Review: 5***** Miss Saigon Norwich Theatre Royal @MissSaigonUK @soohakim23 @chuckmarbella @TheatreRNorwich

#Tweetingit – 5***** Wow, simply amazing! Powerfully emotive, energetic and sensitive – Miss Saigon has it all. Last night I attended the press night of Miss Saigon at Norwich’s Theatre Royal and honestly I was so impressed with everything – from the singing to the set design.  Having never seen the show, but knowing aContinue reading “Review: 5***** Miss Saigon Norwich Theatre Royal @MissSaigonUK @soohakim23 @chuckmarbella @TheatreRNorwich”

Review: 2** The Yellow Wallpaper – Omnibus Theatre @Omnibus_Theatre

The marketing for this show is a striking image of an agonised figure reaching through a yellow wall, I was therefore quite ready for an atmospheric piece and a sense of ominous danger. The production is based upon an original short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, published in 1892. We are introduced to the sarcasticContinue reading “Review: 2** The Yellow Wallpaper – Omnibus Theatre @Omnibus_Theatre”

Review: 4**** Fusion Theatre’s Stories from Around the World at Islington’s Pleasance Theatre  @thelondonfusion @TanyaChainey @ThePleasance

There’s always a certain amount of trepidation when one takes a four-year-old to the theatre.  A darkened room filled with strangers is not their usual environment. This means there is always a considerable risk that you will be the parent dragging a fractious, bored, crying pre-schooler across everyone’s eye line to prevent them spoiling theContinue reading “Review: 4**** Fusion Theatre’s Stories from Around the World at Islington’s Pleasance Theatre  @thelondonfusion @TanyaChainey @ThePleasance”

Review: 3*** The Poetry We Make – The Vaults @VAULTFestival @_flugelman

#Tweetingit –  3*** has its moments but over-elaborates a simple concept i.e. that it’s ok to be different. Interesting use of a Dolly Parton though. The Vaults at Waterloo have been quietly building a reputation for daring and innovative theatrical productions. Buried deep under the railway arches, it is well named as a maze ofContinue reading “Review: 3*** The Poetry We Make – The Vaults @VAULTFestival @_flugelman”

Review: 5***** The Band The Marlowe Theatre Canterbury @TheBandMusical @marlowetheatre @garybarlow

  #Tweetingit – 5***** a nostalgia-fuelled show, filled with Take That hits, and a touching, tear-jerking, comical and highly entertaining storyline about friendship, loss, and fandom – what more can you possibly want? Firstly – this is a long review. If you get to the end, thank you for your Patience. “Another Jukebox musical? PleaseContinue reading “Review: 5***** The Band The Marlowe Theatre Canterbury @TheBandMusical @marlowetheatre @garybarlow”

Review: 2** Gallowglass – Norwich Theatre Royal – @MGTheatreCo @TheatreRNorwich

  From the pen of one of the world’s greatest thriller writers, Ruth Rendell (writing as Barbara Vine), comes a tale of kidnap and murder (eventually!). When Joe was saved from the path of a London tube, it wasn’t without consequence – his rescuer, Sandor, told him “your life belongs to me”. Taking advantage of Joe’sContinue reading “Review: 2** Gallowglass – Norwich Theatre Royal – @MGTheatreCo @TheatreRNorwich”

Review: 3*** for newbies. 4**** for fans. Steptoe and Son Museum of Comedy @museumofcomedy ‏

  Steptoe and Son, for those unaware (as I was), was a long-running British television show active from 1962-65, and again from 1970-74. I must admit that whilst not the biggest fan of the genre, (if I wanted to listen to barely comprehensible Cockneys, I could just go see my family) the show was aContinue reading “Review: 3*** for newbies. 4**** for fans.

A review of this will follow but I was lucky enough to speak Joe Ball, the Director of Revolution and also Artistic Director of Exit Productions. But first – here is an overview of theContinue reading “Interview: Joe Ball, the Director of Revolution and Artistic Director of Exit Productions @VaultFestival @exitprodu @Kraydius”

Review: 3*** Austen the musical at Mirth, Marvel and Maud @MirthMarvelE17 @AustenMusical

When I was offered the opportunity to review Austen the musical, I approached the evening with hesitancy and intrigue.  Hesitancy, because I’m always a little tentative when it comes to musicals –I’ve just never been a fan off all-singing narratives.  And intrigue, because I had a chance to learn a little bit more about theContinue reading “Review: 3*** Austen the musical at Mirth, Marvel and Maud @MirthMarvelE17 @AustenMusical”
