Review: 4**** Bed Peace: The Battle of Yohn and Joko, The Cockpit Theatre @cockpittheatre @craftheatre

Tweetingit: 4* A snap shot of John Lennon in his immediate post Beatles period. The peace warrior is often lost in the narrative, but recovers for a rousing sing song! John Lennon once said when the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will be at peace. We might consign these wordsContinue reading “Review: 4**** Bed Peace: The Battle of Yohn and Joko, The Cockpit Theatre @cockpittheatre @craftheatre”

Coming up – West End Eurovision 2019! One of the best nights out you will have this year! @madtrust #WEEurovision2019

Sequins, spandex and glitter balls at the ready!I went to this event last year and not only is it something which raises a huge amount of money for an incredible cause but it is a FABULOUS night out. The West End casts of Aladdin, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Follies, Mamma Mia, Only Fools and Horses,Continue reading “Coming up – West End Eurovision 2019!

Review: 4**** Anne Steele: Made Out of Stars Venue: Crazy Coqs – Live at Zédel @theannesteele

It is always a pleasure to visit Zédel, just a stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus. A small all-day café on the ground floor conceals the stairs down to a grand art deco entertainment complex, comprising a Parisian-style brasserie, a stylish cocktail bar and a fairly unique music venue. The Crazy Coqs cabaret is capable ofContinue reading “Review: 4**** Anne Steele: Made Out of Stars Venue: Crazy Coqs – Live at Zédel @theannesteele”

Review: 5***** The Life I Lead. Park Theatre @LifeILeadTour ‏#milesjupp #marypoppins @LifeILeadTour ‏ @ParkTheatre

In a nutshell: this is a beautifully poignant, balanced and emotional narrative told with ease, as if one were reminiscing with an old friend. If all you know about the life and career of David Tomlinson is that he once portrayed Mr. Banks in Disney’s Mary Poppins then I encourage you to witness this cleverlyContinue reading “Review: 5***** The Life I Lead.

Review: 4**** Billy Bishop Goes To War. Southwark Playhouse @SwkPlay #BillyBishopGoesToWar

An engaging story of a young Canadian called into WWI by the British Empire. One of the most decorated pilots of the war, Billy was an Ace Pilot.  Great acting and lively singing make this sad-sounding story a pleasure to watch. Based on the true story of a Canadian First World War Ace, the playContinue reading “Review: 4**** Billy Bishop Goes To War. Southwark Playhouse @SwkPlay #BillyBishopGoesToWar”

Review 3*** Romance Romance @abovethestag

Tweeting it: Bawdy Victorian Music Hall entertainment in the 21st century. Not for those who seek subtlety in their innuendo 3*** I didn’t expect to feel like I was at the panto when I went along to Above The Stag Theatre to see their musical Romance Romance in March, but that’s exactly where my brainContinue reading “Review 3*** Romance Romance @abovethestag”

Review: 5***** Six the musical at Arts Theatre London – JUST WOW!

Who wants to be a Spice Girl when you can be a Queen? I think that the hardest reviews to write are the ones like these and, while it is so very exciting when something comes along that makes you speechless, it makes this job very hard to do. Six is one of those shows!Continue reading “Review: 5***** Six the musical at Arts Theatre London – JUST WOW!”

Review: 4**** Gingerline’s The Grand Expedition @gingerline #immersive dining #GLExpedition #GrandExpedition

Gingerline’s The Grand Expedition certainly lives up to its name. An innovative and fully immersive dining experience that is quirky, action packed and offers something for everyone. Set slightly off the beaten track (but still on the Victoria Line) the location remains a secret until late in the day, retaining an element of the unknownContinue reading “Review: 4**** Gingerline’s The Grand Expedition @gingerline #immersive dining #GLExpedition #GrandExpedition”

Review: 3*** Rip it up Garrick Theatre @RipItUpTheShow @AstonMerrygold ‏ @mcflyharry, @JayMcGuiness @louissmith1989

Tweetingit: 3* Three boy band members and an Olympic gymnast team up to re-imagine a 60s pop music show. Think Strictly Come Dancing meets the Rock ‘n’ Roll Years. A muddled concept just about works with competant staging; but is still great fun. I really wasn’t sure what to make of the publicity shots forContinue reading “Review: 3*** Rip it up Garrick Theatre @RipItUpTheShow @AstonMerrygold ‏ @mcflyharry, @JayMcGuiness @louissmith1989”

Review: 4**** All in a Row – Southwark Playhouse @allinarowplay @swkplay @FunkSmuggler @CharlieBrooks0 @dominicmshaw @Otodyn

Tweetingit: The story of a couple trying to cope with an autistic child is not easy viewing. Amid the negative publicity and controversy of this show you will discover a bravely written, brilliantly acted piece of modern theatre which needs to be seen. Playwright Alex Oates seemingly doesn’t believe in doing things the easy way.Continue reading “Review: 4**** All in a Row – Southwark Playhouse @allinarowplay @swkplay @FunkSmuggler @CharlieBrooks0 @dominicmshaw @Otodyn”
