Reviews

Hey, we’re no critics even though we do reviews! We’re just Lovers Of Many Things. Hence, a bad theatre production or a really boring movie won’t make it into these archives. This collection of posts is all about the super good things: plays we’ve seen on the West End stage or on Broadway; a film that made us cry or laugh for three days in a row or something else so good that we just couldn’t shut up about it.
