Review: ANNIE GET YOUR GUN at The Union Theatre

Annie Get Your Gun - Union Theatre If like me you're a fan of good, old fashioned musicals and you're theatre-going on a budget then you've a treat in store at the Union Theatre this month.

They're currently presenting Irving Berlin's classic show Annie Get Your Gun in a perfect pocket sized production with a great cast and peppy little band that does full justice to the gold plated score. It includes You Can't Get A Man With A Gun, Anything You Can Do, Doin' What Comes Naturally and of course There's no Business Like Show Business.

Review: LOVE IN IDLENESS at The Apollo Theatre

Love in Idleness Watching Trevor Nunn's funny and fleet-of-foot production of Love in Idleness, a "new" play forged by combining two drafts of an old play written by Terrence Rattigan that's been barely performed, is like a blast from the past.

Until the emergence of angry, radical drama in the 1960s every theatre in the West End would offer variations on its formula - posh people chattering away in posh drawing rooms, with a quick dip into melodramatic peril before leisured wit and privileged are restored. The overarching philosophy of most of this repertoire is summed up when a character quips that there's nothing that can't be overcome with "small talk".
