UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

5 Julie Cawood
15th Mar 20: 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!!!!
Menopause the Musical 2 - Cruising Through Menopause
5 Amanda yates
15th Mar 20: 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
Pride and Prejudice (Sort Of)
5 Karen R
12th Mar 20: 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.
Dial M for Murder (Playhouse, Salisbury)
2 Liz
11th Mar 20: 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.
Jane Eyre (Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne)
5 Ken Root
7th Mar 20: 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 .
Macbeth (Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, West End)
1 Pal
7th Mar 20: 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...
Jane Eyre (Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne)
2 Veronica Higgins
7th Mar 20: 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.
Menopause the Musical 2 - Cruising Through Menopause
5 Sue
4th Mar 20: Absolutely brilliant laughed non stop and ended with a standing ovation brilliant performances especially Cheryl well done ladues
The MP, Aunty Mandy and Me
4 Debbie
4th Mar 20: Four and a half stars. Great acting. About 10 minutes too long. Moving, funny. Would like to see more of this actor, writer and company.
Trainers or, the Brutal Unpleasant Atmosphere of this Most Disagreeable Season: a Theatrical Essay (The Gate Theatre, Inner London)
5 dianna marder
4th Mar 20: brilliant little book contains the entire script of this smart, funny play. makes you think.
Menopause the Musical 2 - Cruising Through Menopause
5 Tina Millward Jones
2nd Mar 20: Absolutely hilarious brilliant performances by everyone a real heart lifting experience
Lady Chatterley's Lover
5 Rob
2nd Mar 20: I saw this at Malvern on Sat (29/2) with a small, but appreciative audience. A shame, because it deserved better. Of the several versions of LCL I’ve seen, I thought this was one of the most original, with the ghostly narrations particularly clever. While each and every one of the cast were excellent, the young woman who played the roles of a deceased nurse, Lady Chatterley’s sister and Mrs Betts deserves special mention for the incredibly different and effortless way she switched from one role to the next – a truly brilliant night, thank you.
The Magic of Motown - Reach Out
5 Julie Kirby
29th Feb 20: Seen this twice absolutely brilliant
Oor Wullie (MacRobert Arts Centre, Stirling)
1 Lyn Stevenson
29th Feb 20: Sorry Awful show We left at the interval Bad story line not great singing cannot recommend any part of it
Curtains
5 Sue Dartnell
26th Feb 20: Most enjoyable show. Catchy songs, great choreography and funny. Will go to see it again.
Once (Belgrade Theatre, Coventry)
3 Grace skilling
22nd Feb 20: I've had good reports
Menopause the Musical 2 - Cruising Through Menopause
5 Beccy
21st Feb 20: Brilliant! Cried laughing many times. Amazing ladies and show
Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense (Garrick Playhouse, Altrincham)
5 Penny McDonald
17th Feb 20: Rollicking comedy by brilliant actors. Could not stop laughing at the quick-fire character changes, accents and the dratted dog! Go see it and come our smiling
