MAKING THINGS RIGHT
NICHOLAS NICKLEBY
at the Gielgud Theatre

MAKING THINGS RIGHT

It's back: The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. This six-and-a-half hour production (down from the original's eight-and-a-half hours) has some grand moments, but it doesn't set the theatre alight.

FULLY INVOLVED
THE VERTICAL HOUR
at the Royal Court - Jerwood Theatre

FULLY INVOLVED

Truth be told, The Vertical Hour, is minor (David) Hare. Yet, isn't it great to have a playwright who engages directly with the times in which we live.

CARD SHARP
DEALER'S CHOICE
at Trafalgar Studio 1

CARD SHARP

Patrick Marber's Dealer's Choice is a serious comedy that speaks volumes about addiction and obsession, fantasy and delusion.

NOT WASTED ON YOUTH
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
at the National Theatre (Olivier)

NOT WASTED ON YOUTH

This latest version of Much Ado About Nothing is edgy and neurotic...taking its cue from, shall we say, the maturity of its leading performers, Simon Russell Beale and Zoe Wanamaker.

TONE POEMS
MARIANNE DREAMS
at the Almeida

TONE POEMS

For a show about the transformative powers of art, Marianne Dreams of all pieces shouldn't feel so stillborn.

HAPPY PANTOLAND
CINDERELLA
at the Old Vic

HAPPY PANTOLAND

This is a Cinderella for a metrosexual age, where children are wise beyond their years. Did anyone say civil partnership ceremony?

SHORT AND TO THE POINT
THE FAMILY PLAYS
at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs

SHORT AND TO THE POINT

The Family Plays is just as described: a double- bill of plays from foreign shores, each of which shows a family oblivious to the catastrophes that befall all too many lives.

REGAL TO THE TEETH
OTHELLO
at the Donmar Warehouse

REGAL TO THE TEETH

Michael Grandage's production of Othello puts the emphasis where it should be- on the title character. And it pays off. Chiwetel Ejiofor's performance as the Moor is priceless.

ONE AND ALL- GOD BLESS
A CHRISTMAS CAROL/IKRISMAS KHEROL
at the Young Vic

ONE AND ALL- GOD BLESS

A South African take on A Christmas Carol/Ikrismas Kherol, complete with a female Scrooge. No bah humbug here.

A CHINK IN THE ARMOR
DOUBT: A PARABLE
at the Tricycle Theatre

A CHINK IN THE ARMOR

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

John Patrick Shanley's Doubt forces audiences to take a fair amount of the action on faith. Many details of the plot just don't add up.
