Ralph Fiennes is riveting as the title character in Henrik Ibsen’s dense and strange play.Fiennes’s performance is a finely measured mixture of wit, vigour, prickliness and anxiety. The closing scenes are especially potent, and here Rob Howell’s stunning design is crucial.

It's a long time since I updated the Ticket Price Watch section which suggests that West End Prices have been remaining stable for a while. But now along comes The Libertine, to take liberties. Tickets from £18.50 say the ads temptingly. We enquired about any group or senior discounts but there are none. The Haymarket Theatre are handling group bookings themselves but other agencies are having to add a £2.50 booking fee to every group ticket. The so-called Top Price tickets are...

Do you like ballet? Do you like Sondheim? If so, you should watch this new ballet film. "Color + Light" is a Grind Arts film based on Stephen Sondheim's song of the same name from his musical Sunday in the Park with George. In the film, the colours come to life as dancers. The film soundtract uses the original cast recording featuring Mandy Patinkin as George and Bernadette Peters as Dot. There's a new ending to the song plot! You can read all about it HERE, thanks to Playbill.com. The film only lasts 8 minutes - to see it at its best, view in full screen mode and make sure your sound is turned up. And don't miss another Sondheim video which you can find on the OnOurOwn page, under our review of the cabaret performance by Ferris and Milnes.

We heard it on the grapevine - Francesca Annis is unwell and will not be able to appear at the Donmar in Welcome Home, Captain Fox!. That is a disappointment and we wish Ms Annis well. On the other hand, we are delighted that Sian Thomas has stepped in and is now catching up in rehearsals for the play's previews which begin on 18 February. She is another of our favourite actresses who always brings style to her perfomances. She last appeared at the Donmar in Richard II with Eddie Redmayne. With a sudden cast change before Les Liaisons Dangereuses opened and now another cast replacement for Captain Fox, we hope the Donmar can shake off the current jinx and we wish Good Health to all future casts.
 
Casting announcement for Elegy 
Casting has now been confirmed for the Donmar's production of Nick Payne's new play Elegy. For those of you who were reluctant to book for a play with no star names yet cast, hold back no longer. Book our remaining seats while still available because the all-female cast are three actors all well know and much liked by us - Zoe Wanamaker (Passion Play, Stevie), Barbara Flynn (Versailles, High Society) and Nina Sosanya (tv's Last Tango In Halifax). This world premier is directed by Josie Rourke and follows Payne's hugely admired play Constellations. It looks like another hit for the Donmar.
