Review: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

A Midsummer Night's Dream - Open Air Theatre I love the open air theatre in Regent's Park, it is one of London's special places, even when it rains. To see a production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM on a balmy midsummer night, in a forest (well, the trees do cradle the stage) when so much of its action takes place in such a setting, is a real treat. When the production is also visually striking and the actors not only excellent Shakespearean performers but able to punch the humour to the front of their performance, well, you are really onto a winner.

Review: GEORGE at the Eventim Apollo

George - Eventim Apollo As it is billed as a celebration of the songs and music of George Michael, featuring Rob Lamberti singing "as" George, but most significantly, with original members of the George Michael Band, one immediately assumes this is a cut above the generic performance of this type.

What next for BOOMERANG? A new Play in Development

Boomerang - King's Head Theatre I have seen Boomerang as a scratch piece, then as a full length play, so finding out it will, as a further evolved version, be on at The King's Head Theatre in May, I was very pleased to have the opportunity to speak with the writer/directors of the female (female in all roles, an aspect that is very much part of its ethos) production company, Ivana Mazza-Coates and Madeleine Shenai.

Review: CLUB TROPICANA at The New Wimbledon Theatre

Club Tropicana Club Tropicana is an explosion of 80s camperie that does, superbly, exactly what it says on the tin. I have to admit that I was dancing in front of my seat by the end, and I am someone who curls her lip, and rolls her eyes, when invited to anything billed as "feel-good" or "uplifting."
