  • Review: The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nightime, Gielgud Theatre | TQS Magazine
    way he learns a lot more about himself then he ever thought Perhaps the most arresting aspecting of this production is the staging The stage is transformed to represent Christohger s mind often rigoursly ordered yet sometimes frantic and overloaded It s all flashing lights and colours and presents a perfect backdrop for a play that can rely on strong narrative exceptional acting and movement rather than props and scene changes All of the performances are perfect subltle enough to be believeable but bold enough to be moving It s not an easy job to act and represent autism but it is done both accurately and sensitively from all members of a clearly well trained and well researched cast Simon Stephens said what he hoped to acheive was that This can t be a piece of theatre that alienates people It has to be a piece of theatre that you can come to if you re 10 years old or if you re 90 years old It needs to appeal to people that have very high art taste in theatre but also it s got to be a family night out and I thought that Marianne Elliot director could release that really beautifully and really perfectly Everybody working on it the entire creative team were united in wanting to tell Christopher s story as honestly and properly as possible And he did exactly that The narrative is at times moving and difficult though others light hearted and comical There is something reletable within this story for everyone and the execution and aesthetics of this play make it one of the most enjoyable I have seen in some time Box Office National Theatre Box Office No booking fee 020 7452 3000 Online at www nationaltheatre org uk Gielgud Theatre Box Office

  • Wicked The Musical Review | TQS Magazine
    that towers over it creates the impression of a fantasy world in flux Louise Dearman Elphaba and Gina Beck Glinda are the musicals true MVPs and they shine brightest whenever together on stage What is this Feeling showing off both their talents While Dearman s vocals are powerful and soaring and her Elphaba passionate and defiant Beck s vocals and portrayal of Glinda a re light and fun Dearman inhabits Elphaba so thoroughl y while Beck s Glinda is so charmingly air headed that the strength of the characters carries the musical alone The songs in the first half are universally excellent giving insight into characters personality and emotions while working to the story s emotional beats from fist pumping solos to fun duets However the songs in the second half do suffer compared to the first never finding one as fun as Popular or with the playful harmonies of What is this Feeling or as strong as Defying Gravity although No Good Deed comes close But by this point the characters actions have come to a head and the plot itself catches up with the Wizard of Oz seeing the reinterpretations and behind the scenes moments is thrilling and the less memorable music doesn t detract from the anticipation in seeing Elphaba and Glinda will resolve their differences Perhaps most impressively the musical isn t afraid to show shades of grey in the characters actions and the world of Oz Wicked s version of the Wizard is a man who has clearly become enamored with the praise he receives aptly shown in his song Wonderful and his motives are far more self serving than his book and film counterpart W hile a last minute story revelation feels rushed and perfunctory despite being set up much earlier in the musical

  • Review: The Ugly Sisters | TQS Magazine
    misguided girls into media monstrosities The cast is made up of just five the two sisters and a three piece backing band Not Now Bernard who between them perform a variety of numbers which span rock indie power ballads and more traditional cabaret numbers unravelling the plot a chapter at a time The style reminded us of The Dresden Dolls or the heavier numbers from Spring Awakening It s hilarious from the word go with audience interaction clever word play and some sophisticated slapstick bringing belly laughs from the entire audience Abbi Greenland and Helen Goalen play the sisters with a perfect mix of childhood playfulness and adult emotion We were caught off guard by the gutsy moving numbers which left chills down our spines and a tear in our eye Other productions on this theme have overdone certain elements but here our previous gripes were not suffered dance led sections were beautifully choreographed and nods to celebrity pop culture were subtle and weren t rightously rammed down your throat as we ve seen so many times The short run time just over an hour also helps keep things pacy and exciting there wasn t a single moment we weren t wholly enthralled The Ugly Sisters is everything we d want from theatre of this ilk and our want isn t complicated we want to come out excited inspired and have that I must tell everyone I know about this feeling and we certainly did It s one of the best pieces of theatre we ve seen in a while and this is our telling everyone we know so check out the dates below and get yourself there Martin Carter For more theatre in Leeds check out West Yorkshire Playhouse The Ugly Sisters 2013 Tour Dates 13 14 September West

  • Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life at Tate Britain | TQS Magazine
    people who move something often missed when it is contrasted with the firm static buildings dominating the majority of the image Unlike the Impressionists Lowry shows this contrast rather than turn the entire image into a wash of vivid colours and marks That s not to say the influence is any less clear in the remaining rooms of the exhibition The second room arranges French realist images including a van Gogh alongside Lowry s to show the comparative use of colour and composition The remaining rooms are arranged chronologically noting his particular connection to destroyed landscapes Landscapes destroyed by war or industrialism and the communities they left behind We see The Cripples and The Removal a title that should be The Eviction highlighting the working class communities themselves and the issues that remained following World War II Many social issues were improving the National Health Service was introduced but Lowry remains fixated on working class poverty The Fever Van that collects children with parents well aware that once child step inside it is most likely they will not return The final room displays Industrial landscapes that Lowry adapted as he painted Lowry understood that British Industry was grinding to halt writes Clarke and Wagner remaining sceptical about the end of the old working class Owen Jones in Chavs The Demonization of the Working Class repeats the New Labour idea that we re all middle class now and how the working class have been destroyed following Thatcher s dismantling of the unions and closure of the mines Jones refers to ideals and political attitudes at the end of the millennium and into the 2000 s Lowry paints these final images in the 1960 s Maybe the era is different maybe rickets and TB is long gone but poverty still exists in

  • Ibrahim El-Salahi: A Visionary Modernist at Tate Modern | TQS Magazine
    enhances the later works that he is celebrated for His breakdown of calligraphic lettering and his rearrangement within paintings became core to the image of the Khartoum School and this retrospective shows the building blocks that led to El Salahi s language Reborn Sounds of Childhood Dreams I from 1961 65 is akin to a city scape whereby the colours resemble bones and skeletons rising up from the ground mighty like skyscrapers organic in their shapes His later works become more conceptual as he produces multiple smaller pieces named The Tree They all grow in an organic fashion as he built up the lines steadily like the growth of plant Many pieces remain connected through straight defined lines anything but natural and remain clearly organised and structured The ideas are conflicted as you look at a conceptual flat straight lined image named The Tree Such a diverse range of techniques show a deep respect for Art History but also for his own cultural roots A video interviewing El Salahi describes who he produces art for himself and his ego his own culture and finally everyone else His art aims to reach all and as someone far removed from the Sudanese and Islamic background El Salahi is from it is a testament to his skill that I am so inspired by his work His Art can effortlessly imitate cross hatching techniques of Renaissance figure drawing distort bodies and stretch them out like Giacometti Funeral and the Crescent 1963 and then show a clear connection with African masks Self Portrait of Suffering 1961 and yet something remains the same his love passion and appreciation of what Art is There is no arrogance or ignorance no pretence and assumed intelligence just a desire for understanding This is what speaks loud and clear and

  • Review: WWE at Leeds Arena | TQS Magazine
    lengthy absence stalked around the ring by his opponent the cagey former champion who knows exactly what he must do to win and is very capable of doing so Cena struggled through an injury sustained halfway through the match to come back and win it despite a ref bump and Del Rio s hard hitting style Another personal highlight of the evening for me was the performance of CM Punk the darling of the smart marks as physically devastating in the ring as he is verbally on the microphone His first words of the night to heel genius Paul Heyman Here s the plan I m gonna get in that ring in ten seconds and hit you with this stick Massive massive pop from the crowd Punk s unscheduled tag match where he teamed with Daniel Bryan to face the mysterious Wyatt Brothers had the crowd on their feet for the best part of the match too The rest of the matches were fairly forgettable unfortunately being house matches rather than taped allows the performers to relax the pace a bit which tends to reduce actual match quality and the order of events was especially unfortunate for one Curtis Axel the Intercontinental champ having fled the ring to avoid CM Punk and his big stick earlier in the night he then returned later to defend his belt against R Truth in front of a crowd which had earlier witnessed his cowardly act and so gave him no quarter as a threat He still managed to win though which made opponent R Truth look pretty daft though his years old rapper shtick does that for him anyway My misheard chant of the night the initial Goldberg chants aimed at poor man s Goldberg Ryback changed into Boring by someone a few
