King’s Theatre

The Night Watch

The Night Watch

★★★☆☆ Uneasy retelling:

The touring adaptation at the King’s of The Night Watch, the best-selling novel by Sarah Waters, has a great deal of emotional clarity, but little in the way of dramatic power.

An Inspector Calls

An Inspector Calls

★★★★☆    Worryingly compelling:

The revival of a much-garlanded take on J.B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls at the King’s is wonderfully staged, relevant and more than a little troubling.

A Woman of No Importance

★★★☆☆  Curiosity value:

A Woman of No Importance, Classic Spring Company’s touring production at the King’s, is an accomplished piece of theatre whose stately nature contains little in the way of excitement.

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.
