Live Theatre is Back: Reviewing Jesus Christ Superstar, Regents Park Open Air Theatre

Friday, 21 August 2020

Live theatre is back, and better than ever in a way that keeps everyone, both audience and performers alike, safe. It’s an understatement to say the theatre scene has taken an impact from Covid-19, but Regent’s Park open announcing a short 6 week run of their award winning production Jesus Christ Superstar appeared to be an almost beacon of hope in the darkness and confusion we are all currently feeling.

Despite being the same venue I visited last year, when I was fortunate enough to see Evita, the outdoor theatre almost feels like a completely different place. With temperature checks in the queue, and a one-way system around the outdoor bar area, it is clear to see that the venue has gone above and beyond to ensure public safety at all performances. ‘Seating bubbles’ in the auditorium limit the contact between members of the public, bringing the audience size down to less than a third of what would normally be permitted at the venue. Masks are asked to be worn at all times by those who are not exempt, allowing a glimpse over how the theatre can possibly return. (When it isn’t raining at least..)

Life in lockdown: how I kept busy

Monday, 17 August 2020

I’ve not written on here for a good while, I would apologise but in eality I’ve been rather lazy and lax since I wanted to focus on my masters. The laziness is more in regards to not knowing what niche I could have or where I wanted to go with this blog.

Over the last few months, lockdown, rona, just everything; I have wanted to make a difference. At least I have wanted to use my voice for good, I’m still not sure how to do that but I am trying. I really want this platform to be a reflection of my voice though, meaning there may be serious posts where I rant or talk about what needs to change in the world. Not many people read this platform, but I like to think this is or can be a voice beyond frivolity and fun musings.
