The Little Dog Laughed Review – Times Online

Benedict Nightingale reviews The Little Dog Laughed at the Garrick Theatre, London for the Times Online – awarding it a 3 star rating.

This is a Broadway comedy on the subject being in teh closet, wanting to come out and feeling that the public won’t allow it.

Tamsin Greig gives a terrific performance as Diane, a Californian agent, Harry Lloyd plays Alex, the improbably sophisticated rentboy.

To read the review go to The Little Dog Laughed Times Online Review.

This comedy is booking until Saturday 10th April 2010 with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 3.00pm and evening performances Monday to Saturday at 7.45pm – for more information and to check availability of tickets go to The Little Dog Laughed Theatre Tickets.

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof Review

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof at the Novello Theatre in London has received a 4* review from Paul Taylor in The Independent.

To see a black cat cross your path is a proverbial sign of good luck. The all-black production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the 1955 Tennessee Williams’s classic, certainly had good luck in spades on Broadway. It was a box-office smash, grossing more than $14m (

The Shawshank Redemption Review

Paul Taylor reviews The Shawshank Redemption for The Indepenent – and whilst he says that the transition from film to stage is not an easy one for this production, he has some good words to say.

In the role of Red, the excellent Reg E Cathey (of Wire fame) has Morgan Freeman’s twinkle and rumbling, gravelly strength. Whether leading the prisoners in song after the unlooked-for grace of a bottle of beer or bravely raising his arms to embrace an uncertain post-prison future, he holds the evening together with his moving, unforced dignity.

Dreamboats and Petticoats Review

In a review for the Independent in July of this year Michael Coveney writes

What can you possibly say about a show that defies analysis, scorns ideas and is so well packaged it would win prizes in a “most attractive parcel” competition? It’s just a pop concert with a token storyline of teenagers in love written by the much older gag-writers and sitcom specialists Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.

Read the full review here:- The Independent Review

Dreamboats and Petticoats was originally only due to run until September 12th 2009, but will now continue until 31st October 2009, so don’t miss your opportunity to see this “indie” show at the Savoy Theatre, London.
