Farewell, Kinky Boots

On 12th January at 7.30pm the Price and Sons Factory opens its doors for the last time at the Adelphi Theatre on London's glittering West End. After three wonderful years, Kinky Boots the musical leaves London and for me personally and for many others too it will be a hard day to swallow.

As I have written previously in a separate blog post Kinky Boots is one of my favourite musicals ever due to the message it holds at its core. The message behind the musical as previously mentioned in my prior post the message in Kinky Boots is all about acceptance, that of yourself and everyone else.

In total I have seen the show 3 times on the west end and one additional time on tour and I am grateful to the show for a lot of things. It has been one of my happy places for the past three years an has introduced me to many actors that I am now in love with and will continue to follow them and their performances as they go forwards with their endeavours.

Theatre-ing It Solo

As I type this blog post, I'm currently on countdown to visiting London for a weekend of theatre like no other. Amongst other things I will be attending the final London show of one of my favourite musicals and I'm sure there's going to be a lot of emotions out on the day.

Out of 22 shows that I saw in 2018, a good 17 were seen by myself alone and most of those were also in London, so I thought I'd talk about going to the theatre alone and what I think about it all.

2019 New Years Goals

Every year we are programmed as humans to think how we are going to change ourselves to make ourselves better in the upcoming year. Some people make resolutions but I found a few years ago calling them resolutions were just pointless as I gave up on them after a few weeks or so. Instead I now write down a collection of goals that I aim to try in the year and this year is the same.

I always publish a video on my YouTube channel, The Clare Necessities, where I state my goals for the year and I will be doing the same soon but I thought as I am also using my blog a bit more I would write them down here.

1.Read at Least 6 Books... This is an annual goal of mine in order for me to take some time away from a computer screen. There is nothing better than getting stuck into a good book and now that I have Good Reads I can keep on top of all the books that I really want to read through 2019.
