Evita

It was as though all other performances of this show that I have seen previously were just a warm-up for this one.

Crazy for You

Crazy for You pays tribute to the glamorous era of the American modern musical of the 1930’s. Not only do the all-singing, all-dancing, and comedic elements of the show demonstrate the uplifting characteristics and charming qualities associated with shows of this time…

Hairspray

Hairspray is one of the few musicals I have seen in which the songs just get more and more impressive, building to the almighty You Can’t Stop the Beat at the end which resulted in what felt like a group disco with 100% audience participation.

A Christmas Carol

I was astonished at how this one man could play every single character so convincingly with the help of just three candle sticks and a few items of clothing.

Follies

Whether it is Sondheim’s music that gives this show its classy touch or that combined with the glamorous costumes, colossal cast and grand set; the whole show feels like a tribute to the Ziegfeld days and the idea of glorifying America.

Grease

Grease is regarded as one of the greatest shows of all time, but for me this particular production didn’t live up to my expectations.

Kinky Boots

In this review I rave about fake bricks and go on a brief tangent about a completely different show, all whilst re-living an experience I had three weeks ago.

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…
