I've been very lucky in the last week to have seen three very diverse shows. When I was sat in Jersey Boys for the ?? time it made me question? What is it about this particular show that keeps me returning? In fact it is rare that I leave the theatre without having booked Jersey Boys tickets for my return visit.

Made In Dagenham: The New Hottest Ticket In Town http://www.londontheatredirect.com/news/1565/Made-In-Dagenham--The-New-Hottest-Ticket-In-Town.aspx

I've been waiting for Made in Dagenham The Musical to open at the Adelphi Theatre for a very long time now, and because Made In Dagenham is my all time favourite non-musical movie as well, I've been waiting with very high hopes. So, as soon as ticket sales opened up, I booked to go to the first Saturday evening after the official opening (I hate previews) to finally quench my thirst for the show, and was pleasantly very satisfied!

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Miss Saigon’s Hugh Maynard Talks Training, Auditions, And Upcoming Album http://www.londontheatredirect.com/news/1559/EXCLUSIVE-INTERVIEW--Miss-Saigon-s-Hugh-Maynard-Talks-Training--Auditions--And-Upcoming-Album.aspx

In the crazy world of theatre, it is considered uncommon to be able to see one of your biggest inspirations perform live. It is also considered to be very rare to meet them after the show and express your gratitude for their kindness. Additionally, it is considered even more unusual to be able to organise an interview with said person backstage at the very same theatre in which you first saw their terrific performance.

Fortunately for me, on Tuesday the 21st of October, I went backstage at the Prince Edward Theatre, currently home to Miss Saigon, to meet with Hugh Maynard and discuss life as a West-end star.
