I mentioned in my post yesterday that I would be talking to people in the entertainment industry about how they are managing now, why creativity is important and what they are doing to keep arts and culture available to us during this time. Ben Adams, British singer, songwriter, producer, creator of Eugenius and member ofContinue reading “@benadamsuk talks to us about the importance of creativity and how he is working to support his fellow actors as well as bring some joy to us all”

Review: 5***** Miss Saigon Norwich Theatre Royal @MissSaigonUK @soohakim23 @chuckmarbella @TheatreRNorwich

#Tweetingit – 5***** Wow, simply amazing! Powerfully emotive, energetic and sensitive – Miss Saigon has it all. Last night I attended the press night of Miss Saigon at Norwich’s Theatre Royal and honestly I was so impressed with everything – from the singing to the set design.  Having never seen the show, but knowing aContinue reading “Review: 5***** Miss Saigon Norwich Theatre Royal @MissSaigonUK @soohakim23 @chuckmarbella @TheatreRNorwich”

Review: 2** The Yellow Wallpaper – Omnibus Theatre @Omnibus_Theatre

The marketing for this show is a striking image of an agonised figure reaching through a yellow wall, I was therefore quite ready for an atmospheric piece and a sense of ominous danger. The production is based upon an original short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, published in 1892. We are introduced to the sarcasticContinue reading “Review: 2** The Yellow Wallpaper – Omnibus Theatre @Omnibus_Theatre”

Review: 4**** Fusion Theatre’s Stories from Around the World at Islington’s Pleasance Theatre  @thelondonfusion @TanyaChainey @ThePleasance

There’s always a certain amount of trepidation when one takes a four-year-old to the theatre.  A darkened room filled with strangers is not their usual environment. This means there is always a considerable risk that you will be the parent dragging a fractious, bored, crying pre-schooler across everyone’s eye line to prevent them spoiling theContinue reading “Review: 4**** Fusion Theatre’s Stories from Around the World at Islington’s Pleasance Theatre  @thelondonfusion @TanyaChainey @ThePleasance”

Review: 3*** The Poetry We Make – The Vaults @VAULTFestival @_flugelman

#Tweetingit –  3*** has its moments but over-elaborates a simple concept i.e. that it’s ok to be different. Interesting use of a Dolly Parton though. The Vaults at Waterloo have been quietly building a reputation for daring and innovative theatrical productions. Buried deep under the railway arches, it is well named as a maze ofContinue reading “Review: 3*** The Poetry We Make – The Vaults @VAULTFestival @_flugelman”

Review: 5***** The Band The Marlowe Theatre Canterbury @TheBandMusical @marlowetheatre @garybarlow

  #Tweetingit – 5***** a nostalgia-fuelled show, filled with Take That hits, and a touching, tear-jerking, comical and highly entertaining storyline about friendship, loss, and fandom – what more can you possibly want? Firstly – this is a long review. If you get to the end, thank you for your Patience. “Another Jukebox musical? PleaseContinue reading “Review: 5***** The Band The Marlowe Theatre Canterbury @TheBandMusical @marlowetheatre @garybarlow”

Review: 2** Gallowglass – Norwich Theatre Royal – @MGTheatreCo @TheatreRNorwich

  From the pen of one of the world’s greatest thriller writers, Ruth Rendell (writing as Barbara Vine), comes a tale of kidnap and murder (eventually!). When Joe was saved from the path of a London tube, it wasn’t without consequence – his rescuer, Sandor, told him “your life belongs to me”. Taking advantage of Joe’sContinue reading “Review: 2** Gallowglass – Norwich Theatre Royal – @MGTheatreCo @TheatreRNorwich”
