Alanis Morissette, at the Brixton Academy

There's nothing ironic about this... Alanis Morissette is playing a gig at the Brixton Academy. We haven't seen her too much in the UK since her hey-day, so this will be a rare chance to see the American star in action.

Chicken, at Trafalgar Studios

"Chicken" is a gritty play set in the Bronx. It follows two childhood pals, Wendall and Floyd, as they train a sickly rooster for an illegal cockfight.

The Taming of the Shrew, at the Globe Theatre

The Globe Theatre will be putting on a production of Shakespeare's outrageous comedy "The Taming of the Shrew". The play follows two wealthy sisters as they search for a husband.
