& Juliet: Theatre Review

I don’t write theatre reviews for everything I see but I felt compelled to write one about & Juliet because a new, original West End musical doesn’t open very often and because I want to urge you all to see it too.

Ian McKellen is an absolute sweetheart and a national treasure

Last night, I went to see Ian McKellen on Stage – the one-man show that is currently touring the U.K. The show was extremely enjoyable, but I was more in awe of the man himself.

True West: Theatre Review

I first saw Kit Harington on stage in 2016 in Doctor Faustus, which I didn’t really enjoy, but it was hard to say if that was down to the Game of Thrones star or the weird adaptation of the source material. Anyway, I decided to give him another shot when True West was announced, because it’s a play by the late Sam Shepherd and his co-star is Johnny Flynn, who was fantastic in Beast.

John Boyega in Woyzeck: Theatre Review

As a fan of Star Wars and therefore John Boyega, I had to go and check out Woyzeck, which is currently showing at London’s Old Vic. He puts in a decent performance and proves he can do stage acting too but I wouldn’t recommend the play itself.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Theatre Review

I don’t always do theatre reviews because I don’t really consider myself well-versed in this area but I know a good performance when I see one and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? boasts not one but four. So of course I had to write a gushing post.

Speech and Debate: Theatre Review

Patsy Ferran, Douglas Booth & Tony Revolori

I bought tickets to Speech and Debate solely because of Douglas Booth but during the show, I soon forgot about him in favour of Patsy Ferran, who was the star of the show.
