Surely if Michael Gove were to sit in Little Angel Theatre for Going on a Bear Hunt, he would have his cold heart warmed and rethink the value of arts in education, see how they aid the kind of reasoning and critical thinking that culminate in a society's true mark of success: superb works of collaborative art.

There's no point pretending that I am unbiased in writing this review because you all know that I have personal connections with some of the people in last night's concert so getting all Shentonesque is pointless.
Coward should have faded away long ago. It was one of English theatre's great mantras - his fame was built on gossamer-thin plots and diaphanous characters that doomed his legacy. Not even the slickest epigrams would survive. "One cannot read his plays now," wrote Cyril Connelly, during the war.

The cast, the orchestra and the venue all lived up to the renowned music and lyrics of the quintessentially French musical, leaving an entire audience standing, cheering -and generally crying- once the performance was over.
Sifting fact from fiction whilst simultaneously rushing to file copy is a high-stakes affair, the repercussions of which are felt long after the story has been subbed, laid out and published for mass consumption.
The rapid rise of immersive theatre, which plunges the actors and audience into the same space, has rendered the old-fashioned theatre all but redundant. These days, the most exciting productions are happening beyond the theatre walls.
You can't have an orgasm every time you walk on stage. This line from the script is sitting with me. I think Piaf did give the audience everything every time she walked onto the stage. To play her and to be in the character I must do the same.
