The Tragedy of Romeo and Rosaline, Bread and Roses Theatre - Review

Arguably the most famous of Shakespeare’s play, you would be hard pressed to find someone who hadn’t at least heard of Romeo and Juliet. Reinterpretation is the lifeblood of theatre, stopping any historical play from being stagnant. What Sharon Jennings of Fentiman Productions has managed to do is keep the play fresh, without reinventing the wheel. Instead she looks at the details in the early back story and extrapolated a parallel narrative from what wasn’t shown in the Bard’s play.

Callaghan, 'Best Year': Single Review

Callaghan

I genuinely had no idea of what to expect from British-born but Nashville-based singer/songwriter Callaghan's new single 'Best Year'; taken from her debut album 'A History of Now'. With the album having reportedly already sold upwards of 10,000 copies in the States, I hoped it would be good... And I'm pleased to say I wasn't disappointed.

Walking the Tightrope: Theatre Review

Walking the Tightrope

In light of recent events, there’s perhaps no topic more relevant than freedom of expression within the arts, and the question of exactly how far one can, or should, go in the name of art is on everyone’s lips. Is it still art when it offends? When it ridicules? When it violates? These are all questions facing the audience of WALKING THE TIGHTROPE – THE TENSION BETWEEN ART AND POLITICS.

Resolutions – Plays For A New Year, Barons Court Theatre

As someone whose birthday falls in January, the festive season and subsequent weeks offer a natural period for introspection and taking stock of the past year. Finding Kibo Productions' Resolutions has been interesting to say the least, as their choice of plays about this supposedly 'happy' period dares to cover topics such loneliness, starting over and the hardships hinted at in songs like A Fairytale In New York, but seldom talked about.

Small Story/Big City - January 2015, Rich Mix

There's one thing you have to admire about the Rich Mix arts venue in Shoreditch, London – it offers a veritable smorgasbord of events across the Arts on any number of topics. The Barbican does so as well within its own remit, but Rich Mix’s dedication to nurturing creativity across the Arts at a grass roots level is to be admired. One of the events that falls under this category is Small Story/Big City, where emerging artists and companies are supported to tell their stories of city life.
