A man who is good with his words may find his way to many a woman’s heart; unless, in Cyrano De Bergerac’s case, his face is less pretty than the phrases he turns.
This isn’t an exhaustive list, and I’ve probably forgotten a few shows, but here are some of the TV shows, films and theatre screenings I’ve been enjoying during lockdown.
Last weekend I made my first trip to Chichester Festival Theatre; a venue I’ve wanted to visit for a while!
My excuse, finally, was to review A Monster Calls for Broadway World UK, which I had heard good things about and had volunteered to watch.
Thanks to this seasonal spectacular, Winchester’s streets are most certainly paved with gold.
Hello all. Yes, that’s right, another theatre review, and this time it’s a festive one; and there’s a bit of a twist!
Andrew Scott seems very much the man of the moment, both on screen and on stage. Before he was the Hot Priest in Fleabag, he was the unnervingly charming-yet-sinister Moriarty in Sherlock. You may also have spotted him in Black Mirror, Pride and His Dark Materials.
But enough of me listing his filmography; I’m not IMDB.
No, you’re not mistaken; I have actually published a blog post – for the first time in a while!
It’s been two months since I did my last Monthly Muses post. I’ll give you the usual excuse; life has been busy. No, I mean it. It’s been really, really busy.
Last weekend I had four shows in a row; this means four late nights, four ways of saying a show was good (or bad!), and four more programmes to add to my collection. It was intense, and tiring, but so, so worth it!
It’s incredible how one woman on a bar stool can captivate an audience for almost two hours solid with just pure and simple storytelling, no props and minimal sound effects. It’s a testament to Waller-Bridge’s performance, which has the audience in limbo somewhere between heartbreak and hilarity.
NTLive brings a new, dystopian interpretation of Macbeth from the stages of London to our very own cinemas.
