Musical Moments – And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going

Having seen Dreamgirls on Friday night I thought it was more than worth having this as the Musical Moment this Monday! With three different versions of the song, considering Amber Riley aka Mercedes from Glee was in the show first here is the clip of her performing from Graham Norton just before Dreamgirls opened in the West End.

Theatre: Hamilton Tickets!

Lin-Manuel Miranda is pretty amazing let’s face it In The Heights is an incredible show and he has been taking Broadway by storm with Hamilton was has been pretty impossible to get tickets for by the sounds of it!

When it was announced that the show would be coming to the West End I just knew that meant I would be having another trip to London. So signed up for the priority access which was open from June to October 2016, I am assuming I signed up in June.

Theatre: West End – Day Seats

Over the years I have spend hundreds of pounds, actually probably closing in if not over a thousand. I would honestly be too scared to count up all of the ticket prices on shows both as touring versions coming to the North East and on many trips down to London for the West End shows.

With all of that though I also stumbled across something called “day seats” if you are not aware these are seats that are sold cheaper on the day of the show direct from the Theatre it is being performed at, usually opening at 10am.

Most day seats were kept in the front row, but that depends on Theatre/Show.

Top 10 – Theatre Shows in 2016

Before I get into the list I thought it would be a great idea to mention that you can read about my 2016 Theatre trips here so you have an idea of which shows that I had to choose from when putting together my top 10 list of the year.

When picking the shows that could be in the list, I managed to narrow it down to 16! So then having to make the final pick was rather difficult as that is how much I really did enjoy and love them.

Just missing out on the list was Rocky Horror, Guys and Dolls, The End of Longing and Wicked. It was so difficult to have to leave out No Man’s Land as it was an absolute honour seeing Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart on stage. As well as Nice Fish with Mark Rylance (who is to be made a Sir).

2016 at the Theatre

Here I go with an overview of my 2016 of theatre trips to see musicals and plays. Touring shows that have come to the North East at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle and the Sunderland Empire. As well as managing to have a few trips down to London to take in what the West End has to offer! You can check out the list of shows here. I have somehow managed to out do 2015 catching 31 shows in 2016!

Stage Door – Mark Rylance

Today was my final theatre trio of the year to see Mark Rylance starring in the play he co-wrote Nice Fish (review to follow). Afterwards I headed to the stage door and was actually rather surprised that only two other people had decided to wait for him to come out.
