5 Fiona Thirsk
17th Aug 17: I have just seen The Revlon Girl at Edinburgh festival. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The play was performed by 5 perfectly cast women, with minimal scenery and was very moving, very funny, and ultimately uplifting. Don't forget your tissues!
Blue Stockings
5 Steve Johanssen
16th Aug 17: Enjoyed watching this historical play with some great performances by some of Britain's up and coming talent !

The Revlon Girl (Park Theatre, Inner London)
5 Sian Van Den Bogerd
29th Jul 17: An absolutely amazing performance! We cried uncontrollable tears and then effortlessly laughed out loud! Such a fantastic, genius portrayal of a vitally essential part of Welsh history, or rather, everyone's history, as told by the actors who perfectly represented the voices of the brave, devastated and broken mums, voices that haven't been heard or represented - Bravo guys, a fantastic show! I didn't want it to end! A must-see performance!
Bicycles and Fish (The King's Head Theatre, Inner London)
5 Fatima Saraiva

Gypsy (New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich)
2 John
24th Jun 17: Clunky production. Very amateurish. Yes I know it's an amateur production but slick it ain't. Far too ambitious and far too long. It had it's moments but not enough to save it from being toe curling awful at times. Rose just couldn't belt out the hits although her acting was good.
Islands in the Stream (New Theatre, Oxford)
2 jo webb
23rd Jun 17: only ok. thought it would be better, lacked atmosphere. Thought people would be up dancing. Told could only dance in seat not in tne ailses.People didnt really get in into. Shame not fault of Kenny or Dolly just oxford new theatre. Thought it would be more fun.

5 Forbes Watson

Waiting for God
5 Hilarious!
4th Jun 17: The best laugh I've had for a while! A superb play headed by Nicola McAuliffe and Jeffrey Holland and a great supporting cast. Brilliant acting and a treat not to be missed! The timing was impeccable!
An Audience with Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe - Somewhere in Time
1 janet
31st May 17: A very disappointing show. Not enough dance routines. Too much singing, too much inane chatter about himself which was sickly. Even asked 2 members of the audience to take his shirt off on stage, and no you haven't a nice body Ian.I paid good money to watch this show but I will not recommend it to anyone. Love Brendan Cole, and Anton's show. You are not in their league.
Persuasion
5 Victoria
31st May 17: A great twist on a British classic. The actors were brilliant completely transfixing - I laughed and cried. Can seriously recommend this show.
