Oklahoma! (London)
Southwark
London Theatre

Anoushka Lucas is stoic and alluring as Laurey, a perfect foil for the swirl of male energy around her. Arthur Darvill puts an Elvis Presley spin on Curly, and rather than go for broad strokes bully, he’s more calculated. It seems like a cliché to say that this show couldn’t be more timely.

London Theatre

Harington is charismatic as the title character, making this distressed character and unsympathetic king likable...Harington takes “Harry” from his boyish partying days into his power-hungry battle cries seamlessly, and there are few actors who can deliver a Shakespearean line as well as he. Full Review

London Theatre

Timbers is not afraid to use every tool in his directing arsenal with this self-aware, but not self-conscious, amalgamation of vintage and modern, classic and contemporary. Every creative team member is clearly working overtime to deliver excellence and opulence. Full Review

Mum
Soho
London Theatre

[Morgan Lloyd] Malcolm doesn’t hold anything back in this raw script about a new mother navigating life with an infant who doesn’t sleep, a prying mother-in-law, and postpartum depression. Full Review

London Theatre

And Carrie Hope Fletcher fits into this role as if it was made for her, which it seems to have been. Her grunge-punk princess is more Olivia Rodrigo than Disney, and Fletcher excels equally on emotional ballads and angry duets. Full Review

London Theatre

for a previous production One of the things I appreciated most of Wilkin’s rich tale is that Myah is still very much a work in progress at the end. She does not “find herself” and she is still on her journey to self discovery, a journey that has no end point onstage or in life. Full Review

Walden
West End
London Theatre

Walden shows a lot of promise for a new writer on the scene, as this marks Berryman’s debut, and I’m excited to see what she does next and how she grows as a storyteller from here. Full Review

London Theatre

for a previous production The entire experience feels far more cinematic than theatrical, and that transfers a different kind of spectacle. Full Review

Southern Comfort
East Village
Backstage

for a previous production "The story of a community of transgender individuals in Georgia is hard to hear at times. The complicated characters evoke sympathy, but they never get beyond their sexual identity. As they continually beg for acceptance, their plea starts to sound like a broken record. The story isn't uninteresting, though." Full Review

Cock (London)
West End
London Theatre

There are glimpses of pure passion and electricity, but there are also some overdone and tired tropes. However, watching COCK illustrates how far we’ve come in society’s road to acceptance — and how far we still have to go. Full Review

London Theatre

Overall, this production has a bit of an identity crisis. While it’s refreshing to enjoy and even laugh at such a dismal story, when the play does try to convey gravitas, the moment loses some of its credibility...Rice provides a fresh take on the story that has the potential to entice a few lost readers.

London Theatre

The Kit Kat Club is the ultimate escape. After a difficult or even ordinary day, the fanfare, glitz, and glamour feel like a portal to another time, where you’ll be greeted with complimentary schnapps, dancing chorus members, and a lascivious pre-show smorgasbord. Full Review

SIX (Broadway)
Midtown W
New York Theatre Guide

"The show itself is a retro-mashup with Gabrielle Slade’s bedazzled costumes featuring Reformation-inspired silhouettes; Carrie-Anne Ingrouille’s choreography showcases Tudor-meets-pop moves; and Emma Bailey’s scenery and Tim Deiling’s lighting feels like what a royal ballroom might look like in a techno disco. Ultimately, the queens’ own stories of overcoming struggles and the show’s circuitous journey to Broadway are also beacons for the power of positivity, perseverance, and coming tog... Full Review

London Theatre

Overall, the production is chaotic, jubilant, and fun, which is exactly what you want from a Shakespeare comedy...Like the music, the production is a bit of a melting pot with something for everyone: romance, comedy, even a bit of violence. Full Review

London Theatre

Lee-Jones does not shy away from any difficult topics, and digs into the nuance of the complicated culture we find ourselves in. Full Review

London Theatre

Trigg brings an endlessly funny and upbeat spirit to Juno’s journey, which is matched by her hot pink blazer and unwavering smile. She writes in a poetic style, as if delivering musical stanzas about everything... Full Review

Backstage

for a previous production "The jukebox musical is usually a cop-out. "Sistas: The Musical," a touching though reductive chronicle of black female America, is a victim of this phenomenon. With songs once sung by artists from Billie Holiday to Beyoncé, the production charms with its voices but forgoes depth and focus in an attempt to cover too much ground." Full Review
