    There’s nothing to review because it was simply phenomenal. Considering tickets for DTC Production Company’s CATS sold out long before opening night, it appears the entirety of Lincoln had high hopes for the show and their expectations were certainly surpassed.CATS, which premiered in 1981, has become one of the longest-running shows in both the West End and on Broadway. Andrew Lloyd Webber created an award-winning musical upon the foundations of T.S Eliot’s collection of whims...  Read More...

Sure, we shouldn’t be judgemental of anyone, but to judge someone is also to form an opinion of them and what they stand for, so as long as these judgements are informed, then what’s the problem?   Read More...

    Trying Is Better Than Wondering

    I’ve never bought into the restrictions that societal labels put on people. Just because I’m a girl doesn’t mean my favourite colour is pink. Just because I have four cats doesn’t automatically put me on the mailing list for the Highstreet’s up and coming store, Spinster’s R Us.   Read More...
