Fanny And Stella

2020 has been an interesting ride so far, but I am very excited to announce that live theatre is officially back! Well. A version of it, anyway… The Eagle Pub in Vauxhall has created a new, socially distanced outdoor theatre space, that is currently hosting a run of Fanny & Stella. Before we get into…

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…

Beauty And The Beast

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…

Sh*tfaced Oliver With A Twist

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…

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…

Derrière On A G String

I was invited to attend the sparkling press night of Derrière On A G String yesterday, so I headed to the Lilian Baylis Studio at the Sadler’s Wells to check out this dance cabaret show. Created by The VERY Top Secret Dance Company, Alfred Taylor-Gaunt’s Derrière On A G String aim to broaden dance audiences…

Sh!t-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,…

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….

Night Of The Living Dead Live

This afternoon I was invited by Love Popups London to attend the 5pm show of Night Of The Living Dead Live at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington. We were treated to premium on-stage platter zone seating, so upon arrival we were outfitted with dark grey boiler suits to cover our clothes with and provide a…

Great British Mysteries – 1599

After having seen Great British Mysteries in their Edinborough previews two years ago (you can check out my review here) I’ve been wanting to see their prequel 1599 since I first heard about it. I finally got the chance when they had a short run at the Soho Theare. Olive Bacon and Teddy Tyrell are…

Vulvarine

After having seen The Talented Mr. Ripley at the Vaults Festival, we stuck around to see Vulvarine by Fat Rascal Theatre. Having seen their previous production of a gender flipped Beauty And The Beast musical, which was one of the most hilarious shows I’d ever seen, I knew I had to see their new production!…
