WITH MALICE ON HIS MIND
RICHARD III
at the Old Vic

WITH MALICE ON HIS MIND

It’s doubtful we’ll see a finer, more vital Richard III in a decade.

DUMBED DOWN
GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR
at the Young Vic

DUMBED DOWN

In trying to reinterpret the story to make it more universal, what we see now is a mutant version meant not for fans of the arts, but for simple savages.

SOME CONTRACTS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN...NOT
DOCTOR FAUSTUS
at Shakespeare’s Globe

SOME CONTRACTS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN...NOT

Our naughty hero wages war, quite literally, against the heavens.

DOUBLE BLUFF
ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
at Theatre Royal Haymarket

DOUBLE BLUFF

Stoppard maneuvers two of the most dispensable minor characters ever conceived into a central position via convoluted puns, collegiate debate and knowingly arched eyebrows over the Bard.

THE ECSTASY AND THE AGONY
BETRAYAL
at the Comedy

THE ECSTASY AND THE AGONY

The play may be a storm in a domestic teacup, but the electricity crackles, and the fine bone china, once smashed, can never be fixed.

Reviewed by: SAM MARLOWE READ MORE
ALTER EGO
BUTLEY
at the Duchess

ALTER EGO

The other characters get repeatedly lashed by Butley's terrifying humour, but for the audience, spending time in his company is pure entertainment.

THE GREEN MONSTER
SHREK
at Theatre Royal Drury Lane

THE GREEN MONSTER

For anyone whose expectations are not sky-high, the reward is an agreeable diversion with a nice line in both showbiz savvy and chutzpah.

OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS TWICE
ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS
at the National (Lyttleton)

OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS TWICE

James Corden comic talent is brilliantly steered by director Nicholas Hytner in a reinvention of Goldoni’s 18th century work.

STATELY PASSION
LUISE MILLER
at the Donmar Warehouse

STATELY PASSION

Michael Grandage's choice of this rarely seen but historically important play is representative of the taste and distinction with which he has managed the Donmar.

LOSING THE ORCHARD
THE CHERRY ORCHARD
at the National (Olivier)

LOSING THE ORCHARD

Chekhov's subtly shifting, contradictory moods must be handled with care by his characters, a responsibility that is botched by this production.
