About Me


Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy treating yourself to a little time indulging your interest in theatre.

My name is Gary and I have created Unrestricted Theatre for people like you who have an interest in theatre. There are many good theatre blogs being written. My intention is to add one more to the list. And my main aim is to encourage you and your friends to get out and see a show more often, through sharing with you my passion for the vast amount of great theatre we have in the UK.

Hard work has gone into thinking about how you might want to visit and what you might like to hear about. I hope that it shows.

All the opinions expressed are purely my own and come from decades of having experienced theatre in a number of exciting ways.

In my theatre life so far I have worked as a……

West End Theatre Manager


Graphic Designer

Marketing Manager

Box Office staff


……..and as a judge of the Perrier Award for Cabaret and Comedy (now known as the Edinburgh Comedy Award)

I am not an academic or a box office. I am just someone who is passionate about all things theatre, and loves to share that enthusiasm with like-minded people, like you!

If I can encourage just one person to go to one show that they wouldn’t otherwise have known about or thought about, then I will consider my time working on this blog well-spent.

Enjoy the show!
