Today is my stop on the wonderful blog tour celebrating the release of Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt!
Theatrical was released on the 28th June 2018 published by Usborne and is set to warm your heart and remind you of the magic of the theatre.
With this in mind as part of my stop I wanted to share a few of the shows that made me fall in love with the theatre…..
Hope dreams of working backstage in a theatre, and she’s determined to make it without the help of her famous costume-designer mum. So when she lands an internship on a major production, she tells no one. But with a stroppy Hollywood star and his hot young understudy upstaging Hope’s focus, she’s soon struggling to keep her cool…and her secret.
This was one of the first ever Theatre performances I went to as an angsty teenager who was heavily into grunge and rock and black eyeliner (still am) ….. and it broke my heart into tiny pieces! It has stayed with me ever since and even listening to the music causes me to breakdown into tears! I was lucky enough to see it again a few years ago in London and I didn’t even make it past the 2nd song before having something in my eye. It’s a remarkable piece of theatre.
Me and the hubby booked to see this whilst we were on our honeymoon in London (we basically booked a show a night for 10 days) and it blew us away. I will be honest we didn’t know too much about it before we booked but had heard good things and wow were they right! I will never forget having my breathe taken away from me when hearing Defining Gravity live …amazing! We have been trying to go back and see it ever since but we haven’t got there yet! But soon we hope!
Another theatre trip where we didn’t really know what to expect, but the production of this was fantastic! The music was catchy and there were some super funny and touching moments! We loved it and wished we had been to see it again!
You can buy a copy of Theatrical here or from your local bookshop!
