Rock of Ages UK Tour Wimbledon

Rock of Ages UK Tour 

New Wimbledon Theatre

Hey Everyone 

So tonight it’s back to the 80s and the classic that is Rock of Ages.

Currently on it UK tour it’s back in London this week bringing the story of Drew and Sherrie back to the stage.

Filled with 80s classics such as Here I go again, Dead or Alive and Don’t Stop believing this show is a must for any 80s fan.

After seeing the show in Liverpool I gave Lucas Rush my star of the show and again tonight he was spot on with his humour and is so good at his role. 

Joining the cast as Stacee Jaxx is Kevin Clifton who I also have to give a mention. He played the role brilliantly as Stacee and his vocals got a great reception from the crowd.

The finale bought a massively well deserved standing ovation and also felt like being at a rock concert. If you haven’t seen the show already grab a ticket now and get ready to rock out.

Let me know in the comments if you’ve seen the show and what you thought.

Have a great rest of the week

Dirty Dancing UK tour - Bromley

Dirty Dancing UK Tour 2019

Churchill Theatre Bromley 

Hey Everyone 

So tonight it’s been a journey off to Kellerman’s to revisit the classic summer of 1963 and the summer that bought Baby and Johnny together and a classic film and now a hit stage production to us to enjoy again and again. 

It’s been a while since the last tour and Westend run but from curtain up you can see how well this production has been done. 

From the costumes to the set you are there with the cast as they portray the timeless classic. 

Including the hits Hungry Eyes, Yes, and I’ve had the time of my life there is something for everyone in this show. 

I have to give a nod to Kira Malou and Michael OReilly for their performances of Baby and Johnny they were both spot on from the start.

I definitely think after the tour this cast and version of the show should get a run in the Westend. 

Drop me a comment below if you’ve seen the tour or plan too and what your thoughts were.

Fame UK Tour Wimbledon

Fame UK Tour Wimbledon

Hey Everyone 

For tonight’s review it’s time to head back to the 80s and Live Forever as the Fame UK tour heads to the New Wimbledon theatre.

For tonight’s review it’s over to Natalie who went to check out the show

Currently touring the UK, Fame is based on the 1980 musical film about the lives of ambitious high school students at a performing arts school.
Keith Jack from BBC’s Any Dream Will Do, Singer Mica Paris and Hollyoaks Jorgie Porter take the lead in this uplifting and lively show.
Although a colourful music, the show still has undertones of a darker side, of the cutthroat world of “fame” and covers issues of class, race, drugs, insecurities and love.
A stand out performance can be credited to Stephanie Rojas who played the part of Carmen Diaz. The stage came alight with her captivating and heartbreaking take on the role, including her performance of the titled track “Fame”. 
Hayley Johnston playing Mabel, and Albey Brooke’s playing Joe added the comedic value to the show, with hysterical performances on the themes of sex and food gaining the most laughs from the audience along with their use of Lycra and leg warmers.
Jorgie Porter playing Iris and Jamal Crawford playing Tyrone,  brought the dancing scenes alive with a beautiful mix of traditional dance and modern “street”.
What was interesting with the show was that it didn’t rely on a lead, with 8-9 of the cast having a solo song and stand out scenes which was a refreshing change and kept the audience captivated. 
The title track of Fame had the audience singing along and dancing to rapturous applause, especially with the incredible power of Mica Paris’s soulful vocals.

A fun but deep colourful musical.

The show is playing at the New Wimbledon Theatre all this week don’t miss out head out n grab a ticket now

Magic Mike London

Magic Mike Live London

Hey Everyone

So hot on the heals of Magic Mike Vegas came the news in the Summer of 2018 that the show was heading to London. Selling out pretty much every night the show has become a massive hit in its Central London home at the Hippodrome in Leicester Square.

I loved the show in Vegas and have been interested to see how it would be on stage here. Last nights visit was a birthday celebration for one of my closest friends. I have to say a massive thank you to the staff that let me pick up the VIP Lanyards early. The staff in general were all amazing from the moment you arrive and all the way through the show. 

The show itself was brilliant, there are a lot of elements I recognised from the Vegas show which all worked perfectly on the new stage here. Without giving much away no matter where you sit you won't miss out on anything no matter what level you are seated on.

If you are looking for a girlie night out the show is currently booking till October 19 so don't miss out. 

Hope you've enjoyed the blog
Let me know below if you've seen the show and what did you think
Have a great week
Love Holly
