Worbey & Farrell in Concert – Hippodrome Casino, London

Creators: Steven Worbey, Keven Farrell Reviewer: Cavelle Leigh Worbey and Farrell are reminiscent of a two-man piano show of yesteryear when banter and piano equated an evening’s full-on entertainment. With little else but a handmade shining Yamaha S-6, the two dapper gents entertained the crowd in an intimate old-fashioned setting for just under two hours. By their own admission Stephen ...

If It Only Even Runs A Minute – Hippodrome Casino, London

Reviewer: Fran Beaton [rating:2.5] Nice idea, to showcase songs from flop musicals. Nice idea especially when performed by original cast members and accompanied by backstage anecdotes. But If It Only Even Runs a Minute is presented in such a self-indulgent formula that it overrides the ‘nice idea’ and instead becomes a showcase of self-promotion and inside jokes.

Sherie Rene Scott: Piece of Meat – Matcham Room, Hippodrome Casino London

Reviewer: Lucy Thackray [rating:4] Piece of Meat is a fun show. From its description you'd be forgiven for thinking that this is the sort of one-woman show that only works in a specific off-Broadway context and might be a bit indulgent and, well, American for us cynical West Enders.

Lea Delaria – Live at the Hippodrome, London Hippodrome

Reviewer: Ian Foster [rating:5] We’re lucky enough to live in a world now where, although there is still much progress to be made, acceptance of gay and lesbian people on the television is pretty much a given. So it is incredible to think that it was less than 20 years ago that Lea DeLaria made history as the first openly ...

Suzi Quatro: Unzipped – The Hippodrome Casino, London

Reviewer: Christopher Owen [Rating:4] Suzi Quatro is a rock and roll icon. Approaching 50 years in the performing industry, she here gives an honest and frank look and listen into her life and career from the highs, to the very lows and then back up to the highs in her stripped back show 'Unzipped'.
