BLOG : Review: Beautiful - The Carole King Musical: A Juke Box Musical At Its Very Best

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical Monday 02 March 2015

Following huge success on Broadway, Beautiful based on the life and music of Carole King had already enjoyed rave reviews at the Aldwych Theatre since it's opening this week so I was very much looking forward to finding out what all the fuss was about.

BLOG : REVIEW: The Cats West End Revival Is A True Musical Phenomenon

Cats Monday 02 March 2015

Given that Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mega musical returned to the West End after 12 years as something of a stop gap following the failure of Harry Hill’s I Can’t Sing at the London Palladium, it’s good to see the public have once again taken the show to their hearts as they did back in the 1980s when it opened and started a run that lasted for 20 years.

BLOG : 6 West End Musicals That Need To Be Hollywood Movies

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical Friday 27 February 2015

Though all of us around these parts are deeply in love with theatre and it’s our favourite art form, none of us can deny that movies and the world of Hollywood comes a close second. Movie musicals have been around since sound could be used in film and there are such a wide range of options from classics like Singin’ In The Rain to modern classics like Hairspray that it’s hard to image a world without them... but we can’t deny that we secretly want some more so, I’ve gone and compiled a list of West End shows that really should have a big Hollywood debut.

REVIEW: What's So Great About Miss Saigon?

Miss Saigon Friday 27 February 2015

This week, I had another opportunity to see the award-winning new production of Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre, and I was reminded once again why I fell in love with it the first time (and the second time). It would be far, far quicker to explain what’s not great about it… but a review that just says ‘nothing’ wouldn’t make for very interesting reading. So let’s give this a go!

REVIEW: 13 Times And Miss Saigon Isn't Unlucky For Anyone

Miss Saigon Friday 27 February 2015

Regular readers of mine will know that I have a minor obsession with a few musicals. Ok, a major obsession. Miss Saigon is one of them. I've seen the show twelve times and know all of the words from both the original production and the new one. I was even one of the lucky few to get tickets for the 25th Anniversary Gala back in September which saw the fabulous original Kim, Lea Salonga and other members of the 80's cast join the wonderful new ensemble for a celebration of all things Saigon.
