Lumos Gala at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Bet there’s an awful lot of you reading this post who are HUGE Harry Potter fans. You could quote the books, discuss which Hogwarts house you’d be in and what your wand would be made out of for hours.

Top Five Motown Covers

GUYS GUYS GUYS! After a hugely successful run on Broadway and a US Tour, Motown The Musical is coming to the West End next Spring! Whilst I can sometimes be a leeeeetle bit snobby about Jukebox Musicals (though I swear to god, the day that Cher’s back catalogue is turned into a musical I will claw out the eyes of a thousand bitches to get my hands on a part in that) I am SUPER excited about this one simply because I’m such a massive fan of the soundtrack. SMOKEY, STEVIE AND  ...
