Top 10 – Theatre Shows in 2016

Before I get into the list I thought it would be a great idea to mention that you can read about my 2016 Theatre trips here so you have an idea of which shows that I had to choose from when putting together my top 10 list of the year.

When picking the shows that could be in the list, I managed to narrow it down to 16! So then having to make the final pick was rather difficult as that is how much I really did enjoy and love them.

Just missing out on the list was Rocky Horror, Guys and Dolls, The End of Longing and Wicked. It was so difficult to have to leave out No Man’s Land as it was an absolute honour seeing Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart on stage. As well as Nice Fish with Mark Rylance (who is to be made a Sir).

2016 at the Theatre

Here I go with an overview of my 2016 of theatre trips to see musicals and plays. Touring shows that have come to the North East at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle and the Sunderland Empire. As well as managing to have a few trips down to London to take in what the West End has to offer! You can check out the list of shows here. I have somehow managed to out do 2015 catching 31 shows in 2016!

London Trip (4-7th Oct 16)

img_0354_zpsgh0s0nsd

As you probably noticed I went to London for a nice 3 day break last week, mainly because I had tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child something which I had booked nearly a full year before the actual date. I just so happened to book this on the same day that the BFI London Film Festival was going to be on, great timing! My original plan was to stay for 3 nights and get in as many films (and theatre) as possible. But due to cost I changed my mind on this as the hotel was pretty expensive.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

harry-potter-sq1_zpsi4qdjbfj

Recently the talk has all been surrounding the official opening of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Part one and two) in the West End. The first story in the Potter series to be made especially for the stage, while it has been open for well over a month in previews everything has really kicked on over the past week after it is now open! Reviews have been coming out, I haven’t read any yet though.

Then today the play was released I hope people realise it is in play format and not as just a story like the other books. I know the big fans will but I am sure it will catch some people out. J.K. Rowling is pretty awesome releasing it on the date that would be Harry Potter’s 36th Birthday, I saw that on twitter I didn’t just know it I promise!
