Review: THE KING AND I, Dominion Theatre

What is classic for some feels dated to others. Those who were horrified by Daniel Fish’s starkly stripped back version of Oklahoma! should rush to the Dominion Theatre for something much more traditional. After a UK tour, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I settles in for a brief six week run.


Producent Cameron Mackintosh is verheugd te melden dat Milan van Waardenburg, vanaf maandag 11 maart 2024, de hoofdrol van Jean Valjean gaat spelen in Les Misérables in het Londense Sondheim Theatre. Milan maakt zijn West End debuut nadat hij onlangs nog in Nederland en België in Les Misérables te zien was. Voor zijn vertolking van de hoofdrol van Jean Valjean ontving hij lovende kritieken en een Musical Award nominatie voor Beste Hoofdrolspeler in een Grote Musical. Milan was eerder oa te zien als Prins Hans in Disney's Frozen in Duitsland, Dimitri in Anastasia zowel in Duitsland als in Nederland, luitenant Frederic Charles en Quasimodo in Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame en Herbert in Tanz der Vampire, beide op tournee door Duitsland. Naast Milan zijn ook de Nederlanders Djavan van de Fliert en Anouk van Laake in de Londense versie van Les Misérables te zien.

Review: WEST SIDE STORY at Châtelet

For the 6th time since the beginning of the 80s, West Side Story, the Berstein-Sondheim Laurents masterpiece, was back in Paris for a limited run as part of a French tour before going to Sydney in April. In sync with the release of the Bradley Cooper biopic Maestro, it is great that younger generations are able to get a look at the real original thing.

Critics' Pick: Aliya Al-Hassan's Best Theatre of 2023

The pure joy of theatre is its ability to constantly renew and surprise. For me, 2023 saw a plethora of excellent musicals. Notoriously hard to get right, this year seemed to feature both clever revivals and future successes, many of which remained in my thoughts long after I left the theatre.

'2023 Was the Year The National Theatre Stood Up to the Plate' - Alexander Cohen's Best Theatre of 2023

The National Theatre somewhat mutedly celebrated its 60th anniversary this year. There was ostensibly little fanfare. No public flotillas, no audiences with royal patrons or forty-one gun salutes. Instead we have been on the receiving end of presents, and a plethora of them in the form of one knockout production after another.

Review: BACKSTAIRS BILLY, Duke of York's Theatre

As the curtain rises, we’re met with a sea of pink – pink damask walls and heavy pink velvet curtains, with pink and white flowers adorning every available surface. This is the Garden Room at Clarence House (brilliantly designed by Christopher Oram), and the year is 1979.

Review: THE TIME TRAVELLER'S WIFE, Apollo Theatre
