#LoveTheatreDay

As you are well aware I am a huge fan of going to the Theatre, catching my favourite actors on stage and the occasional stage door visit as well. This year I have managed a lot of touring UK shows, many visits to the West End in London and an incredible trip to New York for some amazing Broadway shows. Nothing better than watching live acting and singing before your eyes in some beautiful Theatres!

#LoveTheatreDay

This is being celebrated on Twitter and really is fantastic to find amazing posts from performers and shows as well as fans!

Garrick Theatre: Young Frankenstein

I couldn’t resist taking plenty of photos of the theatre in all its green glory and posters with great production shots of the cast. This first one from across the road took many attempts with buses spoiling the shot! This was the best that I could manage really and it isn’t fantastic but it was the best I could do!

7 Reasons You Should See Young Frankenstein the Musical

event_media-banner_lrg_zps0s17y0oe

I was lucky enough to get to see this incredible show three times when it held previews in Newcastle, I fell in love with the show and thought I would put together a list with some reasons why you just have to see it in the West End. It opens at the Garrick Theatre tonight for previews.

I don’t really remember a musical really pushing itself on TV shows like this one has to help raise awareness and publicise the show. Something that I think it just wonderful, more shows should do this like they do with films and having the actors talk about it. I would love to see more shows follow this lead to really get Theatre out more on prime chat shows!
