Gypsy (New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich)
2 John
24th Jun 17: Clunky production. Very amateurish. Yes I know it's an amateur production but slick it ain't. Far too ambitious and far too long. It had it's moments but not enough to save it from being toe curling awful at times. Rose just couldn't belt out the hits although her acting was good.
Islands in the Stream (New Theatre, Oxford)
2 jo webb
23rd Jun 17: only ok. thought it would be better, lacked atmosphere. Thought people would be up dancing. Told could only dance in seat not in tne ailses.People didnt really get in into. Shame not fault of Kenny or Dolly just oxford new theatre. Thought it would be more fun.
La Cage aux Folles
5 Lesley Barnes

Dreamboats and Petticoats
5 Forbes Watson
18th Jun 17: We seen this musical in Glasgow on the 17 June 17, and thou rightly enjoyed all the old tunes, even sang along with the cast at the end most certainly f the audience got on their feet and danced ,clapped or sang, all round an excellent musical to see, thankyou cast of dreamboats and petticoats roll on part two.
All or Nothing - The Mod Musical
5 Susan Gibbs

A Judgement in Stone (Palace Theatre, Westcliff-on-Sea)
1 simon kent

Waiting for God
5 Hilarious!
4th Jun 17: The best laugh I've had for a while! A superb play headed by Nicola McAuliffe and Jeffrey Holland and a great supporting cast. Brilliant acting and a treat not to be missed! The timing was impeccable!
An Audience with Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe - Somewhere in Time
1 janet
31st May 17: A very disappointing show. Not enough dance routines. Too much singing, too much inane chatter about himself which was sickly. Even asked 2 members of the audience to take his shirt off on stage, and no you haven't a nice body Ian.I paid good money to watch this show but I will not recommend it to anyone. Love Brendan Cole, and Anton's show. You are not in their league.
5 Victoria
31st May 17: A great twist on a British classic. The actors were brilliant completely transfixing - I laughed and cried. Can seriously recommend this show.
It's Not the Character's Problem

26th May 17: An absolutely amazing piece of real life drama. For a young man to sit there and hold it together the way he did is a credit to himself and family,drama colleagues and tutors. Have booked to go and see it again with my wife. Cant wait to see more of this young gentlemans work. Well done and hope you get to acheive everything you aim for. Your father will be so proud watching down.
Hello Again (Theatre Royal, Windsor)
5 Angela Perry
22nd May 17: Fabulous show, if you are a Neil Diamond fan you will love it, we did and we have seen Neil 4 times in concert so not expecting too much, what a surprise it was just brilliant, Brooklyn and his band gave us a great night out, thank you.
The Wipers Times
5 Chris Turner
16th May 17: We have seen it twice at the Watermill, it was Brilliant, much better than the Ian Hislop came 5 times to see it. Well worth finding your nearest theatre for a very good night out if you can get seats
tick, tick... Boom! (Park Theatre, Inner London)
5 Michelle
14th May 17: Absolutely stunning. Flew in for the day to see a matinee and was only sorry I wasn't staying overnight so I could see it again
1 John Bell
10th May 17: Very low budget Cannot even afford Jerseys to visually identify the two actors Billed as comment on a specific race up Ventoux with backdrop filming ( not very good ) Many miles of the final 10M assent missing Cadence of riders in accurate Only redeeming feature -Only lasts an hour
Motown's Greatest Hits - How Sweet it Is
5 June
7th May 17: Absolutely fantastic performers can wait to see them again!
