Theatre Review | OEDIPUS | NT Olivier
Entering the Olivier auditorium of London’s National Theatre is like entering an ancient site of reverence and monumental worship. A vast burnished-bronze gateway supports two massive doors which dominate the space. These are the famous gates of Thebes, site of Oedipus’s skilful defeat of the monstrous Sphinx which terrorized the city with her fatal riddles. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Theatre Review | IN THE RED AND BROWN WATER | Young Vic
Subtitled ‘a fast and loose play’, Tarell Alvin McCraney’s In the Red and Brown Water is just that, both vibrant and cool and a work that young adult audiences will adore. The Young Vic is the perfect home for it. It is the second part of this acclaimed young American playwright’s Brother/Sister trilogy, the first being The Brothers Size, which played to great acclaim at the same venue this time last year. Claire Ingrams [more]

Theatre Review | THE WOMAN HATER | Orange Tree Theatre
Frances Burney's first play, The Witlings, was read by her father, the famous music historian Dr Charles Burney, to an assembled group of family and close friends. His and his friend Samuel Crisp's reaction to the satire was to dissuade her from allowing the play to be produced, despite the fact that Sheridan was standing by to do just that. She was 27 and already had published her witty novel Evelina with her father's help, one year previously in 1778. Joanna Bacon [more]

With over fifty years of directing experience, Mike Alfreds has developed a specific way of working in the rehearsal room. In this illuminating and inspiring book for actors and directors alike, Alfreds shares his methodology and process, based in rich experience and acute observation of actors at work (and play). Rhona Foulis [more]

Obituary | PAT KIRKWOOD
Pat Kirkwood was one of the West End's greatest musical comedy stars. Her career spanned 60 years and she originated the leading roles in musicals written by Noël Coward, Cole Porter and Leonard Bernstein.

Theatre Review | MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING | NT Olivier
This is a lovely, exquisitely judged production by Nick Hytner, which manages to convey both the humour and the underlying sadness beneath the play's surface. Harriet Davis [more]

Christmas Theatre Review | TINTIN | Playhouse Theatre
The Playhouse Theatre is the venue for the brief return of the intrepid boy reporter and his dog Snowy in this lauded production, directed by Rufus Norris and adapted by David Greig from what is generally thought to be Hergé's masterpiece, Tintin In Tibet. Claire Ingrams [more]

Christmas Theatre Review | MATTHEW BOURNE'S NUTCRACKER! | Sadler's Wells Theatre [tour]
At the end of an hour and 55 minutes (including a 20-minute interval) the capacity audience at Sadler's Wells gave a very warm welcome to this revival of Matthew Bourne's version of The Nutcracker. If your children are young and uncritical they will enjoy this sugar-pink performance for the good natured entertainment it sets out to be. But it is not what Matthew Bourne seems to claim for it. Norman Tozer [more]

Theatre Review | THE BITTER TEARS OF PETRA VON KANT | Southwark Playhouse
In the cold underbelly of London Bridge, an oneiric pattern of mother-daughter disassociation and emotional decline is being played out each night to a small, blanketed audience. The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant has been beautifully retranslated by David Tushingham, and in the hands of The Oslo Group, here is a play where the real and the surreal meld as seamlessly as in dreams and nightmares. Belinda Williams [more]

Feature | IMMEASURABLE OUTCOMES
I'll save R&V readers the trouble of pointing out what I don't know. I don't know economics. I don't know the principles or the politics of arts funding, either in Britain or in the US, where I am from. I am as unsure of the geography of the West End and Everywhere Else as I am of the boundaries of Broadway/Off-Broadway, and Off-off…, and I have only the most rudimentary understanding of subsidized vs. non-subsidized theatres. Linda Wyman [more]
