LACKING VENOM
SWIMMING WITH SHARKS
at the Vaudeville

LACKING VENOM

Hollywood may be full of mean people, but their bark is much worse than their bite, in Michael Lesslie's stage adaptation of the Kevin Spacey movie Swimming with Sharks. Christian Slater comes across as an amiable frat boy, not a Hollywood fear monger.

FOLLOW THE LEADER
SWIMMING WITH SHARKS
at the Vaudeville

FOLLOW THE LEADER

Michael Lesslie's Swimming with Sharks, is one of those cutthroat blood in the water tales of Hollywood that lacks the proper bite.

THE COUNTRY WIFE
at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

NOT WHAT IT APPEARS

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

This revival of William Wycherley's The Country Wife, offers a masterly performance by David Haig, as the doltish Pinchwife. Otherwise, Jonathan Kent's production could have been better.

GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
at the Apollo

THE ART OF THE SALE

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

Just a play about some Chicago real estate salesmen trying to stay alive. But, in playwright David Mamet's hands, Glengarry Glen Ross is a brilliant bit of urban office poetry

SHADOWLANDS
at Wyndhams

HEARTSOUNDS

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

This well- done revival of William Nicholson's Shadowlands offers up an added bonus: Charles Dance's eye-opening performance. Who knew he had such a range and strength of feeling.

DEALER'S CHOICE
at the Menier Chocolate Factory

A FULL HOUSE

When is a game of poker, not just a game of poker: When you're watching the revival of Patrick Marber's Dealer's Choice, here exquisitely directed by Samuel West. What once had been a flawed play is revealed to be a contemporary classic.

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?
