I usually write something for New Year’s, whether it’s a resolution to make a blog (no virtual dust here, everything’s clean and tidy…ish) or a review of my year, I come up with something. I considered writing another review for 2019 but didn’t want to repeat myself, and then I thought about resolutions but those …

Last week the trailer for Cats the musical was released on Youtube and brought quite a lot of horrifying reactions with it. The decision to make the actors look more realistically like cats with CGI technology is a weird and terrifying one considering they could have easily gone with the tights and make-up that regular productions use, but …

The Tony Awards are the only award shows I really care about. Sure, I watch the Oscars and have learned to appreciate them in the years I’ve started watching them, but the Tony’s are nothing compared to them. For those who don’t know what the Tony Award’s are, they’re an annual awards show that celebrates …

This weekend was the HamilTEN Festival in my city. It’s a festival I’ve talked about a bit on here because my ten minute play A Spell for Schoolgirls was accepted into it and I was super pumped/anxious for it. Well, this past Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were our show days, it came and went so quickly, and …
