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.

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.

BOBBY AND BETTY
IN A FOREST DARK AND DEEP
at the Vaudeville

BOBBY AND BETTY

LaBute’s heavy-handed reference in his play’s title and setting to buried secrets and psychological depth is never rewarded.

EMOTIONAL ARMOURY
FLARE PATH
at the Haymarket

EMOTIONAL ARMOURY

In its first London revival since its 1942 premiere, the characters in Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path tiptoe around emotional landmines while war goes on around them.

THE WELL-MADE PLAY
FLARE PATH
at Haymarket

THE WELL-MADE PLAY

Driven by character development and dramatic momentum that builds at just the right pace, you leave the theatre in no doubt that you’ve had full value for your money.

WEST-END TASSLES
THE HURLY BURLY SHOW
at the Garrick Theatre

WEST-END TASSLES

There probably is a good show to be created out of burlesque, but surely you have to do more than revive the old base acts.

THE NEW ROYAL SHAKESPEARE THEATRE
A THUMPING SUCCESS
at Stratford upon Avon

THE NEW ROYAL SHAKESPEARE THEATRE

Although the doors have been open to the public since last November, the new theatre swung into full operation mode with the first previews of last season’s revivals of King Lear and Romeo and Juliet.

ASTRAL BIGAMIST
BLITHE SPIRIT
at the Apollo

ASTRAL BIGAMIST

All this current production can do is remind us of other, better takes on this classic comedy.
