Crazy for You Youth Review 1

Crazy for You Youth Review 1

★★★☆☆   Timeless yet modern:

Terrifically timed tapping toes and the pipes to deliver incredible vocals retell a love story from the Wild West, but what seems to be missing is true character development.

Crazy for You

Crazy for You

★★★☆☆    Song and dance:

Big tap dance routines and even bigger set pieces dominate the Watermill Theatre’s touring production of Crazy for You at the Playhouse until Saturday, but at the expense of the chemistry in the big romances of the show.

PPP: McGonagall’s Chronicles

PPP: McGonagall’s Chronicles

★★★★☆    Cheerful complexity:

Gary McNair’s McGonagall’s Chronicles, the first in the new series of A Play, A Pie and a Pint at the Traverse, is a winningly daffy confection. While it may not treat its subject entirely fairly, it does at least show him unusual sympathy.

Justin’s Band

Justin’s Band

★★★☆☆    Tumbled:

Love him or loathe him there is no mistaking Justin Fletcher. As one of the BBC’s top children’s TV presenters Fletcher – aka Mr Tumble – is one of the most recognisable faces in the land.

The Case of the Frightened Lady

The Case of the Frightened Lady

★★☆☆☆   Static:

Reliable performances by a host of crowd-pleasing big TV names cannot quite redeem the disappointing script of The Case of the Frightened Lady.

Travels With My Aunt

Travels With My Aunt

★★★★☆ Inventive:

There is a beautiful comic rhythm to Arkle’s Travels With My Aunt at the Assembly Roxy, coupled with an almost boundless invention in its staging, that is very pleasing indeed.

HMS Pinafore

★★★★☆   Hits the heights:
