A group of swans appear, offering him both shelter and destruction. He becomes intrigued by the main swan. Momentarily, he is lifted, flying.
I'll admit it - I'm a Madonna fangirl so the thought of spending an evening at a cocktail bar listening to her hits was a dream come true. Yet more than that, In Vogue, a one-man show from one of Australia's biggest music theatre stars, is entertaining, funny and surprisingly touching.
The Donmar's production of Shakespeare's Coriolanus is a vivid, dramatic production that brings out all the blood, bravery and heartbreak in this tragedy. And its leading man steals the show with a remarkable performance.
The main attraction is Tony Scutt's brilliantly inventive set. Set in God's allotment, his garden of creation, stacks of blue painted pallets are packed high with plants and sprouting garden plots scattered amongst them.
If you could ask Shakespeare one thing, what would it be? Building on this question, the MA Shakespeare and Creativity students at the Shakespeare Ins...
With plenty of free time on your hands over the Christmas break, there's not better excuse to pop down to your local London theatre.
American Psycho is a brilliant, innovative musical comedy about a murderous banker on the rampage in New York. Helmed by Rupert Goold, this is a show just cracking with energy. Yet at its heart is an elusive performance by its star attraction, Matt Smith.
Drury Lane is the oldest and most haunted theatre in London. In fact, some say it is the most haunted building in the world. So far, I haven't personally seen any ghosts since we opened in June, but other members of cast and crew claim to have.
Drawing the Line certainly ticks all the boxes in content and characters but at times in the first half this did feel like a dramatized documentary rather than a theatrical piece. I found it fascinating though but then I like historical fiction.
Georg Kaiser's From Morning to Midnight is a piece of expressionist theatre where more emphasis has been placed on the staging rather than any emotional involvement with the characters.

Last week, I was delighted to have the opportunity to meet Louise Dearman, the widely known British musical theatre actress.
Jude Law's performance as Henry V is unequivocally the best acting performance I've ever seen from him. His Henry is full of contradictions - his possessive belief that he is blessed by God masks him to the tyrant he is.
The much anticipated stage version of Let the Right One In is terrifying - but not emotional. There is a lot of excellence in this adaptation of the cult film but, crucially, it lacks heart and soul - somewhat ironically in a story about the undead.
Set in Weimar Germany, Emil is a young boy from a small rural town who has been sent to the city by his mother with one single responsibility - to safely hand over the 140 Marks she has saved all year to his grandmother.
My fears dropped away like the bag of revels I'd just spilt on the floor. As the broad Irish swearing continued, a few old people in the front rows began to shuffle and glance about nervously. It was clear The Commitments was going to be a show like no other.
The Snowman is a wonderful alternative to the usual Christmas entertainment for children of either clichéd pantomimes or The Nutcracker ballet, which can go over the heads of many children.
