Welcome to Watching From The Cheap Seats. A unintimidating reviewing website.
My name is Olivia and it is my aim to make theatre more accessible. I want to show people (younger generations in particular) that the world of theatre isn’t full of stuffy old people with monocles and pretentious personalities. It is, in fact, full of real people, real stories and real experiences.
In an attempt to do this I don’t use big long words or fancy technical terms. I let you know what I think of a show, gig or event in straight forward English. I studied in both Dance and Drama from a young age so I like to think I’m not entirely clueless, but I’ll let you be the judge of that…
Currently I am a student based in both Cheltenham and Bristol so that is where I tend to review. I am very grateful to be press for the Bristol Hippodrome, the Cheltenham Everyman and the Cheltenham Festivals, which allows me to write these articles and keep my passion for reviewing alive.
