Review: In the Republic of Happiness or the play I wanted to sleep through
It was marmite to theatre bloggers but were critics similarly divided by In the republic of happiness?

V&A theatre archive goes onto iPad app

Definitely one for theatre curious. The V&A has created a nifty app for the iPad charting 60 years of British theatre in 100 plays using its archive material.

The app contains over 600 photos, original cast lists, interviews, essays, videos and opening night reviews so you can track Michael Billington's thoughts on theatre from when he was just a cub critic.

I'd be rushing over to the apple store to buy it (£7.99) but I don't have an iPad. Perhaps they'll do an iPhone version soon.
