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…

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…

A Comedy About A Bank Robbery

After having seen The Play That Goes Wrong a while back and having hugely enjoyed it, I really wanted to see The Comedy About A Bank Robbery by the same production company, Mischief Theatre. It is currently playing at the Criterion in Piccadilly Circus. The play is a convoluted story about a prison escapee planning a bank robbery, with many mishaps and…

46 Beacon

I was given tickets to see 46 Beacon at the Trafalgar Studios. It played in the smaller Studio 2, which is quite an intimate venue and absolutely perfect for this type of performance. Running just under an hour and a half, the play is performed in one continuous scene with no interval, which works really well as there…

The MMORPG Show

If you’ve never been to see the MMORPG show, you might want to read my previous review of the same, but different as it’s improv, show; the first review does go a little more in depth as to what this us all about. Once again we headed to the Bill Murray pub, where the Angel Comedy Club…

Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead

I couldn’t pass up the chance to see Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly absurdist play. In case you haven’t been introduced to the glory that is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, it is a play about the two minor side-characters in Shakespeare’s Hamlet who can’t quite remember where they came from, just having popped into existence, and…

Don Juan In Soho

I bought tickets to this show months ago when theu were first released and had been excitedly waiting for the big day! I gathered my friends who were attending with me and we climbed the stairs to the balcony. From the first moment, I could see that Patrick Marber’s reimaging of this classic story was…

Trumpageddon

Simon Jay’s one-man-show Trumpageddon sounded too good to pass up, so on a Sunday afternoon I wandered up to Angel and promptly stumbled over the curb and landed flat on my face. Or rather my knees, to be more exact. Great start to the evening, I thought. Ruined my leggings and scraped both my knees open. Brilliant….

The MMORPG Show

The MMORPG Show has snapped up a six month residency at the Angel comendy Club and of course we had to make our way there to witness yet another quest! To preface this, I have seen this show before, several times, and I absolutely love it. It’s different every time as it’s mostly improvised around a set structure, so…

Orbits

The Drayton Arms Pub Theatre was hosting a run of Orbits, a play about larger-than-life German playwright Berthold Brecht and Hollywood star Charles Laughton, following their interactions and struggles while translating Brecht’s play Life Of Galileo. I love the theatre pub culture in London, many smaller pubs have a, usually painted solid black, room for small theatre groups…

Improvised Science Fiction

This show sounded great as described in the Vault Festival program, so I had to give it a go. A Sci-Fi improv show, two of my favourite things all in one! The show started with the three actors asking for suggestions for tonight’s theme; from several shout-out options provided by the audience, Stargate was selected. The three immediately sprung…

Neil Gaiman – Norse Mythology

One of my favourite authors was coming to town, doing some promotion for his new book on one of my favourite themes, so obviously I had to attend! When I heard Neil Gaiman was writing his own version of norse mythology, I was quite excited. I’ve read a lot of different interpretations of norse myths…
