Kathryn Pintus - Page

Kathryn Pintus After completing a Zoology degree at the University of Durham and a Masters in Biodiversity and Conservation down in the wilds of Cornwall, Kathryn moved to London to study for a second Masters, and ended up staying put for a few years. It was here that her love of theatre, and in particular musicals, truly blossomed. She crammed in as many theatre trips as possible before moving back home to Geneva to work with the communications team of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Her addiction to the West End has not been suppressed, however, and she makes regular trips back to London for her theatre fix, and now enjoys writing the odd thesp-related article for BroadwayWorld UK in her spare time.

May 1, 2014

I have spent a lot of time at the Bristol Hippodrome in the last couple of years and have seen a range of productions there, but never one on ice. The gentle sounds of Arctic winds met me as I entered the auditorium, and I felt instantly relaxed and ready for an evening of entertainment.

BWW Reviews: DIRTY DANCING, Bristol Hippodrome, March 19 2014
March 21, 2014

Dirty Dancing is billed as being 'the classic story on stage', and it doesn't disappoint in its promise, bringing the characters of the ever-popular 1980s film to life for audiences across the UK. Highbrow theatre this is not. However, if you're looking for a fun night out at a show which doesn't take itself too seriously yet still delivers some wonderful dancing, well-loved tunes and a full dose of hip swaying, then Dirty Dancing is the show for you.

BWW Reviews: WEST SIDE STORY, Bristol Hippodrome, January 29 2014
January 31, 2014

I will probably be thrown into the darkest depths of Musical Theatre Purgatory for saying this, but…West Side Story has never been a favourite of mine. However, bear with me. I vaguely remember watching the film in my early years of secondary school, and wasn't particularly enamoured by it, so it was with mixed feelings of uncertainty and curiosity that I headed over to the Bristol Hippodrome to see the show on stage for the first time.

BWW Reviews: SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS, Bristol Hippodrome, January 14 2014
January 15, 2014

If the January blues are getting you down, I can suggest no better cure than to do-si-do on down to the Bristol Hippodrome this week for a thigh-slapping evening of musical mayhem with Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. A show packed full of raucous dance numbers, rugged sets (and men!) and downright rollocking entertainment, this old-fashioned musical is sure to bring even the grumpiest of bears out of hibernation.

November 20, 2013

I left the house this evening after a long day at work, and stepped out into the dark, cold evening not feeling my best, but thanks to the Bristol Light Opera Club (BLOC) gang I came home with a smile on my face. Their production this year is Irving Berlin's White Christmas, which brings some festive cheer to the lovely Bristol Hippodrome.
