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.

KEEPING THE BEAT
THE BROTHERS SIZE
at the Young Vic's Maria Theatre

KEEPING THE BEAT

The Brothers Size shows that young playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney has a superabundance of what can only be called soul.There is definitely music pouring from him.

STRANGE BEDFELLOWS
THE ARSONISTS
at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs

STRANGE BEDFELLOWS

This revival of Max Frisch's 1953 play The Fire Raisers( here re-titled The Arsonists ), a so-called moral play without a moral is a biting, enduring fable, that, on this occasion, has somehow mislaid its bite.

TEAR DOWN THE WALL
STATEMENT OF REGRET
at the National Theatre (Cottesloe)

TEAR DOWN THE WALL

No, playwright Kwame Kwei- Armah isn't quite the second coming of August Wilson. But his Statement of Regret has some powerful things to say about the need for the (British) black community to get a grip on its past so as to better handle its future.

OVER THERE
WAR HORSE
at the National Theatre( Olivier)

OVER THERE

War Horse is, in essence , an horrific World War I tale nevertheless, through a blend of puppet wizardry and touching (children's) story, it manages to be a compelling and moving theatre experience.

GIANTS OF THE EARTH
THE GIANT
at the Hampstead Theatre

GIANTS OF THE EARTH

Michelangelo faces off against Leonardo da Vinci, for bragging rights in Florence: The prize: Sculpting the statue of David. Antony Sher's The Giant adroitly hammers out the tale of this epic competition. But, given the protagonists, he could have carved out a little bit more of the back story.
