Review: THE KITE RUNNER, Wyndhams Theatre

The Kite Runner Based on the best-selling novel by Khaled Hasseini, this Nottingham Playhouse production of The Kite Runner comes 13 years after the original book and 9 years after the film-adaptation — both of which were huge successes in their own right. Hasseini’s extraordinary, darkly beautiful, shocking story is one that should be enjoyed with as little pre-tense as possible so it’s important to speak sparingly about the plot.

Review: LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST at the Haymarket Theatre

Love's Labour's Lost - RSC Many years ago early encounters with this Shakespeare play induced such brain aching boredom that I swore to never to put myself through the ordeal of seeing it again. Standing in to review it at the last moment for an indisposed Thomas Michael Voss I'm amazed and delighted to be able to report that director Christopher Luscombe and the Royal Shakespeare Company actors at the Haymarket Theatre have made it a lot of fun.

Review: DREAMGIRLS at The Savoy Theatre

dreamgirls-production-shot.jpg DREAMGIRLS, charting the rise to success of a 1960's Supremes-style girl group 'The Dreams', crackles along at a lively pace with plenty of soul, sass and colour.

Review: HEDDA GABLER at The National Theatre

hedda-gabler-nt.jpg Henrik Ibsen’s HEDDA GABLER is one of those “sacred pieces” that not many directors dare to reimagine. The Belgian visionary Ivo van Hove who took UK’s theatre scene by storm in 2014 with his bold take on Arthur Miller’s classic A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE is one of them. The pioneer of a method in which he challenges the parameters of the classics, now van Hove takes on to the National Theatre’s stage with Patrick Marber’s adaptation of HEDDA GABLER. Together with a great ensemble, led by the phenomenal Ruth Wilson, van Hove creates a trailblazing production, in which despite themodernisation, Ibsen’s heroine appears more visceral than ever.

Review: LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST and MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING at Theatre Royal Haymarket

Love's Labour's Lost / Much Ado About Nothing RSC’s festive offering, the double bill of LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST and MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is a wonderfully light treat for those who are after some comedy this winter. There are great performances throughout and Simon Highlett’s set does wonders but Christopher Luscombe’s production feels too old fashioned and not inventive enough to be a memorable one.
