Latest reviews

Farinelli and the King Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, London

Theatre  This production has moments that are utterly transporting: the combination of the human voice at its most dizzyingly pristine and the glitter of candlelight is a heady one.

The Honey Man Birmingham Repertory Theatre

Theatre  Birmingham actor and writer Tyrone Huggins has penned and takes the title role in this humorous and moving two-hander set in the grounds of an English manor house.

Glasgow Academy Musical Theatre Arts Showcase 2015 Criterion, London

Student Showcase  A burst of colour, movement and song herald the opening of the Glasgow Academy Musical Theatre Arts showcase, which this year is celebrating 21 years of preparing students for one of the most competitive disciplines in performing arts.

Orfeo ed Euridice Theatre Royal, Glasgow

Opera  Ashley Page, one-time artistic director of Scottish Ballet, makes his Scottish Opera debut directing a deliciously abstract and dance-orientated production of Orfeo ed Euridice.

Muswell Hill Park Theatre, London

Theatre  With so many catastrophic events happening around the world it’s easy to miss the little tragedies that pepper contemporary living.

Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs Greenwich Theatre, London

Theatre  With noise levels fit to shiver the stage timbers and frequent injunctions to join in with the fun, this exuberant collision of two child-magnets, pirates and dinosaurs, certainly brims with enthusiasm.

Yeh Shen Polka Theatre, London

Theatre  Coloured lanterns, clear storytelling, accomplished acting and plenty of charm make this Chinese version of the Cinderella story an enjoyable piece of theatre for over sixes.

Yen Royal Exchange Studio, Manchester

Theatre  Since Anna Jordan won the Bruntwood Prize back in 2013, she’s had two other plays staged, Freak and Chicken Shop (in London, at Theatre 503 and the Park Theatre respectively), works which both in their way unpicked the psychological and emotional impact of living in a highly sexualised culture.

Fireworks (Al’ab Nariya) Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, London

Theatre  The Royal Court has an excellent record of producing plays from different countries.

Cats London Palladium

Theatre  When I first saw the return of Cats to London last December, I have to confess I was a bit disappointed: after 21 years of the wraparound totally immersive experience of the show’s original run at the New London, there was something bigger but flatter about seeing it in the IMAX-scaled pros arch version at the London Palladium.
