The Hartlepool Monkey

11th Oct 17: Brilliantly performed and presented with humour and historical interest. Impressive representation of the monkey. Well worth seeing.

Fabulous show. Emotional and truly engaging. Great acting and direction. Universal themes that touch way beyond the lgbt audience at this friendly venue

3rd Oct 17: A great revival of this period play with some of the funniest, and most realistic, depictions of sex I've seen on stage ...
La boheme (Royal Opera House, West End)

3rd Oct 17: Of course this production is beautifully played and sung, as every production from the ROH should be. But it should surely be intelligent too. And it isn't. In fact some aspects are so bad as to be ridiculous, and even comical. The worst of these horrendous moments is the Amazing Moving Shed that utterly ruins the climactic scenes by shuffling awkwardly about in the snow. Yes, it shuffles, and no, it doesn't shuffle off. It sort of parks itself out of the way of the dying, but in doing so it removes any sense of tragedy. All right, one has to suspend one's brain for many operas, and particularly for this one, but there are so many ghastly moments in this that one wonders if any intelligent person had a look at it before its debut. Don't believe me? Go look. Martin Corrick

27th Sep 17: Tremendous concert! Justin still has the voice for all the famous Moody songs plus his own numbers. Still sounds as good live as on his albums. Great show!
My Fair Lady (Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol)

27th Sep 17: I felt that many of the moves were un-motivated and too many actors were leaning forward to speak .. accents were a bit off ... pace was poor and sound and lights patchy ... an evening full of energy and some nice voices though!
Cabaret (New Wimbledon Theatre, Outer London)
4 Catherine Aylward
21st Sep 17: A powerful rendition of a popular musical. Louise Redknapp can certainly sing, she has an amazing voice did the songs justice. However, it was a shame she didn't dance, I would have expected that in her big numbers. I also felt she didn't quite capture the tragic vulnerability of Sally Bowles. Will Young really made up for everything in the show. He was truly amazing in the role, his facial expressions, voice, acting and dancing were all captivating. All in all a fantastic show, a must see.
The Caretaker (Bristol Old Vic, Bristol)

15th Sep 17: A brilliant production of a beautiful play .. loved it
Singin' in the Rain (Melton Theatre, Melton Mowbray)
5 Carol Faver
15th Sep 17: Saw this show 14th Sept. Absolutely enthralled with the energy and vitality of the cast...the dancing was terrific and a must see for anyone who enjoys the 'old musicals' I believe there are some future stars in the making watch this space!

The Sword and the Dope (Waterloo East Theatre, Inner London)

The Castle Builder
5 Fan number one
2nd Sep 17: It makes you think what are you on this earth for. Go see it and wonder. Great music and active art!
The Revlon Girl
5 Fiona Thirsk
17th Aug 17: I have just seen The Revlon Girl at Edinburgh festival. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The play was performed by 5 perfectly cast women, with minimal scenery and was very moving, very funny, and ultimately uplifting. Don't forget your tissues!
Blue Stockings (The Yard, Outer London)
5 Steve Johanssen
16th Aug 17: Enjoyed watching this historical play with some great performances by some of Britain's up and coming talent !
Boondocks (Underbelly at Cowgate, Edinburgh)
5 Todd Baxter
6th Aug 17: Makes you laugh, and think.
The Hunting of the Snark (Vaudeville Theatre, West End)
5 Sally Hedges
31st Jul 17: The best children's show I've ever seen!
