Trailer: Hamilton on Disney+ #Hamilfilm

Disney+ have decided to give everyone a lovely teaser by releasing a new trailer for the up and coming Hamilton show that will be on from 3rd July. I have seen the show in the West End and looking forward to watching it again. I got more into the music after seeing the show, which I feel often happens as sometimes when you listen to a soundtrack for a musical first you aren’t often sure which characters are singing which parts and don’t get the story.

This is going to be absolutely massive in terms of number of views and will become the most watched thing on Disney+ in record timing!

Poster: In The Heights (2020)

The teaser poster has dropped for the musical event of 2020 when In The Heights will be released in cinemas. It is a truly incredible musical which I have been lucky enough to see on stage twice.

The first time was on Broadway the night before it won the Tony Award for best new musical! Before Hamilton we had this truly incredible show and I am so please it has been made into a film, I like it better than Hamilton in all honesty! Lin-Manuel Miranda is a genius.

2018 at the Theatre

Here we go with my run down of everything I managed to catch at the Theatre in 2018, this includes plenty of UK Touring shows coming to Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and the Sunderland Empire. I squeezed in a few London trips and even another New York trip thanks to my marathon place!

In 2016 I managed to see 31 shows. In 2017 I managed to see 36 shows. My total for this year 2018 was 26 different shows. Not as many as the previous two years, but still a very impressive number. Check out which shows here!

Hamilton Ticket – Disappointment

When I was starting to write my review for the show I ended up getting into small rant about the ticket I had bought so I thought it was best to write a separate blog post about it.

View from Seat
View from Row D seat 9 – Acceptable for £89.50?

The prices were crazy and I’m actually outraged that I paid £89.50 for a seat that was actually a restricted view, who even decided that? I couldn’t see many of the things happening on the right side of the stage which I think for that price and not to be told that it was restricted is actually a disgrace. I obviously didn’t anything whilst inside the theatre as didn’t want to be that person considering it would be the fault of the people working as ushers.
