‘The Recruiting Officer’ Old Red Lion – Review

‘The Recruiting Officer’ Old Red Lion – Review

By Chris Parkinson. Whoopee – the pantomime season has started! Oh yes it has, up at the Old Red Lion Theatre. They’ve got a production of Farquhar’s ‘The Recruiting Officer’ and it’s brill. A host of clever young things bring these old time words to life – rather better than I’ve seen done at the […]

‘Mythic’ Charing Cross Theatre – Review

By Chris Parkinson If you’re one of those people for whom the Charing Cross Theatre had lost it’s allure over recent times, rejoice!

Madame Butterfly – Kings Head Theatre

Madame Butterfly – Kings Head Theatre

You know, this is really rather good. If you’re hoping to match the visuals of the recent ENO production, forget it. The show is in a pub, for Goodness sake. But if you’re willing to see your opera re-imagined, and sung to you in close proximity by talented singers, you’ll probably love it. However, if […]
