Aladdin – Feast Of Wonders

Early this week I headed down to my favourite venue in London, The Vaults, with a few friens to experience the second of th two immersive dining shows currently running there. Aladdin And The Feast Of Wonders is another show created by Darling and Edge, whose previous adult dinner panto Beauty And The Feast I…

Ian McKellen On Stage

Of course as a huge fan, I had to gather some friends and head to see Ian McKellen On Stage. Having seen him on screen, on stage, and in interviews, I knew this would be a great show. Hearing this well travelled, acclaimed actor speak of his life and career was sure to be a…

Big

I got to see Big The Musical in the previews, and while I was quite excited for the musical having enjoyed the movie back in the day, I was a bit unsure of how well it would translate to the stage as the subject matter just aged so horribly bad and might lead to a…

9 to 5

I recently had the chance to finally check out 9 to 5 at the Savoy Theatre. I’ve been wanting to see the Dolly Parton musical sensation for a while as I’d heard so much praise for it since it opened in February, so in September I actually got around to seeing it for myself! I’ve…

Mites

Last night I was invited to press night of Mites, a new play by James Mannion, which is playing at the Tristan Bates Theatre until 26 October 2019. This play comes with a trigger warning for themes of mental illness, paranoia, and “some other distressing themes”. I really appreciate the content warning and hope it…

Derrière On A G String

I was invited to attend the sparkling press night of Derrière On A G String yesterday, so I headed to the Lilian Baylis Studio at the Sadler’s Wells to check out this dance cabaret show. Created by The VERY Top Secret Dance Company, Alfred Taylor-Gaunt’s Derrière On A G String aim to broaden dance audiences…

Funicular Productions – Jewel Of The Empire

Last weekend I was lucky enough to finally attend Funicular Productions‘s show Jewel Of The Empire, I’ve been wanting to see one of these dinner theatre shows for so long! The menu was crafted by MasterChef The Professionals winner Laurence Henry, and the show itself is a murder mystery, everything presented in a fancy train…

Zog Live

Last week I took the children I nanny (2.5yrs and 4yrs) to see Zog Live at the Cadogan Hall. They love the book, so we just had to go see it in the theatre. The story is so charming and cute with a powerful princess at the helm, it’s one of our favourites. The stage…

Dinosaur World Live

A week ago I got to see Dinosaur World Live with the children I nanny (2.5yrs and 4yrs), I had previously seen a similar show a few years back with another charge and it was brilliant, so I was really looking forward to this one. The theatre was very well organised with ample space in…

The Chicago Blues Brothers

On Sunday night, Love Popups London invited me to attend The Chicago Blues Brothers concert at the Savoy Theatre. I’d seen a similar Christmas themed show a few years back, so was looking forward to this one. The Chicago Blues Brothers are a tribute act, bringing the Blues Brothers phenomenon to stages around the country….

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Having seen this two-part play over three years ago during previews, it was high time for another visit to see Harry Potter And The Cursed Child again. So when my friend Joice had a spare ticket for both shows, I jumped at the offer to refresh my memory! I’ll stay away from spoilery territory for…

The Scarecrow’s Wedding

We’re making the most of the summer holidays, so yesterday we went to see The Scarecrow’s Wedding at the Leicester Square theatre, where it plays until the first of September. The story is based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, and though I usually love these books, this particular story isn’t one…
