My take on Flashdance at Milton Keynes Theatre
I originally went to see Aladdin back in April and I think it's fair to say I wasn't too impressed with the show. My main bug bear was with the leading man, Dean John Wilson, who I just didn't think was strong enough to carry this show. Unsurprisingly, Dean John Wilson wasn't even with the … Continue reading Street Rat Matt – London’s New(ish) Aladdin
We all love a wonderful Disney film and everyone has their favourites. When you're having a sick day everyone has a go to Disney DVD that they will whack on for comfort. However that is a movie... With the announcement of Frozen - The Musical making its way to Broadway I think now is the … Continue reading Is Disney Going too Far?
I must confess I don't know much about Cilla Black. I remember watching her on Blind Date every single Saturday with the family. Sat around the TV with my dinner on my lap. My family hated it, but they tolerated it because I loved it so much. That's about as far as my Cilla knowledge … Continue reading Looking Back at Cilla Black
When there’s a cast change at Wicked, that’s obviously my cue to go and see the show another two or three times to see what they’re like. As explained in my previous post, Alice Fearn is Elphaba, Sophie Evans is Glinda and Bradley Jaden is Fiyero.

Although I have no idea if they're even friends, I'm going to assume they are... like a world famous posse of ridiculously talented individuals who only wear pink on Wednesdays (if you know you know). He's been teasing his … Continue reading Sam Smith – Too Good at Goodbyes and Just Too Good!
It's a comfort for theatre bloggers to be able to start off a little piece of writing by introducing the show with character introductions and a basic storyline. Unfortunately for me, the title pretty much does half of my job for me. This play is what it says on the tin; it's a comedy about … Continue reading The Comedy About a Bank Robbery – My Verdict
Grease is easily one of the best known musicals; full of catchy songs, a gorgeous man and a beautiful girl with their eccentric friends who all conveniently seem to fall in love with one another. It's a warm, fuzzy dream of a musical that no one can deny has one of the best wedding sing-a-long … Continue reading Grease – Wrapped Up in Trouble
A lead leaving their role in the West End is always an upsetting yet exciting time. More often than not, you're saying goodbye to an incredible lead and welcoming in the unknown. However, when six people leave their roles on the same day it makes for an interesting adventure. On Saturday 22nd July, Wicked said … Continue reading Six Out, Six In – The New Cast of Wicked
