I’ve decided that it’s about time I give a round up of my month, because I don’t do too many life lately posts. Here I can share my favourite things that have happened throughout the month, and share which shows I’ve managed to get to (especially as it can take a little while for me to get around to reviewing them fully). Just a little update at the end of each month to talk about my life, and indulge in what’s going on around me right now, and what’s coming up in April.
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.
Back in the day I was an active member member of the tumblr musical theatre fandom. Over the few years that I spent my life on there I discovered some killer shows that I’m dying to see in person, and that’s what today’s post is all about – shows I wish would transfer to the West End so I can spend all my hard earned wages on them! These are all shows that are yet to hit the West End, rather than shows that would be a revival so expect to see some lesser known shows here.
