Review: Nativity! The Musical, Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield

There is a cracking joke in this musical about a failing primary school which puts on a musical about the Christmas story. A little lad asks his teacher if he can play Joseph and explains why. “Because my mum is having a baby and my dad doesn’t think it’s his!”

Review: Legally Blonde, Lyceum Theatre

I think I must be the only person in the world who has never watched the film of Legally Blonde and with lots of pink, pom poms, a chihuahua and some cupids on roller skates this sugary show is far from what I would normally watch. Yet once you dust the icing off it really does have substance. A great tale of positivity, love, ambition, friendship and respect.
