BLOG : Theatre Etiquette (Part One) - Familiar Faces in the Audience

Mamma Mia! Friday 03 July 2015

For a brief moment, your concentration lapses a little and you find yourself wondering whether you look okay – are your buttons definitely done up? Are they smiling because they're enjoying the show, or because you've just spectacularly messed up the choreography? It is hard to tell.

BLOG : Review: 1984 At The Playhouse Theatre, An Innovative And Entirely Unique Play

1984 Thursday 02 July 2015

Now showing at the Playhouse Theatre, 1984 will put you on edge from start to finish, making you feel inexplicably nervous throughout, and you will leave with a whole array of questions buzzing in your mind: where is the line between reasonable and unreasonable levels of censorship; what if totalitarianism did combine so effectively with technology; who wrote this story? However you look at it, 1984 is not a play for the sake of being a play – it has been constructed to explore wide, and uncomfortably relevant, issues. It left me utterly confused.

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. The auditorium was hot so I can only imagine how the cast were feeling under the lights, so it is even more credit to them that they did a superb job entertaining us.

BLOG : Don't Miss Saigon! 5 Reasons To See Boublil And Schönberg’s Epic Musical

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.
