Opening in the West End in July 2017 Sienna Miller and Jack O'Connell will star in Benedict Andrews' (Young Vic) production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The Tennessee Williams masterpiece will be at the Apollo Theatre for a strictly limited 12-week run beginning previews 13 July, ahead of a 24 July press night. The run is set to end 7 October.    

Oh, those lazy hazy days of the 60s. Cilla doing her thing, Petula Clark giving music life. Swinging London was the place to be. New music was flooding the scene daily. And then there was Dusty Springfield. Educated at a convent school, with a slightly dysfunctional family and being somewhat of a tomboy, music was, perhaps it can be inferred, her release.

I recently made my third visit to the ‘Land of Lola’ with Kinky Boots, however, it was my first time seeing it under the '16/'17 cast, and my love for this show only seems to grow more with each visit. 

Multi-award winning actress, writer and comedian Miranda Hart will make her West End debut bringing life to the role of Miss Hannigan in Nikolai Foster's production of Annie. The musical, based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strips, has become a beloved classic spawning multiple award-winning Broadway and West End runs as well as critically acclaimed films. 

Around the same time last year, I saw Les Miserables on stage for the first time. A year later and I couldn’t resist a revisit, and I fell in love all over again. Therefore I thought I’d remind you of why this show is a must-see!

Not once, but twice this year will theatregoers have the chance to witness one of the finest actors ever to tread the boards. Imelda Staunton will be starring in the revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf at London's Harold Pinter Theatre. Later on, she will be at the National in a revival of Sondheim’s Follies.
