"With its infectious mix of chart-topping tracks, explosive dance routines, and that lift, 'Dirty Dancing' at the Dominion Theatre is a joyous musical tonic. You’ll wish you could book a one-way trip to Kellerman’s." Full Review

ABBA Voyage
Stratford
London Theatre

"When there’s a chance to see ABBA 'live' and experience the musical euphoria of generations past, it’s easy to forgive any odd appearances. There’s no denying that the Swedish superstars are in the room." Full Review

London Theatre

"When the audience holler, clap, and cheer their way through two and a half hours of unadultered joy, it doesn't matter if the story could actually be told in 10 minutes; this lavish pantomime delivers the goods." Full Review

The Doctor
West End
London Theatre

"'The Doctor' sits on a wider table allowing more audiences to understand what makes a person. The Doctor is the dramatic equivalent of a scientific breakthrough." Full Review

London Theatre

"There's no better escape than 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. ... The winter blast invites audiences into a magical Narnia world where everything feels a little bit more beautiful than reality." Full Review

London Theatre

Praise must go to Natalie Gallacher as casting director, as the Legally Blonde cast reflect a diverse society. Lauren Drew stands out as Brooke Wyndham. This Legally Blonde is an assured and snappy production which fits slap-bang into the present day. Full Review

London Theatre

for a previous production But at the moment, But I’m A Cheerleader is in its tricky pubescent period. There’s a nugget of musical theatre gold at its core, it just needs to mature and hit adulthood to finally blossom. Full Review

London Theatre

The joy of pantomime can come in the mistakes, and with no room for error, Pantoland is too pristine for its own good. Even so, and to change a Donny Osmond lyric, I love theatre for a reason, let the reason be pantomime. Full Review

London Theatre

The stage show captures this zingy wackiness, and Michael Fentiman's direction captures the zeitgeist of a nation locked down for nearly 18 months who just want to laugh at something stupid. Full Review

The Great Gatsby
Westminster
London Theatre

for a previous production Everything you’d expect from a show set in the 1920s is there: the Charleston, the bob hair cuts, the constant talk about motor cars. But it’s missing the exorbitant lavishness that you get from the original.' Full Review

London Theatre

While Horrible Histories might tell silly stories in a slapstick fashion and a few crass jokes here and there, the show’s quintessential British humour left me smiling from ear to ear... Full Review

London Theatre

for a previous production The musical accompaniments led by MD Duncan Walsh Atkins really shine. Seamlessly tying the action on stage to what the audience wanted, the musicians were able to bring the show to a blazing finish. Full Review

Cirque du Soleil - Kurios
South Kensington
London Theatre

"In this cabinet of curiosities, acts defy human boundaries and ask what we can achieve when we let our futures guide us. For ‘Cirque du Soleil’s Kurios,’ the future is now, and after the pandemic, it’s brighter than ever." Full Review

London Theatre

"As a London-based woman in my mid-20s, this play speaks to me…If there's one woman I want telling this type of story in the West End right now, then it's Liz Kingsman.” Full Review

London Theatre

"If you’re looking to see Elf because you enjoy the film, you'll walk away with pep in your step.Buddy the Elf is still the Christmas hero we need, and if you still believe, then Santa may fly in his sleigh." Full Review

London Theatre

" 'All of Us' highlights moments that an able-bodied person may never see. ... Prescribe this play as a must-watch for our current government." Full Review

London Theatre

Mad House packs dozens of metaphorical and word-play punches, thanks to Rebeck's cutting script and Moritz von Stuelpnagel directing an authentic family drama. David Harbour delivers a commanding performance. Full Review

London Theatre

Ivo van Hove directs the two-time Olivier-winning actress in this heartwrenching monodrama, and Wilson’s captivating performance soars in a relevant isolation monologue. Full Review

Bring It On
Waterloo
London Theatre

Forget festive cheer this winter, Bring It On puts cheer sport firmly on London’s map, and I defy anyone to leave Bring It On without a big smile. Full Review

London Theatre

The reliance on phone conversations to convey the storytelling can become frustrating, diluting the show’s unpredictability. But these characters ... wear their hearts on their sleeves and just want to do good. You’ll wish you could join them in their hijinks. Full Review

Billionaire Boy
West End
London Theatre

A storybook written with a younger generation in mind isn’t going to enthrall [adults]. But its continual playing up to pejorative, dated stereotypes cheapens the laughter. It needs more interaction, smiles, and lessons that have 2021 in mind. Full Review

London Theatre

Tamsin Greig and Maxine Peake give 'acting masterclasses' in Talking Heads...Multiple standing ovations and rapturous applause around the auditorium spoke for themselves.' Full Review

London Theatre

Now bookmarked into the history of the West End’s pages, the show is a wholesome bundle of joy, neatly tied with vibrant costumes, puppets and music to create a comforting musical package that Beatrix Potter herself would have been proud of. Full Review
