Theatress – Like the Empress of Theatre… Get it?
A UK Theatre and Culture blog based in the Midlands & London.
I started Theatress as a way to talk about something I loved. I already went to the theatre a lot – I’m talking once or twice a month which is a lot for a normal non-theatre blogger person. Theatre is an escape, a chance to be transported to another world, to be completely emmersed in a story for 3 hours. Theres something truly special about the theatre and there is nothing better than sharing that with others! So I thought I’d write about it and in doing so I’ve been introduced to a whole new community of fellow theatre lovers and its pretty cool. I can’t wait to keep growing my blog and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds!
I started Theatress back in April 2017, so its almost 2 years old now and I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. I also can’t believe how much my little blog has achieved in that time. I’ve had the opportunity to work with theatre companies, attend events, been included on BroadwayWorld’s list of 100 people to follow in 2019 and so much more and still each time something wonderful comes along I still can’t quite believe it!! When someone says my recommendation encouraged them to see a show or attend an event and they loved it – I feel so full of joy! I’ve always loved the theatre and culture and having a platform on which to share my thoughts is pretty amazing.
