    Making Repeat Visits to Shows

    Making Repeat Visits to Shows | Essential Twenty

    Whilst I’ve never been asked this myself, I know a lot of people who have been asked why they have seen the same musical or play more than once. Now I try not to make repeat visits to show, simply so that I can broaden my theatre knowledge, but there have been a couple out there that I have made second (or third or fourth) trips to because I enjoyed them so much. And the reasoning for this varies from show to show.

    Matilda The Musical UK Tour, Milton Keynes Theatre | Review

    Matilda The Musical UK Tour, Milton Keynes Theatre | Essential Twenty

    ★★★★★

    Matilda The Musical will always hold a special place in my heart because it was the last theatre trip I had before I went to uni. A couple of days before moving north, Mum and I spent the day in London and ended it with a trip to see the show at the Cambridge Theatre, and I loved it. I’ve been meaning to return ever since but it’s never really worked out for me, until it went on tour.

    Supporting Shows & Actors Beyond The Obvious | Essential Twenty

    If you’re a theatre fan, it’s very easy to get yourself caught up in a certain show, cast or individual actors. Believe me, I’ve been there (especially with the original London cast of The Book of Mormon). But sometimes you find yourself wanting to support them a little more, and there are loads of easy ways to do this.

    Affording Theatre: How I Do It

    Affording Theatre | Essential Twenty

    A lot of people in my life, whether it’s my work colleagues, family or people on the internet, ask me how on earth I afford going to the theatre as much as I do. Whilst I shouldn’t have to justify how and why I spend my money on what I do, I know that some people want to know how I manage to get to as many shows as I do. Affording theatre is never going to be cheap, but there are always get arounds! Continue reading
