Gig Review: Jorja Smith

I spent my Valentine’s Day running through the rain with my Dad with newspapers on top of our heads for protection. Luckily, this was on the way to the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London, to see the wonderful Jorja Smith in concert. My stress levels were at their maximum as my Dad had purchased …Read More

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical at the Hippodrome – Review

‘Her name is Carole king. Her story is beautiful.’ Before the show I knew very little about this musical or it’s protagonist, Carole King; only that it had received rave reviews in Broadway for many years! Yet what I found was that this incredibly lively musical was filled with song after song of hits that …Read More

Director Harry Tennison seemed to realize this challenge, writing in the Director’s note for the production of the active attempt to make “a play about the …Read More
