Review: OSLO at the Mitzi Newhouse Theater (Lincoln Centre), Broadway

Oslo When comparing London and New York theatre most critics agree that exciting new drama tends to be developed in London while New York is the town for innovation in musical theatre. It is therefore with huge excitement that I report that OSLO, at Lincoln Centre’s intimate Mitzi Newhouse space, is one of the finest new plays I have seen in years.

The piece is a homage to and love song for musical theatre, an art form it relentlessly and lovingly pastiches throughout.

Finding Neverland

Finding Neverland Lots of Gary Barlow's score for this musical about how J.M Barrie came to write PETER PAN sounds like vintage Take That. I mean a lot. Not necessarily a bad thing, personally I like a bit of late 90s boy band but it's quite disconcerting when the pop, drum beats suddenly kick in amidst the Edwardian frocks.

It’s impossible to believe Matthew Morrison’s (Mr Shue from TV’s Glee) has the mischievous mercurial mind and energy of Barrie, the role played by Johnnie Depp in the film version of the same name but he's a great singer and as handsome as you’d expect.
