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. You may remember that I was part of the dynamic duo covering the 2019 ceremony for BWW (and had previously gone solo for […]

2020 mid-year update

  Against my usual penchant for starting off slowly and then steadily heading for entropy, I went straight in at the deep end this year: my first week back in London (& the first full week of the year) was set down as #MindTheMusicals 2020! That means, of course, I began my theatregoing year by […]

Olivier Awards 2020 – nominees

Just like last year, my initial reaction has been largely positive (unlike pretty much anything to do with this year’s WhatsOnStage Awards).

Day 1: Musical choices for 2020

It looks like it’s going to be a bit of a bumper year for musicals, both in London and across the country. The usual big hitters are still around, including the new production of Les Misérables which has recently begun performances at the Sondheim Theatre (formerly Queen’s Theatre), and a few imports will be making their […]

Favourite shows 2019

Whilst I didn’t see as many shows as last year, I don’t think I had quite such a good run of shows in 2018 as I have this year – so making this list was no mean feat. As usual, there were some which were ineligible for the list as I’d seen them last year; […]
