My first theatre interview of 2018 is here! Despite not including it in my 2018 goals, I would really like to expand what I blog about when it comes to the theatre and interviewing the cast and creative teams behind productions is a wonderful way for me to do this. And a fantastic way for you to get to know more about the shows currently playing all over the country. Electra is playing in The Bunker from 27th February, and I’ve had the fabulous opportunity to chat with DumbWise Production’s artistic director about the show, as well as learning more about the theatre company itself.
When I took my last theatre trip earlier in the month, there were a few things that I noticed that I didn’t like about attending a show. And by that, I mean things that other people were doing. There are a number of bad theatre habits that a minority of audience members have picked up in recent years and I think it’s time to discuss my theatre pet-peeves.
2017 was the year that kick-started my love for theatre blogging, and in 2018 I have some big plans for the theatre side of Essential Twenty. Of course, a lot of my plans are currently a wish list of shows I want to see this year! So if you need some theatre inspiration for the coming year, look no further.
This is a post that I had intended to publish between Christmas and new year, but I took a well-deserved blogging break instead. 2017 was the year of theatre for me. It’s the year I discovered that theatre blogging was actually a thing, and I regret not getting into it sooner. Compared to a lot of theatre bloggers, I didn’t go to that many shows in 2017 and I’m also too indecisive to choose my top shows from last year. Instead, I’m sharing my top 5 theatre moments from last year. But in no particular order, because…well, indecisive.
