Top Picks for March

Hopefully the snow isn’t going to keep us all inside for too long. These are the shows you shouldn’t miss this March:

Girl From The North Country

The Girl From The North Country opened before Christmas to brilliant reviews – it was even called ‘a piece of theatre comes along that radiates an ineffable magic’ by The Telegraph. March is your last chance to see it as it closes on the 24th, and TodayTix (either their spring ticket event or the Rush Tickets) is probably the cheapest place to get a ticket. Unless, that is, you want to queue at the box office for a £20 day seat on the front row, which is reportedly an excellent view.

Milly Thomas’ DUST

Dust has transferred to the Soho Theatre following an award-winning, sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Dust is a refreshing and comedic production about the aftermath of one woman’s suicide and the ripple effect it has on her family and friends.

Pippin – Southwark Playhouse 

Written by Steven Schwartz (the guy who wrote Wicked), and having played to critical acclaim at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester last year, this multi-tony-award-winner is a show not to be missed. It also happens to be at one of the most wonderful fringe venues which has consistently put on excellent work.

The Dog Beneath The Skin – Jermyn Street Theatre

Following Proud Haddock’s success in 2017 with The Trackers of Oxyrhynchus (Finborough Theatre) and Mrs Orwell  (Old Red lion, Southwark Playhouse), 2018 sees the company present Auden and Isherwood’s The Dog Beneath the Skin at Jermyn Street Theatre (7 – 31 March). A vivid depiction of a world on the brink of collapse has never seemed so timely.

Emma Betty
Emma Betty

Emma Betty is 28 and a nurse in Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. Emma has the Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Soundtrack (On CD!) to blame for her love for Musical Theatre, which she found in her parents living room pretty much as soon as she was old enough to know what it was. She began combining her love for Theatre, the Internet and Writing while she was still at school, through various blogs and on social media. Having moved to London in 2013, she launched Upper Circle 4 years later. A couple of years on, she is delighted to have a small team and is so grateful to those helping Upper Circle to grow every day!
