A HARD SLOG
THE SOUND OF MUSIC
at the London Palladium

A HARD SLOG

The re-casting of The Sound of Music has caused a once commendably eccentric, even moving production to morph into a conventional and routine one.

A GUILTY PLEA
LEGAL FICTIONS
at the Savoy

A GUILTY PLEA

Legal Fictions, two one-act plays by John Mortimer, are slender divertissements, not up to his usual high standards. Where's Rumpole when we need him?

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
THE HOMECOMING
at the Almeida

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

Harold Pinter's The Homecoming is the toast of two theatre capitals. Who could have imagined that a play with so seemingly specific a text, could be played in two such different ways.

IN THE EYE OF THE STORM
THE VORTEX
at the Apollo

IN THE EYE OF THE STORM

If Noel Coward's The Vortex merits a visit-and it does- it's to witness a playwright, who in later life kept his Private Lives guarded , laying himself bare.

THERE'S ALWAYS ANOTHER DAY
RING ROUND THE MOON
at the Playhouse Theatre

THERE'S ALWAYS ANOTHER DAY

This revival of Jean Anouilh's Ring Round the Moon falls mostly flat. It reminds one yet again, that airiness and sophistication can be the hardest qualities to achieve on stage.

A SUPERABUNDANCE OF RICHES
SWEET WILLIAM
at Trafalgar Studios 2

A SUPERABUNDANCE OF RICHES

Michael Pennington's Sweet William is a seamless example of the thespian art. It should be essential viewing for all students of the Bard, not to mention those who need a reminder of the sheer applicability of his canon to the way we lived then and still do now.

A MAZE WITHIN A MAZE
THE HOUR WE KNEW NOTHING OF EACH OTHER
at the National Theatre (Lyttelton)

A MAZE WITHIN A MAZE

The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other may be about nothing more than its admittedly unusual concept. Whatever it is, it's the nearest we've had so far this year to the theater's generally untapped potential as Rorschach test.

NOT ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPT
SPEED-THE-PLOW
at the Old Vic

NOT ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPT

David Mamet's Speed-the- Plow is a bruising morality play about, of all things, Hollywood. The play ends on an upbeat note...but that's not necessarily a happy ending.

NAMING RIGHTS
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
at the Vaudeville

NAMING RIGHTS

Yet another revival of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. This one is okay, with a domineering Lady Bracknell, in the person of Penelope Keith. No surprises, but enjoyable.

HAPPINESS IS....
HAPPY NOW?
at the National Theatre (Cottesloe)

HAPPINESS IS....

Lucinda Coxon's Happy Now? is an accomplished and highly likable play. The question in the title is not so easily answered, given just how easy it is to make someone unhappy now.
