    Knights Of The Rose, Arts Theatre | Review

    Knights Of The Rose | Essential Twentty

    ★★☆☆☆

    I’m not entirely sure what I watched at the Arts Theatre when I attended the press night for Knights Of The Rose, but it wasn’t what I signed up for. Andy Moss and Katie Birtill were so positive about the production when I interviewed them a couple of weeks prior to Knights Of The Rose opening, but did they genuinely think the show they were in was good?

    The King And I, London Palladium | Review

    The King And I | Essential Twenty

    ★★★★☆

    I’m going to hold my hands up and say that until recently I had never seen The King And I, despite it being on Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most popular musicals. It’s a film that my mum absolutely adores, but I’d just never managed to catch it in full. Thanks to London Box Office I was able to catch the Tony Award winning transfer from the Lincoln Center at the London Palladium. Continue reading

    Andy Moss, Knights Of The Rose | Interview

    Andy Moss, Knights Of The Rose | Essential Twenty

    Knights Of The Rose is the latest in a long line of brand new productions to make its West End debut at the Arts Theatre (The Toxic AvengerRuthless). Knights Of The Rose is a classic rock musical of Shakespearean proportions, featuring legendary ballads and timeless anthems from the likes of Bon Jovi, Muse, No Doubt and many more. Last week, I had the chance to speak to Andy Moss (Hollyoaks, Doctors) ahead of the opening of this brand new production.

    Red, Wyndham’s Theatre | Review

    Red, Wyndham's Theatre | Essential Twenty

    ★★★★★

    I really enjoyed the first series of How To Get Away With Murder, and despite never getting around to watching the second (or any of the others), I was eager to catch Afred Enoch’s West End debut in Red. In 2009, John Logan’s play Red opened at the Donmar Warehouse starring Alfred Molina and made a direct transfer to Broadway, winner of six Tony Awards including Best New Play, and earning Molina a Tony nomination for Best Actor In A Play. But until last month, Red had reached the West End. Continue reading

    Chess, London Coliseum | Review

    Chess, London Coliseum | Essential Twenty

    ★★☆☆☆

    When I heard that Chess was making its way to the West End for the first time in over 30 years, I knew I had to be part of this special production. But the English National Opera is notorious for high price tickets (I mean, there are a lot of people to pay at the London Coliseum so it makes sense but I’m queen of the cheap seats usual). Thanks to Today Tix I was able to get a ticket in the dress circle for just £25, making it that little bit more affordable.

    The Ferryman, Gielgud Theatre | Review

    The Ferryman | Essential Twenty

    ★★★★☆

    I’d been interested in seeing The Ferryman since reading rave reviews in the autumn after its transfer from the Royal Court. 3 West End extensions and 3 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, later I had to get around to seeing it before it closed (in just five days time).
