BWW Review: SHE LOVES ME, Menier Chocolate Factory
by Marianka Swain - Dec 8, 2016

For those seeking festive revelry, but with an equally seasonal undertow of quiet melancholy, She Loves Me is the blissful solution. Joe Masteroff, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's 1963 musical adaptation of Miklos Laszlo's play Parfumerie, which also inspired the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan vehicle You've Got Mail, is a sparkling Christmas bauble of a show that shone on Broadway earlier this year, and now comes to us in delectable intimate form in the small but mighty musicals powerhouse that is the Menier.

BWW Review: THE PERFECT MURDER, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, March 29 2016
by Jenny Ell - Mar 30, 2016

Back in February 2014, I watched the first touring production of Peter James' novel The Perfect Murder starring Les Dennis and Claire Goose as unhappily married couple Victor and Joan Smiley. Following this, Dead Simple - another of James' books - was adapted for the stage; here testament to his appeal and ability to make the text jump off the stage and stand up dramatically. The Perfect Murder is now playing across the UK again but this time with an ingenious casting move. Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace or Kat and Alfie from BBC's Eastenders are playing the two leads.
