Bakersfield Mist review

KATHLEEN TURNER! The actual Kathleen Turner, live on stage in London! I could not have been more excited! For me the Duchess Theatre has been host to quite a mixed bag, but it was very hopeful that Stephen Sachs' new work would quench my thirst for fresh theatre. Now for me, Seeing Kathleen...

Miss Saigon review

The heat was certainly on when I ventured to the Prince Edward Theatre to see the much anticipated Miss Saigon. I LOVE the location of this theatre, nestled within the inner belly of kitsch Soho. On this particular evening it was lovely to have an alfresco pre show cider at one of the adjacent bars...

1984 Digital Double app

1984 review

I absolutely love theatre that has the ability to make me feel something, especially terror! That may sound odd but psychological thrillers are harder to pull off on stage and when a show manages to strike some real element of fear in me, I am impressed! What could be more terrifying than the...

The Pajama Game review

For me I find seeing Chichester Festival Theatre transfers a pretty safe bet (Sweeney Todd, Singin’ In The Rain, Kiss Me Kate etc.) Everything has been tried and tested and usually comes onto the West End wrapped in a nice neat little bow. The Pajama Game is no exception. This fun, frothy classic...

Matilda the Musical review

I do not know how I have made it this long without seeing Matilda the Musical. I love Roald Dahl, I love theatre, I find Tim Minchin (musician and lyricist) pretty hilarious and I have a huge respect for the Royal Shakespeare Company, so on paper this sounds like the perfect musical for me. After...

Stomp review

Stomp began as a Fringe production in 1991 and quickly found commercial success. Now in its eighth year at the Ambassadors Theatre, audiences seem to continue to flock to Stomp, a production that celebrates rhythm and movement using “found objects,” night after night. With its urban vibes and...

Good People Imelda Staunton OT

Good People review

David Lindsay-Abaire’s Tony Award winning play, Good People, is a sad insight into the life of those living on the breadline, compared with the lives of those who “made good.” I am usually one for escapist theatre, but having read a deluge of news articles recently about just how many people...

Let The Right One In review

If “vampires” could be considered a genre, it would undoubtedly be one of my favourites. With a teenage love of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and a slight True Blood addiction as well as penchant for spooky novels, I was very excited that a new scary and somewhat blood thirsty show was arriving in...

Official Theatre Once New Poster

Once review

There is no shame in admitting that I have seen Once not once, not twice but thrice! On third viewing I have decided it is officially my favourite musical on the West End. Once has it ALL; heart, soul, beauty, comedy and perfect, perfect music. I am really not one to gush, but this show is...

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels review

"It was a ball, it was a thrill! You had the grace, you had the skill!" Lyrics from Dirty Rotten Scoundrel's finale number that I couldn't have said better myself! This new arrival on the west end is a classy musical romp that will have you tapping your feet and smiling from beginning to...

One of the beauties of the film Amélie is that very little happens. There’s no drama, no test of faith and no real obstacles to be overcome. And yet it’s mesmerising, whimsical and charming. So how could a musical adaptation live up to its following, especially when Yann Tiersen already created a fantastic score? Amélie […]
