BLOG : Review: After 2015’s Summer Run, Impossible Makes A Return To The West End

By Shanine Salmon
IMPOSSIBLE Friday 22 July 2016

Daring with enough cheese thrown in to make it a fun night Impossible returns to the West End with a variety of new magicians and daredevils. It is a variety of magic show rather than a magic or variety show but it takes a long while to build.

BLOG : Review: Impossible Is "Fast-paced, exciting, and confusing – perfect!"

By Harriet Wilson
IMPOSSIBLE Friday 22 July 2016

Impossible, currently playing a very limited run at the Noel Coward Theatre in London, is a superbly confusing display of illusions and tricks. Even for a bit of a cynic, like myself, the show is undeniably impressive. The great thing about Impossible is that it features all sorts of tricks – from cards, to mind-reading, to large stunts (and a lot of fire). So, whether there is a specific sort of “magic” that you particularly enjoy, or if you want to see a bit of everything and decide what you like later, this show will do the job. It is fast-paced, exciting, and confusing – perfect!

BLOG : Review: Exposure the Musical

By Shanine Salmon
Exposure The Musical Friday 22 July 2016

Overall: A clearly talented cast and crew but Exposure needs to feel less polished and a bit more fun. Exposure the Musical, at St James Theatre, is a look at the world of celebrity and morals. Our protagonist is Jimmy (David Albury), a young photographer haunted by his late father Ben’s (Kurt Kansley) talent and death in an unspecified foreign country as he reunited with his now famous popstar friend Pandora (Niamh Perry) and enters a Faustian pact with her manager Miles Mason (Michael Greco) to expose the modern seven deadly sins. It also looks at the art of photography and the exploitation is naturally causes, not just paparazzi but war photography.

BLOG : Review: Breakfast At Tiffany's Starring Pixie Lott

By Harriet Wilson
Breakfast At Tiffany's Monday 18 July 2016

Breakfast at Tiffany's is currently playing a limited twelve-week season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, in London. I had high expectations of the show, but I came away feeling underwhelmed. Whilst Pixie Lott, who stars as Holly Golightly, is superb and acts as well as she sings, the overall show drags. There are some really nice songs in the production (Moon River and People Will Say We're In Love being my two favourites) which help to pick up the pace at times, but there needs to be more of this. It seems to me that the show half-heartedly commits to being modern, and artistic, but has missed the mark by a fraction, and this creates quite a clash with the more classic tone of the play: it is almost stylistic, almost down-to-earth, almost modern, and almost quaint.

BLOG : REVIEW: Pixie Lott Glows In Breakfast At Tiffany’s But Leaves Audiences Indifferent

By Harriet Hards
Breakfast At Tiffany's Monday 18 July 2016

Pixie Lott steps into the iconic role of Holly Golightly, made famous by Audrey Hepburn, in a play adaptation of Truman Capote’s well-loved novella “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. The pop princess captures Holly’s surface level charm and shallowness; she swans around the stage with a playful elegance but ultimately fails to win the hearts of the audience with any of the complex emotional depth that the role requires. The production is aesthetically beautiful, the setting is 1940’s New York rather than the 60’s style of the film, and the costume design is stunning but the glitz and glamour doesn’t compensate for the real lack of depth to the central character.

BLOG : CHICAGO the musical

Chicago Wednesday 13 July 2016

After seeing Chicago last week I was satisfied with the performance, the dancers were amazing and the vocals were spot on.
