    Degrees Of Error: Murder She Didn’t Write, Leicester Square Theatre | Review

    Murder She Didn't Write | Essential Twenty

    I’ve never seen improv comedy before. In fact, I’ve never seen anything other than improvised dance before, so when I found out Mischief Theatre (the creative geniuses behind The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery) were going to be going back to their improv roots over Christmas I was eager to see them. But I didn’t manage to get to the Arts Theatre to see them during that period I was really disappointed. But thankfully an invite landed in my inbox to see a 5* sold out Edinburgh Fringe show that’s been playing select dates in London. That meant I had my bum firmly in a seat at the Leicester Square Theatre to see Degrees of Error’s Murder She Didn’t Write on Sunday, and I can’t believe I didn’t go sooner.

    Eugenius, The Other Palace | Review (Closing Night)

    Eugenius, Closing Night | Essential Twenty

    I’m writing this far later than I had planned. I mean, I attended closing night over two weeks ago! But after a knockout run at The Other Palace, I had to discuss what I thought about the cult favourite Eugenius. This is one of the hottest new shows that the theatre community cannot stop talking about, and had an almost unheard of number of sold out shows during its 6 week run. Unfortunately I was busy for most of the run, but I made it to closing night after hearing weeks of raving from the theatre community, and I wanted to throw my thoughts into the ring.

From Manchester tryouts, to the London Coliseum and onto Toronto, Bat Out Of Hell is back in the capital at the Dominion Theatre for audiences to enjoy all over again. And this girl right here was invited to the press launch earlier this week. I know!

    Pippin, Southwark Playhouse | Review

    Pippin, Southwark Playhouse | Essential Twenty

    It’s been a long time since I went to the theatre and smiled as hard as I did when I was at Pippin over the weekend. Transferring from Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester (somewhere I’m hoping to take a trip to this spring to finally see Spring Awakening), Pippin is playing at the Southwark Playhouse for four weeks only. Well now you’ve only got a couple of weeks to get your bums there and I’m going to tell you exactly why you need to take the trip.

    Hedda Gabler, Milton Keynes Theatre | Review

    Hedda Gabler UK Tour 2017/2018 | Essential Twenty

    I love a press night. Okay, so I’ve only been to two before (The Railway Children and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) because getting to London after work is a nightmare, but I love the glitz and glamour of an ATG members room. On Tuesday I was invited to the press night for Hedda Gabler at Milton Keynes theatre, and jumped at the chance to see this sold-out National Theatre production on tour during its final few weeks.
