Saturday 5th April 2008
Feature | DISCIPLES OF SHAKESPEARE
As the Royal Shakespeare Company's Histories Cycle finally hits town, splendidly housed in the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm, to a run which has already sold out before we even arrived, it might be considered a proper time to reflect on its two-and-a-half-year journey. Miles Richardson [more]

 

Friday 4th April 2008
Interview | GUY RETALLACK | Micky Salberg's Crystal Ballroom Dance Band
Director Guy Retallack's enthusiastic description of the new play by Ade Morris at the Watermill Theatre, Micky Salberg's Crystal Ballroom Dance Band, is infectious. It sounds like the perfect show to entertain us all, no matter what our likes and dislikes. "It is, it's a little gem, I think," says Guy, "that's how I would describe it, it's a real jewel of a play." Sarah Vernon [more]

Theatre Review | MOLORA | The Farber Foundry @ Oxford Playhouse [tour]
A woman, dressed in rough clothes and a knitted shawl, pulls a black tarpaulin away to reveal a small stage with a burial mound in the centre. The proscenium arch of the Playhouse has been transformed with scaffolding and plastic chairs. Two tables sit at the corners of the stage, with microphones. As the woman sings, others join, weaving in from the audience to take their seats, chanting eerily. Jason Millar [more]

 

Friday 4th April 2008
Feature | ANOTHER LETTER FROM SLOVENIA
And so we marched through another week of Look Back in Anger in the Slovenian battlefields (quaintly known as classrooms and gyms) and a few deepening cracks were revealed. Gregory Cox [more]

 

Thursday 3rd April 2008
Theatre Review | WEDDING DAY AT THE CRO-MAGNONS | Soho Theatre
A neat little under-furnished room with a Mediterranean-styled balcony, set in false perspective on a rake: we seem all set for a happy comedy, perhaps some modern-dress Goldoni except there is a big shell hole in one wall. This is Lebanon in the midst of civil war, with snipers in the streets and missiles being launched so frequently that a teenager can name the exact type from the sound it makes in flight and the type of detonation. Howard Loxton [more]

Thursday 3rd April 2008
Theatre Review | BLACKBIRD | Rose Theatre, Kingston [tour]
Written by Scottish playwright David Harrower and initially premiered at the 2005 Edinburgh International Festival in an acclaimed production directed by Peter Stein, Blackbird was a big hit and swiftly winged its way to the West End. If you saw it, you will not have forgotten it. Claire Ingrams [more]

 

Thursday 3rd April 2008
Theatre Review | JINGO | Primavera Productions @ Finborough Theatre
The Finborough Theatre seldom disappoints but I left after this performance bemused. I didn't understand the play and for the last 20 minutes I was bored. I noticed, too, that the attentive audience paused before it applauded at the end. If the message doesn't come across whose problem is it? Norman Tozer [more]

 

Thursday 3rd April 2008
Press Release | News | COMING SOON TO A STAGE NEAR YOU

Wednesday 2nd April 2008
Theatre Review | LUNCH WITH MARLENE | New End Theatre
Whenever I visit the V&A I always, and I do mean always, have to walk round my favourite section of the Museum. It is the part that houses the wayward children of any museum's collection; the Fakes, Forgeries and Plaster Cast copies of ancient originals. Jack Hughes [more]

 

Wednesday 2nd April 2008
News | Feature | WINING & DINING IN THE GRAND SALOON: State of the Nation
April 1st and off to Drury Lane, as Samuel Pepys would have said not for a racy play, however, but for the award ceremony for the Society for Theatre Research's Theatre Book Prize in the lovely, very red, Grand Saloon. With Ronnie Wood's painting of The Ivy in-crowd gazing down upon us, we drank wine, chatted and perused the books in the running. Claire Ingrams [more]

 

Tuesday 1st April 2008

Tuesday 1st April 2008
Book Review | ONE NIGHT STANDS by Michael Billington | pub. Nick Hern Books
There are two great pleasures to be had from reading Michael Billington's first collection of theatre criticism, One Night Stands 1971-1991. The first, assuming you are old enough to have been going to plays in the Seventies, is to be reminded of some wonderful, occasionally mind-blowing, evenings in the theatre. Claire Ingrams [more]

 

Tuesday 1st April 2008
