Theatre review – Noises Off

A few weeks ago I had the chance to watch the new production of “Noises Off” on the west end. One of the perks of being friends with a drama student is being dragged along to various theatre performances 🙂

Noises off is an absolutely hilarious comedy that plays on the concept of a play within a play. The audience is whiteness to both the dress rehearsal and the chaotic circumstances that occur backstage while the  play is being performed. We were lucky enough to sit in the front row, and I can honestly say that I laughed for 2 hours straight..

Noises Off is currently playing at the Old Vic theatre in London. If you want a light, entertaining night in the theatre, Noises Off is a wonderful choice.

The Wizard of Oz

When my parents came to visit me a couple of weeks ago, we decided to go see Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new production of The Wizard of Oz the musical, at the Palladium theatre. This musical is starring Danielle Hope as Dorothy and Michael Crawford (the original phantom in Phantom of the Opera) as the wizard. Danielle got the part of Dorothy through the popular BBC reality show entitled “Over the Rainbow”. This musical was absolutely fantastic! At first, I was worried that this musical was best suited for children, but I think its a wonderful, uplifting production, suitable for all ages. I will probably go see this musical again! If you are planning on going to London anytime soon, I highly recommend that you see it. I will definitely keep blogging about the musicals I see in London, but I’m a huge musical geek, so I’ll probably say that they’re all fantastic:)
