The Shadow Factory returns to Nuffield Southampton Theatres after its sell-out run in 2018.
It's the show's 10-year anniversary, and American Idiot is on its UK tour. This week it arrived at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre for a few days, and I was lucky enough to go to the press night to review the production.
2018 was my year of theatre. I don't think I've ever seen so many shows in my life! Here are 10 of my favourite (mainly regional) theatre productions from 2018.
This year's Mayflower pantomime is even better than the last and is definitely one of the best I've had the pleasure of seeing. It is a truly classic production.
Shrek the Musical turns the mixed-up, topsy-turvy fairytale into an all-singing, all dancing musical comedy, with all our favourite characters, jokes, and storylines.
I was swept along by La Traviata and its sumptuous and sorrowful storyline.
A musical that masquerades as a pop concert, telling the stories of each of Henry VIII's six wives? I am THERE.
The English National Ballet has brought Manon to Southampton's Mayflower Theatre for just four days, before it heads to the London Coliseum in January. This production is rarely toured in the UK, and so this really is an exciting opportunity to see something different!
In keeping with the Halloween feel that comes with the end of October, an eerie, dark and unusual show has arrived in Southampton.
I'll be honest, I had no idea what to expect when I sat down in the theatre, but I found myself partying, laughing and even shedding a few more tears than planned at a surprisingly emotional ending.
