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

Jersey Boys @ Picadilly Theatre, 06/04/2016

You know all those songs you love from Dirty Dancing? Yes, Frankie Valli is your man. Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons to be exact. They are the Jersey Boys. Jersey Boys is a jukebox musical telling us the story of Frankie and The Four Seasons, their rise to fame and their falling apart. Frankie is a young boy in Jersey whose voice is unlike … Continue reading Jersey Boys @ Picadilly Theatre, 06/04/2016

At The Bar of A Tokyo Hotel @ Charing Cross Theatre, 04/04/2016

I’m definitely not the best to review a play, I enjoy them, but I don’t know much about the background skills of it, so I’ll give you the low down, but the actual critics might think differently. At The Bar Of  A Tokyo Hotel is a classic by the wonderful Tennessee Williams and Linda Marlowe stars in the main role. Charing Cross Theatre is small but … Continue reading At The Bar of A Tokyo Hotel @ Charing Cross Theatre, 04/04/2016

The Painkiller @The Garrick Theatre, 15/03/2016

If you like slapstick and you like Rob Brydon, this play is for you. For a limited time only The Painkiller runs at The Garrick Theatre as part of their Kenneth Brannagh season. The basic storyline: contract killer meets suicidal divorcee. Sounds funny? It is! The set is split into two hotel rooms and the cast consist of only a handful of people. Sean Foley … Continue reading The Painkiller @The Garrick Theatre, 15/03/2016

Sunny Afternoon @Harold Pinter Theatre, 01/03/2016

Oh this is definitely one of my favorite musicals so far. I love The Kinks, and the 60s in general. You can’t listen to Sunny Afternoon or Waterloo Sunset and not want to sing along or dance. The musical is all about the back story of the brothers from London. How The Kinks became such a success and all the events leading up the summer … Continue reading Sunny Afternoon @Harold Pinter Theatre, 01/03/2016

Guys n Dolls @ Savoy Theatre, 24/02/2016

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 an illegal dice game that he has to keep hiding … Continue reading Guys n Dolls @ Savoy Theatre, 24/02/2016

Hand To God @Vaudeville Theatre, 18/02/2016

Comedy is a funny thing, literally and figuratively. You never know if someone else will find the same thing as hilarious as you do, especially when you cross cultural boundaries. I have learned from living in different countries, humor can be very different and it can be difficult to explain a joke that’s laugh-out-loud funny in your language to someone in another language or from … Continue reading Hand To God @Vaudeville Theatre, 18/02/2016

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

Red Velvet @The Garrick Theatre, 28/01/2016

I will happily admit I don’t know as much about acting as I might do about music but I can without a doubt say that Red Velvet at the Garrick Theatre is truly triumphant. The story is inspiring as much as it is based on a true story. In 1833 Ira Aldridge is brought to London’s Covent Garden to replace Edmund Kean who had collapsed … Continue reading Red Velvet @The Garrick Theatre, 28/01/2016
