2018 at the Theatre

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!

Top 10 – Theatre Shows in 2017

I had such an incredible year at the theatre (2017 at the theatre) that putting together this top 10 list of shows that I managed to see has been very tough! I was lucky enough to see many UK touring shows, West End and this year Broadway as well. All of which are fantastic experiences and I actually managed to see a lot of new shows to myself and some favourites all over again, the thing with Theatre is that with musicals and plays the productions can be slightly changed which gives you a brand new way to watch it!

A reminder of my year at the theatre, check out all of the shows I managed to see on stage during 2017!
