The phrase ‘One Man Show’ can strike fear into the hearts of many, however Paul Carroll’s ‘Forty Shades of Strawberry Blond’, at the Leicester Square Theatre left me pleasantly surprised. In his hour long show, Carroll switches from one character to another at break neck speed, the next even sillier and more obscure than the […]

REVIEW: THE ADVENTURES OF DICK (Leicester Square Theatre) ★★★★

‘Tis the season for outlandish and exciting pantomimes, and what better way to enhance your tired-out, classic idea of what a panto is than to thrust (literally) your way into a new way of looking at one? If you haven’t been to an adult panto before then you’re seriously missing out on what Cilla would […]

REVIEW: La Soirèe (Leicester Square) ★★★★

Christmas is coming. The lights are up and the air smells of mulled wine. In Leicester Square a collection of stalls has appeared, including the famous Spiegeltent. It’s by no means as grand as the one on Southbank, which does mean that there isn’t quite as much flexibility for certain acts. That said, they’ve done […]

Molly Wobbly – Leicester Square Theatre

I have to say that playing Jean in American Psycho at The Almeida Theatre was most certainly a career highlight for me, it was challenging and such an interesting and controversial piece to work on- […]

Pam Ann has Tea With Wilma

Pam Ann is the foul mouthed Australian comedian who has been offending Airlines and the people that work on them for years. She is bringing her hilarious act to London’s Leicester Square Theatre from March 26th for a month long run. I caught up with her for a cup of tea and a chat about […]


Sam Turrell is about to star in Santaphrenia (the dirty Christmas musical) at the Leicester Square Theatre. I caught up with him and the Musical Director of the show Dean Austin, for a chat about the show. Can you tell me about yourself and your career highlights to date? Dean: I’ve been in London working […]

Varla Jean Merman / Well Strung

Wilma’s Rating **** I’ll be honest with you dears, I really didn’t fancy this show. But I am so glad I went as I had one of the best nights ever (well at least this week). Drag Sensation Varla Jean Merman has returned to London after ten years and her Book of Merman show (which […]
