Abba Mania 5Sophie 1st Jul 18: Big love for Bjorn, absolutely cracking
Miss Littlewood (Swan Theatre, Stratford-Upon-Avon) 3Pete 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!!!

Once a Year on Blackpool Sands 5Kym 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.
Fup 5James 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!
Monogamy 1Guildford 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 5Ruth 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 5The 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 5Maureen 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 5Paul 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.
This generation's "Blood Brothers"? A genuinely good evening
Blood Brothers 5Angela hancock 12th Apr 18: The best show Ive seen, moved me to tears ,the performance of every cast member was superb .the whole performance was so well acted and realistic.i would recommend it highly .
This is Elvis (New Theatre, Cardiff) 5margaret barnett 12th Apr 18: saw this show 11/04/18 with my niece. We were both blown away by the show. Fantastic,a real feel good factor. Steve Michaels was wonderful, having you believe it really was Elvis.Not just Steve but the whole of the cast was incredibly talented. Even in the best shows there is usually something that could be done better. Not this one the feel good factor is wonderful. I am stiil buzzing. Go, you will be glad you did.
