Cinderella

Cinderella

★★★★☆ Still Sparkling:

This year’s King’s pantomime – Cinderella – is a more plot-driven and less reliant on effects than many of recent years. It also lacks some of the more interactive elements of panto, but for sheer fun and laughter it scores very highly indeed.

Duet For One

Duet For One

★★★☆☆   Solid:

Thought-provoking and icily emotional, Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s version of Duet For One at the King’s until Saturday is wonderfully acted but never really takes flight.

The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner

★★★★☆     Emotional:

Raw and powerful, the stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s best-selling novel The Kite Runner has lost none of its edge as it returns to the King’s for a week-long run, three years after it was last here.

A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire

★★☆☆☆      Underwhelming:

Worthy but earthbound, Rapture Theatre’s touring production of A Streetcar Named Desire at the King’s never really convinces.
