Hi, thanks for dropping in and taking a peek at Entertainment Views , my name’s Helen McWilliams and I set this blog up under the name of Break A Leg in 2013. It’s taken off in ways I could never have imagined, from being a West Midlands based theatre review blog to being able to include UK wide venues and productions. You might also find me checking out the latest gigs or Stand Up Comedy shows too. I love live entertainment and I’ll go anywhere to review anything as long as the diary allows! Equally, good days out with the family are always on my radar and source of entertainment I can’t get enough of. I’m a self-confessed telly addict and movie buff as well – usually glued to a screen of some description as often as time allows.
Some of my favourite theatrical experiences have occurred when they were highly unexpected. I’m a massive fan of the musical, Blood Brothers and I could literally sit and watch it on a nightly basis. I still jump when the guns go off and cry like a baby. I’m also an Opera enthusiast, a newly discovered passion. In fact, when it comes to music my taste is eclectic to say the least, it varies from Texas to The Searchers to The Prodigy to Dua Lipa to Buddy Holly. If we’re talking telly, as I so often am doing then a good costume drama, a Kay Mellor series or indeed the soaps, are my bag. Sit coms are also a favourite, I was raised on Hi De Hi!, Keeping Up Appearances and On The Up – all the classics of the 80s and 90s which I still revisit now.
Enough of me and my likes, though – as you’ll see from my reviews and articles, I don’t tend to accept an invitation to review a show or event unless I have an inkling that I’m going to enjoy it. Hard work goes into putting on a production of any genre and I take my hat off to everyone who sets off on such a journey. It’s not an easy one, I know, peppered with travel sickness, toilet stops and wails of “are we nearly there yet?”.
In 2016 I decided to recognise as many entertainment professionals as I could by instigating the Break A Leg Awards. This event continued into 2017 with a public vote introduced and embraced (thousands of votes!). This year’s awards will be re-named Entertainment Views Awards and will offer more opportunities for all readers and subscribers to get involved.
I also set up a sister blog for Break A Leg, those of you who’ve had a read will know it was called TV & Movie Scene. I have merged both blogs now to create this re-branded one – so the upshot is that you’ll find theatre, comedy, music, television and movie reviews here… busy times! I love it all though, entertainment is my passion. I hope as you’re reading this that you share that passion too. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
