THEATRE REVIEWS

The Theatre reviews below feature some of the shows I've been lucky enough to attend. In the process of reviewing I have tried to analyse and be critical of the performance as a whole from the acting to the direction and set design.

The Theatre reviews here are just of MY OPINION to which I claim my just right to express. Anyway, read on and see what you think of it and if you like or dislike what you see, contact me - GUESTBOOK.
