WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE WAR, MOMMY?
MARGUERITE
at the Haymarket

WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE WAR, MOMMY?

Marguerite is a real mess. It's one thing to remove the comedy from musical-comedy. But the creative team hasn't found anything to replace it with.

BIG DEAL
FAT PIG
at the Trafalgar Studios

BIG DEAL

Neil LaBute's 2004 off-Broadway hit Fat Pig has finally made it across the pond...and it still packs an emotional wallop. It underscores how easy it is to inflict pain on another person.

ALL I WANT IS A...
PYGMALION
at The Old Vic

ALL I WANT IS A...

This revival of Pygmalion is served up in a pleasant if not especially demanding staging...call it Shaw Lite.

DOING RIGHT
NEVER FORGET
at the Savoy

DOING RIGHT

Never Forget may be a brainless jukebox musical-but it's all rather endearing-and delivered without a trace of cynicism.

LETTING GO IS SO HARD TO DO
ROSMERSHOLM
at the Almeida

LETTING GO IS SO HARD TO DO

Ibsen's rarely seen Rosmersholm is receiving a top-drawer Almeida Theatre revival from Tony winner Anthony Page (A Doll's House)

NOT SO GOOD EARTH
THE GOOD SOUL OF SZECHUAN
at the Young Vic

NOT SO GOOD EARTH

This dull version of The Good Soul of Szechuan may prompt uninitiates of Brecht's work to flee in self-defense.

A ROLE OF ONES OWN
FUNNY GIRL
at Chichester Festival's Minerva Theatre

A ROLE OF ONES OWN

Hardly, if ever seen in revival, this production of Funny Girl is efficient enough to engage your attention. Its star, Samantha Spiro is no you know who (who could be another Barbra Streisand?), but she's good enough to make the role her own.

MANY HAPPY RETURNS STANLEY
THE BIRTHDAY PARTY
at Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith

MANY HAPPY RETURNS STANLEY

Even now, 50 years after its premiere, Harold Pinter's career-making The Birthday Party marches to its own dread-inducing drum.
