THE TROUBLE WITH MAUDE
TOYER
at the Arts Theatre

THE TROUBLE WITH MAUDE

Toyer is a mess - a scaremongering two-hander that wastes the talents of actress Alice Krige.

KING IN DECLINE
KING LEAR
at the Young Vic

KING IN DECLINE

Rupert Goold 's production of King Lear trumps on almost every front, with one of the truest, most empathetic Lears in memory.

CLOSE TO BOILING OVER
ENGLAND PEOPLE VERY NICE
at the National (Olivier)

CLOSE TO BOILING OVER

This wild and sprawling hymn to multiculturalism is not perfection, but it's just the kind of play the National should be doing.

RUFFLING FEATHERS
ENTERTAINING MR. SLOANE
at Trafalgar Studio 1

RUFFLING FEATHERS

This revival of the Joe Orton classic is good, but it could have been superb with a more charismatic actor in the title role.

FURY BEHIND THE LAUGHS
ENTERTAINING MR SLOANE
at Trafalgar Studio 1

FURY BEHIND THE LAUGHS

Joe Orton's early play is commendably revived. The flow from comedy into violence and back again is cleverly exploited by an expert cast.

 A TAD TOO STRONG
PRIVATE LIVES
at the Hampstead

A TAD TOO STRONG

There's nothing wrong with playing Private Lives for its emotional truth, rather than merely its clever repartee, but this production goes overboard.

THE DAY THE MUSIC...
DUET FOR ONE
at the Almeida

THE DAY THE MUSIC...

Almost 30 years on, Duet for One has lost none of its ability to hit us where it hurts.

COLLECTIVE GUILT
COMPLICIT
at The Old Vic

COLLECTIVE GUILT

It's not only the travails of Richard Dreyfuss that are on view in Complicit. The play itself is weak and already dated.

SHOW...GLORIOUS SHOW
OLIVER!
at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane

SHOW...GLORIOUS SHOW

This Oliver! is a blowsy, rambunctious entertainment that honors the exclamation point in the show's title.

A LOOK BACK AT 2008
PASSING STAGE
A LOOK BACK AT 2008

Our reviewer ruminates on the highs and lows of the 2008 season. And offers a final tribute to a giant of the theatre scene, Harold Pinter.
