Carrie Dunn

Carrie Dunn Carrie is the UK editor-in-chief for BroadwayWorld. After spending her formative years reading books and ending up with a Masters degree in English literature from King's College London, it was inevitable that Carrie should be a journalist. Her pure and simple delight in the art-form of musical theatre led to the Guardian asking her to be their West End Girl. Since then, she's picked up a PhD, and also written for many other UK publications, including the Times and the Independent. She has many eclectic loves, including sport, karaoke, reality television, MMORPGs, three-volume Victorian novels, the British seaside, embroidery and Veronica Mars.

It's a delight to see a showman of the old school back in the West End. Jim Dale takes us through his music hall roots (and teenage dance classes) to pop stardom to Carry On to Hollywood, showing some nimble footwork along the way as well as vocal cords that are still in excellent shape.

I haven't approached a show with such a mix of trepidation and excitement for a very long while. For the uninitiated, Shock Treatment is the filmic 'equal' to The Rocky Horror [Picture] Show - but rather than battling transvestite aliens,Brad and Janet are caught up in a reality media nightmare as the cracks in their marriage are exposed live on the local television channel.

All the other reviews I've read of this play are prefaced with a little note that the critic isn't a professional wrestling fan, and they go on to use terms such as 'bonkers' or 'far-fetched' to describe it.
