Review: Once – New Wolsey Theatre

Basically this is a story of boy meets girl and they both fall in love, but each has commitments, or so they think, elsewhere, so maybe it’s a case of another time and another place who knows what could have been. And basically that is the production, it’s a simple tale and never really gets

Review: An Officer and a Gentleman

It’s back to the 80s at the Ipswich Regent as a brand new musical, An Officer and a Gentleman, bursts onto the stage. Full of classic 80s tunes this is one show not to miss, as the classic chick flick from 1982 is brought back to life in this brilliant show. Set in the early

Review: Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing is one of the Bard’s best comedies, but even with a good story how many times can you watch the same old play (and as it was written in 1598 it is old!)? We know the story of two couples, the first head over heels in love with one another, until

The Ipswich Gang Show is back this week and celebrating it’s 80th Anniversary…. it might have been going for 80 years but it’s certainly no dinosaur.

Review: Cinderella, Company of 4

Cinderella shall go to the ball! Oh no she shan’t, ohhh, oh yes she shall! The Company of Four’s Traditional Family Pantomime is a must see, with tunes from Disney’s Tangled to Back Street Boys and The Drifters, there’s a song for everyone in the audience and there wasn’t a toe not tapping at some

Review: Hairspray – The Apex

Question: When is an am-dram musical as good as a professional production? Answer: When it’s performed by The CTC. I cannot praise The CTC enough the attention to perfection is up there with many a West End production. Last year’s offering over the Christmas/New Year period was Cats which was breath-taking…. so how do you
