Masterclass (Vaudeville Theatre)

January 29, 2012

0

A Tony Award winning play about a famous diva – sign me up. I’d previous had to turn down tickets to see the current revival production of ‘Masterclass‘ at the Vaudeville, a situation that really, really bugs me (I hate to let tickets go to waste), so when _______ invited me to a matinee I […]

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 […]

Noises Off! (The Old Vic)

January 6, 2012

Have you ever been involved in a touring theatre production? Or, heavens forbid, a spot of am-dram? Well, no surprises here I guess, but in my younger days I was involved in more than a few productions. Some which went on for months, and much like the scenario in ‘Noises Off!’, showmances fell apart, so […]

Gross Und Klein (Big And Small) (Sydney Theatre Company)

January 3, 2012

I took time out from my busy schedule of drinking, eating and laying on the beach to catch some local theatre in Sydney, Australia, with a handsome man I met in a bar. I mean, how could I resist seeing Cate Blanchett in the lead role (in a production that will come to the Barbican […]

Chicago: The Musical (Garrick Theatre)

December 17, 2011

0

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 […]

A Round-Heeled Woman (Aldwych Theatre)

December 4, 2011

Wow, another last minute phone call and an invitation to see a play I’ve never heard of, but dinner and a show gets me out of the house every time. No expectations, some red wine and seats in Row G – a perfect addition to my Friday night I thought. I was a little worried […]

Ex (Soho Theatre)

December 1, 2011

0

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 […]

Hamlet (Young Vic)

November 27, 2011

0

The website warned me: “When coming to see Hamlet, you’ll find a new way into the Young Vic. Please arrive at the main box office 30 minutes before start time to experience this different route, which is fully accessible.”  “Oh lord!” was my first reaction, is this meant to be some ‘immersive’ (ie intrusive) experience? Thankfully no, […]

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 […]

My Big Gay Italian Wedding (Above The Stag)

November 18, 2011

0

______ had warned me in advance that ‘My Big Gay Italian Wedding‘ was not “high class theatre, dear”. He didn’t lie. MBGIW is crass, loud, borderline offensive and at times, hilariously funny – kinda like watching “The Only Was Is Essex” I guess. The scene is set from the moment the bell rings in the […]
