Dickens Unplugged, Comedy Theatre, London

In this show's defence, I must say that my two young teenage guests enjoyed it greatly. And it might go down well with the younger end of a secondary school audience. In spirit it is rather like a superior end-of-term show - but not superior enough to warrant two hours in the West End for most of ...

The Children's Hour - review

There's only one question to which everyone wants the answer: can Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss cut the mustard? The short answer is that they prove as potent a combination on stage as at the box office. But, for all the excellence of their performances, and Ian Rickson's ministrations as ...

La Bête

I'll say this much: David Hirson's piece of Broadway-originating, pastiche Molière seems less smugly self-admiring than it did on its first appearance in 1992.

The Misanthrope

Can Keira Knightley cut it? That is the first question prompted by this revival of Martin Crimp's updated version of Molière's play. Since she's playing a movie star in her 20s, one could say that she is not unduly stretched. But Knightley brings to the role fine, sculpted features, palpable ...

Prick Up Your Ears

This title has seen a lot of service. It was first used by John Lahr for his biography of Joe Orton, and then adopted by Alan Bennett for a movie. Now it is dredged up yet again for a Simon Bent play which tells the familiar story of how Orton came to be murdered by his partner, Kenneth Halliwell in ...

One of the greatest things about London is the mass creativity and talent on show.  I am still completely in awe at the pleasure of what a £12  to £30 ticket to a performance can bring; real, live talent from teen dance troupes to wickedly, wonderful stage craft with 1, 2, maybe 5 actors ...
