New year, new idealistic musical theatre plans…

I haven’t done a post like this before, but after sharing quite a scrappy note of my must-see list on my Instagram stories and seeing people’s curiosity (which made my heart warm: you lot are my FAVES), I decided to share my 2019 must-see musicals list here as well. Everything’s linked by the title, and I hope you find some potential new favourites on there for yourselves too.

I’ll tell you right now that there’s no chance I’m going to see everything on this list, but I’m sure as heck giving it a good go. I’ve known for a while that 2019 was going to be a Good Theatre Year for me, with so many of my all-time favourites heading out on tour and some much-anticipated musicals transferring to the West End. So, if you too are one of the lucky souls living in Yorkshire surrounded by incredible regional theatre, you can find my top picks below. And keep scrolling for some West End highlights (and deals and discounts!) too…  View Post

So here’s the thing. I’m one of ‘those’ people who firmly believe that beginning to celebrate Christmas too early takes away some of the magic from it. That said, a festive day full of seasonal food and crafts alongside a brand with such a wholesome message behind its Christmas campaign has sorted me right out. Hand me a glass of mulled wine as I enter the room and I’m all in: I’m sat here writing this post in my festive leggings and debating whether it’s too early to whip the decs out…

Wicked UK Tour – Leeds Grand Theatre

Expectations: 5/5

Reality: 5/5

Chronic illness friendly: 4/5

Let me begin this review by admitting a huge bias: you’d be hard pushed to find me saying a bad word about Wicked. It was younger Pippa’s obsession, resulting in it being the first West End show I ever saw, and the one that’s consistently stayed my favourite all these years later. There’s something utterly magical about Wicked, and this production at Leeds Grand Theatre certainly didn’t disappoint. View Post
