Fenella Woolgar has Tea With Wilma

The monarch – Liz. Her most powerful subject – Maggie. Two enduring icons born six months apart. One destined to rule, the other elected to lead.  But when the stiff upper lip softened and the gloves came off, which one had the upper hand? Handbagged is the ‘wickedly funny’ (Evening Standard) new play that opens the […]

The Faulty Towers Dining Experience

The Faulty Towers Dining Experience is a global entertainment show, produced by Interactive Theatre International, which has been delighting diners around the world since 1997. Playing at London’s Charing Cross Hotel (as well as touring around the UK in parallel) diners are treated to a typical 70’s three course meal with Faulty Towers favourites Sybil, […]

Three Sisters

Great yawning silences punctured by hysterical outbursts and the intermittent taunt of a ticking clock provide the perfect soundtrack for the latest incarnation of Chekhov’s Three Sisters. In the rather cavernous Southwark Playhouse, the behemoth of Russian theatre blooms anew, carefully tended by Anya Reiss, whose original script and unique approach haul the drama into […]

A Spoonful Of Sherman

“Winds From the East… Mist Coming In…” The opening words and chords of this practically perfect evening were already enough to send shivers down my spine. The Sherman Brothers may have won numerous awards (including Tonys, Grammys and Oscars), but with having had so much success on film, they can often be overlooked and underrated […]

Finian’s Rainbow

There are plenty of older productions that are still beloved by theatre lovers. Cats, Top Hat and The Mousetrap are just a few that are as magical several decades after they were first seen on the West End. Others don’t. Sadly Finian’s Rainbow (first performed on Broadway in 1947) is of the latter group. A […]

Twelve Angry Men

Twelve Angry Men – currently playing at The Garrick Theatre, is a beautifully intelligent piece of drama that I would highly recommend seeing. Originally penned by Reginald Rose, this impressive piece is still as relevant in 2014 as it was in 1954 raising questions, casting doubt and provoking deep thought. Set in 1954, we join […]

Cool Rider

The 1982 cult classic film Grease 2 starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Max Caulfield never quite lived up to the expectations set by the 1978 blockbuster hit Grease starring Olivia Newton John and John Travolta. It did however earn itself a following which is evident in this new concert versions of the show, Cool Rider at […]
