User review by Fishpie for Jesus Christ Superstar (New Victoria Theatre, Woking)
1st Apr 15: Saw performance today and was impressed by the whole performance. Very professional and gripping. Judas was played by the understudy and I tho he was superb
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 Brian Rodwell for One Night of Elvis (New Victoria Theatre, Woking)
29th Mar 15: Saw Lee at Beck Theatre great show best Elvis impersonator.
User review by Fan or was! for Dreamboats and Miniskirts
28th Mar 15: We went to,see the show on Rhyl last night - good show but singing from Laura (understudy) was piercing! Perhaps sound technician problem. The singing from Donna was also unclear.
User review by Jan evenden for And Then There Were None (Churchill Theatre, Bromley)
27th Mar 15: Thoroughly enjoyed this production, so nice to have all these talented actors in one great
User review by Leanne Turner for Bad Girls - The Musical (Hyde Festival Theatre, Hyde)
25th Mar 15: Went to see the show last night and it was brilliant, great adaptation of the TV show. Some amazing voices and characters. Just great!! Would DEFINATELY recommend.
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.
User review by Claire for Sister Act (Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield)
12th Mar 15: Unbelievably talented cast! I feel honoured to have been in the audience. West End quality.
User review by Ian Buckley for The Moment We Met (Barons Court Theatre, Inner London)
12th Mar 15: "Secrets, Secrets and more Secrets" 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
User review by G Taylor for The Woman in Black
12th Mar 15:

The Portsmouth venue is The Kings Theatre, not the New Theatre Royal RESPONSE: Thank you, we will update immediately:

User review by Carole for Edward Scissorhands (Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff)
11th Mar 15: Went to see Edward Scissorhands at Wales Millennium Centre on the opening night it was absolutely fantastic the best show I have seen and I'm sure I have seen 40+ shows in London and Cardiff, so if you get a chance go and see it you won't be disappointed.
User review by pauline batty for Sister Act (Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield)
11th Mar 15: Fantastic show enjoyed every moment
