Feature: November round-up

Star of the Month
Lizzy Connolly

This month Lizzy Connolly has starred in not one but two off-West End musicals! She gave the performance of the night in Xanadu at the Southwark Playhouse before proving herself to be one of the finest comedic actors working in musical theatre in Jest End at the Waterloo East Theatre. Having made her West End debut last year in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Connolly continues to steal the spotlight in show after show. She is certainly one worth keeping an eye on! Read our 2014 interview with Lizzy.

Show of the Month
The Homecoming at Trafalgar Studios

The Homecoming is, without doubt, my favourite of Jamie Lloyd's Trafalgar productions. The piece hit me with a breath of fresh air - it is so encouraging to see a reimagined interpretation of Pinter's hard-hitting masterpiece being staged with such flair, identity and bravery. I was enthralled. We've seen a variety of plays open their doors to West End audiences in recent months, but nothing as bold or dangerous as The Homecoming. It is a piece of theatre worth getting excited about. Read our full 5* review of The Homecoming.
