Bat Out Of Hell

When I heard that the new Bat Out Of Hell musical was coming to town, I jumped to book tickets. I knew I didn’t want to miss this one. How could I resist Jim Steinman/Meatloaf’s greatest hits packaged into a dystopian musical! I was absolutely not wrong! From the startling, sudden start through to the very last note,…

Death Of The King

This ImmerCity event, organised through Love Popups London, sounded like an amazing murder mystery, so we had to try it out! Here’s how they advertised it on the event page: A psychologically thrilling immersive mystery awaits you deep under the streets of London, in the basement of an old abandoned rug factory. In 1983 the era of punk,…

Woyzeck

I had been waiting for months to see Woyzeck at the Old Vic. Georg Büchner’s unfinished play is such a visceral, interesting portrait of struggle, I was quite excited to see Jack Thorne’s new, modernised interpretation. Unfortunately it didn’t quite live up to my excitement.  The story is transformed and modernised to show the struggle of…

Beauty And The Beast

I recently got to see Jellyfish Theatre‘s production of Beauty and the Beast at Barons Court Theatre. The venue is a small theatre close to Barons Court station, just down a flight of stairs in a gorgeous neighbourhood pub. The staff there were incredibly friendly and they have big comfy sofas to sit on. Jellyfish Theatre put on…

Horror

When I first heard about Jakop Ahlbom’s Horror presented by Sadlers Wells, I was intrigued. A horror film produced for the stage? Count me in! Horror tells the story of a young woman returning to her family home with two friends to discover what happened to her older sister. The play is eerie and unsettling from the…

Love In Idleness

Last week we went to see Love in Idleness during its limited run at the Apollo Theatre, starring Eve Best and Antony Head.  The theatre itself is one of the more gorgeous ones, with grandiose decorarions in red and gold and all the grandeur of an old theatre. I love visiting these old theatres, while the seats…

The Braille Legacy

I was fortunate to get to see The Braille Legacy at the Charing Cross Theatre this week. The theatre is located directly in The Arches at Charing Cross and is relatively small. Unfortunately the staff was very reserved and not in the least helpful to patrons, but this is no fault of the production itself, so let’s put that…

The Girls

Yesterday I had a chance to see the new musical The Girls at the Phoenix Theatre. I’ve heard good things about it and wanted to check it out for myself, so off I went to the side entrance of the Phoenix Theatre and climbed all those stairs all the way to the top. We had a gorgeous…

The Addams Family

During my trip to Canterbury, I saw a poster advertisement for The Addams Family musical, I immediately researched tour dates and bought tickets for the one-week run in Wimbledon the next day. I just knew this one wasn’t to be missed, I didn’t even know how right I was yet! I am a big fan of the…

Obsession

On Friday I went along to see Obsession at the Barbican, the new interpretation of the 1943 film by Luchino Visconti. Directed by Ivo van Hove and starring Jude Law and Halina Reijn, it was promising to be an interesting evening.  Right off the bat, the size of the stage as well as the simplicity of…

Prurience

Last night I was invited along to see the new experimental play Prurience. I had no idea what to expect, the only thing I knew about it was that it was supposed to be an immersive play about a fictional self-help group themed around porn addiction. It seemed interesting and worth a visit. What followed…

A Door In A Wall – Horses For Corpses

Today I got to go along to A Door In A Wall’s new Horses For Corpses, an outdoor murder mystery set in Stables Market in Camden. It is set up to be a 3 hour adventure in which you follow clues and solve riddles to find out who, why and how. We gathered in the office…
