Being not altogether ‘tech-savvy’ I discovered that I couldn’t control my blog in quite as much detail as I might like. Thus I am forced to define my musings into “Categories”; the list of which can be found at the very bottom of every page.
If you are interested in some certain things I have to muse about, but couldn’t care less about the others, please feel free to filter out the background noise by choosing a specific category (although they may occasionally overlap, such is the complex mess going on inside my brain- sorry!)
By way of a contents page:
As I globetrot, I’ll be attempting to keep those back home in the know. So if you want some of my latest stories, insights, or just to check that I’m still alive, check out the ‘Travel’ category tab.
Living all my life in London, and coming from a relatively ‘lovey’ background, I relish any chance to see anything live that may be thrown my way. From going backstage darling at West End musicals, to navigating a shed, in a carpark, in Hackney Wick to see a semi-pornographic update of Ibsen, I like to think my palate is relatively all-encompassing.
As an English Lit graduate (and generally keen drama nerd) it seems my tastes have somewhat outgrown the sparkly, overly sugary musicals of Theatreland, thus I’m more likely to write on goings on at the National or the Young Vic. I unapologetically adore Shakespeare, but, in the interest of being a well-rounded audience member and general human being, I also like to pursue plays I’ve never heard of, based on their writers, cast, or sometimes just generally eerie vibe.
So, in short, if you want my opinion of some of the shows I see (I aim to frequent the playhouse a little too often, thus I probably won’t cover everything), then please peruse the ‘Theatre Reviews’ category tab.
N.B. Of late, I have branched out beyond my blog. If you are still interested in catching my theatrical musings, please check out the latest at: http://www.thestateofthearts.co.uk/author/sacha-crowther/
From time to time, my posts may (attempt) to take an intellectual tangent of sorts.If this is the kind of vibe you’re looking for, please do seek out the category tag ‘Semi-deep Thoughts’ to find a congregation of this particular brand of musings!
Another category tag to find way down at the bottom of the page, should lead you to a selection of my weird and wonderful musings. There’s no theme, there’s just thoughts written down; because, why not eh?
