It’s been a good year in Yorkshire as the Playhouse has had a solid year putting on some top quality shows, including Nick Ahad’s moving Partition in collaboration with BBC Leeds, and the Grand has continued to play host to top quality touring productions straight from the West End with production values to match.
Life as a North West End reviewer can have its ups and downs. Some productions that you’re REALLY looking forward to turn out to be a crashing disappointment, while others leave you open mouthed and on your feet, yelling for more. Here are three theatrical experiences that definitely fit into the latter category.
