Theatre Review: 20 July
KISS ME, KATE I have trained myself to expect the very worst of any holidays so that they never fail to exceed expectations. Try as I might, the brainwashing doesn't work when it comes to theatregoing. Admittedly, there's a handful of plays I approach...
Theatre Review: 3 August
CHARIOTS OF FIRE It isn't unheard of to leave the theatre humming the score; and who could resist Vangelis at his finest? But it is rare to leave resolving to become a better person, or at least a fitter one. Mike Bartlett's aweinspiring stage adaption...

CAROUSEL Armed with a leftover box of tissues from the Olympics, I prepared myself for the emotional challenge that the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel has forced upon me ever since I first saw the Shirley Jones/Gordon MacRae film in my youth....

JUMPY I wasn't the only one in the audience of Jumpy, April De Angelis's bruisingly funny, moving play about mothers and daughters who wondered if the playwright had bugged my house and used the evidence but with the names changed. During the interval,...

ON STAGE Music to my ears As Connie Fisher returns to the stage, our reviewer is mesmerised by a musical hit packed with show-stopping numbers... WONDERFUL TOWN You've probably never seen Bernstein's Wonderful Town and possibly can't whistle a tune...
Theatre Review: 8 June
POSH There are criticisms that come to dog politicians long beyond their brilliant careers: Ann Widdecombe's suggestion that Michael Howard had 'something of the night about him' has never gone away. For David Cameron and his chancellor George Osborne,...

WAH! WAH! GIRLS Wah! Wah! Girls is part of the World Stages London festival and you cannot fault the bold, original ambition to produce a new Bollywood-style musical set in London's East End and as much British South Asian as Bollywood. However, the...

A DOLL'S HOUSE Other people's marriages are a mystery – and endlessly fascinating. Was it Scientology that made Katie Holmes slam the door on Tom Cruise? Or was it his high heels? For Nora, in Ibsen's marvellous A Doll's House, it was the realisation...

RICHARD III Whether you've seen the play or not, you probably have an idea of the character of Shakespeare's Richard III. Referred to as a 'foul lump of deformity', he's a villain through and through. The Richard you might recall possibly has a pageboy...
Theatre Review: 17 August
CANTINA Don't be put off by the hype surrounding Cantina. It's all as good as they say it is. As you enter London Wonderground's crazy, mesmerising theatrical show in Jubilee Gardens on London's Southbank, you can't help but feel the buzz of...
A companion piece to the RSC's Julius Caesar, this creative Much Ado is set in contemporary India with an outstanding British Asian cast, including Meera Syal and Paul Bhattacharjee. Iqbal Khan's confident, fluent direction makes for an intelligent,...

MOON ON A RAINBOW SHAWL Years ago, with suspiciously uncharacteristic spontaneity and extravagance, my husband suggested a holiday on the Caribbean island of Trinidad. The attraction was not sun, sea and steel bands, I soon discovered, but cricket: a...

ON STAGE The Wayward Daughter... Now an old master, Carlos Acosta dances with all the vitality of a young buck in this awe-inspiring revival LA FILLE MAL GARDEE What better way to celebrate this English spring than by indulging yourself in an evening...
Opera Review: Otello
I sometimes find myself counting the number of actors who appear on a stage at any one time. With the minimum Equity rates that are applicable, one seldom, if ever, sees more than half a dozen these days. As the economic climate worsens and the budgets...
The Duchess Of Malfi
Regular readers will know that Shakespeare’s outdoor Globe Theatre, lashed by the elements on London’s South Bank, is not my favourite venue. I love the building but not the backache the benches invariably prompt. I don’t mind the deafening helicopters...
