Cruella is a live action film that is a prequel to One Hundred and One Dalmatians as we see the story of a young girl named Estella who does not have a straight forward start in life. Wanting to be a fashion designer she competes with The Baroness and Cruella de Vil is released.
So we have the trailer for the latest live action make the bad person look good film from Disney with Cruella. The worst thing is I am such a huge fan of Emma Stone (the rest of the cast is impressive as well) and then I just think this looks utterly pointless. Cruella DeVille wanted to kill puppies to make coat, I mean how is that going to be turned around or even approached?
Although I guess we can just assume that it will all be because a man broke her heart like in Maleficent right?
I place myself firmly on the fence whether I will actually watch this or not, I mean the more interesting thing will be if it goes straight to Disney+ and how much you will have to pay to watch it.
Always a fun and enjoyable task is looking back at everything I managed to see at the theatre (read this) during the course of a year and putting together my favourite 10 shows! It becomes increasing difficult each year and that is only a good thing as just shows that the standard of theatre is so high!
Here we go then my 10 favourite shows of 2018 . . .
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!
Annouced this afternoon are the 2018 Olivier Awards recognising some of the amazing productions and performances over the past year! I have been lucky enough to see quite a few of these productions as well!

After being totally blown away by John McCrea as Jamie New in the fantastic new musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie I just had to head around to the stage door to try and meet the star. It wasn’t a very long wait and he was just lovely! Signing my programme and posing for a picture.
