Les Miserables (Queen’s Theatre)

March 11, 2012


I have a bit of a ‘thing’ about long running shows. I’ve seen too many get sloppy, and cheap – once great casts are replaced by mediocre celebrities or casts that are just not up to scratch (don’t get me wrong, I think it’s very hard for any performer to inherit a role in which […]

Singin’ In The Rain (Palace Theatre)

February 19, 2012


Now this is how you do a musical! Here we have three leads who are all accomplished triple threats and a¬†terrific dancing ensemble on a nice big stage.¬†None of the ridiculous ‘name’ casting that’s been going on for too long. ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ is a good, old fashioned musical with great numbers, fun dance […]

Ghost: The Musical (Piccadilly Theatre)

January 12, 2012


I’m not going to lie, I’ve put off seeing ‘Ghost: The Musical‘ as part of me thought a) movie adaptation – blah, and b) Richard Fleeshman?! I’m clearly an idiot! ‘Ghost‘ had me weeping like a baby in the stalls. I won’t lie, I kinda missed some of the action in the opening scene as […]

Chicago: The Musical (Garrick Theatre)

December 17, 2011


I’ve seen ‘Chicago‘ countless times, it’s one of my all time favourite musicals. “Cell Block Tango” is one of the greatest musical theatre songs ever written. ‘Chicago‘ is one of those shows that almost suffers from its own success. It will run come rain or come shine, or come talent or come filler as the […]

Ex (Soho Theatre)

December 1, 2011


A surprise tweet invited me to see ‘Ex‘ at the Soho Theatre, a brand new British musical. I’m the kind of girl who gets all wet at the thought of a ‘brand new musical’, even though those words might induce cold sweats in others. The fact that the show is nearing the end of its […]

Matilda: The Musical (Cambridge Theatre)

November 26, 2011


This slut is pretty adverse to children. They’re noisy, messy and they **** up your hoo-ha! They ruin your life. I’ve seen too many good friends become insane bitches, locked in their own homes, all because the condom broke. So shows that are ‘kids shows’ generally have me screaming in the other direction. Not that […]

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert – The Musical (Palace Theatre)

November 1, 2011


With ‘Priscilla Queen Of The Desert‘s impending departure from the West End, I wanted to swing by and see how the old girl was going, so I invited some of the gals, we wrangled some seats and sat down for what I already knew was going to be a fun evening. My only fear was… […]

Stand Tall (Landor Theatre)

October 25, 2011


I’d heard so many mediocre things about ‘Stand Tall‘ at the Landor that I wasn’t particularly excited to go, but after fighting a cold for so long, I was keen to simply get out of the flat and into a theatre. TFL had ruined by chances of seeing ‘You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown‘ the […]

The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas (Union Theatre)

October 23, 2011


“Texas has a whorehouse in it!” Yes it does! I remember seeing the film version years ago and have never seen the stage version, so I was looking forward to the production of ‘The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas‘ at the Union Theatre. The last time I was at the Union was for the disappointing […]

Soho Cinders (Queen’s Theatre)

October 10, 2011


I went back and forth about going to ‘Soho Cinders‘ for weeks. I’m a big fan of Stiles & Drewe but while the heart said yes, the bank account said no. And I REALLY didn’t want to have opt for the cheap standing tickets at the back. I’m too old for that shit. But, lounging […]
