Mother’s Day isn’t exactly my favourite, but the weather was stunning on Sunday and I didn’t want to stay inside and feel mopey, so I asked Leo if we could go out exploring to take my mind off things and boy did that work! Continue reading
As it’s currently #WorldTheatreDay, I thought it’d be fun to write a blogpost all about theatre! If you know me you know I’ll talk about theatre anyway, I feel like recently I’ve literally been living and breathing the theatre lifestyle and it’s something I’m totally okay with. While I live in London and take full advantage of the West End, as of late I’m truly lusting over Broadway…
This show has been in the West End for AGES, and somehow I’ve never been to see the show. Don’t ask my why not, I’ve obviously just been really stupid, because it’s absolutely hilarious and I’m so glad I’ve finally been to see The Play That Goes Wrong, check out my review of the show here! ⤵️
Monday 20th | On Monday the absolute highlight of my day was visiting the Theatre Royal Drury Lane for the first preview of 42nd Street being back in the West End! I’ll have a vlog of that online soon but for now I’ll say it was such an exciting night!
Tuesday 21st | This was a day off where I was able to crack on with editing, and also took a quick shopping trip into Central which was productive!
Wednesday 22nd | My second trip to the theatre this week was to see The Girls at the Phoenix Theatre, again with my theatre buddy Shaun, I feel so lucky to have seen all these shows recently! Sadly on Wednesday there was also the attack on Westminster, but I’m proud of London for being strong and resilient and it makes me proud to be part of this city.
Thursday 23rd | After a short shift at work (albeit early, so I had to take a nap when home ha!) I went to a late(ish) night concert at the Crazy Coq’s venue in Piccadilly Circus to see the beaut that is Rachel Tucker! I haven’t seen her in concert in so long and she’s really in her prime here. More on that in a video soon!
Friday 24th | I managed to film four, yes, four, videos on Friday! 💀 Two of them were little theatre chats for a couple of vlogs, and two full on videos, and the weather was so beautiful in the day I also went for a 3k walk around my area to enjoy the weather!
Saturday 25th | I thought I’d be more productive on Friday night after my walk but it turns out I wasn’t, but I made up for it on Saturday by editing, uploading and scheduling 3 videos on the YouTube. 👌🏼
Sunday 26th | It was Mother’s Day, and I’m not a huge fan of that concept nowadays for obvious reasons. However, we did have a bloody lovely day. Leo took me for brunch, and then we hopped on the tube to Edgware Road, to then walk through Little Venice and Regent’s Canal. We ended up at the pub for a Sunday roast and caught up with a friend, so all in all a good day. 👍🏼
Apologies in advance for just how many vlogs I’ll be posting on here but I’ve been to the theatre so much recently that I’ve almost got too many videos to post! Here’s one of Shaun and I going to see Stepping Out at the Vaudeville Theatre last week, it’s a comedy play starring Amanda Holden and Anna Jane Casey and here’s what we thought of the show! 👯
I get it, you love going to the theatre. Me too! Just like you, I know how pricey it can be if you aren’t savvy about where and how you get your theatre tickets. While I’ve spoken about this topic before on my YouTube channel and this blog, things are always changing, so here’s some up to date info for you! 🎭🎟️
A show I’ve been very excited for is An American in Paris, and last week I finally got to see it! Obviously I vlogged the whole experience and my pal Shaun re-joined me to have a chat about what we thought of the show, plus the obvious influences it had on La La Land, and how this could affect modern theatre audiences.
