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…

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…

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

We (my two charges, 2yrs and 4yrs, and myself) really enjoy Little Angel Theatre productions, so when we hard they were doing one of our favourite books, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, we just had to grab ourselves some tickets and go! As always in their main theatre, it’s a bit awkward with seating….

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…

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….

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…

Monstersaurus

Yesterday I headed to White City with the children I nanny to see Monstersaurus at the Troubadour theatre. The kids are 2.5 and 4 yrs old and love going to the theatre, so this seemed like an exciting adventure for the day. After a sunny day with occasional showers spent playing and exploring new playgrounds…

Where Is Peter Rabbit?

Recently, I got to attend Where Is Peter Rabbit? at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the West End. I took along two young children, 2.5 and 4 yrs old, to see how they would engage with the show. The theatre had a large stack of booster seats available at the auditorium entrances, so we grabbed…

The Gruffalo

On Friday, I got to see The Gruffalo at the Lyric Theatre with the two young children I nanny. It’s the latest production of Tall Stories, a registered charity organisation that puts on beautiful shows for children of all ages. The Gruffalo is recommended for ages 3+ and if you like the book, you will…

Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

As I had never seen it on stage before, I jumped at the chance to see Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for it’s new London run. I bought tickets for the first preview night, grabbed a friend, and off we went. I was very curious to see how much this musical was updated and…
