This is a list of the shows that have really stuck with me right to the end of the year; the ones that still pop into my head when I think of 2019's highlights; the ones I would urge you to see if you get the opportunity in 2020.
Ladies, gentlemen, and those who haven’t made their mind up yet…you are in for one hell of a ride! This is a production with both soul and sole.
Many of us grew up watching puppets on screen who helped us to navigate the world and learn our ABCs. Now that we're adults, we're still learning, but there are seemingly no friendly, furry friends to offer advice and amusement. Except...there are. And they live on Avenue Q!
The classic story has come to life, leaping from the page and onto the stage and bringing all the magic of Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake with it, and a few new treats to boot.
Prepare yourself for a night unlike any other; this show will haul you onto your feet and make you weak at the knees, and leave you wanting more, more, more, more!
Jersey Boys has swaggered onto the stage at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre, ready to transport us back to the sixties; to the heyday of classic rock ''n roll and the giants of the airwaves.
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.
A musical that masquerades as a pop concert, telling the stories of each of Henry VIII's six wives? I am THERE.
