Titanic the Musical

★★★★☆    Tense and satisfying:

Tragic in a way that only stories of real life events can be, there is no small amount of hubris on display in this powerful touring production of Titanic the Musical which is at the Playhouse to Saturday.

★★★★★   What’s it all about, Elphie?

It’s been to Edinburgh a few times, but this latest touring version of Wicked drops in on the Playhouse with the power of a flying farmhouse.

Crazy for You Youth Review 3

★★★☆☆   A Gersh-winning performance:

Carried by a multitalented cast and top-notch comedic timing, the Watermill Theatre’s Production of Crazy for You delivers plenty of laughs for the whole family, but lacks emotional intelligence.

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.

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.
