Twelfth Night

★★★★☆ Kaleidoscopic:

Twelfth Night

★★★☆☆  Rumbustious jollity:

Charging at Shakespeare at full speed and with all comic guns blazing, Some Kind of Theatre’s production of Twelfth Night at Paradise in the Vault will win no prizes for subtlety but should please a wide audience.

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.
