Musical Review

REVIEW: Tommy at the Greenwich Theatre

If you’re familiar with “Pinball Wizard,” then you probably already know the premise behind Tommy, the story of a “deaf, dumb and blind kid,” who discovers an extraordinary talent for playing pinball. Breaching the wall of possibility and earning a cult following in the process,...

Following a month of manifestos, campaigning and televised debates, culminating in a week of frantic electioneering, opinion polls, exit polls and an exhausting Thursday night watching each constituency declare, it has to be said that the prospect of a Friday evening spent in front of...

REVIEW: Thrill Me

For a teenager to read, and feel inspired by the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche is hardly an uncommon thing. And for the parents of such a teenager, whilst it might seem a curious interest, the overarching response would more than likely be pleased - impressed...

REVIEW: Apartment 40C at the St James Studio

Awarding a show the full five stars is a strange and wonderful thing. It’s normally done basking in the warm afterglow of an incredible show, something that’ll be spinning around your head for weeks to come, that’s made you feel so excited you need to...
