Ghost The Musical

★★★★☆ Believable:

A refreshingly strong turn from Rebekah Lowings ensures that the latest touring production of Ghost The Musical is alive and vibrant at the Festival Theatre, despite the show’s cloying sentimentality.

Rain Man

Rain Man

★★☆☆☆ Clunky:

There are probably enough fans of the original movie to sustain The Classic Screen to Stage Company’s touring version of Rain Man, at the King’s until Saturday. However, as a piece of theatre it never makes a successful case for itself.

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.
