Theatre Review: Dear Evan Hansen // West End

Dear Evan Hansen… That was a brilliant production, and here’s why.

We Need to Talk About Elitism in Theatre

There is a rift within the theatre community and money is the reason. During my first year of university, I was watching Les Misérables (2012) with my friends.

Why Disney Can’t Remake Magic

Film Review: The Lion King

The opening to Disney’s Lion King (1994) is utterly, and undeniably iconic. In this contemporary re-imagining of the classic animated feature, director Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book) matches the sequence almost shot for shot with a photorealistic remake and it is pure magic.
