Musical Theatre

One of the things I like the most about London is West End shows. I love the theatre. Being on stage or in the stalls, behind the scenes or just walking past it, with all of the lights and colourful posters. My favourite genre, as you can probably tell from the title, is musicals. I listen to musicals in my free time and whenever I can I just go and see them performed live. 

Here in London I have seen Wicked, Les Misérables (twice, with Carrie Hope Fletcher as Éponine, and I'm ready to watch it again soon, or everyday even) and Matilda. In Italy I have seen Spring Awakening and The Addams Family (with an hilarious Elio playing Gomez). In London I have also seen Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is not a musical but is glorious and everybody should be allowed to see it at least once in their life.


Although I have already seen quite a few shows, the list of things I am yet to see is ever growing and at the moment includes the following: The Phantom of the Opera, Aladdin, The Book of Mormon, The Lion King, School of Rock, Kinky Boots and Hamilton (which I will probably never see because tickets are sold out till the day of my sixtieth birthday or something like that). I would also like to see Carrie Hope Fletcher performing in The Addams Family and see the non-musical show called The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.

I've decided that once I'll have a job I'll try to evaluate if I can afford to go to the theatre at least once a month. The theatre makes me happy and I'd gladly see the shows that I like again and again. I wish there was a season pass to see them everyday.


Before I go, let me tell you that there are other shows that I'd love to see but are not performed in London at the moment. Those are Miss Saigon, Funny Girl, Grease, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, anything Disney (Newsies, Belle and the Beast, Peter Pan...) and anything Kerrigan-Lowdermilk, because I lovelovelove their music. Most of all I'd like to see The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown, Henry and Mudge and Tales from the Bad Years.

I am pretty sure I forgot to mention something, so let's say that if it is a show and it has music in it I most probably just want to see it.

  1. I'm also looking forward to see the new Broadway show "Anastasia" and I hope it's going to come here in Europe sooner or later :,) The clip they put on the official YT channel in which "Anja" performs "Journey to the past" is terrific! Have you seen it? I'll put the link here if you want
