Awesome 5-star Beautiful The Carole King Musical
Hands up, if you don’t know the name Carole King (apart from it being the title of this review)? Yep. I counted myself in that number until going to the Aldwych Theatre to see “Beautiful The Carole King Musical” when I discovered I not only knew the name, but knew and loved virtually everything this highly talented singer/songwriter had ever put together.

An interesting video that I am sure many other webmasters and business owners can relate to. Two points immediately spring to mind and one question. 
1) For many websites that are de-ranked by Google for whatever reason - going to the Google Webmaster Forum will be a waste of time as ultimately the solution to the problem will not be found there. In some ways it is better to accept 'hit my Google' move on to another domain.
2) When Google penalises websites for whatever reason - surely it isn't beyond the realms of reality that Google as a company should inform those webmasters the reason why. Even broadly speaking. For John Mueller to say "move domains" He MUST have a reason for saying that - so John - what is that reason? ie. Poor content, poor backlinks, what?

My question is... Is it possible that Google is penalising webmasters or website owners? 

For all of those people that say "But it's your own fault for putting all of your eggs in one basket - a reality check - Google has approximately 90% of the organic search engine traffic.
Sympathies with you Robb Young and for any others that are going through this.

+LondonTheatre1 No, we don't have a solution. I meant 'luckily' since we could have taken the first piece of advice given to us and not kept trying other things. Or, we could have spent thousands of £/$ paying experts when realistically they had no chance of knowing what the issue was/is without a direct line to Google. It just underlines that a lot of SEO expert opinion is guesswork.

Muswell Hill is a cleverly written and well-acted production
Following a sold out run at the White Bear Theatre. Muswell Hill by Torben Betts has now arrived at the Park Theatre. Two seemingly different and opposite worlds are the focus of the play, which looks at both the after effects of a devastating earthquake in Haiti alongside a 1970s style evening in leafy and affluent north London. While the after effects of the earthquake will stay in memories for years, those in London worry about whether or not any of them will be remembered, and if so, why?

Amazing and Fantastic Miss Saigon at Prince Edward Theatre
The Prince Edward Theatre on Old Compton Street has seen some pretty huge shows in its time, and none is bigger that the one currently in residence “Miss Saigon”. It’s been 25 years since the original show opened and this new award winning production, which opened in 2014, looks like it’s set to stay for another 25.

Based on Puccini’s ’Madama Butterfly’ Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil have moved the story to Saigon in 1975 where American forces are fighting, and losing, the Vietnam war. Saigon is a corrupt city where The Engineer (Jon Jon Briones) runs ‘Dreamland’ a bar/nightclub/brothel assisting tired GIs with a bit of R&R between their trips to the interior. For the girls working the bar, every night is potentially the night when they finally meet a special GI who will love them and get them that all-important American visa so that they can escape the march of the Viet Cong and the destruction of their current life. Tonight, there is a new girl in ‘Dreamland’. Virginal 17 year old orphan Kim (Eva Noblezada), nowhere near as street-wise as the rest of the girls, led by the vivacious Gigi (Rachelle Ann Go) has just arrived and is serving in the bar. Also in the bar tonight is Chris (Alistair Brammer), an army sergeant based at the US Embassy and his best friend John (Hugh Maynard) who wants to enjoy everything on offer and is so much of a buddy to Chris that he ‘rents’ Kim for him for the night. After they spend the night together, Kim has an unwelcome visitor in the shape of Thuy (Ethan Le Phong), a man to whom she was betrothed by her father before his death. Unfortunately for Thuy, in the short space of time they have been together, Kim and Chris have fallen in love. Thuy is dismissed, vowing that Kim will honour the promises of her father and be his wife and Chris promises to take Kim back to the US with him, not knowing – how could he? – that Saigon was about to fall and he, along with everyone else in the embassy would be leaving the city with no opportunity for goodbyes.

*CATS will never die but will go on forever.. *

34 years ago, a ground-breaking production opened at The New London Theatre and almost overnight became a legend of Musical Theatre. The show was, of course “Cats! and after 8,949 performances it finally closed in London in 2002 but not before it had conquered the world. In December 2014, “Cats” re-opened at The London Palladium and, following a recent cast change I went along to see how the old show was standing up. #cats   #londonpalladium
