In Profile – The Apollo Theatre

Halfway between Regent Street and Charring Cross Road is the Apollo Theatre. It is one of London’s oldest West End theatres. Rising up before the Palladium and the Coliseum – its Edwardian era cousins – the Apollo is much smaller than either of them. It only seats 796 patrons. Oh! Please don’t confuse it with the Apollo Victoria Theatre near Victoria Station. [More]

In Profile - London Coliseum

What an address! The London Coliseum is located in St. Martin’s Lane in the heart of London. It is a mere 100 metres from Trafalgar Square.

However the jaw was in plenty of action after my first surprise evaporated and was replaced with unabashed laughter and a few guffaws. [More]

Some Small Love Story

It is not very often that a production from Edinburgh’s Fringe comes down the turnpike (as the Americans would say) to survive and do well in London’s West End. But Some Small Love Story does just that. [More]

Hamlet at Bloomsbury Theatre

The Prince of Denmark is back. In tights! Pirouetting and dancing his way across stage while he contemplates that immortal concept, ‘To be, or not to be.’ Only this time it is to music. Makes you wonder? Would Shakespeare be shaking his head in poets’ corner in disbelief while muttering to his good friend, ‘There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.’ [More]

War Horse at New London Theatre

The stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s novel is probably one of most spectacular and heart-warming productions to hit the London theatre scene. Adapted by Nick Stafford and brilliantly supported by the Handspring Puppet Company, this story really comes alive – visually – on the stage. [More]

Third Finger, Left Hand

Third Finger, Left Hand first saw the light of the stage at the Edinburgh Fringe some years ago. It has had sufficient qualities, good press and public interest to make its way to London and onto the stage of Trafalgar Studios. [More]
