If you are interested in 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’ tab.
Living all my life in London, and coming from a relatively ‘lovey’ background, I relish the 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 Literature 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’ 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 ‘Semi-deep Thoughts’ tab to find a congregation of this particular brand of musings!
And finally, the place for everything else: a selection of my most weird and wonderful musings. There’s no theme, there are just thoughts written down; because, why not?!
