Brave Macbeth

Brave Macbeth

★★★★☆ Enjoyably educational:

Brave Macbeth, presented by Gilded Balloon in the Rose Theatre Basement, is a beautifully pitched children’s musical combining the Scottish Play with tunes, humour and shameless messing about.

Oliver!

Oliver!

★★☆☆☆ Disconnected:
A pair of very fine interpretations, backed by a company intent on performing at the peak of their abilities mark out an Oliver! which aims high but suffers from the constraints of its own conceit.

Lysistrata

Lysistrata

★★★★☆ Ebullient energy:
Fizzing with righteous anger and frothing with near-the-knuckle humour, the Attic Collective’s Lysistrata at the King’s is a breath of fresh air and an undeniable statement of intent.
