Art

Art

★★★★☆ Sparkling:

Art, at the King’s until Saturday, is everything a high-profile touring show should be – a carefully thought out, well-directed production of a hit play featuring a big-name cast at the top of their game.

Dear Brutus

Dear Brutus

★★★★☆ Old world charm:

Threepenny Theatricals’ Dear Brutus at the Church Hill is a resolutely odd piece, hugely uneven in tone, but discharged with such grace and skill that is compulsively watchable.

The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven

The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven

★★★★★ Sublime:

Forget any controversy linked to The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven. It should be judged purely as a theatrical experience. On those terms, it is moving, profound and quite brilliantly executed.

Poggle

★★★★★ Disarmingly charming:

There is real delight for pre-school kids to be had at the Studio of the Festival Theatre this Christmas, as the clever and playful Poggle is revived by Barrowland Ballet.

Rhinoceros

Rhinoceros

★★★☆☆ Interactive:

Theatre Paradok’s interpretation of Eugene Ionesco’s absurdist Rhinoceros at the Assembly Roxy is a bold attempt to bring the text into a modern setting.
