EQUUS

Another Facebook Ad, another play booked. This was a play I knew very little about, in spite of it being a famous story, but, I prefer not to know too much about what I’m going to see so I can form my own opinion. This was my first visit to the Theatre Royal Stratford, in … More EQUUS

Admissions

This was my 5th visit to the Trafalgar Studios, it’s becoming a favourite venue. Admissions is being performed in Studio 1, I really don’t think there’s a bad seat to be had. I was quite high up, but had a great view. I went into this one blind, just reading a little of the blurb … More Admissions

Kiss Me Quickstep

This was the first of 3 performance at The Queens Theatre in Hornchurch, their Spring season gives the opportunity to see three plays/shows for just £46. The theatre was transformed into a Blackpool ballroom, with audience seats at the back of the stage forming part of the audience in the story. This is a tale … More Kiss Me Quickstep

Violet

An ad came up on Facebook for this show, Violet. I’d seen 2 other productions at the Charring Cross Theatre and loved them! It’s an intimate venue which means you’re never far from the action. The set up was different for this production, the stage was in the ’round’ on the floor in the middle … More Violet

Company

This is running at the Gielgud Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue, that’s an indication that this show is a big deal. Based on a 1970 musical comedy with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by George Furth. The original production was nominated for a record-setting fourteen Tony Awards and won six. This second West … More Company

Caroline or Change

My Monday evening theatre trip took me to the Playhouse Theatre to watch this musical. Luckily this is a theatre I’ve been to a couple of times, I left my phone at work so had no instructions to follow. Annoyingly I couldn’t keep track of the distance I walked either. My seat was in the … More Caroline or Change

La Traviata

When is a live performance not a live performance? Can I claim a live screening in a cinema as one such? Well, La Traviata was really quite amazing so I’m going to, I just have to write about it! The Royal Opera House amongst others have a Live Cinema Season – those to come are … More La Traviata

Leave To Remain

A trip to Hammersmith for this one, a theatre I’d never been to, The Lyric. When I set off on my journey from Essex it seems a long way away, but with 2 lines heading straight to Hammersmith from Liverpool Street, the journey was a smooth one, an opportunity to read one of my Christmas … More Leave To Remain

Pinter 5

I booked Pinter 5 after I got home from watching Pinter 6, having been flummoxed by Pinter 1 I’ve become a bit hooked and will have seen 6 of the 7 in this series and I’ve only just discovered the reasoning behind the series – Pinter at the Pinter is part of the Pinter 10 partnership with the BFI, The … More Pinter 5
