Once

20 March 2013, Phoenix Theatre, London Quietly beautiful. Subtly moving. Once won 8 Tony’s last year. It’s a bit of a mystery how it’s not selling very well in London at the moment. I think partly it’s to do with its unfortunate clash with the opening of The Book of Mormon which has gotten the … More Once

A Chorus Line

2 April 2013, London Palladium Makes you really appreciate and respect the hard life of artists. Auditioning relentlessly, putting themselves on the line… It was a fun show. One and I Hope I Get It were two of the songs I first learnt full dances to, so when they performed these two songs, I sat there … More A Chorus Line

The Human Comedy

13 September 2010, Young Vic, London I don’t watch many musicals now… but it’s still the artform that brings me the most feel-good vibes. And it’s actually nice only going to see it once in a while… it feels like a treat 😀 Anyway, this was brilliant! It really gave me the goosebumps. The cast … More The Human Comedy
