Brian Fallon @KOKO, 08/04/2016

It’s fair to say I’ve seen my share of really good concerts, be it Frank Turner, Springsteen or The Gaslight Anthem. And they all hold a special place and a definite spot in the top 5. But sometimes a gig is not just good, or epic, or awesome, sometimes it hits you right in the…

At The Bar of A Tokyo Hotel @ Charing Cross Theatre, 04/04/2016

I’m definitely not the best to review a play, I enjoy them, but I don’t know much about the background skills of it, so I’ll give you the low down, but the actual critics might think differently. At The Bar Of  A Tokyo Hotel is a classic by the wonderful Tennessee Williams and Linda Marlowe stars…

Sorry for the delay in getting this up. Totally thought this had gone up already.  🙂 What a treat this was. As a die-hard Frank Turner fan, this was not only something very special, a dream come true and thoroughly enjoyable, but also in aid of a fantastic cause. Everything about this gig was absolutely…

Sunny Afternoon @Harold Pinter Theatre, 01/03/2016

Oh this is definitely one of my favorite musicals so far. I love The Kinks, and the 60s in general. You can’t listen to Sunny Afternoon or Waterloo Sunset and not want to sing along or dance. The musical is all about the back story of the brothers from London. How The Kinks became such…

Guys n Dolls @ Savoy Theatre, 24/02/2016

Luck be a lady tonight, luck be a lady tonight, luck if you ever were a lady to begin with… la la la. In all seriousness though, Guys n Dolls at the Savoy Theatre will leave you humming all the way home. The story line is classic, Nathan Detroit is in need of money for…

Hand To God @Vaudeville Theatre, 18/02/2016

Comedy is a funny thing, literally and figuratively. You never know if someone else will find the same thing as hilarious as you do, especially when you cross cultural boundaries. I have learned from living in different countries, humor can be very different and it can be difficult to explain a joke that’s laugh-out-loud funny…
