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…

The Slightly Annoying Elephant

In my job as a nanny, I get to see children’s theatre shows quite a bit. This time we went down to the Little Angel theatre to see their production of The Slightly Annoying Elephant, a fun little show based on the same book by David Williams. The Little Angel Theatre puts on all kinds…

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!…

The American Clock

Last night I got to see The American Clock at the Old Vic theatre. The theatre is currently undergoing refurbishments, and I was worried this would impact on the experience, but they were very organised and well prepared. There are currently no loos available in the building, ample temporary facilities on the side of the…

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:…

Rock Of Ages

Since I had never seen the musical production, I was excited to see the UK tour of Rock of Ages when it came around to Wimbledon. The film version was all I had to compare it to, and as cheesy and weird as the film was, I really liked the classic rock vibe of it,…
