REVIEW: The Rise and Fall of Little Voice @ Theatre Royal Brighton

April 26, 2022

It feels like two plays have met in a bar, got a bit drunk, and forgot to untangle, when it shines Little Voice is brilliant and Bianco’s voice lifts the play way way up, but then when the miserable grubby grasping family drama restarts again, we lurch onwards into despair and hopelessness, no amount of gurning or great acting can save us from that.

REVIEW: Footloose @ Theatre Royal

February 22, 2022

There are a few extra songs shoehorned in, including a rather delightfully silly rendition of ‘Holding out for a Hero’ which allows Jake Quickenden to show off their rather more muscular skills & body and offer the mostly older female audience some energetic but light titillation whilst Darren Day serves some hot silver Daddy action to please other thirsty demographics in the audience
