  • Review: Waitress, New Theatre Oxford

    Despite a cancelled first night and multiple understudies, Waitress at the New Theatre Oxford was sweet as pie. Read my review, then book tickets pronto - it's on until 30 April.

  • Review: 9 to 5 the Musical, New Theatre Oxford

    9 to 5 the Musical will be making its living at the New Theatre Oxford until 22 Jan, so Muddy stumbled outta' bed to catch opening night - but was it worth the high heels and 80s hairspray?

  • Review: School of Rock, New Theatre Oxford

    Gold star or time for detention? See for yourself if Andrew Lloyd Webber's touring production makes the grade with the Muddy verdict on the press night.

  • Review: Peter Pan, Wycombe Swan

    A soap-studded cast led by EastEnder's Jake Wood as Captain Hook and Benidorm's Jake Canuso have swaggered into Wycombe for panto season - but has Muddy been hooked by TVs bad boys?

  • Review: Cinderella, Aylesbury Waterside Theatre

    Cinderella's swept in as Aylesbury Waterside Theatre's 2021 Christmas panto, and Muddy hopped into our pumpkin to catch the opening night. Spoiler alert: we had a ball!

  • Review: Heathers the Musical, Wycombe Swan

    Don your coloured knee-highs and ready that schoolgirl scowl: cult 80s teen-fave Heathers the Musical has stomped into the Wycombe Swan. But was opening night to Muddy's taste?

  • Review: Madam Butterfly, New Theatre Oxford

    Welsh National Opera's brand new production of Madam Butterfly landed at Oxford's New Theatre last night. Muddy went to the opening night - but did it fly?

  • Review: ‘Hairspray’, Aylesbury Waterside

    After 18 long months, Aylesbury's première theatre swung back into action with its opening gala performance of this classic Broadway musical - but it worth the wait?

  • Review: Blood Brothers, New Theatre Oxford

    The acclaimed adaptation of Willy Russell's story of twins separated at birth comes to Oxford. Did opening night of 'The Standing Ovation Musical' send Muddy to its feet?

  • Nothing bleak about that!

    Creation Theatre's new musical adaptation of Bleak House, set in Blackwell's bookshop in Oxford, is a classic. Read on for the verdict.
