Aladdin (25/07/17)

Let me tell you a secret: I never had the urge to see Aladdin in the West End, purely because it took over Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre and I feel like Miss Saigon’s revival run was cut way too short. It’s my third favourite musical and it deserves permanent residence in London.…… Continue reading Aladdin (25/07/17)

Let the Spectacle Astound You (06/07/17)

“Eight times? Seriously, eight times? Since when? November 2015? Are you mad?” “… but it’s Phantom of the Opera!” “Isn’t it a little bit boring now?” “No, not at all. No two performances are the same!” “But it’s pretty much the same cast?!?!” It marked my eighth trip to Phantom of the Opera last Thursday. I’m…… Continue reading Let the Spectacle Astound You (06/07/17)

School of Rock (19/03/17)

In the words of Jack Black: I laughed. I cried. I rocked. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! I have never seen anything quite as remarkable as the School of Rock on stage. I absolutely love the 2003 film and I truly thought nothing could do it justice until I saw this production. Confession time: I was a little…… Continue reading School of Rock (19/03/17)

BREAKING NEWS (that really isn’t at all breaking!): This will probably come as no surprise to most of you but I think Phantom of the Opera has taken the number one position of ‘Catherine’s favourite musicals’. I think it may have even bypassed Les Mis and we all know how strong my feelings are towards the French Revolution. I went to…… Continue reading An Amazingly Stressful Day (23/02/17)

Evita (31/01/17)

Don’t cry for me, Argentina. The truth is I never left you. All through my wild days, my mad existence, I kept my promise. Don’t keep your distance. A teeny-weeny confession: I knew nothing about Evita until I went to see it last night. Okay, maybe the tiniest exaggeration; I knew it was the musical that Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina and Another…… Continue reading Evita (31/01/17)

A Heart Full of Love (21/12/16)

How can you see the same show so many times? Doesn’t it get boring? No, no, no. Honestly, every time is sooooo different. But it’s the same story and the same songs? I saw Les Misérables for the ninth time just before Christmas with my wonderful friend, Alice. Alice and I were strolling through Embankment on…… Continue reading A Heart Full of Love (21/12/16)
