Review: A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Bridge Theatre, London

On 9th August I found my way to the Bridge Theatre to see A Midsummer Night's Dream. I was desperate to see this play, mainly due to Gwendoline Christie's casting, and I'm so glad I got to go before it closed. I was interested in this play partially due to the theatre. Having seen a …

Review: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium

On Wednesday 24th July my mum and I went to the London Palladium to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. A classic musical, neither of us had seen a professional production, even though I had been in a production as a child! I was quite impressed with the production. The musicians were fantastic and …

Review: Six at the Arts Theatre, London

I finally got to see Six in June with my sister and I really enjoyed it! This musical is fun, glittery and full of attitude, and definitely makes for a great night out. The cast of Six are incredible. I was really impressed with Courtney Stapleton; although I had seen Megasixes before, I hadn't really seen …

Review: Showstopper! The Improvised Musical at the Other Palace, London

I was lucky enough to get to see Showstopper! The Improvised Musical at the Other Palace on 7th March. The premise of the show is that every show is based off of audience suggestions, so no two shows are the same. I was incredibly impressed with the cast. Improv is a difficult skill to master, …

Review: Ian At 80 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London

On 7th March I was lucky enough to go to Sir Ian McKellen's celebratory birthday tour 'Ian at 80' at the Duke of York's Theatre. The show isn't just a show, it's an exploration of Shakespeare, stories from Sir Ian's youth and two hours of fun. The first half is filled with Sir Ian talking …

Review: Rock of Ages at the New Wimbledon Theatre

On Thursday 28th February I found myself at the New Wimbledon Theatre to see Rock of Ages. I booked this quite spontaneously and had no clue what would happen, which I think was a fantastic way to experience the show. The show was not exactly what I expected, more of a Rocky Horror vibe than …

Review: Dracula at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley

On Wednesday 17th October, I ventured out to the Churchill Theatre to watch a new production of Dracula. Billed as a multi-sensory experience rather than just a play, I was definitely incredibly intrigued by this production. However, I wasn't really expecting much. I was so wrong. This production was so good! When I heard it …

Review: The King and I at the London Palladium

In earlier in July, I took my mum and sister to see The King and I. First performed in 1951, this production features Kelli O'Hara, Ken Watanabe and Naoko Mori. This production is only playing until September, so we were lucky to get tickets! I didn't know anything about the production, but my mum loves …

Review: Great Expectations at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley

On Tuesday 29th May, I went to see Great Expectations at the Churchill Thetare in Bromley. The play was a retelling of Dickens' classic, and starred Nichola McAuliffe. The casting of Nichola McAuliffe was a major push in the marketing, and was one of the reasons I went to see the play. The idea of …

Review: Remembering Fred at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley

Last night I went with my parents to see Remembering Fred, a show celebrating the life and achievements of Fred Astaire. The show featured Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara from Strictly Come Dancing. I went in expecting this to be a couple of hours of solid dancing, and so was pleasantly surprised when the show …
