Theatre Reviews

I’m not a big reader of audiobooks, because I can’t get my mind to settle for long but I am a big fan of the theatre. To me, going to the theatre is like reading a great book. For an hour or so, I am transported into a story and I devour the characters, the dance, the feel of the performance. I have my Granny to thank for my love of theatre. From the age of 5 (I think), right up to 22, Granny took myself and my 4 cousins up to London each Christmas to see a production of something. It opened a whole new world for me and I got just joy over seeing a performance that the interest in theatre is still within me now. For the last couple of years, I’ve had an ATG theatre card which means I can get discount on shows at any of their theatres. The New Victoria Theatre is near to where I live and I have been seeing A LOT of theatre since getting the card.

I can’t quite remember all the theatre productions I’ve seen but I have listed what I remember below.
