JOHN – The National Theatre

  John is a show about many things. It’s about domestic abuse, drug use and development of sexuality. The question is whether the combination of these widely different issues work within one storyline. The plot is narrated by the movement devised by the company, DV8. The physicality cannot be faulted. Their style remains theatrical, yet […]

Facade – Arts Depot

  Entering the space at the Artsdepot, Finchley you are instantly greeted by Claude – played by George Fuller – acting as the restaurant manager. He calls the attention of one of the performers playing waiters who shows you to your table. The layout of the space is cleverly utilised to aid their intention of […]

ONCE The Musical – The Phoenix Theatre

  Once is originally based upon the 2006 film of the same name. The same music creative’s from the film kept their songs in the show when it opened on Broadway in 2012 and then the West End in 2013. The show is unfortunately closing at the Phoenix before going on tour on the 21st […]

Not About Heroes – Trafalgar Studios

  Not About Heroes is a tribute. Not just to Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon but to every soldier who fought in the First World War. Like the Tower of London poppies, it represents each and every soldier. But not only the ones who died, those who lived with the horrific memories of what they […]

Jay Villiers (Accolade) has Tea with Wilma

Tell me about yourself and some of your career highlights so far. I guess I’ve been lucky, in a career that has now lasted (I can’t believe it) over 30 years (seems like 5 minutes), I’ve had the privilege of working with the most wonderful people. I’ve been directed by and acted with Dame Judi […]

Wendi Peters has Tea With Wilma

You are probably best known for playing Cilla Battersby-Brown in Coronation Street, which you did for four years. You have also been in some great theatrical production like Into The Woods, Noises Off and most recently The Mystery of Edwin Drood. What are some of the roles you have had over the years that you […]

Rock of Ages – New Wimbledon Theatre

  As a show, Rock of Ages is definitely a grower trying to be a shower. Jam packed with 80s glam and stadium rock hits, it is a surprisingly enjoyable juke-box musical that the audience certainly enjoy. But it does beg the question, is it a good show? The first half of Act One is […]

Accolade – St James Theatre

  Set in a rather warm environment for the St James Theatre, the lights dim as the last audience members take their seats to expose a carpeted stage – as what can only be described as a study. Holding a desk with a large book and type writer upon it, a telephone, an old fashioned […]

Worzel Gummidge the Musical

  The Childrens TV show Worzel Gummidge was a popular choice in the 1980’s that had kids all around the country trying to take their heads off and talk to scare crows.
