  • Eddie Summer School of Burglary comedian in balaclava pink 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 in this case).

  • 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.

  • Octopus Soup Windsor Theatre Royal 2 men and 1 woman drink wine with an octopus in a tank

    Review: Octopus Soup

    They Think It's All Over… but it's not for Nick Hancock as he makes his theatrical return in Octopus Soup – a crime comedy with a strangely familiar tale (minus the seafood).

  • Union J star Jaymi Hensley in silver loin cloth in chain Jospeph and his mazing technicolor dreamcoat

    Review: Joseph at the Theatre Royal Windsor

    The coat of many colours has been passed on to Union J's Jaymi Hensley. But how does the bare-chested boy bander compare to the ghosts of Joseph's past.

  • madagascar The Musical wooden crate on stage with giraffe lion hippo annd zebra inside

    REVIEW: Wild for Madagascar?

    I like to move it move it! Muddy heads to the first night of Madagascar The Musical to see if Matt 'The X Factor' Terry has roarsome animal attraction.
