Theatre

  • Awesome Autumn culture planner

    It's all going on! Behold, your cheat-sheet to the season's best art, theatre, TV, books and film in the UK, as curated by Muddy's extremely cultural Kerry Potter.

  • Review: The Exorcist, Windsor

    Forty-six years after it opened in cinemas and following its London stage debut, is The Exorcist must-watch, cult viewing? Read our verdict from the Theatre Royal Windsor's first night.

  • Review: The 39 Steps, Windsor

    Femme fatales will be clutching their pearls in this slim-line parody of the 1935 Hitchcock film, The 39 Steps. It's fast, funny and has a Downton Abbey film star.

  • Eddie Summer School of Burglary comedian in balaclava pnk dolls house

    Best of Reading Fringe

    No need to schlep to Edinburgh for a fabulous Fringe, we've got one right on our doorstep. Breathe in the cool culture, here's Muddy's pick of Reading Fringe Festival.

  • The Anastasia File Theatre Royal Windsor Jenny Seagrove actress kneels praying, actor in white coat stands and Romonov crest llumintaed on the wall

    Pass me a vodka, it’s tense.

    This ain't no sugar-coated Disney adaptation, The Anastasia File at the Theatre Royal Windsor, is so tense you could hear a pin drop (or a mobile phone ring).

  • The Importance of Being Earnest Cast Watermill Newbury

    Who the chuff is Earnest?

    Who needs Love Island when you can have Oscar Wilde's 24-hr (Victorian) party people – a group with loose morals, bad manners and a low opinion of marriage.

  • Napoli, Brooklyn - Georgia May Foote, Hannah Bristow, Mona Goodwin (c) Marc Brenner

    Drama queens reign in Windsor

    Take four strong women, add one violent man and you've got more drama than Meghan's birth plan. Napoli, Brooklyn makes its UK premiere in Windsor and it's all kicking off.

  • Chris Fountain and Adam Lilley star as Charlie and Raymond in Rain Main theatre show Windsor Theatre Royal holding casino chips and wearing grey suits

    Review: Rain Man at Theatre Royal Windsor

    The 80s called, they want their film back. Well they can't have it. Rain Man has arrived back in Windsor and it's funny, moving and as familiar as lace fingerless gloves.

  • The filthiest, funniest show ever

    Filthy, filter free and absolutely fabulous, Avenue Q is wet your pants funny – and those puppets do things that will make your nan blush. Muddy saw it all at The Hexagon in Reading.

  • High School musical stage musical South Hill Park Bracknell Jocks playing basketball go wildcats

    Review: High School Musical

    High School Musical is relentlessly cheerful, squeaky-clean fun with all the energy of an enthusiastic puppy. You can't help but get sucked in.
