Oooops – what happened in 2017? Very little theatre reviewing compared to usual.
Well first of all I was working 7 days a week for a year so everything came to a natural halt and since then I have been taking stock and re-evaluating everything and although I hope to step up my reviewing capers again, I have to be more realistic about how I organise my time.
Nevertheless, I shall ALWAYS go to the theatre, and I will always like to share my adventures with my readers.
Check out my theatre blog www.theatresoutheast.com. for more reviews. For the majority of the reviews on TSE this year I have relied heavily on my team of friendly reviewers, I am always looking for more, so if you have a little time on your hands, love theatre and love writing about it, please let me know.

I have had a change of reviewing habits this year. There has been far more regional theatre visited and less West End. There is a good reason for this as the choice of productions has been superb. Many of the shows I saw on tour ended up in the West End too, for example, No Man’s Land, The Dresser and Half a Sixpence. As usual, these are just MY reviews, I have many more written by guest reviewers on www.theatresoutheast.com. so if you are looking for anything in particular, try there! Continue reading →
Fact is, because I have been so hell-bent on this doing this challenge, most of the others on my 101in1001 list have been neglected. Blogging is the sole reason why I have, to date, completed less than half of my challenges. Oh well, I don’t care that much – I love it.
I can tell that you are confused. This blog that you are reading isn’t that great, I only post occasionally and in fits and starts, when I picked my challenges I did envision that Sammioneill was going to become huge and I was going to be the middle aged equivalent of Zoella. Hahahaha *kidding.
When I was putting my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days, there were two challenges I was quite keen to do, to attend my first full-length ballet and also my first full length Opera.
I must admit, although I enjoyed and appreciated the ballet, it didn’t quite rock my boat ( a little too genteel), but last week’s visit to the Opera certainly did! I saw Verdi’s La Traviata at the invitation of The Hawth, Crawley and Amande Concerts to review for Theatre South East. I was excited but also a little bit nervous as I always get when I have to review something I know nothing about.
