Legally Blonde – The Musical

Legally Blonde – The Musical

★★★★☆    Absolutely Fabulous:

Big and vibrant, the Beyond Broadway Experience’s summer school production of Legally Blonde the Musical, at the King’s to Saturday, is a glorious mix of huge ensemble numbers and strong solo performances.

★★★★☆ Half-step Toodeloo:

Peppered with emotion and fizzing with energy, the touring production of Amélie the Musical – at the King’s to Saturday – is the sort of treat which gives musical theatre a good name.

Avenue Q

Avenue Q

★★★★☆ City slickest:

What if Sesame Street got real? If the lessons it taught weren’t aimed at kids, but young adults? What if decidedly Muppety creatures…. swore? Avenue Q at the King’s Theatre has the answers.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

There are plenty of laughs to be had in the touring Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the King’s. There are also a couple of gasp-inducing coups de theatre.

The Worst Witch

The Worst Witch

★★★★☆    Magical:

The joy and energy that low-budget children’s theatre often possesses can sometimes be dissipated when a comparatively large budget comes in, with a corresponding desire to please larger audiences. This is emphatically not the case with the touring production of The Worst Witch, which is high-octane, clever and extremely enjoyable.

The Verdict

The Verdict

★★★★☆    Engrossing:

It’s no trial watching this stage version of the classic film The Verdict at the King’s. In fact, it’s a real pleasure seeing washed-up Boston lawyer Frank Galvin get his mojo back as he takes on a case of alleged medical malpractice.
