BLISS INDUCING
CLOUD NINE
at the Almeida

BLISS INDUCING

Caryl Churchill's Cloud Nine is given a rousing revival by Thea Sharrock, transporting its audience to that sacred place promised by the title.

VINCENT RIVER
at the Trafalgar Studios 2

SECRETS FROM THE GRAVE

Philip Ridley's Vincent River tells a tale of a grieving mother forced to deal with revelations about the proclivities of her deceased gay son. Sound familiar: As with Tennessee Williams's Suddenly Last Summer, this is potent and heart rending theatre.

WHOLE LOT OF SHAKIN' GOIN' ON

Long overdue, Hairspray has finally crossed the pond to hit the West End in a big way. And with it, a star is born, one Leanne Jones, in the role of Tracy Turnblad

A HORSE STORY

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

Puppetry, lighting and sound come together to make this National Theatre production of War Horse, a ravishing live stage event. For those who want more meat on their animal fables, let them revisit Animal Farm.

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

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

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.

A FULL HOUSE
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.
