REVIEW: 42nd Street (Theatre Royal Drury Lane) ★★★★★

From its opening overture to its infectious toe-tapping finale, 42nd Street is pure theatre. I don’t actually think shows get more theatrical than this. Chorus guys and gals tap-dance their way through a story about the production of a new musical hit, set in the heart of New York’s legendary theatre district, with one delightfully hummable […]

StageCon “postponed”

Following on from my blog about StageCon earlier this week, in which I promised to let you know if I heard anything more, the organisers have announced they are postponing the event until 2019, passing control to United Theatrical as Producer and General Manager. StageCon was originally planned to run over the weekend of 3 & […]

REVIEW: Collabro – Road To The Royal Albert Hall ★★

Collabro are back with their recently-released fourth album, “Road To The Royal Albert Hall“, so named in honour of their upcoming 2019 concert date which presumably they’re quite happy about (and I’m guessing “Road To Southend-On-Sea” wouldn’t have had quite the same ring. Although I’m sure it’s lovely). The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ winners are clearly […]

This production explores the taboo of mental illness within the death community using a cast of four, […]

REVIEW: KIDS PLAY (Above the Stag Theatre) ★★★★

We have before us a pleasantly decorated Brighton hotel room; the air is thick with tension as a smartly-dressed gentleman paces back and forth, watched by a comparatively younger man in a band T-shirt and shorts. Greg is our older man, and he is unhappy with Theo’s arrival. We discover that we are witnessing an […]
