It’s true – I’ve finally seen Hamilton! After years of wanting to see this phenomenon musical on Broadway, I didn’t even have to travel out of my city to see the show. We booked tickets all the way back in January 2017, and after a lot of stress when our performance was cancelled and we were allocated new tickets, we finally got to see this show on Tuesday 19th December 2017 at the Victoria Palace Theatre. This was the penultimate preview before the show officially opened on Thursday 21st.
Since moving to London just over a year ago, I’ve seen 16 musicals. It’s fair to say that I’m a little bit obsessed!
Now that people are starting to realise just how often I head to the theatre, I’ve had a fair few people asking me to recommend a show for them. It’s always tough, especially because different shows will suit very different people. I’ve decided to try to answer this questions through a handy blog post of my top 10 favourite shows ever. Not all of them are still showing in London but a lot of them are.
I’ve also ranked them in order. The top four are practically all my favourites, but I’ve managed to put them into a hierarchy. What do you think will claim the top spot?
My weekly round-ups are starting to have a musical theme to them. Don’t worry; I’m not spending all of my wages on theatre tickets (though I probably would if I could). This week, I managed to go and see Matilda for only £5, and if you’re aged between 16 and 25 then you can as well.
I also ventured to a new burger place near Covent Garden. If you’ve read my review of the top five best burgers in London, you’ll know that I take my burgers, buns, cheese and bacon very seriously. Find out if Meat Market is good enough to enter my top five by reading on…
My wonderful friend Jaye joined me in the #feeling22 club this week, and we celebrated her birthday in style. From masses of food and cocktails on Thursday evening, to exploring her new area in East London on Saturday night, it’s been quite a social week.
