Sh!it-faced Shakespeare – Hamlet

I’ve heard a lot about the Shitfaced Shakespeare shows, but am usually unable to attend them as they are set to start a little earlier than most shows in the West End and work keeps me from making it in time. I’ve previously seen the offshoot Oliver With A Twist and thought it was very…

Dark Sublime

Last week a friend invited me to see Dark Sublime at the Trafalgar Studios with her. I’ve been wanting to see this as it caters to my sci-fi geekdom, so was very excited to tag along. Dark Sublime follows the story of Marianne, an actress struggling to make ends meet, and her superfan Oli. Oli,…

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…

Present Laughter

I read about the announcement of a new production of Present Laughter At The Old Vic, starring Andrew Scott and Indira Varma, directed by Matthew Warchus. It soundes intriguing, and I love seeing Andrew Scott on stage, so I grabbed a pair of tickets and headed off to the Old Vic on Monday the 24th….

Colab Theatre – Spy City

Having previously attended Colab‘s The Swell Mob and The Copy Cat, I was very excited to be invited by Love Popups London to try out their newest adventure, Spy City. So we headed down to London Bridge on a sunny Saturday afternoon to try our luck at being super secret agents. We first arrived at…

Orpheus Descending

Last night I had the chance to see Orpheus Descending at the Menier Chocolate Factory. The play by Tennesse Williams went through many re-writes and short productions since it was first written in 1940, called Battle Of Angels at the time. I hadn’t ever read or seen the play before, so went in with little…

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

When I heard that the same team that created the promenade experience of Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre were putting on a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I just had to grab tickets for the first preview to experience it for myself. While I feel calling this immersive theatre is a bit of…

The Tales Of Peter Rabbit And Jemima Puddle Duck

For the May half-term, Wilton’s Musical Hall put on a junior classical production of The Tales Of Peter Rabbit & Jemima Puddle-Duck, so I took along my two little charges to see the show. Touted as a classical concert for young children, this production really went out of its way to make this a great…

Scripts For Supper – The Wind In The Willows

A friend of mine who knows how much I love dinner theatre recommended Scripts For Supper to me, their current production is The Wind In The Willows, so I grabbed a friend and a couple of tickets and off we went. This production of Scripts For Supper happens at three different city farms in London,…

Lola’s Underground Casino

On Tuesday night I was invited to check out the press night of Lola’s Underground Casino at the Hippodrome. The downstairs bar has been newly outfitted with a large, curved screen behind a raised stage and the Lola team are promising “extraordinary performances more easily seen than believed” as well as a “groundbreaking new theatrical…

Everyone’s Talking About Jamie

I’ve been wanting to see Everyone’s Talking About Jamie for a while, but never got around to it. Finally, a friend took it upon himself to queue up early in the morning to grab day seats for us, so I joined him in the evening to see the show. The musical is inspired by the…

American Idiot

I saw the West End run of American Idiot a few years back at the Arts Theatre and wasn’t impressed. I liked the story and of course love the songs, but the cast just didn’t work for me. But when the 10th anniversary tour rolled around to my neighbourhood, I decided to give it another…
