Simon Evans’ production of Bug is a visceral and immersive piece, which lives up to Tracey Letts’ excellent script. Kate Fleetwood and James Norton deliver deeply moving performances, complimented by a strong supporting cast and sublime set, lighting and sound design. It is a brilliantly judged production, which will set your pulse racing, and linger long in the memory.

REVIEW: High Society, Old Vic Theatre ✭✭✭

High Society at the Old Vic Theatre

The first fifteen minutes or so of Act Two are as good as, if not the equal of, any fifteen minutes of any musical currently playing on the West End (the final fifteen minutes of both of Gypsy’s acts excluded). In the main, this is down to three things: superb orchestrations (Chris Walker), fantastic musicianship (Theo Jamieson, Joe Stilgoe and a red hot band) and inspired, creative choreography (Nathan M Wright). Together, these three magical elements work musical theatre alchemy, and the cast go along with it infectiously, without restraint.
