A GLIMMER OF HOPE

EXPECTING THE UNEXPECTED
THE CITY
at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs

EXPECTING THE UNEXPECTED

Martin Crimp is back with his latest play, The City, in a bewitching production from Katie Mitchell that overrides much of what is irksome about the text.

FRAM
at the National (Olivier)

IT'S A COLD, COLD WORLD OUT THERE

GOING, GOING, GONE
GONE WITH THE WIND
at the New London

TIME MUST HAVE A STOP
VISITING MR GREEN
at theTrafalgar Studios 1

A FOLLY OF A PIECE
THE BLACK & WHITE BALL
at King's Head Theatre

A FOLLY OF A PIECE

There's a severe disconnect between the music and the book of The Black and White Ball. Too bad, when the music just happens to be that of Cole Porter.

DOOMED CONNECTION
BRIEF ENCOUNTER
at the Cinema Haymarket

DOOMED CONNECTION

This production of Noel Coward's Brief Encounter, under Emma Rice's direction is nothing short of a knockout. It bypasses the head and goes straight for the heart.

COME TO THE CABARET

Maria Friedman's back in Maria Friedman Re-arranged and though her vocal power is somewhat diminished, she is a performer whose enthusiasm and powers of connection are undimmed.
