The Great Gatsby

Rating *** Reviewed by Michaela Clement Hayes Riverside Studios – 24th May 2013 The Great Gatsby is one of those stories that people love or hate, so undoubtedly the musical version will receive the same mixed reception. Set in post-war America, Nick (Sid Phoenix) befriends his party animal neighbour Jay Gatsby (Michael Lindall), who discovers […]

To Kill A Mockingbird

Rating ***** Reviewed by Michaela Clement Hayes Open Air Theatre Regents Park – 23rd May Set in the American South during the 1930s, Harper Lee’s tale of racial tension is told through the eyes of a young girl who is just beginning to understand the adult world. Blankets and umbrellas at the ready (plus a […]

Avenue Q

Rating *** Reviewed by Jamie Chapman Dixon When I heard that Avenue Q would be gracing us again at fringe level I was very excited to get down to watch it. Unfortunately as most comebacks, it was a slight let down. Casting wise I wasn’t overly impressed, however Will Jennings and Josh Wilmott both put […]

Relatively Speaking

Rating **** Reviewed by Tony Peters Following on from Absent Friends and A Chorus of Disapproval, the Alan Ayckbourn revival continues with this beautifully played production of his very first West End hit in 1967. Director Lindsay Posner retains the late 1960s setting, with just a couple of lines cut from the script that, with […]


Wilma’s Rating *** It’s more Phantom of the Amateur than Phantom of the Opera in this, the world premiere of Maury Yestons Phantom. A story similar to the Andrew Lloyd Webber version but not quite. Written before the Lloyd Webber version, this musical never made it to stage after the success of the current west […]

The Woman In Black (West End)

The Woman In Black has been frightening audiences for 25 years, with its ghost story about a man, sent to a dead woman’s house to go through her paperwork for legal reasons. The audience are on edge, waiting for something scary to happen and any slight flicker of light leaves teenage girls screaming and laughing […]

Kieran Brown

Kieran Brown has been in West End shows such as Les Miserables, Wicked and Love Never Dies. He is currently staring as the Phantom in ‘Phantom’. A musical very different to Andrew Lloyd Webbers version but with a similar story and characters you will recognise. I caught up with Kieran at Ye Olde Rose and […]

Velma Celli

Rating **** Reviewed by Michaela Clement Hayes   So it’s a Friday night in London. Always on the look out for something different, I headed to the Hippodrome Casino to see the show everyone was talking about – Velma Celli, ‘the only all live singing, all dancing extravaganza in London’. Cabaret is always fun because […]


Rating *** Reviewed by Tony Peters   In 1916 Leslie “Hutch” Hutchinson moved from his home on the island of Grenada to New York where he became a jazz pianist. In 1920s Paris he met composer Cole Porter and the two became lovers. With Porter’s patronage, Hutch was soon the toast of Parisian café society, […]
