Review-Blackout: a work in progress

ALL the actors portrayed multiple roles with ease but I must make specific mention of Delme Thomas who stood out. Each role he played was performed with a deep subtext and meaning. It was clear whenever my eye was drawn to him and this was frequently, that he was completely in character. His ability to slip between accents and body language to change persona is commendable.

Interview: Leo Sayer excited to be coming to the Harlow Playhouse

IT may be a little bit lost in the mist of time but Leo Sayer wrote some fine songs. And what is more they had some wonderful stories attached to them.

Review: Beverley Craven at the Harlow Playhouse

THIS was a classic case of not really knowing what to expect. This reviewer was only aware of the massive 1991 hit “Promise Me” and a couple of other minor songs such as “Holding On”.
To be honest, we thought this was going to be a little bland. How wrong we were.

Review: Ultimate Bowie at the Harlow Playhouse

ON April 20th, 1972, a “one hit wonder” stepped onto the stage of the Harlow Playhouse. His new album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and th eSpiders From Mars” had just been released. In three months time, he was to appear on Top of the Pops to plug a single that had been out for two months. The rest they say is….

Review: Giselle by the Harlow Ballet Association

AS Albrecht, professional dancer Joe Bishop, who trained with HBA as a youngster, gave a dynamic performance, owning the stage with his agility and power. But he never allowed his skill to overshadow the production, complementing and never dominating the rest of the cast.

Review: The Little Mermaid makes a big splash at the Harlow Playhouse

THE scenery was stunning and really made you feel as if you were underwater. Just like the pantomimes at Harlow Playhouse, production values are very important and the audience, who are paying good money, appreciate that the show has also given them a quality product.

Review: Jonny and The Baptists: Swans and Gold Lame

GUSTO. That is the word we were looking for. Jonny and the Baptists have such enthusiasm and gusto that they sat in the audience for the first part of this double bill (In Tents and Purposes) and laughed loudly and heartedly.

Review: In Tents and Purposes

WE would like to think that sooner rather than later, someone will recognise that Roxy Dunn is a writer of razor sharp scripts and snap her up.

Review: Words and music raise spirits at Harlow Playhouse

TO be honest, this reviewer was not that keen on attending this concert. Nothing against You Win Again but the events in Westminster had cast a huge shadow on the day.
