‘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! With ‘Mythic’, it’s gone and got it’s mojo back – simply lit and set, with tight direction and the least lazy or pretentious choreography you’ll see anywhere in the West End. Go […]

The Lighterman – review

The Lighterman – review

By Sophie Parkinson & Hannah Phillips Having completely shed the red-light-district vibe and fast establishing itself as London’s go-to foodie haven, Granary Square welcomed another new resident in the form of ‘pub, dining room and bar’, The Lighterman. (nb – for those who are unfamiliar, the King’s Cross restaurant hub is just a short walk north […]

‘Cathy’ Review – Soho Theatre

So here’s something we recommend – not because of the strident ‘life’s tough if you’re homeless’ message, not because of the irony that there are apparently more people employed in homeless charities than there are homeless – or that the money London homeless charities receive each year would easily pay to accommodate all the London […]

‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ Review – Jermyn Street Theatre

‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ Review – Jermyn Street Theatre

The Hound of the Baskervilles – another hit for the Jermyn Street Theatre but this time, with a big smile on it’s face! Ibsen may be fun for you more erudite theatre goers and no doubt ‘Blinding Light‘ and ‘Miss Julie‘ deserved their rave reviews and liberally scattered star ratings but you know what – […]

‘Dear Brutus’ Review – Southwark Playhouse

‘Dear Brutus’ Review – Southwark Playhouse

So here’s the thing. Some old guy invites you and your relevant other down to his place for a week of midsummer frolics. And you go – even though you don’t know who he is. Unbeknown to you, and on demand, he can summon a magic wood (think M Night Shyamalan’s Covington wood but rather […]

‘The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)’ – Review

‘The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)’ – Review

Hannah and Her Sisters meets Master Of None in Noah Baumbach’s exceptional family comedy-drama, starring an ensemble including Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, Elizabeth Marvel and Emma Thompson. They say friends are like family, except you get to choose. It’s pretty obvious Mayarowitzes Harold and Danny and Matthew and Jean wouldn’t ever select each […]

Alligators

Alligators

Funny how fake news seems to dictate the agenda. We don’t care if what we read is true. All we want is to be entertained and engaged sympathetically to our prejudices and proclivities. If what you tell us is true – fine. If it’s not, who cares. ‘Child slaves forced to make cheap clothes on […]

Drake And The Lights – The Boy Meets World Tour Review

Drake And The Lights – The Boy Meets World Tour Review

The thought of paying £99 a ticket (+ service fees) for a concert at The O2 shocks most and I’ll admit when I saw the price I was a little taken aback myself. But having been almost three years since Drake’s last European tour I knew my money already belonged to him. Throughout the summer, […]

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 […]

Nice Fish – groping for trout in a peculiar river.

Nice Fish – groping for trout in a peculiar river.

What is with the bloody honours system atm eh? There I am watching a bit of news so I can pretend I’m a bit grown up and give a damn – and in a dimpsy light up pops this fellow, pale as if fluorescent is as near to sunlight as he’s ever got, and he […]
