The Children's Hour Clare Higgins and Harriet Walter are considerably more than substitutes for Shirley MacLaine and Audrey Hepburn in the Hollywood version. Lillian Hellman's powerful drama of love and betrayal closes soon. Hurry.

Royal National Theatre: Lyttelton, In Repertory Crazy for You Gershwin songs, Busby Berkeley-style sets and Susan Stroman's joyous choreography. In the words of the sensational Act One finale, "Who could ask for anything more?"

Prince Edward Theatre, West End Killer Joe A high-octane tale of Texas trailer-park trash indulging in a spot of murder. Brutal and brutally funny.

Bush Theatre, Other Venues
