It’s not exactly unheard of for reviewers to be asked for recommendations to shows by friends, acquaintances and even complete strangers (the latter, at lest in my case, usually via social media). Another reviewer’s recommendation for a production earlier this year was suffixed with, “It’s for grown-ups”. The Night of the Iguana falls into that category: it’s more of a psychological drama than anything else, and frankly, I got the feeling it would have worked just as well as a radio play as … [Read more...]

The Noel Coward Theatre London
First named the New Theatre, and shortly after The Albery, The Noel Coward Theatre was constructed by Sir Charles and Mary Wyndham and had its opening night on 12th March 1903.
In 1915 Dion Boucicault presented a Christmas revival of J M Barrie’s Peter Pan, which was then repeated every year until 1919. It also staged a number of successful productions by other distinguished writers such as Somerset Maugham, A A Milne, Noel Coward, Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas, T S Eliot and Tennessee Williams.
The sixties were ruled by Lionel Bart’s Oliver! which ran for an incredible 2618 performances.
A host of famous names have appeared on stage at the theatre including Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud, Sybil Thorndike, and Peggy Ashcroft. In 1973 the New Theatre was renamed the Albery in tribute to Sir Bronson Albery who had presided over the theatre, for many years. The Noel Coward Theatre has seen many diverse productions such as Somerset Maugham’s The Constant Wife, Children of a Lesser God by Mark Medoff, Tom Stoppard’s Travesties and of course Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers.
