At Last Q&A video and photos: How worried are you about the direction the UK is heading?

13 September 2019|

Are you worried about the state of politics and society in the UK today? That's the question I asked at the start of last night's post-show Q&A at London's Lion & Unicorn Theatre. The hands of all my panellists and nearly everyone sitting across from them in the audience shot up.

Q&A video and photos: What would Pete Buttigieg think of his Jekyll & Hyde incarnation?

8 September 2019|

Arrows & Traps' 18th production in its five-year history is also its tenth at London's Brockley Jack Theatre, where it is now an associate company, and its third in a Gothic trilogy. And it's a corker.

The Crown Dual Q&A video and photos: How to condense two Netflix seasons into 70 minutes… with more to come

4 September 2019|

We were all madly checking our phones for news in the bars afterwards, but while much of last night's Westminster drama was going on, at Wilton's Music Hall, we were getting to glorious grip with the (affectionate) comedy potential of the monarchy with The Crown Dual.

Q&A video and photos: How does the musical of Cabaret differ from the film?

30 August 2019|

I've seen Rufus Norris' multi-award-winning revival of Kander & Ebb's Broadway musical classic Cabaret twice before in the West End, when it first opened in 2006 and when it returned in 2010. It now kicks off a brand-new tour and it's more powerful than ever.

Queen of the Mist Q&A video and photos: Why should we have more Michael John LaChiusa in the UK?

21 August 2019|

Michael John LaChiusa was on his way back to the States by the time I chaired my post-show Q&A at the West End (and UK) premiere of his musical Queen Of The Mist - but I wonder if his ears were burning badly en route?

Q&A photos: Caught in the grey zone with Actually’s stars and director

12 August 2019|

Can we ever really know what happened between two people behind closed doors? That's the question at the heart of Anna Zeigler's provocative new two-hander Actually, and one the company, audience and I grappled with after Friday's performance.

The Time Of Our Lies Q&A video and photos: Did historian Howard Zinn predict our era of Trump & #fakenews?

7 August 2019|

A quick show of hands at last night's Q&A at the Park Theatre bore out my suspicion: most people, even left-leaning people, have not heard of Howard Zinn. Like those in the audience, before this show, I counted myself amongst them.

The View Upstairs video and photos: What happened in New Orleans on 24 June 1973? Why should we remember?

4 August 2019|

I had just enough time to wipe away my tears - I was sobbing - at the end of The View Upstairs before jumping up after the curtain call to announce this post-show Q&A at Soho Theatre.

Q&A video and photos: Discussing Paula Hawkins’ hit thriller The Girl on the Train with Samantha Womack and cast

2 August 2019|

What is it about a great whodunnit thriller? What makes us keep turning the page? How does that inquisitive excitement translate onstage?
