REVIEW: My Fair Lady, London Coliseum

This gentle but classy production has plenty to offer those looking to experience Lerner and Loewe’s musical live. It is hard to believe that one of my very first experiences of seeing a show in the West End was a production of My Fair Lady at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and I was dazzled… Read More

REVIEW: Untitled Sparkly Vampire Play, Omnibus Theatre

While the play is an interesting examination of being confused about sexuality and identity, it feels as though its neat conclusion doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of the story. There is no doubting that Ashley Milne’s new play has a quirky charm about it to explore sexuality and journey to acceptance of who… Read More

REVIEW: The Mystery Of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, Netflix

This new documentary exploring the life and untimely death of Marilyn Monroe is fascinating in parts – but does become repetitive in a way that distracts from its purpose.

REVIEW: The Misfortune of the English, Orange Tree Theatre

Based on true events, this world premiere production features three completely engaging performances – but it does seem to run out of steam towards the end. April 17th 1936 – a group of school boys and their teacher went hiking on the Schauinsland mountain in South-Western Germany but ended up being caught up in a… Read More

REVIEW: Witness For the Prosecution, London County Hall

A new cast has entered the courtroom to bring to life this thrilling courtroom drama. It is a rare thing indeed (particularly seeing a play) to see something for a second time and knowing how it ends but to still be thoroughly engaged in seeing how the story unfolds and feeling all the thrill of… Read More

REVIEW: The Hound of the Baskervilles, Original Theatre Company (Online)

This is Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic gothic story – but not as you remember it in this family friendly and undeniably enjoyable production. What a silly, joyous and fun adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles this is. Ok so it might swerve away from the original story slightly – but there is no denying… Read More

REVIEW: Marys Seacole, Donmar Warehouse

While the play is certainly topical, it feels very disorientating – particularly when the story of Mary Seacole seems to get lost. What I was expecting from Jackie Sibblies Drury’s play highlighting the story of pioneering Jamaican nurse Mary Seacole was a straightforward biopic with her story being recounted maybe from the present day, with… Read More

REVIEW: Bonnie & Clyde, Arts Theatre

Nick Winston’s sleek production is filled with memorable touches – even if it feels as though the show itself could use slightly more character depth. What an electrifying musical this is. From Frank Wildhorn’s gorgeously diverse music and Don Black’s effective lyrics all the way through to the stylish way in which this production has… Read More
