REVIEW: MISS NIGHTINGALE (Hippodrome Casino) ★★★★★

Now in its sixth incarnation since its conception in 2011, Miss Nightingale has taken up residency at the Hippodrome Casino in London after a successful run at The Vaults in Waterloo.

REVIEW: V FOR VICTORY (Stockwell Playhouse) ★★★★

D-Day, the Blitz, Churchill, and the bombing of the East End of London; everything you might expect from a new musical set during the Second World War. ‘V for Victory’, delivers up something different, instead telling the less recanted story of the Nazi invasion of a British territory, the Channel Islands, and in particular, the […]

REVIEW: CRAZY FOR YOU (Milton Keynes Theatre) ★★★

There seems to be a craze currently for churning out the old musicals; some like Half a Sixpence get a bit of an update and become just as popular, if not more so than the original. Others just don’t quite seem to hit the spot. Crazy For You originally opened on Broadway in 1930 under […]
