About Me

Hey there, dear Theatre Fans!

My name is Zuza and I moved to London in 2019. I’m Polish but have lived in 6 countries so far, studied in Turkey, and volunteered in India – but most of my time I spent in Malaysia while working in Kuala Lumpur for local startups between 2012 – 2018.

From the very first moment I saw a West End show (“Wicked”), I knew this was something special. Since then, I’ve made watching shows in the West End and other parts of London my after-work lifestyle – hence the name of the profile.

I do my best to see a show 2-3 times a week – as I’m catching up for all the lockdown time over the last 2 years. I’m a sucker for a good musical and theatre that portrays real-life stories. But I do enjoy exploring small pub theatres and having a post-show chat with the creative team as well.

My love for stories led me to watch hundreds of plays so far: from big West End productions to smaller, fringe or pub theatre plays. And you know what – you truly never know where you can find the next theatre gem, it could truly be in your neighbourhood’s tiny artistic space!

Apart from my passion for theatre, I’m a digital marketer by profession and I work in the real estate/tech field. I’m also a published author (I write about travelling in Asia – see my books here) and an amateur food photographer (my IG with recipes and photos here).

Theatre themes that I particularly love (this is not an exhaustive list whatsoever!):

  • real-life stories
  • Her-stories (biographies of women)
  • musicals of all kind
  • shows highlighting groups which are still underrepresented in arts: neurodivergent creators, refugee stories…

Find me in one of London's theatres, travelling in Asia or cooking and photographing new recipes in my kitchen. I would try anything once (at least!). My theatre blog:

    I don’t live in the UK, but in another massive musical theatre country. I live in the US- so Broadway Country.

    Well, my journey with musicals truly began when I saw Wicked on Broadway with my mom. This was back in August 2006. True, may not live close to NYC—-but luckily live in a major touring city. Usually in a year, I get to 2-4 musicals. Yes, Wicked may have started my love for musicals, but not a passion- another musical would be responsible for that (March 2013- Les Mis entered my life and turned my love of musicals into more of a passion).

      So nice to find out more about your story too! It must be something about “Wicked” that turns people into theatre fans, isn’t it? 🙂

        My favorite musical theatre character is in Wicked- Elphaba. She is one of the first characters I truly started to relate to

        Wicked taught me certain things about musicals:

        1. About the emotional and complex side
        2. About emotional connection
        3. Even when I first discovered love triangles

        Little did I know- there were some things that still had to be discovered (as in things Wicked wouldn’t make me realize)
