BLOG : Theatre Etiquette (Part Four) - Cast, Meet Crew

Bend It Like Beckham Saturday 01 August 2015

You only ever see them in the shadows. All in black, moving silently, appearing out of nowhere … The crew – a baffling force. A group of people who have the power to make or break your performance – they're the sort of people you really want to have on side. But how?

BLOG : Why The Lion King Is The Most Memorable Performance I've Seen In The West End

The Lion King Wednesday 29 July 2015

Having seen an extensive number of West End shows it is more than difficult to mark one as my most memorable.  Wicked, Shrek, Matilda, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Legally Blonde, Chicago, Mamma Mia! – none of which failed to deliver – are amongst the list for me to choose from. But it is safe to say after having seen it three times and currently planning a fourth visit, The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre is by far my most memorable West End show. 

BLOG : Something A Little Different... Theatre Outside The Box

I Believe In Unicorns Tuesday 28 July 2015

Last year, London played host to some of the most intuitive and exciting theatrical experiences. The immersive theatre specialists, Punchdrunk, took over a former postal sorting office in Waterloo and created the extraordinary 1960s world of Temple Studios, whilst The Kindness Of Strangers took five audience members at a time on an ambulance tour criticising the disintegration of the NHS. Whilst, arguably, last year was the pinnacle of pioneering theatre, this summer also displays a continued interest in stretching boundaries.

BLOG : Constellations: A Romantic Comedy With Added Physics

Constellations Friday 24 July 2015

Sometimes, when all you hear of a play is amazing reviews, it can seem a bit too good to be true. I've yet to hear anyone say a bad word about Constellations, directed by Michael Longhurst and recently arrived back in the West End at Trafalgar Studios after a UK tour - and this made me simultaneously desperate to see it and anxious that it wouldn't live up to my towering expectations. But as it turns out, I needn't have worried.

BLOG : Theatre Etiquette (Part Three) – The Audience

Bend It Like Beckham Thursday 23 July 2015

In my last blog, we established the Interval Theatre Etiquette. But what about before and after the interval – whilst you are actually in the auditorium, watching a performance? You might not immediately think of this as the time during which theatre etiquette most needs to be established, but think back: how many times have you been sandwiched between the person who won't stop talking and the person who is eating popcorn with unnatural vigour, with people coming in late just in front of you? Of all the theatrical situations with which we Thespians are faced, it could well be that the auditorium itself is the place that is most in need of some etiquette fine-tuning. So what exactly is the etiquette for an audience member?

BLOG : Review: The Mentalists At The Wyndham's Theatre

The Mentalists Thursday 23 July 2015

★★★★ I was fortunate enough to see The Mentalists this week thanks to London Theatre Direct. The Wyndham's Theatre never ceases to amaze me at how beautiful it is. With its bespoke pale eggshell blue wallpaper it's like sitting in a Victorian front parlour with its picture frame stage.
