Welcome to Watching From The Cheap Seats, an unintimidating reviewing website.
I’m Olivia, a Bristol-based journalist by day and theatre reviewer by night.
I’m all about accessible theatre and down to earth honest opinions, so I started Cheap Seats in Autumn 2014 with an aim to prove that the world of theatre isn’t as stuffy as it seems.
With theatre running in the family and my day job being a journalist, it only made sense to bring together my two loves of writing and theatre.
At the moment I’m reviewing for any theatres I can get to easily! These include the Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol Old Vic, Cheltenham Everyman and the Cheltenham Festivals, Theatre Royal Bath and The Barn Theatre in Cirencester.
I have also reviewed for the Royal Shakespeare Company and Sadlers Wells as well as attending a press screening of the Oliviers.
