EYE OF THE STORM
OEDIPUS
at the National (Olivier)

EYE OF THE STORM

This most tragic of plays has a superb Ralph Fiennes in the title role. But this isn't just a showy star turn. The entire cast lifts this into a proper ensemble piece.

CRUEL ENDEAVOR
CREDITORS
at the Donmar Warehouse

CRUEL ENDEAVOR

Actor-turned- director Alan Rickman's acutely observed production of Strindberg's Creditors stuns an audience with its unvarnished view of human venality.

THE GOOD OLD DAYS
WASTE
at the Almeida Theatre

THE GOOD OLD DAYS

This revival of Harley Granville Barker's Waste wants for precisely nothing, especially from the second act onward. It's scintillating theater as only the British can do it.

HE'S NOT HEAVY, HE'S...
RAIN MAN
at the Apollo

HE'S NOT HEAVY, HE'S...

A road movie with two super stars turned into a play-without said stars. Impossible! Yet Rain Man somehow works. Credit the compelling nature of the material and the central performances of Josh Hartnett and Adam Godley.

HERO OR VILLAIN?
IVANOV
at Wyndham's

HERO OR VILLAIN?

This is a brilliant revival of Chekhov's early play. Michael Grandage has assembled an exceptional cast-did anyone say Kenneth Branagh- and adapter Tom Stoppard has worked his magic, too.

SPARKLING BUBBLES
GIGI
at Open Air-Regents Park

SPARKLING BUBBLES

In case one forgot, there's more to Lerner and Loewe than just My Fair Lady and Brigadoon. Take Gigi , for example-here presented in a well-done production at the Open Air.

I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME..?
THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES
at Vaudeville

I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME..?

The pros and cons of feminism are given a too thorough going over in Joanna Murray-Smith's The Female of the Species. There's a strong whiff of desperation as the play plods along.

 SEEING IS BELIEVING...OR IS IT?
SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN AUTHOR
at Minerva Theater, Chichester

SEEING IS BELIEVING...OR IS IT?

Rupert Goold has come up witha brilliant take on Luigi Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author-true to the spirit of what the Italian master was attempting 87 years ago.

SKULL DOINGS
THE REVENGERS TRAGEDY
at the National Theatre (Olivier)

SKULL DOINGS

The Revengers Tragedy ( Thomas Middleton's gory Jacobean story) comes across as an extravagantly over-staged production. It operates on the principle that nothing succeeds like excess.

THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS
THE MUSIC MAN
at the Chichester Festival Theater

THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS

This production of The Music Man allows an audience to get the full flavor of the Meredith Wilson tuner-and that's pretty good fixings.
