BLOG : Review: Showstopper! You Couldn't Make It Up!

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical Tuesday 13 October 2015

For those of us who haven’t got beyond the singing into a hairbrush stage of performance (go on, you know you’ve done it), the thought of standing up in front of a real audience is frankly terrifying. So the idea of putting yourself up there with no prior knowledge of what you’re supposed to be saying or singing, sounds like a real squeaky bum moment that is either an act of extreme bravery or total madness. But that’s just what a company of seven hugely talented performers and three accomplished musicians do in Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, a wonderful show that does exactly what it says on the tin.

BLOG : Review: Kinky Boots Is The Must-See Show Of 2015!

Kinky Boots Friday 09 October 2015

Providing an evening of utter joy and total escapism, Kinky Boots is the must-see show of 2015. Having won six Tony Awards after opening on Broadway in 2013, Kinky Boots has finally crossed over the pond and brought its irresistible charm and dazzling footwear to London.

BLOG : Olivier’s: Best New Musical Award Candidates

Kinky Boots Wednesday 07 October 2015

As we reach the halfway stage between the 2014 and 2015 Olivier Awards, the judges must begin to consider which shows have, so far, made their claim for the coveted prize of Best New Musical.

BLOG : Review: Mamma Mia! At The Novello Theatre

Mamma Mia! Wednesday 07 October 2015

When I went to see Mamma Mia! – which has been in London for seventeen years, and is based on the music of the well-loved Abba – I expected to be very impressed. But, whilst the show was, undeniably, fun and very easy to watch, it was not as good as I had hoped it would be.

BLOG : Review: Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Is One For The Kids, Stunning For A Younger Audience

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Sunday 04 October 2015

Roald Dahl books being turned into smash hit West End musicals is slowing becoming the new big thing to do, but what makes Charlie And The Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane so different from shows like Matilda: The Musical I hear you ask? It’s that, in all honesty, Charlie is a show that is seemingly aimed at a younger audience.

BLOG : Children Are Maggots, But This Show Isn’t! MATILDA At The Cambridge Theatre

Matilda The Musical Friday 02 October 2015

I was lucky enough to have been invited along to review the first performance with the new 2015/16 cast of the original production of Matilda: The Musical and I was elated; I haven’t seen the show since early 2012, a matter of months after the show first opened, and I’ve been itching to get back there ever since but I just hadn’t gotten around to it. I was reminded why I wanted to be back there so badly though and that’s what I’m talking about today.
