Oh, those lazy hazy days of the 60s. Cilla doing her thing, Petula Clark giving music life. Swinging London was the place to be. New music was flooding the scene daily. And then there was Dusty Springfield. Educated at a convent school, with a slightly dysfunctional family and being somewhat of a tomboy, music was, perhaps it can be inferred, her release.

I recently made my third visit to the ‘Land of Lola’ with Kinky Boots, however, it was my first time seeing it under the '16/'17 cast, and my love for this show only seems to grow more with each visit. 

Multi-award winning actress, writer and comedian Miranda Hart will make her West End debut bringing life to the role of Miss Hannigan in Nikolai Foster's production of Annie. The musical, based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strips, has become a beloved classic spawning multiple award-winning Broadway and West End runs as well as critically acclaimed films. 

Around the same time last year, I saw Les Miserables on stage for the first time. A year later and I couldn’t resist a revisit, and I fell in love all over again. Therefore I thought I’d remind you of why this show is a must-see!

Not once, but twice this year will theatregoers have the chance to witness one of the finest actors ever to tread the boards. Imelda Staunton will be starring in the revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf at London's Harold Pinter Theatre. Later on, she will be at the National in a revival of Sondheim’s Follies.  

Dirty Great Love Story is a great play, that doesn't quite fit the West End. Currently playing at the quaint Arts Theatre, the show is a love story, told by two actors (Felix Scott and Ayesha Antoine) through what is essentially staged poetry.
