About Theatre Focus

Theatre Focus is a brand new blog that brings reviews, discussions and more to theatre lovers around the world. Founded by Abigail Briggs, a University College London BA French and Italian student in March 2012, after a particularly inspiring production of Sweeny Todd at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End. Theatre Focus received an overwhelming amount of views for it’s first ever review. The review was met with positive reactions from both readers and members of the Sweeny Todd cast alike. Lucy May Barker, who played Joanna, called it a “great and well-rounded review”. Publicly applauded and retweeted on twitter by members of the cast it concerned, Theatre Focus was given instant acceptance and support from the theatre world. Further reviews and positive reactions from the casts, companies and theatres concerned, such as the Leicester Curve Theatre, London Theatre Direct, “Gypsy” actress Victoria Hamilton-Barrit and West End stars Alexia Khadime and James McConville, has led to increasing support and acceptance of Theatre Focus as a reliable, impartial review site. Following on from this success, a run down and discussion of the 50 greatest songs in musical theatre was introduced to the blog. This allows and encourages fans to join in a discussion of the subject and have their say.
