The Rocky Horror Picture Show – 2019 World Tour

We all know that the Rocky Horror Picture Show is a spectacle not to be missed, so when the 2019 World Tour rolled around to Wimbledon, of course I had to grab a ticket and come along. I mean… it’s Rocky Horror, there’s really not much more to say… if you’ve never been to a…

Grindr The Opera

After having missed its first run, I made sure to secure tickets to the second London run of Grindr The Opera, playing at the shiny Above The Stag theatre in Vauxhall. Grindr is a hilarious pop-style opera about gay hook-up culture, and especially the trappings of the popular app Grindr. Despite its focus on humour…

Company

I’ve never seen Company before, so when it was announced that it’s coming to London with an all new, gender-swapped, updated production, I had to grab tickets and give it a go! The story revolves around Bobby, a career woman who is celebrating her 35th birthday surrounded by all her married friends, most of whom…

We’ve Got Each Other

I only read the advertised summary of We’ve Got Each Other to know that I absolutely had to see this one. It goes as follows: With the modern jukebox musical comes: a multitalented cast, orchestra, opulent sets, decadent costumes, extravagant dance routines, dramatic key changes and the odd hydraulic lift or two. We’ve Got Each…

The Mechanicals – Camden Fringe

I love me some fringe shows, so I booked to see a few at the Camden Fringe this year. One of them was The Mechanicals at the Etcetera Theatre. For this show, we got to choose our favourite Shakespeare scenes before entering the theatre, with 15 choices to pick from. The top 5 voted for…

God – The Untold Story

So, this sounded like a lot of fun, so I had to grab tickets and check it out. Here’s the show’s short description: After several centuries in retirement, God has decided to make a comeback… and will be granting an exclusive interview to popular chat-show host, Binty O’Reilley. Sounds fun? Yup, it definitely was! The…

Ruthless! the musical

I recently got to see Ruthless! The Musical at the Arts Theatre. Ruthless is a fun, little musical about ambition and scruples. The story of a young performer who is willing to go the extra mile to be the star of the stage, this musical is packed full of humour and silliness. The production is…

Lady Windemere’s Fan

The Oscar Wilde classic Lady Windemere’s Fan was playing as part of the Oscar Wilde Season at the Vaudeville Theatre, so I grabbed a couple of tickets and went along. This classic comedy is set in 19th century London and explores the relationships of social upper class, with all their outward expectations, moral attitudes, infidelity,…

Young Frankenstein

Being a fan of trashy-weird films, I had to check out Young Frankenstein during its run at the Garrick Theatre this year. I felt it really lent itself to being made into a stage musical, so I grabbed a couple of friends and went to see this farcical bit of light entertainment. Tony-award winning director…

Police Cops In Space

RooduHhe aAsWhile scrolling through show names for this year’s Vault Festival I came across Police Cops In Space by The Pretend Men, which sounded like just my thing, so I grabbed a ticket and went on this wild ride.   This show is as silly as it sounds! We’re in the distant future where people live in…

The People’s Rock

I love the Vault Festival as there are always such amazing shows on! Going simply by name, The People’s Rock by the women’s collective Nevertheless She, sounded like a riot, so I booked tickets and headed to Waterloo station to descend into the amazing underground tunnels of the Vaults. Set in a dystopian future that references the “Make America…

Two Petite Pantos

I don’t have the best track record with traditional pantos, as they tend to be quite “oldfashioned” in humour to put it mildly. Two Petite Pantos at the Drayton Arms Theatre was advertised as LGBT-friendly, so I figured I’d give it a shot. I’m glad I did! Ant Payne and Robert Pearce join forces to present…
