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.

Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk

★★★★☆ Raucous:
The celebrated trio of Allan Stewart, Grant Stott and Andy Gray are front and centre in this year’s King’s pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk – a production that is low on storyline but high on childlike fun and a headlong, effervescent energy.

Broad, cheeky and deceptively carefully crafted, Grant Stott’s solo show Tales From Behind the Mic is a great success.

Willie and Sebastian

Willie and Sebastian

✭✭✭✭✩ Immoral compass:
Foul-mouthed and funny, Willie and Sebastian is far removed from what might be expected of the established double act of Andy Gray and Grant Stott. Nevertheless it provides an entertaining hour, with Gray in particular close to his very best.
