When it comes to choosing the perfect place for a date, one that will both impress and delight, a night at the theatre is hard to beat. Whether you be interested in seeing a highbrow play, indulging in a night of comedy, or singing along to a much loved musical, getting theatre tickets is a way of showing someone that you really care and are interested in their interests too. If you have recently found love through the Birmingham dating sites, you have a vast array of theatres at your disposal, including the Birmngham Hippodrome which is soon to show the iconic Evita, and the Birmingham Rep, which has a treat for music lovers with a tribute to Nina Simone arriving next week.
Here are some more theatre treats to consider if you are planning a theatre date night.
Isle of Man
If you are dating in the Isle of Man, you must check out the Edwardian splendour that is the Gaiety Theatre, often described as the jewel in the Manx crown. The theatre plays host to a range of entertainment this Spring, from the comedy of Father Ted, to music from Heather Small, but my pick would be a new, stripped back version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, which promises to tell the story as Shakespeare would.
If your current internet search includes dating Berkshire but you are then not sure where to go for your hot date, you must take a look at the listings for The Watermill Theatre. This small, rural theatre has become one of the most influential in modern times, and the listings for Spring/Summer have acclaimed productions including ‘Crazy for You’ and Terrence Rattigan’s Separate Tables. My pick is Sheridan’s classic ‘The Rivals’, the play where we meet Mrs Malaprop and her hilarious mangling of the English language. This is definitely the choice if you want to laugh your way to a second date.
If you have found love through the Oxfordshire dating sites then the New Theatre Oxford has something suitably steamy and sexy coming your way. Former Strictly Come Dancing regulars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace are bringing their own touch of magic to the theatre next week with their show ‘Tango Moderno’. Expect to see sensuous sharp dance moves and lots of passion from the pair who are still one of Strictly’s greatest partnerships.
Theatre in Belfast
My final port of theatre call is Belfast, the cultured capital city of Northern Ireland. Whether you are currently part of the Belfast singles scene, or are just looking to enjoy a much needed date night, you need to pencil this weekend into your diary, for it is the Belfast Arts Weekender, a glorious mix of theatre, comedy, workshops and gigs that will be happening at venues all across the city. With many of them being free to attend, you will have extra money for food and cocktails, a total win-win situation.
What are your thoughts on taking your date to the theatre? Are you a fan of live shows?
