Waitress

I booked this musical as an after thought, one of the much hyped productions on the stage in London at the moment, I’d avoided it for a while. But Sara Bareilles pulled me in, she wrote the music and lyrics and I’m a fan of hers. Waitress is based on a book by Jessie Nelson, … More Waitress

In Basildon

It’s not often I’ve been left speechless after the end of a performance. But that was certainly the case with this latest production at the Queens Theatre. In Basildon is part two of the Spring series of plays/shows at this lovely local theatre. I’ve been to a lot of performances here and with the exception … More In Basildon

The set up was different for this production, the stage was in the ’round’ on the floor in the middle … More Violet
