BLOG : Memorabilia: Musical Theatre Geek Chic

Cats Wednesday 25 February 2015

What is your favourite item of memorabilia? We've all done it. Watched a fabulous show and got so swept away with the occasion that we couldn't help but buy every item we could find baring its logo. I'm am the worst for this and although as I've got older I've tried to be a bit more sensible in my trinket buying, there are just some things I can't do without. 

BLOG : Please Let Us Backstage! London's Backstage Theatre Tours

Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition Wednesday 25 February 2015

Want to see what goes on behind the scenes of your favourite West End Shows? Me too! I've just recently got back from a fascinating back stage tour of The National Theatre and wish a few more of our West End theatre's would offer this opportunity. Theatres currently offering this are few and far between, and it's a shame more don't allow enthusiasts like us the chance  to see how things work. I've listed below a few that are definitely worth a visit.

BLOG : 10 Funny Theatre Quotes To Brighten Your Monday

Sunny Afternoon Monday 23 February 2015

Sometimes a one liner in a show really gets you. You feel your shoulders shake, tears fall on your cheek, you simply can’t hold it in any longer... And you burst out laughing. Whether you’re going to see a comedy or there is a comic element to the play, it might be as simple as a look, an action or a line that just has you rolling in the aisles. It was Shakespeare who said ‘With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come’ so let’s embrace some of the funniest lines in theatre!

BLOG : REVIEW: Who Needs Chelsea? Made In Dagenham Is Much More Fun

Made in Dagenham Monday 23 February 2015

I’m thinking about starting a revolution. Who’s with me? I haven’t figured out what we’re fighting for yet, but if Made In Dagenham’s anything to go by, we'll have a lot of fun. The show, inspired by true events, tells the story of the 1968 Ford Machinists Strike in Dagenham, Essex, which was a significant step in achieving equal pay for men and women in the UK. Maybe that doesn’t sound like the stuff successful musicals are made of, but then you could say the same about Billy Elliot, and look how that turned out.

BLOG : Everybody Loves A Bad Boy: The 5 Best Theatre Villains

The Lion King Monday 23 February 2015

Over the years, theatre’s given us some great heroes. Jean Valjean, Oliver Twist, Tracy Turnblad, Mary Poppins, Simba… They come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing heroes have in common is that they always have the audience on their side. But what about the bad guys? Often they’re just as important to the story, and in a lot of cases, more fun to watch, because where a hero is usually pure goodness, a villain is often an intriguing mix of good and bad. Here are five of my favourites - who are yours?
