Why this blog? For many years I was a BBC arts correspondent covering the UK theatre scene. In 2017 I changed jobs and entered the somewhat less showbiz world of global news. I still love to escape to the theatre as often as I can and with London’s West End just a Boris bike ride away, I thought I’d get back into writing about the plays, the actors, the creatives and the excitement of opening nights.
I should point out that while I enjoy sitting in the Grand Circle or the Stalls, I also spend a lot of my time in the cheap seats.
However, I thought that the title The Man With a Restricted View wasn’t quite as catchy.
