Sus retains its power and relevance, but one can't help wondering if it requires an update to account for the changes in policing minorities in the 43 years since it was written - at their roots, the problems are the same, but they present somewhat differently.

The theatre formerly known as Tristan Bates, located just across the road from the Palace in the West End, has undergone a refurbishment and come out of the pandemic with a brand new name and snazzy facelift. Now called the Seven Dials Playhouse, it’s finally opened its doors again with a camp, compassionate story about hurt and acceptance that’s really a tribute to musicals at its core.

The last time Reg was breaking hearts on a London stage was at the Apollo Theatre back in 2015. Simpler times. Much has been said and many comparisons have been drawn between the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s and everything that’s happened in this pandemonium of a pandemic.

BWW Review: HAMLET, Theatre Royal Windsor Photo BWW Review: HAMLET, Theatre Royal Windsor
by Cindy Marcolina - Jul 25, 2021

The hottest Hamlet on the scene is an octogenarian. But Ian McKellen’s latest stage appearance in Windsor is far from being a geriatric production. In the run up to their opening, McKellen and the company described it as “age blind”, almost an experiment to see how the visual aspect of a Shakespeare play impacts the content. The resulting answer is difficult to pin down. Hamlet’s perceived age changes the dynamics. But also, surprisingly, it ultimately doesn’t matter much.

This modern classic, which captures the fragility of friendship, happiness and life itself, won both the 1995 Olivier and Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy, after its premiere at the Royal Court and subsequent transfer to the West End.
