By | November 25, 2014

It’d be hard for anyone to miss the abundance of Christmas-themed adverts which have been seen on TV in recent weeks, with the Big Day only a month away now. Amidst the endless campaigns for people to bestow happiness upon their family and friends with (overpriced) toys and jewellery and the latest technological gadgets though, there are one or two adverts which come a lot closer to the truth of… Read More »

In Profile with Nadim Naaman from The Phantom of the Opera

Best of British: Alexander S. Bermange cabaret at the Pheasantry tonight

By | November 18, 2014

Some I’ve found through Twitter and such social networking sites, some I’ve discovered through showcases, concerts, cabarets and other such events, some I’ve been introduced to through other people, and some I’ve developed an appreciation for through reviewing… Read More »

In October 2011, I paid a visit to the Novello Theatre to review Crazy For You.
