Those of you that read my interview with Paul Stevens, will know that True Colours enjoyed a short 2-night run at the Hope Theatre. I was able to make the final night (on Monday), and it was well worth crossing London for. True Colours is a comedy, something that is landed quickly and effectively within … Continue reading True Colours at The Hope Theatre
Last week I was lucky enough to see Mouthpiece at the ever vibrant Soho Theatre. There is so much I want to say about this show, but it is packed full of surprises and I'd hate to spoil it for first time audiences. As a result I find myself being deliberately vague. So here is … Continue reading Mouthpiece at the Soho Theatre
Image source: Almedia website Hello all, I'm back in the theatrical saddle again after a long break (reasons for this will be the subject of a separate post) and it feels great. As is often the way, after a long period of no theatre, I had two shows booked in on consecutive days (not to … Continue reading Previews, glorious previews!
Images courtesy of LAPA Last night I was invited to the press night of The Greater Game. Having already interviewed a lot of the cast, including the playwright, I felt nervous. What if I didn't like it? Well I needn't have worried, it was wonderful. In a way that only a play that reduces me … Continue reading The Greater Game review
Image Courtesy of LAPA Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to Leyton Orient Stadium to have a chat with the cast of The Greater Game. Their rather unique rehearsal space is an old changing room in the stadium, and I was there on their 3rd day of rehearsals. I got to see … Continue reading The Greater Game Cast Interview Part 1
In May I wrote a theatre FOMO post, talking about the shows I wished I could be seeing but would sadly be missing. In that same spirit I want to talk about the Trafalgar Studios, which seems to be mopping up the cream of the crop of smaller space transfers. There is definitely magic in … Continue reading Is there magic in the water at the Trafalgar Studios?
As my theatre going has slowed to a dribble (to translate - this means I still go more often than the average person, but I'm no longer attempting a financially unsustainable, paid critic level of theatre attendance) I've not been blogging as regularly as I used to. Something I'm looking to remedy starting from now! … Continue reading My transfer-tastic recommendations
I've been wanting to write this post for a few days, but I've had to take some time to sit with it, so I could identify why I was so blown away by this play. As a result, you have only 6 performances left before this extraordinary show closes at the Park Theatre this coming … Continue reading Reasons to see Schism at the Park Theatre
When it comes to booking theatre tickets I'm a bit of a control freak. For my favourite venues I have definite seating preferences that combine my desire to be as close to the stage as possible, and ticket prices (for some venues the front row is cheaper, or you can nab a bit of a … Continue reading The best seat in the house
Last night I scored a cheeky ticket to the press night of 3 Women at the Trafalgar Studios 2. Cheeky because I really wanted to see this show, so I asked if I could come and review it and they very kindly said yes. Why did I want to see this show so much? It … Continue reading 3 Women at the Trafalgar Studios
