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!…

The Rocky Horror Picture Show – 2019 World Tour

We all know that the Rocky Horror Picture Show is a spectacle not to be missed, so when the 2019 World Tour rolled around to Wimbledon, of course I had to grab a ticket and come along. I mean… it’s Rocky Horror, there’s really not much more to say… if you’ve never been to a…

Grindr The Opera

After having missed its first run, I made sure to secure tickets to the second London run of Grindr The Opera, playing at the shiny Above The Stag theatre in Vauxhall. Grindr is a hilarious pop-style opera about gay hook-up culture, and especially the trappings of the popular app Grindr. Despite its focus on humour…

Company

I’ve never seen Company before, so when it was announced that it’s coming to London with an all new, gender-swapped, updated production, I had to grab tickets and give it a go! The story revolves around Bobby, a career woman who is celebrating her 35th birthday surrounded by all her married friends, most of whom…

We’ve Got Each Other

I only read the advertised summary of We’ve Got Each Other to know that I absolutely had to see this one. It goes as follows: With the modern jukebox musical comes: a multitalented cast, orchestra, opulent sets, decadent costumes, extravagant dance routines, dramatic key changes and the odd hydraulic lift or two. We’ve Got Each…
