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….

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…

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…

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,…

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…

The Flying Bath

I love to take my charges to the theatre, so am always on the look out for their age group. The Flying Bath was listed at 2-5yrs and thus seemee perfect! Based on the book by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts, it’s a very simple and cute story, adapted to a fun bath time adventure…

Hair – 50th Anniversary Tour UK

While having seen the film about a million times and listening to the soundtrack up and down, I’ve never seen Hair live, so definitely had to change that when the 50th anniversary tour came around to Wimbledon! I was aware that the stage version differs from the film in that it has less of a…

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!…

Frankenstein – Beatbox Academy

Last night I went to see Frankenstein, how to make a monster, by the Beatbox Academy, at the Battersea Arts Centre. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I’m not a fan of hip hop in general, but I went in with an open mind. What struck me first is that the Battersea Arts Centre…

Big Fish

After having seen the European premier of the Broadway production of Big Fish in 2017, I heard there was a new production of the musical at the Stockwell Playhouse. As it was a brilliant musical, and based on one of my favourite films, I couldn’t miss the chance to see it again, even if it…

Dead Ringer For Love

After recently having lost the wonderful Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical in the West End, I found out about a new, small production called Dead Ringer For Love. As I was really missing hearing all the songs belted out on stage, I snagged some seats for this Meatloaf and Cher tribute show. Note:…
