  • REVIEW: The Case Of The Frightened Lady | Leeds Grand Theatre

    July 27, 2018

    I don’t think I’ve ever been more confused than when I sat in the theatre for The Case Of The Frightened Lady. The curtain came up and the show began with no music or warning. I guess when you’ve spent the vast majority of your life watching and participating in musical theatre, the silence of…

    April 19, 2018

  • Leave Fear At The Door

    February 3, 2017

    Anxiety can be a royal pain in the bum! I think we can all agree on that. It can be an even bigger pain in the bum when you’re a performer; when your sole living relies on being able to hold yourself together when under pressure or when nervous. My anxiety constantly holds me back,…

    September 24, 2014

    It’s a Tuesday night… You’ve finished your day at the office and you head into Central London where you meet up with a friend you haven’t seen in years.

  • Forbidden Broadway, The Vaudeville Theatre

    September 15, 2014

    Thursday 11th September, I was lucky enough to see ‘Forbidden Broadway’ at the Vaudeville Theatre in London. Not normally a show I would choose to see, but rather watch on Youtube, I was sceptical as to how funny the show would be. Would it live up to expectations or crash and burn? When I was…

    May 28, 2014

    On Friday 23rd May I arrived at GLive in Guildford, by myself, to watch the touring production of ‘Charlie F’.
