Introducing: Lasting Impressions, the next project

Now that I have actually been brave enough to start this blog, it is becoming increasingly obvious that I really should have started it years ago… I have seen so many productions worthy of a mention, so the intention is to do a series of ‘Lasting Impressions’ pieces on the productions that have been impressive enough (or disappointing enough, as the case may be) to have a lasting impression years later. Some are obviously more recent than others, and the productions under the label of ‘unmemorable’ in my memory obviously won’t get a mention, but there is quite a backlog to cover! It’ll take some time of course but it’ll fill the gaps between productions and take me on a few pleasant (and not so pleasant) trips down memory lane…

Watch this space!
