London Theatre Reviews

Musical Reviews...

Billy Elliot
The greatest British musical I have ever seen (Telegraph); Enjoyable (Independent) more...


The Bodyguard
Slick in terms of design & functionality. Singing & songs are great. (Londontheatre.co.uk); Far more enjoyable than the movie (Telegraph) more...

The Book of Mormon
Cleverly written...enormously enjoyable.(Londontheatre.co.uk); Decadent and self-indulgent musical (Telegraph); mildly amusing (Guardian); Loved it (Independent) more...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Hugely inventive production almost overwhelming in its sheer scale and complexity, but magical nonetheless (Londontheatre.co.uk). more...

The Commitments
Scrappy, sometimes hazily sketched proceedings...I just wish there was a bit more content and originality. (Londontheatre.co.uk). more...

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Does at times definitely go too far, beyond healthy vulgarity and into uncomfortable offence.(Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

I Can't Sing! (X factor Musical)
Sean Foley's production is both busy and buzzy, neatly propelled by Kate Prince's frequently exhilarating choreography. (Londontheatre.co.uk). more...

Jersey Boys
This piece remains very much a jukebox musical (Stage); Slickly animated production (Evening Standard) more...

Les Miserables
The whole production is a wonderful piece of musical theatre (Gary Mack) more...

The Lion King
This is a dazzling show with the heart of a lion (Telegraph); A beautiful dazzle of invention and imagination (Evening Standard) more...

Mamma Mia!
Don't go to the show expecting any gripping story line, just go with the mind of enjoying the songs, reminiscing and having a lot of fun. (londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Matilda The Musical
The best new British musical since Billy Elliot.(Telegraph); Cracking Christmas fun. (Londontheatre.co.uk). more...

Once
Special and so enjoyable...music that is extraordinarily distinctive, powerfully emotional and hugely affecting in a word... stunning. (Londontheatre.co.uk). more...

Phantom of the Opera
Continues to wow audiences and cast its magical spell. (Gary Mack) more...

Thriller Live
A great night out (Daily Telegraph); Immensely enjoyable (Independent) more...

Urinetown
Director Jamie Lloyd brings a punchy and visceral attack to every moment of this show (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

We Will Rock You
A super high energy show (londontheatre.co.uk); A trite and tacky storyline (Independent) more...

Wicked
Witty, enjoyable (Telegraph); I enjoyed very little (Independent) more...

Drama Reviews...

Another Country
... And we laugh. But there's a deadly seriousness in this play, and it is beautifully served.(Londontheatre.co.uk) more...


Birdland
This is a chilling portrait of narcissism run riot and a cautionary tale for our fame-obsessed age. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Fatal Attraction
... I might be tempted to dismiss as cheap, opportunistic commercial tat if it wasn't all so palpably expensively produced. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Ghost Stories
its three stories of ghostly visitations are given an atmospheric intensity in the sparse, smart changing perspectives of Jon Bausor's designs... (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

King Charles III
It is equally full of wit and character, with a personal tragedy at its centre. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

King Lear
Simon Russell Beale has the instinctive musicality of a true Shakespearean actor to transform the speeches into arias of pain and feeling. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Let the Right One In
...this is a production that fires on all cylinders simultaneously. (londontheatre.co.uk) more...

The Mousetrap
The story, whilst sensational and full of silly coincidences, is actually quite good. (londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Other Desert Cities
This is a fierce, wounding and wonderful night's theatre.(londontheatre.co.uk) more...

A Small Family Business
it is beautifully acted here by a top-notch company led by Nigel Lindsay...(Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

A Taste of Honey
The play speaks for itself with a gritty, gruelling intensity (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Twelve Angry Men
... has a gripping theatrical conviction ... a noble, dignified addition to the West End roster. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

A View From The Bridge
it emerges as the most stunning production I've ever seen of this fabled play that seems to reinvent it from the inside out. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

War Horse
Genius isn't too strong a word to describe this astonishing production (Daily Telegraph); Be sure not to miss this stunning show (The Times) more...

The Woman in Black
A brilliant thriller that is a must see! (londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Comedy Reviews...

Blithe Spirit
... both star and the play are ideally matched to sparklingly show each other off. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...


Jeeves and Wooster Perfect Nonsense
Packed with Wodehouse's trademark verbal polish and punch. But it simply doesn't deliver the killer blow for me. (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Relative Values
...quite possibly the most painful and pointless revival in London (Londontheatre.co.uk) more...

Two Into One
Will you find it utterly hilarious or just plain daft? I only hope its the former, but I wouldn't like to put money on it(Londontheatre.co.uk) more...
