School Of Rock

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…

Mary Poppins

My favourite Christmas present was a set of tickets to see the West End production of Mary Poppins, which I’ve been itching to see! I went to see it in February on my birthday and took another nanny friend to see it with. I’ve loved the old film as well as the new Mary Poppins…

The Wolves In The Walls

Though I was not in the company of children in the appropriate age range, I really needed to experience this one! Another play based on the work of one of my favourite authors, not something to be missed. So I grabbed a friend and headed out to see The Wolves In The Walls at the…

The Snail And The Whale

Just before my Christmas holiday, I got to take the kids I nanny to see The Snail And The Whale by Tall Stories. We’ve seen another of their shows earlier in the year and absolutely loved it, so we were looking forward to seeing one of our favourite book brought to life. To frame the…

Escape From Planet Trash

On Thursday I was invited to the press night of Pleasance Theatre and SinkThePink’s Escape From Planet Trash, a new space musical filled with drag queens, giant turkeys, heaps of trash, and lots of Christmassy goodness. Sounded just camp enough to be right up my alley, so I dragged a friend along to check it…

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…

The Bed

I recently headed back to the Little Angel Theatre with one of my charges, the two year old, to see The Bed, toddler version, this time at the studios, with I prefer to the actual theatre venue. This venue has some play areas available for children before the show, and the audience is only lead…

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…
