    Theatre Reviews

    Some of us from time to time enjoy the theatre .
    Musicals dramas comedies whatever is your nag please write a review here and let us know.
    Wicked
    Fabulous musical surrounding the flipside tale of the wicked witch from Wizard of Oz.
    Brilliant show quite sad also but fantastic songs and great entertainment and effects.
    Ive now seen this twice and I love it, once in NYC and last Saturday at the Apollo in London.
    The English girl Kerry Ellis who plays Elphaba was brilliant and certainly compared with the Tony award winning Idina Menzell whom we saw in New York.
    A great show suitable for all the family.


    YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN


    Saw this on New Years Eve lat year in NYC and it is superb so so funny and such a big show.

    Its very faithful to Mel Brooks movie (incl the hilarious blind hermit scene)

    Megan Mulcahy (Carol from Will and Grace) played Elixabeth

    Roger Bart was Frankenstein (Doctor)

    Shuler Hensley was the monster.

    Brilliant routines and just hilarious .

    Witches of Eastwick the Musical

    Saw this last night at Edinburgh Playhouse and loved it .

    Marti Pellow was the lead playing Darryl Van Horne aka the Devil and its a role that really suited him to a T.

    This was such fun and the leading ladies were also excellent , one bearing an uncanny resemblance to Amelia Jane Rutherford the spanking model and I wondered if she has a dual role????????

    This is a touring production and Id suggest you should check it out its such a blast.

    Don Jon

    I recently saw the Kneehigh theatre production of 'Don Jon' at the RSC.
    http://www.rsc.org.uk/whatson/6435.aspx
    and would really recommend it.

    It is imaginatively staged and very entertaining.... though some might think it a bit superficial at times.

    It finishes shortly in Stratford and the goes on tour around the country.

    Oooo I am going to see Witches of Eastwick in Aberdeen soon, can't wait!
    Used to go to the theatre regularly in London, before moving to the wilderness.


    Phantom of The Opera is a firm favourite
    A dark musical. A story of love and betrayal, choosing between the safe and the more dangerous (I would SOOO choose the phantom lol) the music is simply stunning. Some excellent special effects but the theatre is small and some seats have restricted view, which I find weird!


    Starlight Express
    A musical on roller skates. Good fun and light hearted. The action takes place all around the theatre, not just on a stage in front of you. One for the whole family.


    We Will Rock You
    Written by Ben Elton, a must for any Queen fans. A modern take on the traditional Queen songs. Fabulous night out and I really want to see this again.


    Hmmm that's my contribution for now.

    edit, what does this forum have against my paragraphs!!!! It always removes them!

    Blood Brothers

    I went to see this on Tuesday and it was one of the best shows I have seen.

    I didnt really know the story beforehand, but really enjoyed it.

    Would recommend it to anyone.

    Agree that Kerry Ellis is a star 7nil. I seem to remember that, a few years ago, my daughter sang with her and Earl Carpenter (ex-phantom in the West End) at the Lime House in Poole and had a fabulous time !

    ************
    My greatest musical theatre 'love' has to be Les Miserables..........wonderful story, beautiful melodies, rousing anthems, amazing Baricade set and the staging and direction is brilliant. I last saw it about 3 years ago and it was every bit as fab as it had been over 20 years before when I saw it a few days after it opened at The Barbican.

    ps. I think I saw both the matinee and evening performance every saturday for about 40 weeks - which is approximately the length of time I was dating a guy from the original cast

    I loved Billy Elliott, but I could understand the accent.

    When I went there were loads sitting round saying what did they say - we found that quite funny, but the play was brilliant.

    Agree with you with We Will Rock You - went to London to see it a few years ago and it is touring this year so going to see it at Sunderland - brilliant, but I love Queen.

    I suppose I enjoyed Joseph, but couldnt go to see it again - that was my disappointing one.

    Mariaj and Ellie...........agree with you both about We Will Rock You. I saw it a few years ago (the wonderful Kerry Ellis again) and it was one big rockin' party from start to finish. The story line was, well, almost non-existant which would normally irritate the t*** off me, but it was such a fab concert-like show that it simply didn't matter

    I have seen Chicago eight times in London, each time the cast changed I went to see it - love it

    and the seas of our friendship are calm
    but as long as I live I will remember

    theatre

    I loved We Will Rock you too - a brilliant show although still don't understand why the lead man was American when it is based on a British band!!!! Would def see it again and again and again.

    Saw Oliver! on Thursday and loved it. Rowan Atkinson was fab as Fagin, typical face expressions but really brill - worth seeing. Thought Sykes was a little weak - didn't have jodie but the girl who played Nancy was just fantastic - great with the kids and Nipper was outstanding - one of the gang - had us all in hysterics and grinning. If you do go, it is damn hot in there and the seats are very, very close together and not raised in the stalls. But go see it!!!

    This evening I saw "Mary goes First at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, London.

    The Orange Tree is a tiny theatre in the round and is without doubt my favourite theatre. If you haven't been there, the unique intimate atmosphere is worth savouring in itself and the perfporamces of all genres are consistently of an extremely high standard.

    This was a revival of a comedy written by Henry Arthur Jones in 1913 and was hugely enjoyable. The action revolved around the jealousy about social position and the manipulations within the political parties at the time.

    It was very funny from start to finish with superb acting.

    Calendar Girls Kings Glasgow

    Very familiar and sad story but a triumphant tale of human kindness .

    Played by Elaine C smith and Jennifer Ellison primarily this was a hoot and was so worth the admission money.

    The 6 actresses of the title plus support from Ruth Madoc as the WI official was a great night out and raising money for a good cause also.

    As this tours I suggest getting tickets Im sure you will enjoy

    I have recently seen revivals of two plays.

    Just over a week ago I saw "The Thunderbolt" by Arthur Wingfield Pinnero at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond. This is always a favourite haunt of minw and I love this tiny theatre in the round.

    "The Thunderbolt" was first performed in 1908 and there have only been two known subsequent professionl productions in 1945 and 1966.

    It depicts the arguing over an inheritance and the hypocrisy of middle-class values. I very much enjoyed the production really agree with everything that Michael Billington wrote about it in The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/2010...medium=twitter

    Last Saturday I saw a revival of "Waiting in the Wings" by Noel Coward at the Pentameter Theatre in Hampstead.

    It was first performed in 1960 and, like "The Thuderbold", had a large cast which may go some way to explaining why there have only been a couple of susbsequent professional productions.

    I must declare an interest insofar as I know the producer of this show but I really did think that it was very good indeed. The action takes place in a retirement home for former actresses and it was fascinating to see the various characters and how they interacted with each other.

    It largely centered upon the need to add a conservatory to the building, the raising of funds and press interest in the home. All of the characters were very believable and quite complex with things not turning out the way that you would expect.

    Overall I thought that they were two thoroughly enjoyable productions to watch.

    Ghost stories - was very disappointed after all the reviews, as I didn't find it scary at all. (and Im the jumpy type!) :-(

    Phantom - very atmospheric and better than I thought it would be.

    Jersey Boys - again pleasantly surprised, very enjoyable. Great singing.

    Les Miserables - great, seen it 3 times.

    Sound of Music - good songs, that you know, and enjoyable.

    Cabaret - loved this one, serious moments too that made you think.

    Shadowlands - wonderful moving play.

    Thats all for now. Seen others.

    EVITA

    Last week I went to see this musical for the first time - and what a good decision that was.

    At The Lowry in Salford, this Bill Kenwright production was superb.

    The sets, the sound and the lighting were excellent. The story is well known, as are many of the song - I just wonder why I never took in this show before.

    The Leading Lady ( Abigail Jaye ) has a magnificent voice and her rendition of 'Don't Cry For Me, Argentina' certainly brings a tear to the eye.

    A bloody good night out!

    ================================================== ======

    STONES IN HIS POCKETS

    I noticed this play is on tour until the end of the year and if you get a chance to see it - take it!

    A bitter/sweet story of what happens in a small village in County Kerry when a Hollywood film crew move in.

    Very funny in parts, very moving in others.

    The actors have a very unique way of playing the characters - but I won't spoit it for you. Go and find out !

    Have fun!

    Scarborough's Stephen Joseph Theatre has had a fantastic summer season.

    Boston Marriage - only has 3 players and all of them did great. This was in the main theatre (proscenium style) and is set in a New England drawing room around 1900 or so. It's not the most dynamic play so if you like changes of scenery and a load of brightly coloured dancers you're out of luck. But if you enjoy a complex play with layers of feeling, meaning and nuance, Boston Marriage is a nice example. For the literary minded ones among you.... it is a fascinating commentary on the nature of stasis, change, and interior and exterior worlds in the context of difference.

    The Mikado - Based on Gilbert & Sullivan's Mikado but set around an English cricket match and performed in the round. Unfortunately, this is now finished - and I really do mean UNFORTUNATELY! This was really good. It was musical, funny, sensitive, complex, ridiculous at times and just generally brilliant. I have no idea whether this will ever be performed again anywhere but if you have the chance to see it, take the chance. You'll know the performance by the Japanese mask under a cricket helmet on the promo posters.

    A Midsummer Night's Dream - It was performed in the round and is my second favourite production of Shakespeare's comedy. I have been seeing productions of MSND since about 1982 in London, Liverpool, Crewe, Scotland and New York so I'm not easily impressed. However, this production was really very well executed. The funnies were genuinely funny, Puck was an imp, Bottom was a bumbling old man and the whole thing was a production in which the sum was much greater than the parts.

    My favourite ever MSND was in the West End though. I like to tell people "I've seen Dawn French's Bottom". It's a particularly intriguing claim in spanking circles! But she played Bottom in MSND and raised the bar for Bottoms forever.

    Right now, the Stephen Joseph is showing Communicating Doors, which is (I'm told) a sort of farce involving time travel. I haven't seen it yet, but I will because this little local theatre is producing great quality stuff at the moment.

    This version of The Mikado was performed at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond 3 years ago and it did work remarkably well and was very funny.

    The following year, the same group returned and did an updated version of The Pirates of Penzance which was transformed in to a Gangster type setting. Sadly, I have to say that it did not work anything like so well.

    saw Marti , didnt really like the show

    We also saw Spamalot with Todd Carty and Bonnie Langford which was very funny and got the crowd singing along


    However at Xmas we saw Spiderman on Broadway and thats a real spectacle , Spidey swings around the auditorium and he and the Green Goblin fight above you for the finale , the songs were all by U2 and the whole night was a blast , I see Wicked is touring next year and I urge you to go see it

    Matilda the Musical is fantastic and has music by Tim Minchin. It has just opened on Broadway and is still on in London

    I went to see 'Once' yesterday in London, currently on at the Pheonix, Charring cross road.

    The leaflet said it was amazing and brilliant.

    To be honest I found it a little odd. Its the only thing I have ever seen that didnt have a 'set start' a lot of the actors were on stage playing music and it was only when the lights in the theatre dimmed we realised it had started. Its a love story based around a girl from Chechz and an Irishman. The setting is Dublin.

    has anyone else seen it?
