I am the epitome of a theatre fanatic, I love going to see new shows, immerse myself in the stories and just let myself fall in love with the experience over and over again. But saying that, there are aspects of the theatre experience that I don’t love as much, so I thought I would share my theatre experiences and give you a little review of them.
I think these are more obvious, honestly, I love everything about going to theatre, everything from the dressing up to the actual performance itself. I have yet to see a play which left me disappointed and the only ones that I’ve not been as impressed with, were still amazing to watch.
There are some plays and musicals that I’ve seen without prior knowledge on the story and after that one time, I fell so in love with them, that I needed to see it again.
Personally, I think going to see a play/musical with friends and family is such lovely thing to experience together. It’s definitely become a monthly trip out in my house, a nice little evening out after a stressful month at university and it’s always fun to treat yourself to something special.
For me, being quite short, the bad usually has to do with sitting behind a tall person and then having a partial view of the stage for the majority of the performance. Fun, I know. Honestly, other feeling a bit restless from sitting down for so long there isn’t much I don’t like about the theatre.
I love going to the theatre, and I try and go as often as I can, but I do have to admit it can be quite pricey. Some of my favourite plays/musicals, are quite expensive, and even though I don’t mind paying a little extra to see something I know I’ll love, I totally understand that compared to other things the ticket prices for the theatre are relatively more expensive.
As a student, I believe there should be more put in place to allow people who probably don’t earn enough or are living off student finances to be able to see performances at the theatre and not be worried about the price of the ticket. There are so many informative and intuitive performances on at the moment and it would be such a shame to miss out on seeing something amazing because the prices are so bloody expensive.
There are quite a few websites out there which sometimes sell discounted tickets, such as theatre direct but honestly from what I’ve seen there aren’t many out there.
Going to see something at the theatre is such a lovely experience, so if you plan to see any plays this year and want me to write some short reviews on plays/musicals I have seen then please let me know.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
Love Sharuni xx
