Mad Bad and Dangerous to Know: The Scandalous and Fast Times of Lord Byron May 25, 2016 Mad Bad and Dangerous to Know: The Scandalous and Fast Times of Lord Byron
So you think you know the real story of Lord Byron? Well… you probably do. There are not many revelations in Paul Huntley-Thomas’ one hander, but then, Byron’s most scandalous secrets are public knowledge already: keeping a bear at Cambridge; his relationship with his half-sister; his passion for young boys – all these and more are in the history books. Neither could Huntley-Thomas reasonably ...

A Working Title at the Union Theatre – Review May 18, 2016 A Working Title
Stereotypes can make us cringe. We can watch an actor adopting the clichéd idiosyncrasies of a "type" and then quiver and wince at the embarrassment of them trying to make it look natural (or not as the case may be). However, there are times when caricatures can be used effectively, not so much for comical effect but rather to emphasise ...

Review of Doctor Faustus at the Duke of York’s Theatre April 28, 2016 Doctor Faustus
Marlowe’s Dr Faustus is a legendary tale of the price of greed and ambition, as the title character makes a pact with the devil for 24 years of unlimited power and glory in exchange for the damnation of his immortal soul.

Review of My Mother Said I Never Should at St James Theatre April 20, 2016 My Mother Said I Never Should
“My Mother Said I Never Should” was first performed nearly thirty years ago so the retrospective is not just within the play itself (as far back as 1905) but to 1987 when the author, Charlotte Keatley, created this masterful look at motherhood. The play is about other things than being a mother – the role of women in society and the changes in that ...

Review of In The Heights at King’s Cross Theatre April 13, 2016 In The Heights
So we have a small, independent cab company, a small independent hair salon, a very small, very independent bodega; we have street vendors and (mobile) front stoops and fire hydrants and the A train subway station and coffee and piraguas (shaved-ice coolers) and extreme heat with Con Edison gone walkabout and an insular, family-first, Dominican-American society plus, of course, an ...
