    Dreamgirls

    Dreamgirls | Essential Twenty

    Despite being a lover of musicals, Dreamgirls was a film that passed me by. All the music I’d heard from it wasn’t really my cup of tea (apart from One Night Only – that song is fab), and even seeing Beyonce absolutely smash Listen when she performed on the x factor all those years back didn’t sway me. However, I was a huge Glee fan back in the day so for £23 I had to see Amber Riley perform and see what all the fuss was about surrounding Dreamgirls.

    5 Happy Things

    5 Happy Things | Essential Twenty
    I’m currently without a laptop, and I don’t think you quite understand how much of a blogging funk I am in because of this. Then again, chances are you are a blogger and understand exactly how this is hindering my blogging life. Sure, I’ve been speeding through various seasons of TV shows and smashing my high scores on various games on my iPad, but my blog life has taken a bit of a back seat. Since I’m without my monster blogging spreadsheet (should’ve backed it up on dropbox – I’ll learn one day) which has enough content ideas to blog daily until November, I’m throwing out this spontaneous post. A ‘five happy things in my life’ style post.

And I want to share my tips on how to get cheap theatre tickets with you! Spoiler: on the five shows I’ve mentioned I spent less than £100, so you’re looking at less than £20 per ticket which is a steal when you know which seats to book!

    The Comedy About A Bank Robbery Review

    A Comedy About A Bank Robbery | Essential Twenty

    A few weeks back I went to the theatre for the first time in AGES. It almost breaks my heart how long it’s been since I was sat in the stalls of a West End theatre! I’ve now set myself a goal to see at least one show a month. That can be West End, touring or even AmDram; I just want to immerse myself in the arts more! Give me musicals and plays, I don’t care. I just want live theatre in front of me! In May, I managed to pick up a fourth row seat to The Comedy About A Bank Robbery for £13 (see how in my previous theatre post) so it would’ve been rude not to!
