    THEATRE REVIEW | Follies, National Theatre, London

    ★★★★ | Follies If you are a huge theatre fan, love musicals, and worship the ground Stephen Sondheim walks on, then you’ll love Follies.

    THEATRE REVIEW | Salomé, National Theatre, London

    ★★★★| Salomé, National Theatre, London It was always going to be hard to produce a version of Salomé on the stage. It’s a story that’s mythical, biblical, violent, and perhaps a bit confusing. A new version of the show is now playing at The National Theatre, and it’s executed beautifully. Staged by Director Yael Farber, […]

  • THEATRE REVIEW | Angels in America, National Theatre, London

    ★★★★★| Angels in America, National Theatre, London It’s seven and a half hours long, and it’s shown in two parts, but Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes is well worth a watch.

  • THEATRE REVIEW | War House, National Theatre

    ★★★★★ | War House, National Theatre First off, don’t hate me. Please don’t hate me, but I have to confess… I got up close and personal with Joey last night in Salford and had a great time. Who is Joey? Joey has chestnut hair, flowing in the breeze, he’s strong, muscular, has great legs – all […]


    ★★★ | The Roof A door opens and an immaculate figure steps out onto a roof. Knives are sharpened and the game begins. Set within the suspended reality of a brutal and unforgiving game, this mix of intimate three-dimensional sound and free running aims to transport the audience into the body of a reluctant hero, […]

  • THEATRE REVIEW | From Morning To Midnight

    ★★★ | From Morning To Midnight “For those who like that sort of thing, that is the sort of thing they like.” I felt rather like Miss Jean Brodie after seeing From Morning to Midnight at the Lyttleton Theatre last night. Evidently there were plenty around me who liked the play rather more than I […]

  • THEATRE REVIEW | Children Of The Sun

    ★★★ | Children Of The Sun A Maxim Gorky classic play, adapted by Andrew Upton, is a deep and philosophically driven piece set during a cholera epidemic, which works on many significant levels. On the surface its comedic approach could be mistaken as a light hearted play, but below the surface lies a distinct feeling […]
