Artistic Director of The Old Vic Matthew Warchus, composer and lyricist Tim Minchin, choreographer Peter Darling, and designer Rob Howell, four of the creators of the international musical sensation Matilda The Musical, have joined forces with writer Danny Rubin to collaborate on a new musical based on his 1993 hit film Groundhog Day.
Even by West End standards, this is a big and bold production. The list of credits in the programme is about as long as could be expected from a Hollywood movie if watched to the very end. I am not entirely sure why particular attention has been paid to the place of birth of cast members in the programme, except perhaps to demonstrate that this show has a cast almost as international as its predecessor in the Prince Edward Theatre, Miss Saigon.
A sharp, witty satire on sex, sovereignty and shilly-shallying, In or Out is set in an office deep in the House of Commons, where Annie and Jim, MPs on opposite sides of the House, argue about whether and how to jump off the fence, peering into the future while haunted by their shared past.
West End Bares: EXCALIBARE will feature over 100 of the hottest and most exciting performers from the West End and beyond, coming together to raise money for the Make a Difference Trust. Promising to be a Knight like no other, the cast of EXCALIBARE will bring the medieval tales to life like you’ve never seen before.

The 20th Anniversary production of Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning musical RENT is the fastest selling show in the history of the St. James Theatre, having sold the most tickets not only in a 24-hour period after on-sale, but also in the first week of an on-sale period. RENT also breaks the record for the most amount of money taken on the first day of sales, beating the theatre’s previous fastest selling show record-holders, Sideways and The Pianist of Willesden Lane.
We travel smoothly between the three settings with a clever set that rolls in and out of place during blackouts. The scenes seem to get increasingly dark which is clever on Stephens’ part, as the gradual descent stopped me from shutting off, which could easily happen with a play this dark.
The overall impression is one of fun, enthusiasm, energy, warmth and a deep-rooted love of the works they mock so mercilessly. In this year of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this production is by far the most fitting tribute I have seen. Congratulations to all involved; a triumph.
