It’s never too much for a theatregoer!

What I’ve booked for from September to January. It’s never too much for a theatregoer! I’m so excited, even for “War Horse“, which I saw already!

I’m glad to see Ben Whishaw, Oliver Johnstone and John Heffernan on stage again. Can’t wait to see some others for the first time: Bertie Carvel, Benedict Cumberbatch, Karl Johnson, Dan Parr, Reece Sheersmith, David Morrissey, Sally Messham, Laura Roger, Luke Newberry, Anna Maxwell Martin and others.

I’ve great expectations on the three LGBT plays “The Sum Of Us“, “Tipping The Velvet” and “Teddy Ferrara“, which feature young cast mostly.

And, despite I tried hard to…. resist, I HAD to book for “Macbeth” in January, because since “Oppenheimer” I realized I can’t miss a “perfornan” (aka a John Heffernan’s performance). My notebook is ready for my notes!

Last but not least, I’ve great expectations for 2016: I wish so much one actor announces his next stage role….but, shhht, I can’t talk….(yet).
