The Twentieth Century Way

The Jermyn Street Theatre is one of those London locations that’s well known and well hidden. It’s a small theatre on Jermyn Street, just one small room with a few rows of seats. I heard about The Twentieth Century Way from an acquaintance and had to check it out myself. It’s a play about gay…

F*cking Men

This one brought me back to one of my favourite locations in London, The Vaults under Waterloo station. It’s such a quirky, interesting location that hosts so many fascinating fringe shows throughout the year and of course also hosts the fantastic Vaults Festival. When I heard about F*cking Men, a play about the relationships of…

A Christmas Carol The Musical

We travelled all the way to the LOST Theatre to see their production of A Christmas Carol – The Musical. Seeing A Christmas Carol in one for or another seems to have become a Christmas tradition of mine but I hadn’t yet seen a musical version on stage yet. As this production was relatively small,…

Buried Child

When I had the chance to see Ed Harris in Burried Child, I jumped at the opportunity. Especially because I love the Trafalgar Studio as a venue, it has great seating and a good view from most seats. When the auditorium was opened, Harris already sat on the sofa on stage, wrapped up in a…

The Adventures Of Dick

I am not very familiar with the whole panto culture, so decided to give the filthiest panto in town a shot. I’m generally not a fan of mindless comedy and stereotypical tropes, so I was skeptical. The story of Dick takes place in Soho-ho and pits the heroes against the evil queen who wants to…

Santa’s New Sleigh

In my daytime life, I am a nanny for a 3yr old girl. I was invited to take her and a friend of hers (as well as another nanny and a mommy) to see Santa’s New Sleigh, a small Christmas performance upstairs at the Arts Theatre. The children were very excited, doors opened quite late…

Lazarus

As a casual Bowie fan, I jumped at the opportunity to see Lazarus when it played in London in a purpose built temporary pop-up theatre.We got seats at the back of the stalls ans were very excited to see the show. Michael C Hall is starring as the main character and the musical is a…

The Shakespeare Revue

I found out about the Shakespeare Reviee through the posters at Richmond Theatre when I visited for another theatre production. I was intrigued and got myself and a gew friends some tickets. The show is based on the original Royal Shakespeare Society production and is an absolute riot! From the first skit to the last song, this show…

Fool For Love

Surprisingly, I had never heard of the Found111 venue, so it was a bit of a challenge to find. We kept walking past the door, which is very clearly marked, so I’m not sure how we kept missing it. Our lost wandering did lead to a fun chat with the door security person though, so…

Half A Sixpence

I had the chance to see this musical with a few friends, and as I love musicals, I was quite excited to go. I’d never seen the film nor read the novel this was based on, as such I had few expectations. Little did I realise this would be such a bland, trope-laden, old fashioned…

The Dresser

I was lucky enough to be given a free ticket to see Ronald Harwood’s beautiful play The Dresser at the equally beautiful Duke of York’s theatre. The story unfolds mostly in a dressing room inside a provincial theatre and focuses on Sir, an old and frustrated Shakespeare actor touring around the countryside with a rag…

The Entertainer

I had seen other Branagh Theatre productions before and loved them, so I had no reservations about seeing John Osborne’s post-war play. With Kenneth Branagh as the leading man in this turbulent story about family ties, cultural adversities and a crumbling culture, this should have been a convincing and enjoyable play; yet it falls way…
