If you follow me over on Twitter, you will know that I recently went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London’s West End. There are 2 main things which I love and they are Theatre and the Harry Potter series. So what could be better for a Harry Potter Theatre geek like myself? I loved the 2 part show and here is a review of what I thought. I will try and keep this as spoiler free as possible as I know many of you are planning on going to see the show.
Theatre Show Reviews
Every year I try to head to the Pantomime, and this year was no different. I know that I am 20+, but I still love going to the Panto with my family and just having a giggle. This years Panto was Dick Whittington at Birminham Hippodrome. A Little About Dick Whittington Dick Whittington is a panto which I had never seen before, nor did not know what to expect from the story. The story follows a man called Dick Whittington who is just an ordinary guy who wants to be Lord Mayor of London and marry Alice (the daughter of 2 […]
Where do I start with The Lion King? I am completely speechless after watching this wonderful show! Back in July, I found out that my boyfriend had arranged for us to go down to London to see a show which I longed to see, The Lion King. I actually cried with joy when I found out as it has been a show which I wanted to see for many years.
This was the second time I saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the Theatre and it was brilliant! As soon as I saw it advertised, I knew I had to book to see it again. It has always been one of my favourite go-to pick me up movies along with Mary Poppins, which I also wanted to see again, but unfortunately it was sold out. When it was announced that Lee Mead (who I saw in Pantomime at the beginning of the year) and Carrie Hope Fletcher would be staring as Caractacus Potts & Truly Scrumptious, I was thrilled. Carrie is not […]
For my birthday this year, I went to see Mamma Mia at my local theatre, Birmingham Hippodrome. I loved ABBA growing up, so knew I had to go see Mamma Mia when I had the chance. I knew a lot about Mamma Mia before seeing the show as I had seen the movie, which is quite frankly scary at times. No other reason than some of the shocking singing voices.
If you like a more serious musical (sometimes funny in places) with big hits in abundance, then you’ll love Jersey Boys. The show explains the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, from where it all started to how it all started to fall apart. The show is full of action and is gripping from the beginning. With their big hits all the way through the show, it is a great link to see their music alongside what they were going through in their personal lives at the same time (which can be very sad at times).
The Book of Mormon first arrived in London’s West End in early 2013, after being a huge success in New York’s Broadway.The show has had mixed reviews over the years in the West End, but is still highly popular. When I went to see the show in July 2015, there wasn’t a spare seat in the audience (from what I could see anyway). The show is controversial to say the least and is very rude in places (a lot of places).
I have finally seen Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and my-oh-my it was AMAZING! For years now, My Mom and I have wanted to see Joseph as I have grown-up loving the songs after listening to the CD my Mom had (and still has). My Mom is a big Jason Donovan fan and since he played the roll of Joseph in the 90s, my Mom has always said this is one of the shows she would love to see. Then one day last Winter, I got an email from Wolverhampton Grand Theatre to say they were going to release the […]
For many years I wanted to see Wicked, and I can tell you when I finally got to see this show I was not disappointed. I feel really lucky that Wicked went on tour, and I was even more luckier that we managed to get tickets for the show around my birthday. Wicked first came to London’s West End in September 2006, and a few of my friends in my Drama class in school had been and told me how great it was. I was so jealous and kept asking if me and my family could go to London to see the […]
This production first arrived in the West End in October 2011 and has won numerous awards. First of all, I went into this show with no real expectations and was very glad I went to see it. The show has some amazing songs in it by Tim Minchin which really capture the mood of the production and has amazing choreography alongside it. The show was really well thought out from beginning to end and held another story within the story of Matilda (one of Miss Honey) which we never saw in the 1996 film; which I won’t go into as […]
