If you visit my blog often you may have noticed that I do enjoy going to the theatre and seeing (mainly) musicals but I do get to the occasional play. The list of shows I have seen is now rather long and I am onto my second and even third viewings of certain shows. I have started reviewing the shows I have seen in the past few years, and will continue to do so. I have also listed all of the shows and the years which I have seen them.
