In The Heights @King’s Cross Theatre, 15/04/2016

At the back of King’s Cross station is the potentially coolest theater I have been to in London. King’s Cross Theatre currently hosts In The Heights and Railway Children. The stages are set unlike any other theater. The old rail tracks form the middle and stage of the theater, while the platforms on either side of the tracks host the seats. Maybe it was because … Continue reading In The Heights @King’s Cross Theatre, 15/04/2016

Show Boat @New London Theatre, 13/04/2016

Show Boat is the first musical ever staged. So to see it put back on a stage almost 90 years later and still be as powerful and amazing, was truly a treat. The show premiered on Broadway in 1927 and tells the story of freedom and love. The storyline is set in America’s Deep South at the turn of the 20th century when river boats … Continue reading Show Boat @New London Theatre, 13/04/2016

Bend It Like Beckham @Phoenix Theatre, 01/02/2016

Can we all agree that the 2002 movie with Keira Knightley is one of the best things to come out of the naughties besides Britney Spears? Even 15 years later I very much enjoy watching it. So how bad could a musical version really be? I honestly did not know what to expect. Let me tell you – Bend It Like Beckham is one the … Continue reading Bend It Like Beckham @Phoenix Theatre, 01/02/2016

Wicked @ Apollo Theatre, 01/10/2015

Wicked, Oh Wicked! Absolutely, magnificently mind-blowing! It deserves all the praise it has gotten and more. It is by far the best thing I have seen in the West End, scratch that, the best thing I’ve seen full stop. If you’re like me, and you like yourself a bit of Oz then this is the musical for you.

Mamma Mia! @ Novello Theatre, 29/09/2015

It’s ABBA time! Everyone knows the songs, and you can’t help but sing along, let’s be honest. To start off, I wasn’t a big fan of the movie Mamma Mia, it was just a bit too over the top and ridiculously badly acted. So, I wasn’t too sure how I was going to feel about the musical, it was not on my to-see list. Let’s … Continue reading Mamma Mia! @ Novello Theatre, 29/09/2015
