BLOG : Why A Hit Musical Will Never Grow Out Of A “Gap In The Market”

By Harriet Hards
Hamilton Monday 27 June 2016

If you were to pitch some of the most famous musicals on the planet right now, from Hamilton and Les Miserables to The Lion King, to someone who had never heard on them, you’d have to try really hard not to make them sound a little bit bizarre.

BLOG : Review: "Aladdin has finally landed in the West End – and, no, it's not a pantomime"

By Harriet Wilson
Aladdin Monday 27 June 2016

 So Aladdin has finally landed in the West End – and, no, it's not a pantomime. In fact, it is an absolutely awesome musical. There are few shows quite as visually impressive as this one, and equally as few so overflowing with life and energy. When I went to see the show, a well justified, complete standing ovation erupted at the end, and I would have expected no less – but to have a partial standing ovation mid-way through a show is quite something, so I was duly impressed when, after “Friend Like Me”, this is exactly what happened. Aladdin is genuinely hilarious, and performed with exceptional flair. Happily, it is just as suitable for adults as it is for children.

BLOG : Review: Hobson's Choice At The Vaudeville Theatre

By Harriet Wilson
Hobson's Choice Wednesday 22 June 2016

Hobson's Choice, currently playing at London's Vaudeville Theatre, is quite an underwhelming show. It is an extremely gentle comedy which, if it was a TV series, would almost certainly be played on a Sunday afternoon. There is nothing in the show that makes a huge impact but, equally, there is nothing wrong with the show; it potters along pleasantly, just without the same kick that a lot of West End shows have. The show is celebrating its one-hundredth anniversary, so perhaps it has just dated a little.

BLOG : Review: Aladdin "The most colourful and fantastic musical on the West End"

Aladdin Wednesday 22 June 2016

There has been a lot of excitement and, dare I say, hype surrounding Aladdin. It is a classic story and people have a lot of affection for it, whether it be the pantomimes they saw as a child or the Disney film, on which this production is based. There is so much expectation for this to be good and it more than meets it.

BLOG : Review: Aladdin Is "a theatrical masterpiece that brings fun and light back to London theatre"

Aladdin Wednesday 22 June 2016

Last night, I headed up to London’s Prince Edward Theatre to catch the brand new shiny production of Disney’s Aladdin - despite the fact that the original movie was released nearly ten years before I was born, I’ve grown up loving it and it’s soundtrack, so I was thrilled to be able to see it in the West End!

BLOG : 5 Reasons Why You MUST See Aladdin!

By Molly Richardson
Aladdin Tuesday 21 June 2016

You may or may not remember, a while ago I did a blog of reasons to be excited about Aladdin following it's West End announcement of it riding into The Prince Edward Theatre, after being a huge hit on Broadway since 2014, and it was finally time to have my wishes granted and experience the magic of Agrabah for myself on it’s first official opening night.
