Milked

Walker Theatre

17/March/2015

 

Milked, from the pen of Simon Longman and performed by our own local company, Pentabus; bravely explores the lot of two twenty-somethings stuck in in rural surroundings.

The play ran for a straight 67 minutes and demonstrates pure excellence in the art of theatre.

So many...

Chicken Pox Fox

Donna Disco

Walker Theatre

5/March/2015

When one attends a play with little or no information other than what is written in the Theatre Severn handbook, it is always quite natural to feel a little trepidation. Sometimes it is well founded and one can be trapped in a disastrous piece...

One Man Breaking Bad

Theatre Severn

2nd/March/2015

An impressive sized audience awaited for Miles Allen to take the to the stage to cook up his one man parody to one of the greatest  TV shows to come out of America, “Breaking Bad.”

A lot were there to answer their own curiosity as to how one man can do all sixty episodes, alone in little over an hour. The answer...

Women on Top

Theatre  On The Steps

Bridgnorth.

28/2 /15

 

It isn’t a lot that gets Loveshrewsbury.com to leave its home. But every now and again if there is something worth seeing it does no harm. Gill Jordan’s one woman show, “Women on Top.” proved to be one such show.

Gill shot to fame in the West midlands when she introduced her character, house...

Vamos Theatre

Nursing Lives

24/25 February 2015

It was a packed Walker Theatre that eagerly awaited the return of Vamos Theatre. After conquering Shrewsbury with their masked performance, “ Finding Joy,” it was really no surprise to see so many people had decided that a night in front of the TV lost out completely to the return of this much loved company.

It is a...

Magical Mozart by Candle light

Theatre Severn

22/February/2015

I have to tell you whilst waiting in my seat for the show to begin, I heard the funniest thing. As I watched and counted heads, the stalls filled up with anticipatory theatre-goers. “You just breathed on my arm,” I heard a disgruntled woman declare to who I imagined was her husband. ” I didn’t look but I...

Songbird..The music of Eva Cassidy.

19 February 2015

More than twenty years ago I was sat on my patio playing music, singing songs and drinking beer with my friend Dan Cassidy.  He said to me he had a cassette he wanted me to hear. We put it on and when I was lost and deeply transfixed to the haunting sound of this wonderful music I was hearing , he turned...

Moscow State Circus

Park Gorkogo

Theatre Severn

It is a brave artist who will walk onto the stage to appear under such an auspicious title as the Moscow State Circus. You have to be the best in the world to continue such a holy name in the map of circus performance.

So that said I can promise a reasonably mixed review with some highlights and one or two lowlights...
