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. It is a battle between virtue and sin, faith and despair, and is a definitive insight into the darkness of the human ...

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 ...

Review of The First Hamlet at The Cockpit Theatre April 10, 2016 Hamlet
This is a rare and fascinating opportunity to see the first known text edition of the tragedy, the one published in 1603, a year before the more familiar, rather different and much expanded version of Hamlet, known as the Second Quarto. Debate rages over whether this First Quarto version of Hamlet, was an early draft written by Shakespeare or an unauthorised, pirated version noted down, ...

Review of Alistair McDowall’s X at The Royal Court Theatre April 5, 2016 X
On a small research base on Pluto a skeleton crew wait. They’ve lost contact with the outside world and now waiting is all they can do. But waiting in the presence of fear and the absence of hope isn’t easy. Part Sci-Fi part human unravelling, X subverts expectations and provokes its audience. This is a ferocious unapologetic play set in space from the ...

5-star Sunset Boulevard at The London Coliseum April 5, 2016 Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard
Sunset Boulevard, the film, conjures up a close­up of Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, silent ­film star, eyes frightened and demonic – fingers semi­curled like lobster claws. Norma was once the brightest supernova in Hollywood, circa 1920 – until the advent of talking pictures snuffed out her desirability and her career. It wasn’t just that she lost favour with Paramount Studio, it was Norma herself who ...
