A Goodbye To Once And A Hello to Gypsy This Week On The Buzz from the Bardette

Gypsy Friday 27 March 2015

There’s a mix of hellos and goodbyes this week in the West End, so grab your tissues but also your excited klaxon. Last week we said goodbye to a West End favourite- Once. After landing at the Phoenix Theatre in spring 2013, it has been charming the hearts of anyone who went to see this award winning musical.

With London full of revivals and everyone looking forward to some other big guns about to open I started to think about what else I would like to see make a return to the West End?  Cats at the London Palladium and Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre are both enjoying great success, and are pitted against each other in the upcoming Olivier awards in the best musical revival category.

BLOG : How To Spot A Stellar West End Show

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Sunday 22 March 2015

For many, a trip to the theatre is a rare treat. After all, once you’ve shelled out for a ticket, your transport, a programme and of course, an obligatory interval ice-cream, even if you’ve opted for discount theatre tickets, a night out at the theatre is rarely an inexpensive one. Therefore, understandably after months and months of waiting, it can be very disappointing if your experience does not match up to expectations. But is there any way to guarantee that the show you book to see will be perfect for you?
