The King and I was last seen at the London Palladium in 2000, with Elaine Paige as Anna, the governess to the children of the King Siam in the late 19th Century. Anna and the King form a relationship marked by conflict and a love that neither will admit. The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical premiered on Broadway in March 1951 at the St James Theatre, there are rumours that the production will return to the Palladium in 2018.

The Peacock Theatre on Charing Cross Road is the perfect venue for the dark nights drawing in. Tucked away and intimate, it is hosting the devilishly good The Exorcist, fresh from a run at the Birmingham Rep.  It has quite the cast too, the Demon being voiced by Sir Ian McKellen, Adam Garcia and Peter Bowles in the roles of the Fathers, Jenny Seagrove as the mother and, of course, Claire Louise Connelly as Regan.

Lies. Greed. Corruption. It’s all business as usual for a limited 14 weeks at London’s Playhouse Theatre. Glengarry Glen Ross is the timeless Mamet drama that spawned the 1992 American classic film directed by Sam Yates. It takes place in Chicago, focusing on four alpha- male salesmen who are willing to go to any length to get real estate sales. It’s a high-stakes, cutthroat competition, with a fight to the end. But how far are they willing to go to close the most deals and get ahead of the other?
