Hey Snoochers, so its been a little while, and we’re sorry for our absence but as you may have seen on Twitter we’ve been working super hard to set up our sister site The Reel Deal.
Now we are back! And kicking off a brand new load of fun lifestyle content just for you with our very first review for the brand new refurbished Travelodge Hotels. We sent Becks to the heart of Theatreland in London to spend a night at the Covent Garden hotel to see what its got to offer… and she even did this very kind video review just for us!
So we hope you’ve got a good idea of what its like to stay in one of these very convenient and affordable hotels (rooms start from £29, our recommendation is that you sort out your booking online). To be fair, you’re going to spend most of your time outside of the hotel, exploring the great cities they’re based in, so why pay through the roof for a bed!
Chocolate fans, your golden ticket will be with you later this year, but to wet your appetites, Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Neal Street Productions and Langley Park Productions have released a brand new featurette for Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, directed by Academy Award® winner Sam Mendes.
‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Rehearsals Sneak Peek’ sees the creative team behind the musical come together to talk about the production as well as a sneak peek at the rehearsals with the cast and orchestra.
And if that wasn’t enough we’ve also got some delicious first photos of the rehearsal AND first look images of Willy Wonka – who is portrayed by Olivier and Tony Award®-winning Douglas Hodge -and his costume, which has been designed by set and costume designer Mark Thompson.
