School of Rock

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

An Amazingly Stressful Day

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

Okay, maybe the tiniest exaggeration; I knew it was the musical that Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina and Another…… Continue reading Evita

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

Best Birthday at Phantom

I turned 18 on Saturday. Here’s a scary thought: I’m officially an adult everywhere except from the US which is baffling considering I’m one of the most clumsiest and most immature people I know. I still can’t control my laughter when someone says Uranus, I struggle pronouncing my letter ‘R’s’ and ‘Vesuvius’ and I definitely can’t…… Continue reading Best Birthday at Phantom

Sweeney Todd

Bloody LOVETT. Okay, granted. That was an awful pun but Sweeney Todd was amazing at the Derby Theatre on Friday 21st October. And crikey, this is a delayed upload. Sweeney Todd ranks in my top seven favourite musicals after accidentally discovering Johnny Depp as Sweeney on a Film4 preview and pretending I wasn’t watching an 18…… Continue reading Sweeney Todd
