Legendary musical theatre writer Stephen Sondheim has passed away at the age of 91! He dared to be different and pushed musicals to a totally new level and in a different direction. I have been lucky enough to see Sweeney Todd, Follies, Company and Gypsy on stage! All utterly breathtaking and timeless, he was also part of West Side Story, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods and more.
His musicals will last forever and his legacy will never be matched. Rest in peace.

On September 11th 2001, so many people innocently went about their normal morning routine before heading to work on what was a very normal day having no idea the tragedy that was about to come. In New York City a plane hit one of the twin towers and the world watched thinking it was a truly terrible accident until a second plane hit the second tower and it was clear that America was under attack.
As a 14 year old I can still remember coming home from school and seeing the news as the plane hit the pentagon and the fourth was “brought down” we later found out about the heroics of those on board United 93. Going to school the following day in an English lesson we talked about it with newspaper reports, all struggling to understand it.
In all honesty even now twenty years later I still cannot understand this truly tragic and horrendous day, which then turned to weeks, months and years of grief for so many people. The brave emergency service workers doing their duty and not really having any idea what exactly was happening.
Over the past few weeks I have found myself watching so many documentaries about this day and the true amazing moments of human courage to help save others, it really has been an emotional journey to see and hear about more stories from this day.
Forever rest in peace to all those people from around the world who were impacted on that day and still now.
At dinnertime today Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Philip had passed away at the age of 99. I felt I needed to post a tribute to the man who was married to the Queen for over 75 years which is just incredible. My thoughts go out to our beloved Queen and the rest of the Royal Family at this very sad and difficult time.
