History Boys at the Churchill Theatre

As part of the #LDNTheatreBloggers I know how great it is to meet with other theatre fans at blogger meet-ups and I was very lucky to be invited to the Churchill Theatre on Monday for another! Big thanks to Holly and the gang down there who put on a lovely…

Immersion Theatre’s Wind in the Willows

I remember reading Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows and falling in love with the cute, funny animal characters as a child. With Immersion Theatre you are lucky enough to fall in love with Mole, Ratty, Mr. Toad and their friends all over again in this wonderfully quaint piece of…

Miss Saigon is still the West End’s dreamland

Boublil & Schönberg’s Miss Saigon has firmly settled back into the West End and is still bringing audiences to their feet (and me to tears) night after night. Thanks to the lovely people at Seat Plan, I was lucky enough to see the show for the fourth time from the…

An interview with Sam Haughton: death by milkshake

Avenue Q: the internet is for blogging

Cards on the table: I have seen Avenue Q far too many times already. I will average a guess at eight visits both professional and amateur, but nothing was going to stop me going to see the current UK tour from Sell a Door Theatre Company. I don’t know what…

Songs from the Shower: the guilty (and absolute) pleasure

From the word go you can’t deny that this clever show, the brain child of drunken ramblings between star Sam Haughton and co-writer/director Claire Rivers, does exactly what it says on the tin. I wasn’t sure what to expect when first stepping into the London Theatre Workshop in Fulham but…
