Here we have the winners of the 2022 Olivier Awards, celebrating the best of West End theatre. Have to admit that considering I had a ticket for Cabaret before Christmas and it was when the performances were being cancelled, makes me even more sad that it has won so many awards.Read More »
You may (or may not) remember a blog post I put together back in 2017 about West End and Day Seats (read here) when I went to London last week, eventually and to return to the theatre I had actually wondered if Covid would put a stop to this and box offices not opening early to be able to get cheaper last minute tickets direct from the theatre’s box office.
However, I did not have to worry about that. when TodayTix had a few different deals on what they list as Rush Tickets (hello Broadway words coming into the West End). Which is the same thing as day seats, all you need to do is download the app from the App Store and they go on sale at 10am which was always the time the box office opened for the same reason. These are £25 per ticket on the app and the options to buy are for 1 or 2 seats, because I go alone a majority of the time wanting only one single seat works out very nicely that is for sure. But for that price it wouldn’t really matter if you went with someone and didn’t sit together would it?Read More »

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!
The nominations for the 19th WhatsOnStage Awards have been announced and the ceremony will take place on 3rd March 2019.

After seeing Orlando Bloom on stage in Killer Joe, what an experience. I managed to get to meet him at the stage door as well!
My teenage dream certainly came true! My Legolas and Will Turner!!!
I received an email about this play yesterday and I am now frantically wondering if I can manage to get a trip to London to see it. Running from 2nd October 2018 until 1st December 2018. With two truly incredible actors leading it! I have always wanted to see Jonathan Pryce on stage and I am hoping this will be the show I get to see him in.
Trying to decide which seats to buy before you head to the Theatre can be a pretty difficult task, especially if you have never been to that theatre before. SeatPlan can certainly help you out with that! Updated with photos and reviews from people who attend different theatres for different shows and posting them to help others out.
