Confessions of an Undiscovered Star

Christmas, Cabarets and Several Hallmark Movies Later...

Ok, ok there has been a lot of time since I last updated this but here we are - since I last wrote a blog Christmas has come and gone, I have performed a work in progress of my cabaret that I'm hoping to perform at the Camden Festival and we look like we exchange contracts on a flat FINALLY this week - Hozzah! 

I have been super busy as always but I have discovered my favourite way to veg out is hallmark movies, particularly the ones they show on all the channel 5 channels with the run up to Christmas. There is a something calming about predictable, 'nice' love stories.

Even Netflix is in on the act and I'm currently sat watching a made for TV movie about a woman who finds a list left by her dead mum that has just lead her to a short conversation with Rita Moreno - RITA MORENO PEOPLE! What a stunning woman. I'm now singing 'America' to myself; which is ironic as it's a song about plucky, young immigrants loving living in America and the current President is doing all he can to keep them out. But I digress.

I'll be moving over from Squarespace 5 to 7 soon (what happened to 6?) so this will look all a bit snazzier plus my new headshots will be up woo-hoo! They are already on my spotlight page if you head over there.

Take it easy and see you on the flipside.


After The Woods

My thoughts a week on after 'Into the Woods' (I'm so stagey I had to muse on it) *warning spoilers* 
I love this show and really enjoyed the film in general - a good adaptation.
I missed 'Ever After', although pleased it played in the background; I wished they tried a bit harder to think outside the box and bring Simon Russell Beale in as narrator as well, such a fabulous actor and there are definitely clever filmy ways to do it; loved the Joanna Riding cameo; mad range of accents from very American little Red to an Artful Dodger Jack; not sure what Little Red Riding Hood 'knows now' or how as that whole section missed something for me; Tracey Ullman was great and made an impact with a small part; Meryl and Anna Kendrick were also good and turned in the performances I expected (solid but no surprises) but the film stealers were Emily Blunt and Chris Pine in my humble opinion. Corden was a bit of a non-event sadly.
Oh and Rapunzel not dying. And the Prince & Baker's wife obviously didn't sleep together but hey it is a PG Disney movie. And 'Children will Listen' was thrown away a bit. (I did enjoy this film really though!)
