THE FOREST FROM THE TREES
THE HOTHOUSE
at the National(Lyttelton)

THE FOREST FROM THE TREES

Early Pinter, The Hothouse , which takes place in a government mental institution, is probably his funniest and most accessible play.

NOT MUCH TO CHEER ABOUT
IN CELEBRATION
at the Duke Of York's

NOT MUCH TO CHEER ABOUT

Eagerly awaited, In Celebration is rather flat like warm beer. And as for Orlando Bloom, silence is not golden

MERCY, MERCY, MERCY
THE MERCHANT OF VENICE
at Shakespeare's Globe

MERCY, MERCY, MERCY

Can there be a better place to do The Merchant of Venice, than Shakespeare's Globe? Up close and personal to all the players, the play's dynamics are on full view

GIVING IT A SHOT
ELLING
at the Trafalgar Studios

GIVING IT A SHOT

Elling sets out to convince us of the cuddily inate genius of the mad. No chance, but there is a certain sweetness to its pitch

FORM REVERSAL
BETRAYAL
at the Donmar Warehouse

FORM REVERSAL

Betrayal could be the feeling when audiences know how a show ends when it starts. But, it's merely a revival of Harold Pinter's wonderful backwards play

AMEN CORNER
THE LAST CONFESSION
at Theatre Royal, Haymarket

AMEN CORNER

A murder mystery involving papal succession and Vatican finances? Unlikely. But, The Last Confession really works. Amen to David Suchet

SOCIAL ARCHEOLOGY
THE LETTER
at Wyndham’s Theatre

SOCIAL ARCHEOLOGY

Somerset Maugham's 80-year old play The Letter has been meticulously revived; and so has the career of Brideshead Revisited stalwart, Anthony Andrews

MONEY ISN'T EVERYTHING
THE LORD OF THE RINGS
at The Drury Lane

MONEY ISN'T EVERYTHING

Costing around 25 million bucks , The Lord of the Rings is a take-your-breath away visual experience. Too bad, all that money couldn't buy a better score or an audience-involving libretto

BEGGARS OPERETTA
KISMET
at the London Coliseum

BEGGARS OPERETTA

Kismet, back in revival and done by the ENO-who could ask for anything more? Well, not quite. The score still wows and the cast is top-shelf, but the production is a soggy mess

TOO EASY ON THE MENACE
GASLIGHT
at the Old Vic

TOO EASY ON THE MENACE

Patrick Hamilton's a popular bloke. His play Gaslight has now been revived on both sides of the Atlantic. This production has the right atmosphere, but lacks the nail-biting excesses of true melodrama
