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!

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.

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!

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!

#LoveTheatreDay

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