BWW Review: Say 'Hello' to the New Year with THE BOOK OF MORMON at The ParamountBWW Review: Say 'Hello' to the New Year with THE BOOK OF MORMON at The Paramount
by Jay Irwin - Jan 1, 2016

So it all really just rests on the cast for this particular tour and let me say, they bring it as usual and even add in a few elements I've not seen in the show before. (more...)

by Laura Jones - Dec 10, 2015

Following a ten-year hiatus from the London stage, A Christmas Carol at the Noel Coward Theatre marks Jim Broadbent's return to the West End. Patrick Barlow's take on the Charles Dickens classic is unlike anything I've ever seen before - which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
