17th Oct 20 :: Review: Two Singular Sensations
What a fabulous show. Such a talented duo. It was an absolute delight to see a live show in these troubled times. All our favourite musical extracts and few not so familiar ones. Great entertainment at Haslemere Hall this afternoon and still time to catch this evenings performance if you're quick. Well done!
16th Oct 20 :: Review: Dante's in Furlough (The Vaults, Inner London)
Amazing performance! The story is great, the actors are so enthusiastic, funny and devilishly wicked. Everything was thought out to the finest detail and I loved every moment. I couldn't get enough ????
18th Sep 20 :: Review: Luther - Luther Vandross Celebration (Richmond Theatre, Outer London)
Fantastic show in Blackpool going to Glasgow show in 2021 can't wait.
16th Jul 20 :: Review: The Woman in Black (Fortune Theatre, West End)

23rd Apr 20 :: Review: Illegal Eagles
Brilliant but are they playing Liverpool Empire this year 25/05/2020. Asking but no response - ED: Very,unlikely, I would say "no" but we haven't received confirmation.
15th Mar 20 :: Review: Menopause the Musical 2 - Cruising Through Menopause
Loved, laughed and cried! Recommended ~ loved the first and the second was even more fab - 2 of original cast this time and ... well... nothing will stop me from seeing (hopefully) #3
15th Mar 20 :: Review: SIX
What a fabulous performance. A truly fantastic musical, fun and full of pizzazz. If you want to experience a full on modern, original yet historic musical, this is the one!!!!
12th Mar 20 :: Review: Pride and Prejudice (Sort Of)
Absolutely brilliant! A fantastic romp, fast and furious, with all the wit of the original. The cast covered all the characters with panache. I laughed and laughed! I can't praise it highly enough.
11th Mar 20 :: Review: Dial M for Murder (Playhouse, Salisbury)
Oh dear have I missed something! Acting far too over the top with dramatic gestures very distracting. Film cannot be bettered . This is now creaky and showing its age. Some dialogue very indistinct.
7th Mar 20 :: Review: Jane Eyre (Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne)
Unfortunately the sound was not good and I struggled to hear the performance. A lot of the time the actors had their back to the audience! I am not taking away the fact that the actors all worked very hard but alas I am disappointed.
7th Mar 20 :: Review: Jane Eyre (Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne)
This performance was outstanding, the way it was portrayed on stage very clever and it was the superb acting from cast that made it a joy to watch . Myself and three friends came away from the Theatre with nothing but praise of the performance we had seen , again a joy to watch , well done to all .
7th Mar 20 :: Review: Macbeth (Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, West End)
Terrible- supposedly child friendly but a weird mix up of street cultural references with Shakespearean script- confusing and frankly dislikeable. A fantastic way to put a child off Shakespeare. More interesting for th actor / director than the audience. Perhaps it might be fair to consider Shakespeare knew more about entertaining than the contemporary theatrical teams who feel they have to ‘ mix it up’ to make it relevant to a young person. In the words of my son- ( tearfully) it was terrible...
