BWW Review: SHREK THE MUSICAL, Manchester Palace Theatre
January 19, 2018

Shrek The Musical tells the tale of an ogre trying to get his swamp back. And David Lindsay-Abaire's adaptation has certainly managed to turn the famous Dreamworks animation into a real life spectacle.

BWW Review: DICK WHITTINGTON, Manchester Opera House
December 14, 2017

Traditionally, Dick Whittington tells the tale of a man who travels to London to find his fortune. And with infamous showman John Barrowman playing the staring role, Dick Whittington, and a charming Seventies duo, The Krankies, this production has the foundations to be a fantastic show. But despite keeping the audience laughing, there's no real plot, just a series of moments pieced together by songs.

BWW Review: SLEEPING BEAUTY: THE ROCK 'N' ROLL PANTO, Theatr Clwyd
November 30, 2017

It's that time of year again... panto season. Oh no it isn't. Oh yes it is. Sleeping Beauty at Theatr Clwyd begins with the cast in the audience dressed as fairies, with bubbles blowing everywhere, much to the delight of the audience.

BWW Review: UNCLE VANYA, Manchester HOME
November 23, 2017

Uncle Vanya at its simplest is a bleak take on the human condition. At its most complex, it's a harrowing look into the never-ending cycle of humanity and how easy it is to be consumed by your own mind.

BWW Review: THE TIN DRUM, Everyman Theatre, Liverpool
October 7, 2017

Disjointed. Chaotic. Haunting. The Tin Drum is a chilling tale that resonates in so many eras of society. Based on the 1959 novel Die Blechtrommel by G nter Grass, Kneehigh's production tells the story of Oskar, a boy born into the world already weary with the state of humanity. We see everything through his narration, from his mother's childhood to the war-torn place he lives in.
