User review by Chris Trevor-Wilson for Jesus Christ Superstar 1st Apr 15: Chris (March 31) I saw Jesus Christ Superstar last night in Woking and was disappointed with the varying standard of singing and clarity. Mary Magdalene was superb, as was Caiphus but Judas Iscariot shouting his was way through the performance and Jesus overacted to the point of comedy. Isaw this show three times in London in the late 1970s and it was superb...this was not. Disjointed, jerky and ended too abruptly.
User review by Geoff Boddy for Beautiful Thing (Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury) 24th Mar 15: Wonderful. Charlie Brooks is as camp as Xmas and you dont even think of Janene unlike other soap stars she is a true actress. Good to see 6th formers in the audience as this play will help a lot of young people strugling with their sexuality. I,m 68 and was lucky enough to have a Mum like Sandra
User review by Mary for Jesus Christ Superstar 21st Mar 15: I saw the production at the Derngate and was disappointed that neither Rhydian or Rachael were in the cast as advertised. I thought it was an average performance and nothing to rave about. I think they should let people know if there are dates when key players are not performing. I really wanted to see Rhydian I think he is amazing.
User review by Elizabeth for Jesus Christ Superstar 17th Mar 15: I watched Jesus Christ Superstar on 14 March but was a little disappointed.
There was a dark broodiness about it and very little emphasis on the resurrrection. Mary Magdelene was superb and the musicians were also very good.

by Penny Culliford for remotegoat on 11/03/15
The Moment We Met, inspired by true events and written and directed by Ian Buckley is a play with secrets. So much so, that it is difficult to review the play without revealing the plot, and thereby the secrets, and ruining it for future audiences. The secrets are deep and dark, and are revealed piece-by-painful-piece throughout this cracking slow-burner of a play. And there is a relationship. It’s not giving away too much to say there is a relationship -between two people who made a connection from the very moment they met.
The two-hander cuts expertly between soliloquy, revealing the inner monologues of Liz, a 40-something school secretary, and Alan, a hunky fireman, and real-time action. A danger, which Buckley largely avoids, is slowing down the pace, and instead the technique allows the audience to see what happens but also hear each character’s thoughts about it. This allows an intimate portrayal of the relatio
