RUSSIA IS BURNING
THE CHERRY ORCHARD
at the National (Olivier)

RUSSIA IS BURNING

A century after Chekhov passed, we are still caught up in the ways that he saw his world.

FROM OUT OF THE RUINS
MACBETH
at Stratford Theatre

FROM OUT OF THE RUINS

If you can live without the wonderfully atmospheric opening, this is a taut, exciting Macbeth with lashings of blood, bold stage effects and a true sense of atrocity.

AN UNBROKEN HEART
THE CHERRY ORCHARD
at the National (Olivier)

AN UNBROKEN HEART

Although this production seems to have deliberately de-sentimentalized this great text, the Chekhov classic nevertheless thrives on a cluster of beautifully observed performances.

LIVE AND LET LIVE
ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL
at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

LIVE AND LET LIVE

This utterly enjoyable revival by John Dove at the Globe sparkles with suppleness of thought, cleverness of plotting and beauty of expression.

MAKE 'EM LIKE THEY USED TO
BETTY BLUE EYES
at the Novello

MAKE 'EM LIKE THEY USED TO

Betty Blue Eyes turns the clock back 64 years for its period setting and about 45 years in its approach to musical comedy.

SHOWING ONE'S TEETH
ROCKET TO THE MOON
at the National (Lyttelton)

SHOWING ONE'S TEETH

Characters do a lot of smiling in this revival, possible because they’re happy, possibly because they’re covering up that they’re not.

AT DEATH'S DOOR
MOONLIGHT
at the Donmar Warehouse

AT DEATH'S DOOR

With language shifting between painfully moving and painfully funny, Sheibani’s production promises that this play will continue to be revived.

Reviewed by: JOHN NATHAN READ MORE
BRINGING HOME THE BACON
BETTY BLUE EYES
at the Novello

BRINGING HOME THE BACON

Richard Eyre’s impeccably timed production is steeped in an almost tactile period feel for a parochial English village, full of rousing life and a sliver of darkness.

KEEPING EYES DRY
THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG
at the Gielgud

KEEPING EYES DRY

While not an outright failure, the stage adaptation of this 1964 film is bland, with a mild Gallic charm that never fully justifies its existence.

OLD BAILEY
CAUSE CELEBRE
at the Old Vic

OLD BAILEY

A play originally conceived for radio and then rushed to the stage by a committee of directors, Cause Célèbre would need adjustments to measure up to the playwright’s best work.
