As a result, A Small Family Business very much seems a play of its time. It doesn't shed any light on our society today. It's not helped by the fact that the whole production is set in the 1980s with plenty of permed hair and shoulder pads.
The Winner of The Voice 2014 is....Jermain. Well done Jermain, best of luck for 2014 and beyond. I will definitely be buying your debut album.
'The Double' is absurdist, timeless, Kafkaesque, sad, funny and weird, eccentric and visually captivating.
It seems an impossible feat to capture with mere words a performance as stellar as that of The Cure last Saturday (and I can imagine, that of the first gig on Friday), so strong and pronounced was its identity and drive.
'Nymphomaniac' will undoubtedly be compared to McQueen's 'Shame', and sadly to the forthcoming '50 Shades of Grey', but the subtle difference here is the complete lack of glamour compared to the gluttonous lifestyle that shroud's both Fassbender's Brandon, and inevitably Dornan's Christian Grey.
In Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, the National Gallery has brought together a vast and extraordinary collection of work from this Renaissance Master, one of the most influential artists of the 16th century.
As we reach the semi-final, the pressure is really on tonight. Who will make it and who will fall just short. The remaining eight are now ready to fight it out for a prized place in next weeks grand final.
It certainly ticks all the boxes when it comes to epic set pieces and impressive visuals. Alas, after a while I tired of the blurry hand-to-hand combat, and was a little bored during the third act, which felt too much like the deafening heli-carrier battle from Avengers Assemble.
So apart from the PR and marketing of your book how else can you get it noticed in the wider world?
City of Dogs is the first of a new three part series that explores compelling issues that plague a City suffering from an over population of stray dogs, a notorious healthcare system and high numbers of sex offenders.
Other Desert Cities is a superb, viciously funny but dark family drama that is the perfect start to The Old Vic's exciting in-the-round season.
'The Past' is a brilliant piece of cinema that places Asghar Farhadi as a major force in World Cinema.
Team Will get us up and running with Jermain and far from being a load of politics, it was in fact a solid start. Good vocal, loads of woohs and note perfect. Well done mate.
After reading Walter Kirn's superb book and seeing what a hash Reitman made of that, my expectations for Labor Day were low - and I was not disappointed. Here again, Reitman writes and directs; I hope he never repeats the experience, if this is anything to go by.
Pro Wrestlers Vs. Zombies is, like others in the neo-B Movie revival, exactly what it says on the tin. Several big names from the professional wrestling stratosphere, including Rowdy Roddy Piper and 'The Franchise' Shane Douglas, are faced with a nightmarish apocalyptic scenario in which the living dead roam the earth with a penchant for lycra-clad flesh.
Angela Lansbury is a living legend of the stage and screen and though she doesn't play the main character in this flawed but enjoyable production of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit, her wit, charm and comic timing is more than enough to ensure you leave the theatre smiling.
