AboutAfter nearly two decades of reviewing film, theatre and live events in London, I am interested in almost anything: fringe and mainstream, as well as any type of performance art. I'm especially interested in anything 19th century and have completed a short LAMDA stage management course which has given me increased respect for all the work that goes on behind the scenes! I also review arthouse and blockbusters, as well as museums and events. I’m also a bit of a horror/zombie/vampire nut and hate chickflicks with a passion. I’ve reviewed performances involving everything from dancing pineapples (The Snowman) to middleaged men leaping around in their y-fronts (modern dance – I *think*).
I'm also an extra in a few bigscreen movies, including Ray Winstone's The Sweeney, and the upcoming James McAvoy's Welcome to the Punch, but the less said about that the better!
