Possibly my favourite Hamlet... so far... thanks to the RSC and Paapa Essiedu (Royal Shakespeare Theatre)
Review: Ben Miles swaps Cromwell cap for fake tan in Sunset at the Villa Thalia, National Theatre

Theatre hottie of the month: May 2016... and introducing girl crush of the month

Now I do have a soft spot for Ben Miles who is in Sunset at the Villa Thalia at the National at the moment (review to come) but this month's hottie is all about the great Dane, the Prince...Hamlet.

The stripped to the waist fight between Paapa Essiedu's Hamlet and Marcus Griffiths' Laertes in the RSC production made it difficult to choose between them but I completely fell in love with Paapa's likeable, hurting Prince. So my theatre hottie for May is Paapa Essiedu. And, because I think the boys have been getting a lot of attention, I'm introducing 'girl crush of the month' see below to find out who is the inaugural recipient.

Girl crush of the month

I've had a girl crush on Pippa Nixon since I saw her in Bea at Soho Theatre back in 2010. Have seen her in lots of things since and last night I got to see her in Sunset at the Villa Thalia and I've still got a crush on her. So Pippa Nixon is my first girl crush of the month.
