The Awkward Years | The Other Room

Remember back in July when I said I was going to get back into blogging? Yeah, life got busy and that didn't happen. I managed to pick up a full time job (yay) but I work a lot of evening shifts (boo) so I just haven't had a chance to see much theatre sadly. This week however I found myself with a few days off and I knew exactly what I wanted to do - I bought myself a ticket for a new play by Matthew Bulgo, The Awkward Years, which was appearing for an almost two week run at The Other Room theatre.

Fun Home | Young Vic Theatre

I'm back! I've been a bit absent on the blogging front in 2018 and I feel like an explanation is due: I've just completed my journalism degree from Cardiff University (with a first - yay!) but this was a very essay-based course and so I was spending so much time writing academically that I wasn't feeling the desire to write for pleasure. Also, I sadly haven't been attending as much theatre as I have done in previous years. Again, this is partly because I've been a student and have been trying to save some money for the future, and hey - getting to London from Cardiff by train is damn expensive! I guess the final reason for my lack of theatre blogging enthusiasm has been due to the fact that since December I've been working in a theatre. I spend a lot of time soaking up the atmosphere of the theatre (that pre-show buzz, whisperings about upcoming shows etc) but as I'm working I don't get to see much, so there just hasn't been too much for me to write about.

Finding Great Seats for Your Budget with SeatPlan

Seats described as restricted view sometimes have a great view!

While I adore visiting the theatre, I've never been someone who has been comfortable splashing the cash to see a production on stage. Despite approaching the end of my student days (a week until I finish my degree to be precise!), I still don't have the budget to spend on top-band seats, nor do I think you should have to spend upwards of £60 to be able to enjoy a show. While front row seats can be great, I also know from experience that you can get a great view from seats that you might not expect. This is where SeatPlan.com comes in handy.

Everybody's Talking About Jamie | Apollo Theatre

Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of checking out the award-winning new British musical Everybody's Talking About Jamie. This show has such a buzz surrounding it that I just knew I had to see it. Based on a true story, the musical follows sixteen year old Jamie New from Sheffield on a journey of self-discovery and stardom. Filled with punchy songs and witty dialogue, this is a truly heart-warming and inspiring production.
