Impressionism Tickets Now on Sale




Tony Award winners Jeremy Irons and Joan Allen return to Broadway in Impressionism, a love story – no matter how you look at it.

Set in Manhattan, Impressionism is the story of an international photojournalist and a New York gallery owner whose unexpected brush with intimacy leads them to realize that there is quite an art to repairing broken lives.

Written by Michael Jacobs and directed by three-time Tony Award-winner Jack O’Brien, this remarkable portrait of human nature marks Mr. Irons first Broadway appearance since his 1984 Tony-winning turn in The Real Thing, and Ms. Allen’s first since her Tony-nominated performance in The Heidi Chronicles in 1989.

Who Do You Think Your Are? Series 3 on DVD in UK

Who Do You Think You Are?



Celebrity shows are everywhere – but here’s one which is bigger than the sum of its famous stars.

I don’t know why it has taken the BBC so long to get the DVDs out, considering we’ve seen Series 5 on TV already.

What’s great about Who Do You Think You Are? is that the celebrities are picked on the strength of their family stories, not on how famous or popular they are, so you get a great eclectic mix.

Even David Dickinson – usually such an irritant – is watchable as he talks about his adoption and finding his real parents.

You also get stars who are so keen to take part, they put aside their usual reticence about doing publicity. So you get to find out more about usually shy celebs like David Tennant and Robert Lindsay.

It’s also beautifully filmed. Jeremy Irons galloping across fields on his horse near his home in Ireland is stunning (if a little luvvie).

Buy the boxset with series one to three, and you also get a DVD about how to trace your ancestors.
