A HYMN TO HIM
PRESENT LAUGHTER
at the National Theatre (Lyttelton)

A HYMN TO HIM

( Please bear with us while we sort out formatting woes that for the moment are causing an excess of italics)

Lightning hasn't quite struck twice at the National: Present Laughter is no Private Lives - even though the author( Noel Coward) and the director (Howard Davies) are the same in both cases.

INHABITING MACBETH

( Please bear with us while we sort out formatting problems that for the moment are causing an excess of italics)

All hail the Thane of Cawdor all hail Macbeth - all hail Patrick Stewart in the title role, giving a performance for the ages, under the superb direction of Rupert Goold.

A GILDED INVITATION

( Please bear with us while we sort out formatting problems that for the moment are causing an excess of italics)

Carson McCullers The Member of the Wedding at the Young Vic is getting a first-class production under Matthew Dunster's direction. This is a play that taps into teen angst like few before it or after it, have ever done. Special kudos to Portia as Berenice

RHINOCEROS
at the Royal Court

HERD MENTALITY

(Please bear with us while we sort out formatting problems that for the moment are causing an excess of italics)

Benedict Cumberbatch gives a riveting performance as Berenger in Dominic Cooke's Royal Court production of Ionesco's Rhinoceros. The question posed: Is it better to lie down with the herd than to stand and say no?

THE SOUND AND THE FURY
MACBETH
at the Gielgud Theatre

THE SOUND AND THE FURY

( Please bear with us while we sort out formatting problems that for the moment are causing an excess of italics)

Is this the best Macbeth ever? Well, not exactly. What truly impresses here, though, is the vision of director Rupert Goold. And Patrick Stewart's magnetic assaying of the title role

MASS HYSTERIA
PARADE
at the Donmar Warehouse

MASS HYSTERIA

(Please bear with us while we sort out formatting problems that for the moment are causing an excess of italics)

Despite its grim story line, Parade delivers a compelling propulsive staging. Not bad for the directorial debut of Rob Ashford

A DISAPPEARING NUMBER
at the Barbican Theatre

THE SUM OF ALL ITS PARTS

( Please bear with us while we sort out formatting problems that for the moment are causing an excess of italics)

In A Disappearing Number, Complicite's Simon McBurney has been able to take the complex subject of higher mathematics and make it into an fascinating time in the theatre

HEART OF DARKNESS
EMPEROR JONES
at National Theatre( Olivier)

HEART OF DARKNESS

Eugene O'Neill's early experimental play The Emperor Jones still has the power to move audiences. Paterson Joseph is superb in the title role.

THE HEART WILL OUT
LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST
at Shakespeare's Globe

THE HEART WILL OUT

Let joy be unrestrained: Love's Labour's Lost...is a winner. This delicate souffle is staged exceedingly well by Dominic Dromgoole and his creative team at Shakespeare's Globe.

GREAT STAYING POWER
JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
at the Adelphi

GREAT STAYING POWER

For a show that started out as a 15-minute lark nearly 40 years ago, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has certainly shown great staying power-and a greatly enhanced length too
