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…

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.
