King’s Theatre

Avenue Q

Avenue Q

★★★★☆ City slickest:

What if Sesame Street got real? If the lessons it taught weren’t aimed at kids, but young adults? What if decidedly Muppety creatures…. swore? Avenue Q at the King’s Theatre has the answers.

The Worst Witch

The Worst Witch

★★★★☆    Magical:

The joy and energy that low-budget children’s theatre often possesses can sometimes be dissipated when a comparatively large budget comes in, with a corresponding desire to please larger audiences. This is emphatically not the case with the touring production of The Worst Witch, which is high-octane, clever and extremely enjoyable.

The Verdict

The Verdict

★★★★☆    Engrossing:

It’s no trial watching this stage version of the classic film The Verdict at the King’s. In fact, it’s a real pleasure seeing washed-up Boston lawyer Frank Galvin get his mojo back as he takes on a case of alleged medical malpractice.

★★★☆☆ Glossy:

My Fair Lady

My Fair Lady

★★★★☆ Loverly:

Southern Light Opera’s My Fair Lady at the King’s is a sumptuously staged production. It also boasts a truly outstanding central performance; if the rest is a little overshadowed as a result, it is nevertheless highly impressive.
