The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe was the first of C.S. Lewis’ much-loved books to be written in his series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Since its publication in 1950 there have been numerous adaptations. Michael Fentiman’s new version, based on the original production by Sally Cookson, is a magically warm and inventive piece of theatre.

If you think it’s too soon for jokes surrounding Prince Andrew’s sex abuse allegations or the Meghan and Kate wedding feud, it’s probably best you don’t see this show. Because this story, inspired by the hugely popular Channel 4 favourite of the same name, holds nothing back. There are jokes from minute one to minute end, all of which tread the line of being hilarious and too much. All of them poke fun at the royals, so if you’re one of them who hold them up to a high esteem, avoid yourself the discomfort. However, if like me you do love humour that makes a large spoof of things, and does it successfully, then this is a fantastic night out.

Twenty years ago, the world fell in love with a quirky young woman by the name of Amélie Poulain. The French waitress stuck in her own little universe slowly starts to help people find their happiness, finally reaching hers. The stone-skipping and crème brûlée-cracking character played by Audrey Tautou immediately charmed her way into popular culture and by 2015 Daniel Messé, Nathan Tysen, and Craig Lucas had adapted Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s beloved film into a stage musical with Samantha Barks and Phillippa Soo both taking the titular role at separate times in the US.
