A Little Bit About Me & How I Became A Huge Theatre Fan

The first musical I ever saw was Miss Saigon when it visited the Manchester Palace Theatre on it's first UK tour back in 2001.  I was 18 years old and I didn't want to go because I thought it would be boring but my sister wanted to go for her birthday so I went.  I was very wrong about it being boring, it was amazing and from that day on I became a massive musicals fan.  I started visiting the theatre regularly after that and I also got my friends in to loving the theatre too and we started going to a show once a month.   My First Visit to the West End came in 2008 and I saw two shows I hadn't seen before, Wicked & Les Misérables. I loved both shows (they both are still in my top 10 musicals) and It was so much fun visiting some new theatres.  In 2010 I decided to get a part time job at my favourite place, the Manchester Palace theatre as a member of front of house, which was amazing as I got to be in the theatre every night.  Unfortunately I only worked their for a couple of months as my full time job was getting a bit demanding.  I did however return to work at the palace in November 2012 for a few months and the best bit was I was working there when the Lion King was on tour so I got to see the Lion King a lot whilst working their.  
In 2016 my husband and I went to New York for a few days as part of our honeymoon, luckily my husband loves the theatre just as much as I do so we went to a Broadway show every night we were there.  We ended up seeing Phantom Of The Opera, Les Misérables, Aladdin & Matilda and all three shows were amazing. I would love to go back to New York one day and see some more Broadway shows but I don't think it will be happening anytime soon.  In 2017 I had my daughter & in 2019 I had my son then in 2020 we had Covid so for a few years I didn't see a lot of theatre.  So since the theatres reopened I have been making up for lost time and have been seeing as many shows as I possibly can.  I am really looking forward to telling you all about my theatre trips and what I think of all the shows.
