Review: YEAST NATION (THE TRIUMPH OF LIFE) at Southwark Playhouse

Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann (Tony-winning writers of the brilliant fringe favourite Urinetown) wrote this well-meaning prequel back in 2007 and then brazenly launched it upon the unsuspecting residents of Alaska! After multiple revisions and years of small-scale US productions, this evening’s opening at Southwark Playhouse marks the musical’s European premier.

Elf The Musical - New cast members announced

If you loved the movie, you’ll adore the musical. ELF is the hilariously charming story of Buddy, who accidentally crawls into Santa's gift bag as a baby. He’s taken to the North Pole and raised as an elf, with no idea he’s human. Realising he'll never belong with his fellow elves, he goes to New York to find his real dad, find himself, and help the city enjoy the true meaning of Christmas.

Review: FASHION FREAK SHOW at The Roundhouse

Freakishly-funky, frivolously-fripperous, fabulously-flamboyant, fragrant and fantastic — it’s everything a fun-loving fashionista could dream of.

The life of French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier (he of the horizontal striped naval costumes and extravagantly sexual perfume adverts) hit the Roundhouse on Tuesday evening after months of pre-publicity. So did the show live up to the hype?
