  • 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.

  • Do you love Dick?

    Their joke, not mine! Double entendres aplenty and snake hips all the way for Curtis 'Love Island' Pritchard's first foray into panto. Enter stage left, the Muddy verdict.

  • Review: War Horse, Oxford

    Eleven years after it first premiered, is War Horse still first past the post for must-see theatre? Read our brand new verdict from the New Theatre Oxford gala night.

  • 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.
