Adam & Eve and Steve

If you’re looking for a wholesome chapter from The Good Book then this is not the show for you. If however you love an innuendo, a lot of queening around and borderline nudity then this just might be the ticket. While it might sometimes fire wide of the mark with some clunky contemporary references or push the ‘sex joke’ button a little too hard, this show is generally a well-executed take on a ‘Biblical’ concept bent completely out of shape. In the beginning, this saucy tale of sexual mischief

Thriller Live

Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough should be the new tagline for the musical which has just become the 15th longest running show in West End history. This production, which covers the musical career of Michael Jackson, doesn’t stoop to storytelling like many of its current ‘famous musicians’ musical’ contemporaries.

The Kite Runner

This adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s best-seller was written back in 2006, a year before the filmic representation.

Theatre Review: Little Shop of Horrors - New Wimbledon

The gloriously grotesque cult-musical opens at New Wimbledon Theatre, complete with the necessarily capitalised X-Factor contestant RHYDIAN starring as The Dentist. Despite the glitzy ‘big name’, this tour production still feels inspired by its B-movie origins. Calling it budget-Disney might sound harsh, but the cartoonish props, small cast and frantic storytelling all make it a vibrant, endearing performance from the book and lyricist duo Ashman and Menken that later created The Little Mermaid

Theatre Review: In or Out - Bridewell

A prescient play from Caroline Loncq about the European Referendum sees Tory rising star Annie and Labour hack Jim put their party differences aside in a private but passionate debate of the issues, both political and increasingly personal. The play runs until the 23rd June. A neat fact as it all but breaks the fourth wall as references to Saddiq Khan’s successful election, the Panama Papers and the pressing decision due on the day of the final performance combine to engage with great immediacy.
