Either we’ve been in the grip of some cruel mass hallucination or it’s been sunny all week, which probably means that English summertime is here and we should bloody well enjoy it before it starts snowing again.

And what’s more quintessentially London in the summer than going to see a show at Shakespeare’s Globe? NOTHING THAT’S WHAT.

The first show in the theatre’s 2013 season is Shakespeare’s magical final play, ‘The Tempest’, with ‘In the Thick of It’s’ Roger Allam starring as exiled enchanter Prospero and ‘Merlin’s Colin Morgan on hand to provide a little extra sorcery as his sprite Ariel.

But was Jeremy Herrin’s sitcom-style production any cop? Time Out was down at last night’s press night – read our review of The Tempest now.
