Needs Updating

Since its last update the cast and creative lists have all gone blank. There is nothing to show for the last few years, which is a shame, there are several recent productions I'd have liked to research. And the pages from the side column you cant read what's written because of the pictures in the background. It just so happens there is a "contact us about the app" email address which I cant even read because it's cut off. I wouldn't have bothered puting this review in if I could read it, I'd have just sent them a message.
