Star of the Month

Michael Urie's performance in Buyer and Cellar at the Menier Chocolate Factory is nothing short of stellar. The one-man play follows an out-of-work LA actor who gets a job in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu basement where she has created her very own private shopping mall. Urie's comic timing is impeccable. He builds a strong relationship with the audience, telling the story tremendously. Read my interview with Urie here.

Hitting me with a breath of fresh air, when I saw The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 and ¾ at the Leicester Curve Theatre my faith in new British musical theatre was restored. The piece is quirky and has a strong identity and relevance. I'm sure this isn't the last we'll hear of this inspiring, well-crafted new British musical! Read my full 4* review here.
