Spamalot – Monty Pyton

15th Oct, 2008 |

If you are a Monty Pyton fan then you should go to watch Spamalot. Spamalot is lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Pyton and the Holy Grail and is a new musical directed by Mike Nichols. And honestly, it has nothing to do with Spam!!

It is side grippingly funny, that even when I went (and was not in a particularly good mood) left with my sides aching from the silliness! This was a year ago and I still smile when I think about it. I would happily watch again.


Phantom of the Opera

9th Oct, 2008 |

The Phantom of the Opera is one of the best Musicals ever. If you have not seen it, then you must make a point of going. If you only ever watch one show on Broadway / in the West End, then it really should be The Phantom of the Opera.

It is known for being the World’s most haunting Love Story. (Don’t take your girlfriend there if you don’t want her to fill up with wedding ideas – Just Kidding!)

It is an Andrew Lloyd Webber production which opened today 23 years ago and is still going strong, which goes to show just how good it is. It is currently playing at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Haymarket, London – SW1Y 4QL.

It won’t be on forever, so book your tickets now!

Joseph and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat!

15th Aug, 2008 |

Joseph and his amazing technicolour dream coat is showing in London West End. Joseph is an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical and is now staring Lee winner of the role for Joseph on BBC.

Personally I think Lee is the next best thing to Jason Donovan but as I cannot have Donovan, then Lee is a must!

Nancy in Oliver Musical – I’d do anything!

1st Jun, 2008 |

The role of Nancy for the Oliver Musical was won by Jodie. The musical should open in December on Broadway in London. You can already book your tickets for the show from LondonTheatreDirect.

I expect there to be full houses due to the high publicity on BBC for the show “I’d do anything” in order to win the role of Nancy – so if you are planning to go – Book Now while seats are still available.
