Theatre Review: Everybody’s Talking About Jamie #JamieLondon

Theatre Review: Everybody’s Talking About Jamie #JamieLondon

    Last week, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a live screening of the west end show Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, streamed directly to my local cinema from the Apollo Theatre in London. A young woman who used to go to our dance school (Courtney Bowman) is performing in it, so a group of us went along to see her. I really loved it and wanted to share my thoughts as I feel this show deserves a lot more attention!   The Story Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a musical based on the life of Jamie […]

Thoughts on the casting of Hermione: Does the race of an actor really matter?

Thoughts on the casting of Hermione: Does the race of an actor really matter?

After today’s casting announcement for the ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ stage play, it seems that a lot of fans are up in arms about Hermione being played by black actress, Noma Dumezweni. I’ve been reading through a lot of the comments and it’s got me thinking about how much the race and general appearance of an actor matters when casting an iconic role like this. Firstly, let me start by saying that I’ve tried to consider opinions on both sides in this post and to keep my discussion of the subject respectful. As a white woman, I’m in no way […]


Review: Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett

Review: Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett My rating: 1 of 5 stars  I had to read this play as part of the Open University course A300. I had little prior knowledge of it, except that Patrick Stewart and Sir. Ian Mckellan had recently starred in it. As a big fan of both actors, I had high hopes that it was going to be an interesting play. However, the plot of this play is practically non-existent and would be best-described by the following quote: “Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it’s awful!” Two men sit around all day waiting for someone […]

Twelve Days of Christmas Day 3: A Great Dance Show

Twelve Days of Christmas Day 3: A Great Dance Show

To celebrate Christmas this year I have decided to do a post on each of the twelve days of Christmas (25th Dec-5th Jan) to celebrate all of the gifts (both physical and metaphorical) that I have recieved this year and take stock of what I have achieved during 2011. On the third day of Christmas 2011 gave to me…a great dance show. In October we performed our annual dance show at our local theatre and it was great fun as usual. The first half of the show travelled through the different decades and styles of music- starting with 1940s swing, […]
