A Very Very Very Dark Matter

Being in lockdown due to the corona virus pandemic, I thought I’d use the time to work on my backlog of shows I never got around to review back when I actually saw them. I just don’t always have the time to write reviews right away and sometimes they just fall into an eternal backlog…

Twist And Turn

Being in lockdown due to the corona virus pandemic, I thought I’d use the time to work on my backlog of shows I never got around to review back when I actually saw them. I just don’t always have the time to write reviews right away and sometimes they just fall into an eternal backlog…

The Adventure Is Real

On Thursday night I was invited to try out the new immersive game by The Adventure Is Real, a combination of roleplaying games, boardgames, and immersive theatre. It was a whirlwind of an adventure to get through, and we had a whole lot of fun with it. Thanks for the invite, Love Popups London. When…

Cyrano De Bergerac

I got to see the new production of Cyrano De Bergerac during the previews and even got a seat upgrade for the evening. It’s such a well-known story that’s been done so many times, I was quite interested in seeing how this adaptation differed and if it would take things in a different direction. The…

Crooks 1926

Last week I was invited to come along to Colab Theatre’s newest production, Crooks 1926. This immersive theatre project takes us back to 1926 to be thrown into the seedy underworld of London’s crime gangs and their territorial rivalries. Crooks 1926 is staged at the Colab Pub, a short walk from both Borough and Elephant…

Come From Away

I’ve been wanting to see Come From Away for months and finally got the chance to grab some discounted tickets to see this sensation of a musical. So I grabbed a friend and headed down to the Phoenix Theatre to see what the fuss was all about. Played through in one act, this 90 minute…

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…

Frankenstein – Beatbox Academy

Last night I went to see Frankenstein, how to make a monster, by the Beatbox Academy, at the Battersea Arts Centre. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I’m not a fan of hip hop in general, but I went in with an open mind. What struck me first is that the Battersea Arts Centre…

Admissions

I was lucky enough to snag a ticket for Admissions at the Trafalgar Studios through a friend who wasn’t able to attend anymore. I had been wanting to book seats for this new play, so was very happy to take the offered ticket. Admissions is a new play about diversity and privilege. Sherri, played by…

The Great Gatsby

I had heard a lot about The Great Gatsby immersive experience, so I grabbed three friends and we headed out to try it out for ourselves, dressed to the nines and ready to party with Gatsby himself. Upon arrival we were greeted and introduced to the general proceedings of the evening, and then immediately thrown…

Aliens Love Underpants

I got to go to a daytime performance of Aliens Love Underpants at the Underbelly Festival for work, which is always fun. I really like this silly children’s book, so I was very curious to see how they translated this to a stage show. I was accompanied by a 4yr old, so this was the…

Shiny New Blog!

Shiny, shiny, shiny! This site needs content… which it will get with time, promise. I’ll also go back and write reviews about events I attended but never wrote much about if I feel they really should be on here. Anything posted before this blog post is written up after the blog was created. Confusing? Nah,…
