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…

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…

Luck be a lady tonight, luck be a lady tonight, luck if you ever were a lady to begin with… la la la. In all seriousness though, Guys n Dolls at the Savoy Theatre will leave you humming all the way home. The story line is classic, Nathan Detroit is in need of money for…
