Art Nouveau: The Nature of Dreams - Review

Wednesday, August 12th 2020

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

After a disrupted opening in the spring, the Sainsbury Centre’s Art Nouveau exhibition has at last opened its doors to the public. Although, not in the way you’d probably expect.

Interviews

Peter Serafinowicz as Brian Butterfield

Monday, June 10th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

In the words of the famous Norwichonian Delia Smith “Let’s be having you come to see my show!" on the 16th June

Directors of Twelfth Night @ Maddermarket Theatre

Maddermarket Theatre

· What power do you believe theatre holds?---- It is live. Real people perform in front of real people. It is dynamic and present in the moment for both actors and audience. Therefore, every performance in a production is different.

Alasdair Beckett- King

Tuesday, April 30th 2024

Norwich Theatre Playhouse

Tomorrow, (30th April) Alasdair will be bringing ‘Nevermore’ to the Norwich Playhouse, promising audiences a night of wacky and witty comedy!

Theatre

Everybody's Talking About Jamie

Tuesday, June 25th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

Life-affirming, inclusive and diverse, and celebrating every type of friendship.

The 39 Steps

Wednesday, June 19th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

An hilarious comedy, made to look so easy. Pleasure and laughter all of the way.

Séance and Arcade from Darkfield

Thursday, June 6th 2024

The Forum

Séance, in common with all their productions, took place in complete darkness. The audience wear headphones and so experience the narrative almost entirely through sound. If that sounds too close to an audio book, then allow me to disabuse you of that notion.

Salt

Monday, May 20th 2024

Norwich Arts Centre

There was so much to admire in this bold production and one, let’s not forget, which filled the Arts Centre to capacity in the middle of the Norfolk and Norwich festival. I find it hard to believe that such an assured production is their first, and while 'Salt' is already a worthwhile contribution to the region's theatre, I’m convinced we can look forward to even greater things to come.

Northern Ballet - Romeo & Juliet

Wednesday, May 15th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

For a Romeo & Juliet with that extra rollercoaster ride of emotion and spectacle, look no further.

Drop the Dead Donkey

Wednesday, May 8th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

I dare say that my memory of the TV show itself is rose tinted, but if wallowing in nostalgia is an inexcusable crime then I plead guilty, as critical facilities crumbled in the face of a production that was simply, and unapologetically, silly good fun.

Musical

Grease - The Musical

Wednesday, June 5th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

'Grease' is still very much 'the word'.

Jesus Christ Superstar

Tuesday, April 9th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

There's no denying this was a musical and visual spectacular to satisfy the most jaded of palates. In writing this, I've had to wrestle with the jumble of songs now roaming my brain as conflicting ear worms do battle.

Calendar Girls - The Musical

Wednesday, April 3rd 2024

The tears and the laughter are still there, collectively delivered with true Yorkshire grit, and stoic Northern wit.

Shrek the Musical

Wednesday, March 27th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

A true gem of a show, faithful to the film’s roots, and yet still honouring its core message that it is OK to be different.

Bonnie & Clyde

Wednesday, March 13th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

A musical love story, doomed from the start, but with enough heart to steal you away until the final curtain.

The Wizard of Oz

Thursday, February 29th 2024

Come on Norwich, let’s be ‘aving you, and let’s be off to see the wizard, too.

Comedy

Brian Butterfield - The Call of Now

Monday, June 17th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

An evening that started with foolishness but ended in a Damascene moment of self-awareness

Stewart Lee

Monday, March 25th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

Throughout the near two-hour performance I’m rapt. I leave the Theatre Royal grateful to have witnessed such an assured, skilled and thoughtful act.

Ed Gamble

Monday, March 18th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

For all his ribald profanity, Gamble is an unusually old fashioned comic, building up mental pictures in the mind of an audience from a grain of truth, who then laugh loudest at situations that, but for the grace of God, go I.

Ross Noble Jibber Jabber Jamboree

Monday, March 11th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

Dispensing with the notion of a support act, we collectively jumped into the deep end, as he homed in on the brave souls on the front row. It's not unusual for a comic to break the ice with a bit of a chat with the audience before launching into the act, but it quickly became apparent this was the act. At times, he seemed less like a slick comic, and more like the funniest mate down the pub.

Tom Allen

Thursday, February 8th 2024

Norwich Theatre Royal

Tom Allen is the master of the pointed question, the cheeky put-down and the witty response

John Robins in Howl

Thursday, September 14th 2023

Norwich Theatre Playhouse

The promise of a five-star hit at Edinburgh is no guarantee of a good night out - the unique bubble of the Fringe can distort and filter perception - but this was one of most extraordinary, and genuinely unique, stand up shows I can recall seeing.

Talks

Killer Cults - Emma Kelly

Thursday, May 2nd 2024

EPIC Studios

Despite its sensational title, Killer Cults was a relatively sober examination of what makes a cult leader, and how a literally fatal combination of narcissism and psychopathy can lead to disaster.
