REVIEW: Sylvia, Cort Theatre ✭✭

Sylvia on Broadway

There are many ways to read the play, but the most obvious is probably correct. Sylvia is a metaphor for a trophy girlfriend; she is someone Greg can use to make himself feel better about himself, rather than actually work on his own complex personality issues. Someone he can effectively cheat on with in front of his wife’s eyes, that he can challenge her with, that he can use to bring his wife to heel.

REVIEW: Kinky Boots, Adelphi Theatre ✭✭✭✭

Kinky Booys at the Adelphi Theatre London

Lennox is sensational as Lauren, the whacky factory girl who flirts with and eventually wins the heart of the Boss. It is a comic tour-de-force from Lennox who doesn’t miss a trick, let a laugh opportunity pass or do anything at less than dynamite power levels. She completely steals every scene she is in and her hilarious solo, The History of Wrong Guys, is the first moment in the show then you think that Lauper might be up to the task of composing a Broadway score. Start engraving that Olivier Award now, because if there is any justice Lennox will be a shoe in.

REVIEW: On The Twentieth Century, American Airlines Theatre ✭✭✭✭✭

Kristen Chenoweth stars in On The Twentieth Century at the American Airlines Theatre

Whatever your thoughts about Chenoweth, her performance in this musical is that one-of-a-kind, flat-out unbelievably extraordinary star turns that leaves you breathless and stunned by the power, ferocity and magnetism of the delivery, both vocal and physical, of the performance, desperate to immediately see her do it all over again and certain, quite quite certain, that, no matter how long you live, you will never see anyone play that role like that again.
