✨GLORIFYING THE AMERICAN GIRL✨
I can't just see one thing in a day can I? Hahaha! This evening I saw FOLLIES at the National Theatre and wow, what a show. The cast were so wildly talented, they were jaw dropping to watch but what blew me away were the costumes and the set. There are literally no words to describe how dreamy the production was.
The show told the story of a reunion of people who worked at Weisman's Follies, a club in New York. I didn't know the songs or the story prior to being on the audience but I quickly learnt how the story of the past and the present was being told. It truly was a triumph, the standing ovation was massively deserved! Go and see it if you can!!!
This journey is both beautiful and eye opening. Over the last year I've been blessed to build a digital marketing and creative production agency as well as a label promoting undiscovered talent. It's beautiful to work with so many creatives and visionaries on a daily basis but it's eye opening to see the barriers a lot of people chasing dreams face.
Whether it's mental health, financial troubles, family troubles, self doubt, the list goes on and on, if there's one thing I've learnt it's to hate the sin, not the sinner because we are all going through so much, we let so little out and often we fall onto destructive support mechanisms.
I'm excited to be releasing new projects with the whole team featured along with some new faces we've picked up later this year. New visuals from @diamandamusic and @yungferino looking too good. For now, stay hungry and stay blessed. ❤️
The BAIA 1st year students visited the National Theatre yesterday where we observed its history, structural composition and material detailing. Built in 1976 with predominantly concrete and rare African wenge dark wood. .
| the national theatre | this is only the second photo I’ve ever posted in black and white | one of my biggest photographic regrets is not taking photos of the Tricon in Portsmouth. Back then I was more interested in talking about taking photos than I was taking them | last Sunday as I wondered around the Thames trying to capture the landmarks of London I realised that it was a harder job than I first anticipated. Photographing the sea is a lot easier as I’ve had more practise, however London is a bigger, different ball game all together |
For every time I have doubted the career path I have chosen, for every time I thought my passion for my art died, a moment in this place has reignited it for me... and it’s only day 2. Thank you London ❤️🇬🇧#london

دیشب فیلم #طعم_گیلاس رو برای بار دوم دیدم. بار اول همون سالی بود که ساخته شد. ۹ سالم بود و هیچی ازش یادم نبود.
اول از همه میخوام از هرکی این فیلمو ندیده یا مثل من فیلم و پیامش رو فراموش کرده، #خواهش کنم! تکرار میکنم! خواهششش کنم که وقتی پیدا کنه و تماشاش کنه، چرا که روح منو تازه کرد. میخوام این اتفاق برای شما هم بیفته.❤️
بعدش هم اینکه اونایی که دیدید و فیلم رو یادتونه، برام بنویسید برداشتتون چی بوده ازش (طبق معمول اگر حوصله دارید البته😘). .
پ.ن: اگر نقدی دارید هم بنویسید.

On this day of love, I want to celebrate this incredible group of humans who stole my heart for 4 months. This show ignited my soul with it’s music and story and sharing it with all of these people is what made it so special. So here’s to them!! ❤️
Downstate Illinois... .
Four men convicted of sex crimes against minors share a group home where they live out their lives in the shadow of the offences they committed. A man shows up to confront his childhood abuser — but does he want closure or retribution?
This provocative new play zeroes in on the limits of our compassion and what happens when society deems anyone beyond forgiveness.
30.01.2019 • Visit to @nationaltheatre • The National Theatre is one of four patronages that Meghan initially announced earlier this month – and this one was handed down to her by Queen Elizabeth • As part of the Duchess of Sussex’s visit to London’s National Theatre on Wednesday, she caught a five-minute performance inspired by the play War Horse presented by young thespians from the Edith Neville Primary School who are working with the theater’s elementary school program. The performance was created to mark the centenary of Armistice Day. • The children sat on the floor gathered around Meghan. Kensington Palace shared a sweet photo of one school boy with an ear-to-ear smile and his chin propped up by his hands gazing up at the royal, clearly starstruck – and perhaps a bit smitten! Meghan, with a hand placed on her growing baby bump, returns the grin. • The mom-to-be confessed to the children that she had seen them perform before – when she snuck into their show in December. “You guys did an amazing job when I saw you perform right before Christmas,” she told them. “I snuck in and watched. It was great, I didn’t want to leave.” She continued, “So this will be like a take two. But you’re much quieter than when I was last here!”• The children knew they’d be performing for a “VIP,” but they were shocked to find out it was Meghan. “I thought maybe it was the Duke of Edinburgh or George Ezra. But then when they said it was a female VIP I thought, ‘Yes! Rita Ora!’ ” said Kroni Pacolli, 10. “I never thought I’d perform in front of the royal family and meet a royal! I’ve only ever seen her on TV. I’m speechless.” Pacolli added, “She came and shook my hand and I’m never going to wash this hand again!” His classmate Tahmina Begum, 10, told reporters, “We didn’t know Meghan was coming, I thought it was maybe another actress – Emma Watson.” She added, “Meghan knows how it feels for us as she used to be an actress, so I hope she was impressed by what she saw.” • #meghanmarkle#meganmarkle#duchessmeghan#duchessofsussex#nationaltheatre
The Duchess of Sussex visits the National Theatre for the first time as its Patron, 30th January 2019.
The Duchess has an affinity with the National Theatre after spending a decade as an actress before becoming a member of the Royal Family, notably in the American TV drama, Suits, portraying paralegal-turned-lawyer Rachel Zane.
The former actress joined community actors and watched as people from neighbourhoods across London took part in a workshop in a rehearsal space.

مگان مارکل، عروس دربار سلطنتی بریتانیا روز چهارشنبه (سی ژانویه) از تئآتر ملی انگلستان در لندن دیدن کرد؛ مگان که قرارست فرزندش را در دومین هفته فصل بهار بدنیا آورد، به عنوان رئیس تشریفاتی تئآتر ملی، جانشین ملکه بریتانیا شده که سالها این سِمت را برعهده داشت...
دربار سلطنتی بریتانیا اعلام کرد که فرزند مگان مارکل، دوشس ساسکس و همسر پرنس هری، هفته دوم بهار بدنیا میآید اما از اینکه بچهی مگان پسر است یا دختر هنوز خبری منتشر نشده و گویا این خواستهی مگان مارکل، بازیگر سابق سریالهای تلویزیونی هالیوود و عروس دربار انگلستان است که جنسیت فرزندش در زمان تولد سورپرایز باشد!
At the @nationaltheatre The Duchess of Sussex meets Blessing, aged 13, who performed in the NT’s first Public Arts production of Pericles in 2018. Blessing is passionate about inspiring others through storytelling — her first NT Public Acts experience allowed her to ‘discover more about what she could do and gain more confidence’. The National Theatre’s Public Arts initiative sees them work with arts and community organisations across the UK to create ambitious new works of participatory theatre.
At the NT The Duchess also met current and former apprentices from its apprenticeship and trainee programme, and saw a fantastic performance inspired by War Horse by schoolchildren from Edith Neville Primary School in Camden, which was created to mark the centenary of Armistice Day. As part of their work with Primary Schools, the @nationaltheatre invited primary schools to see their productions of War Horse, and in partnership with @imperialwarmuseums take part in a creative programme to enrich children’s understanding of the First World War.

I’m really not ready to say goodbye to these people and this gem of a show. Hadestown has been an incredible experience from beginning to end - honestly never felt like this at the end of a contract. “We’re gonna sing it again” - one last time tonight before it heads to #broadway 🌹 #hadestown#nationaltheatre#musicaltheatre
1st day of rehearsals for Tartuffe. Took my usual long walk this morning and then had to hustle to get to the National for a 10:00 am call. Nervous. What if they made a mistake in casting me? Blinding sun on the bridge actually calmed me down. Felt nerdy taking a pic of the building but then thought, “No—do it”

Steps. The steps at the National Theatre to be precise. Love this building and the infinite photo possibilities here. Wanted to get a photo of these for ages, but was never right. I really like this image though. Mission accomplished...
I don’t often post a this, but this shot is from the Directors Box (in Britain, the director gets a box!). Tonight is 1st preview for @hadestown@nationaltheatre which I’ve had the honor to work with @anaismitchell on since 2013. I can’t believe we’re here, I’m aflame and a ghost and so so in love with this show and company, and the promise that spring might come again. Love & gratitude to the company offstage and on, and to every person who helped build this show, past and present.
I missed most of the brightest and warmest london October day for the past ten years because I was working in a theatre (fortunately Nina Raine’s new play “Stories” that has its first preview tonight at the National is superb so that softened the blow a little), but I was glad when I finally emerged, for the brief window before the five hour edit began, that there was one last glorious sun blazon drenching the Southbank before the hazy sunset. Waterloo bridge was also spectacular but I was driving and that wouldn’t have been particularly safe for photos.. #leicam10#35mmsummicron
