2BDCA3A9-2954-42A9-B853-778C499296E8

One of my all time favourite actors recently announced a truly incredible tour, a one man show on stage with Sir Ian McKellen taking us through his career and treating us to his most known and loved characters. He is turning 80 in 2019 and has decided to go to 80 different venues across the UK.

Tickets for Newcastle at the Theatre Royal went on sale this morning at 9:00am and by 9:02am I had front row tickets, this was the friends of the theatre pre-sale and they are selling out very fast!

Theatre: Layton Williams cast as Jamie New!

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has taken the West End and musical theatre world by storm since debuting in Sheffield before transferring to the London in November 2017. I was lucky enough to see this fantastic show in January 2018 and totally loved it. Since then it has gone from strength to strength extending the booking period and a live stream to the cinema.

Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein – Original London Cast Recording

61VO9yswTdL._SS500

On Friday morning something truly fantastic happened and the Young Frankenstein London Cast Recording was available on iTunes and I therefore bought it straight away. It had felt like a long wait when this was all first mentioned months ago and we were told it would be out in July, but throughout July and no sign of the recording it looked as though it would just randomly appear one day. Which is exactly what ended up happening!

SpiceUp London: The Spice Girls Exhibition

When I found out that a huge Spice Girls exhibition was going to be happening when I was already going to be in London I jumped at the chance to get tickets. Why not a nice throwback to the 90s and how different everything was back then, but also to actually remember just how huge The Spice Girls really were and the legacy they left behind with the rise of Girl Power!

Located right in the middle of plenty of West End’s theatres, this cafe is a must visit for all musical theatre fans. Constant show tunes being played, reasonably priced coffee and other hot drinks all with Stagey names as well as stagey cups! See the Bat out of Hell the Musical cup in the photos! I just so happened to be sitting at the Wicked table, I seriously couldn’t have time it any better!
