Top 10 – Male Theatre Performances 2017

I went to see a lot of Theatre in 2017 so decided that as well as my Top 10 Theatre Shows I would also for the first time ever list my favourite performances from the year. This created some very tough decisions as the level of Theatre in 2017 was very high and managing to pick just ten performances out of the amazing shows I had the pleasure of watching has proven to be very tough!

Stage Door – Christian Slater

After being lucky enough to get a day seat for Glengarry Glen Ross starring Christian Slater I knew I had to try the stage door in an effort to meet the fantastic actor, who was one of my first crushes after being obsessed with Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves!

Christian Slater

Fantastic actor and lovely man, posing for photos and signing autographs with everyone at the stage door.

2017 at the Theatre

This is my overview of 2017 at the Theatre which has been a very special year with plenty of trips to London and even a trip to New York and squeezing in some Broadway shows. All to go along with the trips to Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and the Sunderland Empire to catch the latest UK touring shows.

In 2016 I managed to see 31 shows. In 2017 I managed to see 36 shows! So just beating the 2016 total! You can see a list of all of these shows here. This also included trying to get plenty of deals and really using the day seats to help save money.

#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!

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

May 2017 at the Cinema

Into the fifth month of 2017 and I have managed to increase the number of films I got to see at the cinema back up to 10 this month, which actually includes two National Theatre Live productions of plays direct from the West End.

Cineworld Unlimited Card is £17.90 per month and I saw 8 films that qualified for the month which meant £2.23 per film. I had to pay for the Theatre productions £8.10 each, without an Unlimited card this is £16.99.

I saw the following films in May:

1st – Lady Macbeth – Review

2nd – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Review

7th – Unlocked – Review

9th – A Dog’s Purpose – Review
