Review: THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS A Preview Performance at The London Palladium

The Wind in the Willows The Wind in the Willows is given the big musical treatment by the team behind the re-working of Mary Poppins and most recently Half A Sixpence - lyricist Anthony Drewe, composer George Stiles and book writer Julian Fellowes. Going right back to their early days with Just So, through the Olivier-winning Honk! and last year’s Three Little Pigs, there’s something about anthropomorphic animal stories that get Stiles & Drewe’s creative juices flowing and in particular give Anthony Drewe’s rhyming muscles a work out. Full of terrific, freshly-minted lyrics that are a joy to hear (and that can’t always be said for every ear-splitting West End show) we get “foxes” rhymed with “equinoxes”, “prickles” and “vehicles” (as a family of hedgehogs nervously wait to cross a busy road) and more rhymes for Toad then have probably ever been counted.

Review: TRISTAN & YSEULT at Shakespeare’s Globe

Tristan and Yseult It’s been a bit of roller-coaster ride at the Globe Theatre this year.

First the newly appointed Artistic Director, Emma Rice, stepped down; which may or may not have been because venue bosses objected to her introduction of amplified sound and stage lighting to a theatre that had only ever used natural light and sound as in Shakespeare’s day.
