Theatre Review: Jack & The Beanstalk, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Jack & The Beanstalk at Liverpool's Empire Theatre was the perfect pantomime evening, and one that I urge everybody to see this Christmas.

Theatre Review: Calendar Girls, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Calendar Girls is a fun night out, and a faithful recreation of the movie. If you enjoyed the film, you'll have a fine time watching it in the theatre.

Theatre Review: Swan Lake, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Swan Lake was something special and not to be missed if you have the opportunity to see it. Simply breathtaking.

Benidorm Live was a great night out, and one that everybody should sample.

La Traviata was a lovely experience, and the three hours flew by.

Theatre Review: Rock Of Ages, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Overall, Rock Of Ages is a brilliant, uplifting show. It rocked our world, people!

Theatre Review: Helen Forrester’s By The Waters Of Liverpool, Empire Theatre,...

There was a lot to like about By The Waters Of Liverpool, but its flaws made the show feel like a missed opportunity.

Music Review: Fast Love – A Tribute To George Michael, Empire...

I love my job reviewing! It allows me to see sterling shows such as Fast Love. I would recommend this show to any George Michael fan.

Theatre Review: Saturday Night Fever, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Saturday Night Fever was a real treat, and a theatre experience I won't forget in a hurry.

I had a fun time watching Let It Be, and any fans of The Beatles will greatly appreciate this too.

If you're completely open-minded when it comes to stand-up comedy, then this is a hilarious night of entertainment, and your funny bone will be overworked.

Theatre Review: Titanic: The Musical, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

This was a very solid production but I did wonder whether Maury Yeston had been listening to Les Miserables the day before he wrote some of the numbers?

Theatre Review: The Play That Goes Wrong, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

I thought that The Play That Goes Wrong was sensational, and I couldn't recommend it enough. You simply have to see this show while it is in Liverpool.

Theatre Review: Son Of A Preacher Man, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Son Of A Preacher Man is entertaining and has its moments, but there are clear issues on display which prevent this from being a show to truly remember.

Theatre Review: Shrek: The Musical, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Shrek is a huge, big-budget presentation courtesy of DreamWorks, and it's one that I highly urge people of all ages, especially those with young children, to go and see during its current stint at the Empire.

Theatre Review: Legally Blonde, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Legally Blonde is well worth watching, and the big scenes had the audience up on their feet applauding and cheering wildly. When you've got the crowd in the palm of your hands, you know that you've got a hit, and Legally Blonde certainly stands out as one of the better shows that you'll see in 2018.

Comedy Review: My Dad Wrote A Porno, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

The live version of My Dad Wrote A Porno is naughty, fun and surreal, a sign of how sex will always sell. Even if it's triggered simply by Belinda blinking.

Theatre Review: An Officer And A Gentleman, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Overall, An Officer And A Gentleman was a great show, with a finale that had the audience up on their feet!

Theatre Review: Summer Holiday, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

This was a good show with a talented, varied cast, featuring some great dance routines and superb singing, with Ray Quinn on stage throughout most of the production and delivering his usual professional performance.

Theatre Review: Beautiful: The Carole King Story, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

This is a great production (direct from Broadway and the West End), and I highly recommend anyone reading this to check it out during its run in Liverpool.

Theatre Review: This Is Elvis, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

If you're a big Elvis fan, and you want to know more about his personal life and his emotions during the years which turned him from a top-class singer into an all-time legend, this is the show for you.

Seven Drunken Nights Review: The Story Of The Dubliners Empire Theatre,...

This is a first-class production that I urge anyone with a real interest in music to see.

Theatre Review: Hairspray, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

If you haven't seen Hairspray during its previous runs in Liverpool, I highly recommend that you check it out.

Theatre Review: Wicked, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Wicked is running for the rest of the month at Liverpool Empire, and judging by this performance, an enormous amount of people are going to want to see this show. If you're on the fence, I urge you to book tickets and come along to experience the magic of Wicked, as it really is a must-see. Incredible.

Theatre Review: Madama Butterfly, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Award-winning producer Ellen Kent, celebrating 26 years of producing opera and ballet in the UK, has brought the popular Madama Butterfly back to Liverpool.

The Bowie Experience Review – Empire Theatre, Liverpool

On the whole, The Bowie Experience was a really enjoyable concert, and an unforgettable journey through the Sound and Vision of Bowie’s Golden Years.

Theatre Review: Tango Moderno, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

This new production from tango stars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace provided a fusion of latin, ballroom, ballet and street dance.

Theatre Review: Sunset Boulevard, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Sunset Boulevard involves down-on-his-luck writer Joe Gillis (Danny Mac) fleeing from the car repo men and ending up in the driveway of 10086 Sunset Boulevard, a deserted grand mansion which turns out to be owned by Norma Desmond (Ria Jones).

Music Review: Islands In The Stream, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

The audience at Liverpool Empire Theatre were recently treated to a tribute to two of the greatest and most famous country singers of all-time, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, as part of the Islands In The Stream show.

Music Review: The Rat Pack – Live From Las Vegas, Empire...

The Rat Pack asked us to come fly with them as they arrived at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool.

Theatre Review: The Band, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Judging by the promotion and the marketing, The Band is a show all about a certain band which originally formed in Manchester. However, it is not necessarily about that group of five at all, but rather a different group of five; a group of five friends, whose lives are intertwined due to the impact of their childhood heroes.

Theatre Review: Jersey Boys, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

Jersey Boys is the crème de la crème of theatre musicals. The story of how Frankie Valli, Tommy Devito, Bob Gaudio and Nick Massi became huge stars as The Four Seasons with one hit after another, only for it all to fall apart (largely because of Tommy's financial problems) is a compelling and cautionary tale, but it is the songs themselves, and the performances of said songs by the cast, that make this one of the most famous shows in the world, spanning from Broadway to the West End and from Toronto to Tokyo.
