Holly McCarthy Theatre is a form of entertainment that continually pushes boundaries. In a quest to break down barriers for actors and audiences, o...
Curtain Up really is a marvelous celebration of theatre in London and New York. It explores the entire journey of the productions, from conception to centre stage, with a great collection of personal artifacts that rarely see the light.
Anyone who reads my column here in the Huff knows I regularly sing the praises of the Disability Arts Scene. I feel it is a place where art surpasses any constraints of impairment and explodes any stereotypes of disability with creativity and output that challenges the mainstream art world to achieve anywhere near it's standard.
I really believe in the power of creativity to help. For me, it's writing. But equally all forms of creative expression are vital, whether that's doodling on a napkin or listening to super loud music and singing along at the top of your lungs.

Perhaps most impressively, the production manages to make a book from an era where a year's worth of information corresponds to approximately a second's of our own time feel relevant without the need for any crude literary devices.
If Yen is trying to tell us one thing, it is that people become brutalized by a system that neglects them, but we can all have a chance if someone or something can remind us that we're not invisible, that we do have something to offer the world.
Caryl Churchill's latest play, Escaped Alone, is magnificent. It has all the qualities that mark her out as the greatest living playwright - it's funny, it's complicated, and it's sinister. But what's also important is that this is a play about four women in their 70s, sitting in a garden. It's revolutionary.
Like most women I have navigated most of my life through a smorgasbord of insults and 'compliments' regarding my body - more often than not comments that somehow compared my body to food. I had to learn fast what food types it was ok to be and what were definitely not.
This production sets the scene at the intimate Trafalgar Studios venue, with the story and it's multiple characters being told through four very versatile actors. Guy Warren-Thomas takes on the title role with ease, delivering a youthful outlook that gradually decays to reveal a darker foundation.

Les Liaisons Dangereuses really is such a terrific play. Christopher Hampton's adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos' novel is just so good - full of passion, intrigue, betrayal, loss and gender politics. And all these themes wrapped within this well-known story of a pair of schemers in pre-Revolutionary France.
I love physical comedy. I watch it, I do it, I perform it, I think it and I admire it. In my opinion, as far as brain power is concerned, it's very easy. You don't have to structure a written joke; you don't have to read the news to talk about current affairs.
I went to the theatre quite a lot this year, mainly because I couldn't get tickets for the final One Direction concert. In lieu of throwing my pants at Harry Styles here are the best things I saw in 2015.
All training institutions offer a wide range of skills to their students and I firmly believe that we still offer the best actor training in the world here in Britain. Indeed I believe we train the best actors. I don't believe you can be taught how to act, but I think you can be taught how to be an actor.
And now, courtesy of a little old press release on the Harry Potter musical, everyone is talking about Noma. Everyone. So how thrilled I was to catch her here before she becomes huge next year.
