Review of Matilda The Musical

Review of Matilda The Musical Move over, Billy Elliot. Matilda the Musical takes the trophy for Best British Musical. For years, the gong for Best British Musical has always gone to Billy Elliot, with audience and critics alike flocking back time and time again to the Victoria Palace Theatre. However, the diabolical Miss Trunchbull and the revolutionary spirit of a little girl named Matilda have firmly taken the title from the ballet-dancing boy.

Chiwetel Ejiofor in EVERYMAN at the National Theatre

EVERYMAN at the National Theatre The National Theatre has been under close scrutiny recently because they’re presenting the first season under the new artistic directorship of Rufus Norris who takes over from the much loved Nicholas Hytner.

The first production, directed by new associate Lyndsey Turner, was an unexpected revival of LIGHT SHINING IN BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, a lesser known work from the acclaimed playwright, Carol Churchill. A friend bought me a ticket so, free of the responsibility to review, we were both able to flee at the interval. Although visually opulent, the first half at least, was so wordy and passionless that it made your heart sink as it grappled with civil war politics. I think the plan was that it was supposed to resonate with today’s political climate. Several prominent critics feel it does so don’t take my word for it but I was easily tempted away by the promise of pizza and a pint.

Review of Oppenheimer at the Vaudeville Theatre

Oppenheimer at the Vaudeville Theatre I love it when I've not only been entertained but when I've learnt something too. OPPENHEIMER delivers on both fronts.

Review of Buyer and Cellar at the Menier Chocolate Factory

Buyer & Cellar I usually shudder at the prospect of watching a one person play. They're often more about an actor’s ego and a producer saving money on cast wages than a great night out. However I’d heard so many good things about this show in New York that I was very excited to see it. I'm happy to report that it more than lived up to my expectations.

As you discover in a brief prologue, Barbra Streisand has built a private shopping mall beneath her mansion, stocked with all her belongings, where she wanders alone pretend-shopping. Author Jonathan Tollins has imagined how bizarre it would be to work there and created a young gay man who's asked to do so. The result is fictional but, as he assures us in the programme, plenty of people have told him that the bizarre details are accurate.

Review Ralph Fiennes in MAN & SUPERMAN at the National Theatre

MAN & SUPERMAN MAN AND SUPERMAN is massive. It’s massive because of its playing time (anything up to four hours) the density of the philosophy it contains and because it’s a major event when an actor is deemed on top form enough to play the central character, John Tanner.
