The Crown Dual, Wilton's Music Hall - ★★★★ - Until September 14, 2019


Clare Foy and Matt Smith move aside! Writers for Netflix's The Crown you've been replaced! These two multi-talented actors do all the parts and cover the whole first season in 70 minutes. And, this version's a lot funnier than the original. This is a very clever spoof of the series that has the audience in stitches and it's an amazing demonstration of theatrical timing. The jokes come thick and fast and you really don't require an in-depth knowledge of the series to enjoy the fun. The premise is that Rosie Holt is an actress, Beth, who failed to get the role of the queen in the Netflix blockbuster and Brendan Murphy is Stanley, her part-time agent. They take on the The Crown with Beth playing the Queen and Stanley doing everybody else (though we must note Beth also does a star turn as the penguin). This is a great evening of silliness and satire, and we thoroughly enjoyed this delightful romp through the monarchy's dramas. Now we want to see Beth's and Stanley's version of season II. Can it get even better?
