Meet Tommy Atkins (The Blakehay, Weston-Super-Mare)
1 Jim
20th Apr 17: To be honest this was more lecture than drama and consequently we never engaged with the central character. Could have been shorter and more pithy but in general needed fewer facts and more emotion ... shame, I have visited all the places mentioned within the last month and this play conveyed none of the feel of them, nor of the things that they represent.
Pluto (Barons Court Theatre, Inner London)

19th Apr 17: Very enjoyable play. Well worth a visit. Great to see new talent.
You Win Again - the Story of the Bee Gees
1 Mrs. C
18th Apr 17: I went to see this show on Easter Sunday with my husband and son at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. We all love the Bee Gees and they, in particular are very musical. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement. From the outset Martin Spooner was poor and dreadful at trying to get the audience to participate. Basically no charisma and he is no singer. The other two weren't much better with Yvan Silva's voice saving parts of the show. Putting 3 men in leather outfits and dark glasses does not a Bee Gee make. I would have to disagree with the reviewer before me who thought the narrator lent something to the show. We found his delivery weak and the script poor. The dancers tried hard but the whole production was unpolished, amateurish and over priced for what we got. It is rare that the Palace get it wrong but they did so this time. We left at the interval. Words..... we were lost for them.
The Little Mermaid (Royal Hippodrome Theatre, Eastbourne)
1 Gemma
13th Apr 17: My kids (3 & 6) loved the show. Luckily they are too young to understand the blatant and frequent sexual innuendo, and misogynistic 'jokes'. Not to mention a little casual racism thrown in for good measure. A shame because the cast were very talented, it was upbeat and should have been a fun pantomime.

11th Apr 17: saw this show at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. All I can say is wow!! the music, the dancers (all of them) the singers and band were all first class. I would highly recommend this show to anyone who has ever watched a musical.
Running Wild
5 Jean Palastanga
8th Apr 17: My 9 year old grandson wouldn't stop applauding at the end. He was totally overcome with emotion and just kept telling me and everyone else how totally amazing this play was. I absolutely agree with him and highly recommend it. Thank you.

Southern Baptist Sissies (Above the Stag Theatre, Inner London)
5 jim
22nd Mar 17: An amazing and moving experience - beautifully written, directed and acted throughout. A story of prejudice that speaks beyond its immediate "sissie" topic.

The Narnia Experience (St George's Hall, Liverpool)

21st Feb 17: Terrible. Amateurish
Eric Cantona (The Lowry, Salford)
1 Chandrika
21st Feb 17: I saw this show at BIC in Bournemouth. show was supposed to start at 7.30, comedian (if you can call him that came on at 8.00 for 15 mins, then proceeded to do an auction for next 15 mins. Then we had 30 minute break. Eric came on stage at 9.00. I love him but the interviewer was rubbish, seemed scared of him, didn't seem prepared. Eric was on stage for 45 mins, 20 mins max on football rest on films, life etc. Questions from audience for 10 mins which included "I love you Eric" "Say the seagulls quote in French cos I love your accent" "Loved your goal against Liverpool". Not at all professional He is the King and needs better servants to present him!!!
The MGM Story: The Magic of the Musical
5 Ruth Myerscough-jackopson
19th Feb 17: This was magical. I grew up watching MGM musicals and this brought so many of the best bits to life. The cast were magnificent, I would love to see them do the whole of singing in the rain together, such energy, stunning voices and perfect dramatic mood changes for all of the different songs. A perfect night out for any lover of old time musicals.
