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.

Hamilton Ticket – Disappointment

When I was starting to write my review for the show I ended up getting into small rant about the ticket I had bought so I thought it was best to write a separate blog post about it.

View from Seat
View from Row D seat 9 – Acceptable for £89.50?

The prices were crazy and I’m actually outraged that I paid £89.50 for a seat that was actually a restricted view, who even decided that? I couldn’t see many of the things happening on the right side of the stage which I think for that price and not to be told that it was restricted is actually a disgrace. I obviously didn’t anything whilst inside the theatre as didn’t want to be that person considering it would be the fault of the people working as ushers.
