#MischiefMay: Celebrating 1,999 performances (sort of) with The Play That Goes Wrong’s West End cast

#MischiefMay is all about celebrating the world-dominating success of the comedy genius of Mischief Theatre onstage (running on all continents except Antarctica) and, increasingly, onscreen.

Salome Q&A video and photos: What would the censor have made of this regendered version of Oscar Wilde’s play?

After The Tempest and Lord of the Flies, my last of three post-show Q&As with Lazarus Theatre company for their 2019 season at Greenwich Theatre was last night to their new version of Oscar Wilde's Salome.

Q&A photos and video: What would the late Michel Legrand think of this chamber version of his musical Amour?

Q&A video and photos: Why is the Coronet the perfect home for The Glass Piano court tale?

9 May 2019|

Visits to the Coronet Theatre, until last week known as The Print Room at the Coronet, make me miss the days when I lived in Notting Hill (or rather, near enough, Ladbroke Grove).

Heroes Q&A video and photos: Raise your hand if you think David Bowie fandom transcends generations

1 May 2019|

Are you a David Bowie fan? What first turned you on? Was it seeing his Top of the Pops debut as Ziggy Stardust? Was it your parents taking you to your first Bowie concert when you were still a baby? Was it memorising the album liner notes in your bedroom?

Panel on the RSC’s gender-flipped Taming of the Shrew: Kate & Petruchio in the age of #MeToo

29 April 2019|

I had a fabulous time last week in Stratford-upon-Avon seeing Justin Audibert’s new re-gendered production of Shakespeare’s early “battle of the sexes” comedy The Taming of the Shrew (1591), set in a parallel Elizabethan universe where women are in charge.

Q&A video and photos: How is Donald Trump responsible for Other People’s Money?

Intra Muros Q&A video and photos: What is the point of theatre? How do actors marry up their dual lives?

14 April 2019|
