REVIEW: The Simon & Garfunkel Story, Lyric Theatre

Back in London following a UK and international tour, the show is wonderfully nostalgic, sure to delight fans of Simon & Garfunkel.  Having no prior knowledge of Simon & Garfunkel music excepting their biggest hits ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ and ‘Mrs Robinson’, I was fully prepared to expect a wide variety of their songs from… Read More

REVIEW: Hamlet, Park Theatre

This family orientated interpretation of Shakespeare’s play is an interesting concept but lacks depth and characterisation.  A ninety minute Hamlet plus a cast formed of three members of the same family makes for an intriguing prospect, suggesting a fresh and lively new interpretation. Unfortunately it doesn’t quite work, coming across as a selection of the… Read More
