Crisis, what crisis?

Last Friday, I got to check out the new Parabolic Theatre production of Crisis, What Crisis?, taking place at the Colab Factory, which has by now become a somewhat familiar venue. This interesting immersive experience lets you try your hand at running the government, of sorts. Set in 1979, the Labour Government has a working…

Silence Will Fall – Colab

The night before Halloween I was invited by Love Pop Ups London to attend Colab‘s newest production Silence Will Fall at the Colab Factory. Silence is advertised with: This Halloween, investigate the mystery of the Southwark Murder. Join Rev. Stanley Park as you unravel the secrets of a hideous murder in the vain hope of…

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…

Aladdin – Feast Of Wonders

Early this week I headed down to my favourite venue in London, The Vaults, with a few friens to experience the second of th two immersive dining shows currently running there. Aladdin And The Feast Of Wonders is another show created by Darling and Edge, whose previous adult dinner panto Beauty And The Feast I…

Ian McKellen On Stage

Of course as a huge fan, I had to gather some friends and head to see Ian McKellen On Stage. Having seen him on screen, on stage, and in interviews, I knew this would be a great show. Hearing this well travelled, acclaimed actor speak of his life and career was sure to be a…

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…

Red Palace

On Sunday evening I returned to one of my favourite venues, The Vaults, to take part in Shotgun Carousel‘s newest production, the Red Palace. I’ve visited a few of their previous productions and loved every single one, so really looked forward to getting to experience this one as well. The menu was created and executed…

Variant 31

On Saturday evening I headed up to central London to give the newly opened Variant 31 a whirl. They’ve had a lot of technical issues and opening date delays, and reviews of the preview dates were extremely mixed, so I was looking forward to finding out for myself what this new London attraction is all…

Mites

Last night I was invited to press night of Mites, a new play by James Mannion, which is playing at the Tristan Bates Theatre until 26 October 2019. This play comes with a trigger warning for themes of mental illness, paranoia, and “some other distressing themes”. I really appreciate the content warning and hope it…

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….

A Deadly Dose

On Friday night, Love Pop Ups London invited me to come along to the Play Dead London and Daggers Productions one-night-only Victorian murder mystery A Deadly Dose. Fittingly held at the Victorian Operating Theatre, which is a gorgeous museum near London Bridge and always worth a visit, we climbed the narrow staircase to help solve…
