Very Pleasant Sensations

Rating *** Reviewed by Tony Peters Set in 1937, writer Paul Guest’s first play tells the story of a meeting at London’s Jermyn Street Bathhouse between writers Christopher Isherwood and W H Auden and the composer Benjamin Britten.

WAG the Musical

Wilma’s Rating **** Is WAG the musical as awful as it sounds? I went to watch it with low hopes and very low expectations and it was every bit as awful as I thought it would be. But before you think…. ‘Oh dear, this is a bad review’ let me tell you that I didn’t […]

Dirty Dancing

Wilma’s Rating *** Piccadilly Theatre – 18th July 2013 Until 22 February 2014 I’ve never been a fan of Dirty Dancing.

The Color Purple

Rating ***** Reviewed by Michaela Clement-Hayes Menier Chocolate Factory – 17th July 2013 When an acclaimed novel is turned into a musical, the worry is always that it will lose its charm and the story will be overpowered by the music and vision of the creative team. Happily though, The Color Purple is one of […]

Angela: It’s a memory play about a couple – childhood sweethearts at the end of their journey. It’s about all the things that they should have said to each other but never did. It’s their last chance. John: […]

The Three Musketeers

Rating *** Reviewed by Michaela Clement-Hayes The Three Musketeers – St James Theatre – 13th July 2013 An acapella comedy musical was the tagline for this production, which obviously is incredibly intriguing. So with anticipation we headed to the St James Theatre to see Barbershopera’s The Three Musketeers. Set in France, the story tells of […]
