Well after a month out from the blog – mainly
spent drinking cocktails and eating wonderful food in Malaysia investigating the diverse cultural scene and eating wonderful food in Malaysia – its time to cast an eye over the weeks ahead. I had a chance to see Cheek by Jowl’s latest production at the Barbican last week, the enjoyably gory Tis Pity She’s a Whore and staged with the inventiveness that comes as standard with a CbyJ production. A review will be up later in the week.
Next week I will be trotting along with the rest of London’s hipsters too see Zach Braff’s first foray into stage plays, ‘All New People‘. After receiving broadly positive if not ecstatic reviews in America, it has now crossed the pond and looks to be a reliably enjoyable if rather predictable evening.
Also worth pointing out the National Theatre Live series continues with A Comedy of Errors, which will be airing at cinema’s round the country on 01 March. Lenny Henry got very positive reviews on his latest return to the stage and whilst it is not the same experience as watching live, it is a commendable project to bring the theatre to those who do not have the time, money or ability to venture to London at the drop of a hat.
