REVIEW: Carrie The Musical at the Southwark Playhouse

The world isn’t a friendly place for Carrie White. Agonisingly shy, she’s made it all the way to her final year of high school without ever having made a friend, face to the floor as “weirdo” catcalls ring out in the corridors. They laugh at...

REVIEW: Vote For Me at the London Theatre Workshop

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: Into the Woods at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre

Into the Woods at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre is the most wonderful demonstration that a show doesn't have to have a big budget to have a big impact. Hidden away above a pub in north east London, is a production that's as funny...

REVIEW: Love Story at The Union Theatre

The second of three musicals in the Union Theatre's Howard Goodall Season, Love Story brings us a beautiful tale of love and loss. When a preppy Harvard student meets a perspicacious working class bookshop assistant, the last thing either of them expects is to fall...

REVIEW: Sweeney Todd at the Twickenham Theatre

Victorian London. Poverty runs riot through filthy streets, dodging the horse-drawn carts as they thunder past, and wheezing through air thick with smoke. It’s an unforgiving environment for the penniless, so when Benjamin Barker returns in search of his wife and daughter, he’s forced back...

REVIEW: Grim at the Charing Cross Theatre

Boy meets girl. They fall in love. People around them start dying. It’s not your average romantic comedy premise, but then, your average romantic comedy’s, “boy,” probably isn’t Cupid. And your average romantic comedy’s, “girl,” probably isn’t the Grim Reaper. So here’s a rephrase. The...

REVIEW: Dogfight at the Southwark Playhouse

It is 1963, and the, “three B’s” are embarking on a final night of debauchery before their deployment to Vietnam. Preparing for a brutally boozy affair, respect goes out the window as they proclaim themselves kings for an evening, going for broke in their hunt...

REVIEW: Let It Be

More a brilliantly polished, professional Beatles tribute concert than a piece of West End theatre, Let It Be charts the chronology of the Fab Four from their early days performing in The Cavern Club, through Sgt Pepper, on their Magical Mystery Tour, and all the...

Zanna Don’t! at the Landor Theatre

With the subtlety of a sledgehammer and more glitter than a Christmas grotto, Zanna Don’t is a flamboyant festival of everything camp, sparkly and fabulous. Currently playing at the Landor Theatre in Clapham, the show transports us into an alternate reality where heterosexuality is taboo,...

In The Heights – Southwark Playhouse – 26/05/2014

Sam Mackay as Usnavi Emma Kingston as Vanessa Christina Modestou as Nina Wayne Robinson as Benny Damian Buhagiar as Sonny Eve Polycarpou as Abuela Claudia Jonny Labey as Graffiti Pete Sarah Naudi as Carla Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Daniela Josie Benson as Camila David Bedella as...
