5 Reasons To See ‘Frozen II’

★★★★

Finally! Six years after the release of Frozen, Arendelle’s most iconic duo are back in the long awaited sequel, but was it worth the wait? The follow-up story is set a few years after the original and tells of Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven on a new journey to discover the source of a mysterious sound that Elsa can hear and get so much more than they bargained for on their quest. With so many of the creative team returning and promises made to answer those burning questions from the first film regarding the sisters’ heritage, this sequel has been highly anticipated by an abundance of fans. A great story packed with so many jokes, well written songs and all tied up with stunning animation, this film does not disappoint!

5 Reasons To See ‘& Juliet’

★★★★★

London has once again been graced with another new musical! & Juliet, written by David West Read (Schitt’s Creek), directed by Luke Sheppard (In The Heights, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ -The Musical) and featuring music from Max Martin’s extensive catalogue (Backstreet Boys, P!nk, Bon Jovi, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande etc. etc. etc.) has found its home at the Shaftesbury Theatre. The comedy musical follows Shakespeare (and his wife Anne)’s rewriting of his classic tale beginning with Juliet not killing her self upon finding Romeo’s body. From here, she decides to go to Paris with her best friends to find love once again.

We managed to see a preview of the show in Manchester this October and really enjoyed the performance but seeing it in the West End has completely blown us away. The production has become everything previews are intended for, it’s one of a kind and has to be seen to be believed! Here are our five reasons to see & Juliet:
