Theatre hottie and girl crush of the month - June 2016 edition

Have three contenders for theatre hottie this month. First up is Matthew Marrs who played Jimmy (and all the other characters) in the rather good Odd Shaped Balls at the Old Red Lion. Then there was Alexander Hulme who was the hottest Claudius I've ever seen in Gertrude - The Cry at Theatre N16 (didn't enjoy the play so much). And finally, there was the lovely Jack Farthing in Wild at Hampstead Theatre who even treated us with some shirtless push ups on stage - Wild is on until July 23 and is also rather good.

It's definitely a close run thing but I think I'm going to go for Jack Farthing in Wild:

Right, now onto my Girl Crush for June. This was an easy one because she is just such a goddess on the stage: Helen McCrory in Deep Blue Sea. Love the play and production - it's in my top 10 for the year so far - and love her, she could make a towelling dressing gown and fluffy slippers look glamourous. And you can still see her being brilliant in Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre until September 21.
