War Horse
5 Terence Doyle
15th Aug 18: I was expecting War Horse to be good and fortunately my expectations were more than satisfied. A magnificent spectacle!
Aspects of Love (Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester)
5 Sue jones
29th Jul 18: Absolutely amazing production, perfectly cast and fantastic performers. I have seen this show more than a dozen times and never enjoyed it more. Such a shame that it isn’t either staying for longer or transferring to another theatre.
Aspects of Love (Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester)
5 Stanley Whittaker
22nd Jul 18: This brilliant production should be kept here for much longer. How about a transfer if Hope Mill is not available for a longer run ? The Lowry ?
One Last Look (General, Outer London)
4 ivy
20th Jul 18: I saw this behind a pub in St Leonards, and I'd definitely recommend it. It's compelling, thought-provoking, interesting in structure and funny. The two actors are amazing and work really well together. Not to be missed, I'd say!
A Monster Calls (Old Vic Theatre, West End)

13th Jul 18: Saw this in Bristol - a stunning piece of theatre
5 John W Barnes
4th Jul 18: Well produced with excellent actors. Very moving and thought provoking.
Romeo and Juliet (Waterloo East Theatre, Inner London)
5 Joana Haller
3rd Jul 18: I watched this show last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Love the female leads in the title roles, the energy of the cast and clarity of the lines. Brilliant all round
Abba Mania
5 Sophie
1st Jul 18: Big love for Bjorn, absolutely cracking
Miss Littlewood (Swan Theatre, Stratford-Upon-Avon)
3 Pete
29th Jun 18: Many good individual performances but the play didn’t come alive for me. It felt like a “luvvie fest” with too many PC and left wing cliches combined with typical RSC approach to casting. I left without really knowing anything of any depth about Mrs Littlewood. However I was probably in a minority as many in the audience appeared to be in raptures!!!
The Last Ship (Theatre Royal, Glasgow)
5 Alexander Allan
22nd Jun 18: Pure Dead Brillant! A great tribute to shipbuilding.
Singin' in the Rain (McMillan Theatre, Bridgwater)
1 ttgirl1962

Once a Year on Blackpool Sands
5 Kym
21st Jun 18: If I could give more than 5 I would. I saw this play on the Tuesday and went back last night. Emotional and funny and absolutely fantastic acting.
Once a Year on Blackpool Sands (General, Liverpool)
5 Gill Dwyer
21st Jun 18: Brilliant show! Excellent story and actors are fantastic. Definitely worth going to see.
A Monster Calls (Bristol Old Vic, Bristol)
5 jim
8th Jun 18: An absolutely amazing production, moving, imaginative and completely compelling ...
5 James Henderson
16th May 18: I saw this production in 2016 and it was beautiful. Full of laughter and lots of love. The acting was brilliant from everyone and the puppetry was (as usual from Kneehigh) top notch! Go and see the play, you won't be disappointed!

13th May 18: Oh dear, MONOTONY would be a more appropriate title. I know the play is in early stage of production but it is slow and dis-jointed. Seems that a variety of current issues ranging from Syria to mental illness have been haphazardly put together with an element of farce. Easily the worst play we have seen in a very long time.
The Fantastic Follies of Mrs Rich
5 Ruth
13th May 18: Amazing fun, cast, diction,and singing. Aust if you are feeling low! Hope it tours as would love to see it again and take family.
Ian Waite and Oti Mabuse - Rhythm of the Night
5 The Pilots wife
4th May 18: We saw Rhythm of the Night on The South Island 2nd May. A secret to me that Ian Waite is a natural comedic entertainer and presenter. Dancing a total given with the beautiful and multi talented Oti Mabuse. The supporting players, Mauris Mabuse and the young singer Lizzi did their job splendidly with Lizzi coming into her role as Ian's stooge in the Barry Manilow number. Again Ian not a singer but he belted out the song and held the notes with a lovely touch of campness.Laughed till the mascara ran darling. We had a fantastic evening so catch this show if you can. BBC don't let Ian Waite out of your sights, he should be presenting SCD at some point.
Ian Waite and Oti Mabuse - Rhythm of the Night
5 Maureen Stewart
2nd May 18: Absolutely fantastic. I went to see Ian & Otti at Shanklin Theatre on the Isle of Wight with my daughter NIkki. I am a massive Strictly fan. I have seen many of the other dancers from Strictly - all brilliant - this show though was so much more than dancing. What an amazing personality Ian has - he should be looking at presenting. And Otti lovely to hear more about her & see her husband. Lizzy (the singer) was very good as well. I would thoroughly recommend going to this show. I will certainly be looking out for more shows from Ian & Otti. Thank you SO much
You Win Again - the Story of the Bee Gees
5 Paul Markham
22nd Apr 18: Four of us went to Cambridge April 21 and all thought it was good entertainment. In fact very slick with plenty of audience participation . We have seen all the major Rock acts throughout the years and still enjoyed this show. Also the dancers and girl singer all added to it.
