The lovable Birds reboot sees the trio slipping back into their roles to celebrate Christmas in Chigwell. Sharon (Pauline Quirke) is embarking on gift-shopping with a difference and Tracey (Linda Robson) has festive plans that could cause a ruck. And Lesley Joseph - who always steals the show as Dorien - is on a mission to solve a mystery. And, lo, with an Essex-style wink and some bawdy one-liners, a good old-fashioned Christmas special is born.

Review: Young Frankenstein, (Garrick Theatre)

It's definitely a midweek show, rather than a weekend blockbuster, and probably not for the faint hearted (or the politically correct), as it's quite crude and full of euphemisms (what's not to like?), although it does have a moral. That said, Young Frankenstein is an evening of harmless fun that warrants its standing ovation.

Live review: Young Frankenstein, Garrick Theatre, WC2

If you are going to see Young Frankenstein please leave your political correctness antennae in the cloakroom. I counted three gags about breasts in the first fifteen minutes and the rest of the show is positively peppered with the kind of smutty humour that makes the Carry On films seems like Chekhov. And yet somehow this doesn't matter. In this age of triggers and safe spaces it feels a bit old school to say this, but you'll probably be laughing too much to care.

Review: Young Frankenstein

This is a wonderful night out, frequently reaching that all too rare comic plateau where it becomes literally impossible to stop laughing. A triumph.
