critic's choice THEATRE
Friday 12 May 1995
By far the best musical in town. Performed and directed with real flair and genuine wit, this 24-carat charmer is a delight. They don't write 'em like this anymore, alas.
Savoy Theatre, West End
David Hare's wonderfully balanced tale of love, responsibilties and self- sacrifice in a beautifully measured production by Richard Eyre. An outstanding performance by Michael Gambon. Queue for returns.
Cottesloe: National Theatre, In Repertory
What I Did in the Holidays
Cancel all other engagements and go to Mike Alfred's gripping and truthful production of Philip Osment's masterful play about lost innocence. Surprising and deeply satisfying. Closes Saturday.
