Reviews

  • Eliot *who?*

    Eliot Hodgkin, duh! (OK I didn't know him either). A surprise hit with my kids, this charming exhibition at Waddesdon Manor re-introduces the celebrated 20th century still life and landscape painter. Well worth the detour to the Coach House.

  • Oxford exposed

    Penny Woolcock's MAO exhibition ain't always pretty, but the naked truth about the City of Spires is worth the watch.

  • Spellbound – the first review

    There's a brand new major exhibition in town and it's all about magic. Muddy hopped on a broomstick and headed down for an exclusive tour and it's a corker.

  • Pick of Edinburgh Fringe

    Heading to Edinburgh Fringe this month? Here's our pick of the best comedy, theatre and spoken word to keep you enthralled and entertained.

    Best panto of the season?

    Oh no it's not! Oh yes it is! Muddy reviews Wycombe Swan's Jack and the beanstalk, starring Simon Webbe, Ashleigh Butler and Chris Jarvis.

  • Muddy reviews: War Horse

    The National Theatre production of War Horse has arrived, so Muddy gallops down to Oxford New Theatre for opening night.

  • Snow White and seven dwarfs at aylesbury waterside theatre su pollard in black cape handing snow white apple

    Panto review! Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs

    Don't eat the manky apple, Snow White! Oops, too late. Read my review of Aylesbury Waterside's seasonal show, starring - oh yeah! - Su Pollard.

  • ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, reviewed

    The X-Factor's Diane Vickers stars in this touring musical at The Wycombe Swan, directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood. But does it score a ten, darling?

  • Feeling it for Flashdance

    Joanne Clifton has swapped Strictly sequins for Eighties legwarmers - here's my verdict from the first night at Aylesbury Waterside.

  • legally blonde uk tour blonde lady in pink chequered waistcoat and hat gripping a mans suit jacket

    Dizzy, daft, uplifting Legally Blonde

    OMG you guys! Just back from Legally Blonde starring a clutch of soap stars at the Wycombe Swan - read my verdict, grab your girlies and go, you'll love it.
