Before you reach deep into your pockets and shell out for a ticket to The Last Five Years you must look deep into your heart and ask yourself one very important question, “Do I really, truly, actually, like Musical Theatre?” And I’m not asking here if you like raindrops on roses, choric dance routines or […]

What a fantastic production! I went into the theatre a bit agitated and restless and, to be honest, wasn’t totally convinced I really wanted to be there.

I love Wendy’s milkshakes. They are disgusting as it’s just three litres of pig lard made to look presentable, but I love them. Sometimes you ask the girl in pink over the counter what she put in your shake and all she can do is shrug her shoulders. So much for breaking the ice.

Having never seen any live professional improv before, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Funk Rabbit, but one disco ball, two guys, and a DJ later it was an hour’s worth of laughter I would definitely recommend. From the moment Funk Rabbit arrived on stage it seemed that Derek Flores (of the Fringe’s ‘Chit […]
