This is a continued blog from Wednesday…. Show stops and SIX
So on Thursday I had a matinee of Company. I got this ticket as part of their Thursday matinee under 25 £25 ticket deal. You got a BAND A ticket for £25! So I sat in the dress circle row C 7 and the view was incredible. I do think front row is better because you are fully involved with the story. I enjoyed it more first time round from the front row.(Read my full thoughts in my review) After the song “company” the curtain came down and I knew something went wrong. But I didn’t know what. Maybe the set or lighting? But turns out that Mel Giedroyc was unwell. This was Announced by a man coming on stage and telling us in person which was quite nice to announce her understudy going on. At first I thought he was telling us we couldn’t continue with the performance and refund slips will be given out. The audience reacted well by cheering her understudy on.
After the late finish I rushed to the phoenix to get my t-shirt exchanged for a bigger size because they are smaller then usual in my opinion. I got a small and exchanged for a medium. Then at 6:30 I was seeing Six! I gobbled down some mcdonald’s and rushed to the Arts Theatre.
I was so excited for Six! I heard incredible things and boy did it live up to it! I absolutely loved every minute of it. (Full review is coming soon!) It was my kind of show and I think it was aimed at my age group 14-30s but everyone was enjoying it. I sat in the Circle Slips L 8 which was the seat closest to the stage and had a great view. The queens looked at me! It wasn’t the most comfortable seat I have sat I and the legroom was a little tight. And I did take a bit to adjust to it but for the price (£31.50) it was worth it because you were so close and the sound was incredible.
At Six I bought a programme (£4.50) which had some really cool info on the show and I got a poster for £5 which I love but is smaller than my company and ETAJ one.
After the show I knew there was a 9:00 performance so I was so temped to book tickets for that evening it was that good! I am so happy this has got a home for the whole of this year. I will definitely be seeing this one again!
