Newest Review: ... and becomes very crowded immediately before any performance. Staff do try to keep some sort of order but it really is a thankless task as the arrangements inside are simply not terribly well thought out; the sweets and popcorn are on one side of the foyer (which is basically a short wide corridor), any merchandise stall is on the other side and the box office stands on the far wall between ... more

A few weeks ago I made a flying trip to Birmingham as my friend won some tickets to see the new Milkshake! Live show which has been specially developed for toddlers and young children, the show features some of my granddaughter's favourite characters so I decided to take her along and have a long overdue catch up with my friend at the same time. The show was being held at The Alexandra Theatre which is located on Station Street in Birmingham City Centre, the theatre is actually a listed building and is rather attractive although its listed status does pose some problems as I will discuss later. I have visited The Alexandra many times over the years and the ... Read the complete review

There is nothing I like better than getting a bit dolled up and going to the theatre and seeing a great show. I have done this a few ties this year and as I am in Birmingham for most of my week I usually check what is on around the theatres here. The main theatre by me is the Alexandra because it is central in town and right next to all of the public transport links.

|Josie Long - Trying is Good|
A vast improvement over her previous shows, and in the best spirit of the Fringe.
No jokes about cocks or how black people talk differently from white people, if that's your thing.
|Mark Watson - Can I briefly talk to you about the point of life?|
Energetic performance and professional grasp of structure, even in the preview show. Very funny too.
He's quite popular, so you won't get to see him in one of the more intimate venues.
|Touch - Bill Dare|
Excellent performances and well crafted plot twists.
Style and realism seem a little confused.
|Norman Lovett's Slide Show|
An amusing look at preserved moments of history, in Norman Lovett's familiar dead-pan manner.
It's still essentially an old man showing some slides and talking about them.
|Richard Herring - Oh f**ck, I'm 40!|
Richard Herring's mid-life crisis tows a fine line between despair and entertainment.
Perhaps too intimately revealing for the weak of stomach.
|Stewart Lee - 41st Best Stand-Up Ever!|
Everything the publicity claims is true.
Self-satisfied desire to remain obscure gets in the way.
|BBC Stand up show live!|
Late night opportunity and great value for money, particularly in the half-price preview week.
A mixed bag of mostly average, lowest-common-denominator stand-up.
|Adam Bloom: Look At Me, Anybody!|
Memorable, mostly new routines from the late 90s comedian.
Still doesn't quite have it nailed.
|Tom Stade - Setlist|
Involves the audience in trying to make sense of a jumbled board of prompts.
Targeting of the disabled and war victims will doubtless offend.
