‘The Nutcracker’ is one of the most traditional Christmas tales to be told, and is a joy to see and perform on stage. I should know- because I was in it! I was seven years old, and was a sugarplum fairy flitting about the stage with eleven other girls. You can say that it doesn’t count, but it does to me! As such, Nutcracker is close to my heart.

Prior to seeing this musical on Broadway, I had seen the movie featuring Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum as the Phantom and Christine Daaé respectively. Fantastically done in its own right, it became one of my favourite movies to watch on a rainy day at my grandmother’s, and its songs are still on my ’Top 25 Most Played’ on my iTunes. That, however, did not measure to seeing it performed live. One of the most thrilling and haunting musicals to ever reach the stage, ‘... [More]

After seeing the musical for the first time six years ago, I quickly grew obsessed and listened to the soundtrack on repeat until the lyrics became permanently embedded in my mind. The thrill of hearing the tunes for the first time got lost in a wave of repetition until the moment the first note was played last night, proving that the stage production is as magical as all the spells in Oz. Of course, ... [More]
Written by Colin Tean, ‘The Kingdom’ is a play with Greek roots- though this is not apparent at first, as it merely starts out with three Irishmen who continue on their workday, telling tales to pass the time. It is only through these tales that you discover the dark and twisted truth of their pasts. Surprisingly enough, I really liked the play. I had to go for a class, and you know when you have to do something for school, it is guaranteed to be boring, or to have some signi... [More]
