Review: Once (Touring)

Monday 3rd February at The Grand Opera House, York. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It takes all of a few mere minutes for this production to show us exactly why it has snapped up so many awards; from the rousing, foot stomping pre-curtain act delivered as the audience arrive to the first full pelt number from our lead, we...

Review: What’s in a Name? (Touring)

Wednesday 9th October 2019 at The Grand Opera House, York. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Family and friends come together for an evening of food, chat and liquor...what could possibly go wrong? A surprising and thoroughly entertaining array of things as it happens. Matthieu Delaporte and Alexander De La Patellière’s hit comedy (translated and adapted by Jeremy Sams) takes...

Review: Thriller Live (Touring)

Monday 8th July 2019 at the Grand Opera House, York. ⭐️⭐️ Thriller Live commendably tries a different tack when it comes to celebrating its source material. Thanks to creator and executive director Adrian Grant, this is no jukebox musical with loose narrative thrown in. Nor is it a jukebox musical with a whackily entertaining plot... Continue Reading →

Review: Dracula: The Bloody Truth (Tour)

Saturday 29th September 2018 at The Grand Theatre and Opera House, York. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Le Navet Bete’s Dracula the Bloody Truth is stupendously and proudly ridiculous. An homage to everything silly and a celebration of everything remotely farcical about melodramatic nineteenth century thrillers, its a non-stop display of fast-paced fun. Although it sells itself as a... Continue Reading →

Review: Hairspray (Tour)

Monday 16th July 2018 at the Grand Opera House, York. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I left the theatre after Hairspray wanting to turn around and go straight back in again. With book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan and a lucrative history of successes, Hairspray remains a giant in the musical theatre world. It’s a truly special piece... Continue Reading →

Review: Tango Moderno (Touring)

Tuesday 10th April 2018 at the Grand Theatre and Opera House Leeds. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Flavia Cacace and Vincent Simone light up the stage in Tango Moderno like two gorgeously inextinguishable flames on a mission to enlighten the masses in the beauty of ‘the dance of love’.
