BLOG : Review: Dusty At The Charing Cross Theatre

Dusty Monday 29 June 2015

This was my first visit to the Charing Cross Theatre and what a tiny but perfectly formed theatre it is. There is only one level and it is underground with the station up above.

Miss Saigon Monday 29 June 2015

I’m often weary of seeing a show more than once - I feel like nothing can ever be as good the second time as the excitement and suspense is often gone because you know exactly what will happen next. But I have made an exception to this rule for one very special show: Miss Saigon. I’ve now seen it three times, and each time it just gets better and better. I haven’t lost my love for the show at all, if anything it’s grown more, and below are just my top five reasons why I love Miss Saigon so much.

BLOG : This Year's Top Summer Theatre Picks

American Idiot Thursday 25 June 2015

As soon as I hear a mention of the word “summer”, I immediately think about how much more theatre I can pack in to my weeks of freedom. Sometimes though, it can be pretty overwhelming when you’re faced with so much fantastic theatre to choose from and you just can’t decide what to go and see. So, to rectify that for you, I thought I’d share with you some of the best things I’ve seen in recent months that you simply must catch this summer, as well as what I’ve booked in to see for myself.

If you are a regular theatre goer like myself then you will surely be elated to hear when a new show is headed into London’s West End.
