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
