Go See

Fringe, Drama

  • Rating: 2/5

The walls are splashed with huge painted flowers, splayed open with the pollen suggestively poking out. Sultry music plays softly, absolutely everything shines bright red and a scantily clad dancer sways seductively in a small glass booth. ‘Go See’ is...

The Diary of a Nobody

Fringe, Drama

  • Rating: 3/5

This review was of the show's run at the White Bear theatre. The show transfers to the Kings Head in 2015. In the ’90s everyone laughed at Bridget Jones’s; Anne Frank’s still makes us gasp in horror today, but in Victorian London the diary that everyone...

Dirty toilets, poor service and rude staff. This place has gone downhill since getting a late licence.

I loved "Elixir of Love". Everything was spot on - singing, acting, direction and translation. In fact I am going to book to see the parallel cast who have had equally good reviews. Hope it has not sold out yet!

So much fun to have our very own opera house in Islington. Have now seen three new opera productions here (Barber of Seville, Madam Butterfly & The Coronation of Poppea) and would highly recommend every single one. Wonderful to have singers so close up, you see every expression. No food served in the pub these days, but lots of good finds on Upper Street. Look forward to the next opera!

I have never experienced such poor customer service. The theatre cancelled the performance of Barber of Seville for the third time in a row and hasn't notified me in time. Avoid buying tickets in advance for their shows as the show will probably be cancelled.
