3BUGS and LGBTQ Association’s ’12’ Review

Rating:  4.5 stars The atmosphere at the dress run of 3BUGS Fringe Theatre and UoB’s LGBTQ Association’s performance ‘12’, directed by Annie Kershaw, was one of hilarity and vibrancy. What was promised to the audience was “a new version” of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’, and right from entering the space, it was clear this promise would …Read More



Theatre Review: Billy Elliot

After a twelve-year run on the West End, Billy Elliot comes to the Birmingham Hippodrome until April 29th.
