Kerry Ellis - Live at Zedel

Kerry Ellis 

Live at Zedel Residency 2018

15th September 

Hey Everyone 

Tonight’s review is from Live at Zedel in Piccadilly in London.

I’ve been counting down for a while to see this show tonight and see Kerry live on stage again. 

The show itself is very different and more intimate from the tour earlier this year which from the start of the show made it more special to watch.

The whole way through the show we were treated to some of Kerry’s classics accompanied just by piano which had everyone singing along.

It was great to hear some favourites given new arrangements but I have to say hearing Kerry’s version of This is Me I really hope this makes it on to an album soon as I will be straight in to the queue to get it.

Kerry’s residency finishes on Sept 30th with tickets selling fast so make sure you don’t miss out on a lovely evening.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend

Eugenius Super Fan Sunday 2nd Sept 18

It was the bolt of lightning that bought the 80s back with a bang to the Westend earlier this year and now has struck a second time with a bigger bang at The Other Palace in London

Hey Everyone 

The 5 Star bolt of 80's joy is back

So following from the incredible acoustic press launch earlier this week Eugenius reopened this week to sell out crowds and standing ovations at The Other Palace.

With some clever new bits including the shows new hit song Hands Up which in my eyes is a great ad to the show and opens act 2 brilliantly. 

Emily Tierney nails her performance of the song perfectly in the show, it’s definetly one to head over to iTunes for and sounds great turned up loud.
Joanne Clifton has recorded it for the shows soundtrack and it was released this week. Pop over to iTunes and Spotify now and get it on repeat.

The show still has it’s incredible buzz from the first run earlier in the run.
With the add of Super fan Sunday which give you the chance to win exclusive prizes and also attend a QnA with the cast after the show which I attended today I think this makes the show something really different to others in the Westend right now.

It was great to hear from the creative team first and then from the cast who in turn answered some great questions from the audience. 
If you can grab a Sunday ticket you are in for a great afternoon. 
Head over to The Other Palace website now it’s not one to be missed.

The show is running now until October 7th and earns a 5⭐️ ⚡️from me 

Thanks for checking out the new review and have a great week.

Eugenius - Acoustic Session and QnA with the cast and creatives

Eugenius Acoustic Session and Live QnA 

Hey Everyone

So Tuesday evening was something very special 
Ahead of it's arrival back in the Westend at The Other Palace this weekend we were lucky to get a chance to not only see the cast in action but to see some of the shows biggest hit's live and acoustic.
The talent of the new cast is incredible and after hearing the songs acoustic it added something even more special to the magic of what will be seen on stage this weekend.

After a great QnA session which included the cast and creative team answering questions on the show it really added excitement before the shows return at the weekend.
The shows following has got bigger and bigger since the shows first run at the start of the year and shows no sign of stopping.

With a few short sleeps to go check out Joanne Clifton's new video now with the brand new song in the show Hands Up over on You Tube now and out at midnight on all platforms. It's one that will have you rocking out for sure.

Check back soon for our new show review

Interview With Ben Adams ahead of the return of Eugenius to the Westend

Lightning has struck twice Eugenius returns to The Other Palace on Sept 1st

Hey Everyone,
Welcome to a special set of Eugenius themed blogs heading your way this week
To start off we have a brand new interview with Ben Adams ahead of the shows return in a few days time

How does it feel on the run up to the start of Eugenius returning to the Westend ? 
Well, it’s a mixture of feelings. I’m super excited to show everyone what we’ve been working on since the last run. New script, new song, new choreography. And a totally amazing cast! It’s even better! But it’s also a fairly stressful time for everyone making sure it’s right and we have a very limited amount of tech days to do that before it’s open so we’ve got a lot of work to do. I’m also trying to juggle the a1 reunion, and flashdance so I’m all over the place at the moment-literally Havnt had a second to myself in months! 

Seeing how popular the show was earlier in the year what’s been the biggest personal highlight for you? 
Just seeing the joy on people’s faces when they left. It’s the first time I’ve created something that I can experience with the audience and sit amongst them rather than being on stage. It’s an amazing feeling. 

What’s the biggest thing you are looking forward to for the shows return?  
The new song! Hands Up! is released on 31st August and I think it might be my favourite of the whole show! 

What’s next after this for Eugenius ? 
We have some big plans for it next year but we need to keep that under our hats for the moment-don’t like to get excited about things until I see signatures on the dotted line......

What’s been the most surreal thing that’s happened so far on the Eugenius journey
Seeing people get tattoos of the lyrics. It’s amazing that Eugenius has meant so much to people that they want to have it with them for the rest of their lives-it’s incredible. 

A massive thank you to Ben for taking part in the interview for us.
Don't forget to keep an eye later today for some exclusive footage from the press evening coming live on our instagram channel over on Box Office Bloggers Instagram

Madagascar UK Tour - Glasgow

Hey Everyone

So tonight was a visit as I’m here in Glasgow to the Madagascar Tour which has been at the Kings theatre this week.
I’ve proved to myself I’m never far from a theatre when I went exploring when I got here to find it literally round the corner from where I’m staying.

It’s been a few weeks since I saw the show at Wimbledon but the cast are firmly at home in their roles now which made the show great from start to finish. 

It was great to have a chance to see the show again, it’s really one you have to take the family to see this year.
If you are a fan of the films this stage adaption is a must, it’s been put together so well and works for all ages
 Check back a couple of blogs for the press night at Wimbledon to see more of what we got up to. 

Have a great rest of the week 

Love Holly
