The nominations were announced yesterday for the 2019 Olivier Awards which are taking place on Sunday 7th April 2019, at the Royal Albert Hall.
I have just set up a lovely new email address which I feel is much better for myself and the site!
If you would like to contact me for any reason then please use this new email address, I still have my old ones running but I will be looking to transfer across to this one!
I would love to receive:
- Screeners to review
- Theatre tickets to then review the show
- Invites to cinema screenings
- Information about new films
- Possible sponsors
- Advertisement enquiries
Some wonderful theatre news the fantastic Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has announced it will embark on a U.K. tour in 2020! Currently booking in the West End up to September 2019.
Always a fun and enjoyable task is looking back at everything I managed to see at the theatre (read this) during the course of a year and putting together my favourite 10 shows! It becomes increasing difficult each year and that is only a good thing as just shows that the standard of theatre is so high!
Here we go then my 10 favourite shows of 2018 . . .
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 Boss aka Bruce Springsteen took his performing to a different level during 2017 and 2018 as he performed on Broadway. This recording is the final performance of the shows run, completing 236 shows.
The nominations for the 19th WhatsOnStage Awards have been announced and the ceremony will take place on 3rd March 2019.
