Olivier Awards 2020

Whilst I have enjoyed my break from almost full-time theatregoing over the past few months, one of the cancelled events I was really gutted to miss out on was the Olivier Awards.

Wish list: National Theatre At Home

Following on from the instant success of the first National Theatre At Home streaming event on Thursday night (Richard Bean’s One Man, Two Guvnors, starring James Corden), it’s got me thinking about all the other wonderful NT Live screenings that I’d love to come to the small screen as part of this series.

My favourite shows of 2014

This has been a ridiculously difficult list to come up with, considering the fact that I went to see 34 different shows last year (63 trips in total)… There are 12 months in a year, so I’ve collated my top 12 shows of 2014. Let’s start the countdown, shall we? 12. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels I […]
