Further thoughts after seeing Annie…

Today  I wanted to talk about something which became apparent to me whilst watching the show but that didn’t really fit into the review that I wrote last week…

Annie

Conclusively this piece is well done, but for me it didn’t feel as original as I’d hoped it would. I had Imagined that seeing it on the West End would change my opinions- that it would be packed with more ‘oomph’, yet I came away feeling pretty much the same as I did when I saw the tour two years ago…

Carousel

In my opinion it was a beautiful piece of theatre which was very well executed…

Billy Elliot

The dancing completely blew my mind, not only from the young boy that played Billy, who was absolutely stunning, but from the entire cast as well.

Wicked

Sometimes a show affects me in such a way that I feel as though a force is pulling my body forwards, as though I want to get as close to the stage as possible. It’s like I’m a marionette and invisible strings are gently tugging my body.

The Wind in the Willows

When I heard that The Wind in the Willows was going to be made into a musical I was excited. When I heard that The Wind in the Willows was going to be made into a musical and that Julian Fellows was writing it, I was ecstatic.

TheatreCraft

“You can’t download theatre.” A simple phrase that was rewarded with a sea of heads nodding in appreciation during the opening speech given by Adam Kenwright; executive Vice President of the Ambassador Theatre Group, and the TheatreCraft 2016 Ambassador.   On Monday 14th November I had the fantastic experience of attending TheatreCraft: London’s biggest careers…

The Last Five Years

As the familiar opening bars of the music started and the auditorium fell into silence, I felt chills creep up my spine as Samantha Barks walked onto the stage to sing the opening number.

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins is the most magical show I have ever seen. It’s not often that I actually cry during a show, but during the course of watching this production I found myself unable to see properly through my watery eyes.

The Sound of Music

A new and fresh adaptation of the original Rogers and Hammerstein musical. This world-renowned production, which tells the heart-warming story of the Von-Trapp family during the Second World War features the much loved songs Do-Re-Mi, My Favourite Things, and So Long, Farewell.
