Academy Award-Winning Jim Broadbent Makes West End Return In A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol Tuesday 01 September 2015

Academy Award-winning actor Jim Broadbent makes his long-awaited return to the stage to play Scrooge in a new version of A Christmas Carol adapted by Patrick Barlow from Charles Dickens' classic story of greed, grief, ghoulish ghosts and eleventh-hour redemption.

BLOG : Hedwig Is Coming To London!... Hopefully.

Hedwig And The Angry Inch Tuesday 01 September 2015

It was recently announced that Hedwig And The Angry Inch (a show about an East German, genderqueer musician named Hedwig Robinson) is having its final performance on Broadway on September 13th, and with it came the news that a West End production might be on the cards. Reports are conflicting, creator John Cameron Mitchell was quoted as saying the show is “definitely coming to the West End,” while composer Stephen Trask countered, saying there are still no definite plans for a transfer. However, it got me thinking about who I'd like to see play the genderqueer rock star here in London in the future.

BLOG : Off West End Reviews: Sweet Charity At Cadogan Hall

Phantom of The Opera Monday 31 August 2015

On Wednesday I went to see the limited run of the off-west end version of Sweet Charity at Cadogan Hall which starred a host of stars including Denise Van Outen, Kimberley Walsh, Kerry Ellis, Micheal Xavier and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.   This was another show I knew little about and I had only brought in tickets in a slightly biased form as a long-term Girls Aloud fan who was itching to catch Kimberley Walsh perform again. However the entire cast and story intrigued me and I love theatre and the excitement of not knowing what to expect.

BLOG : Do We Demand Too Much Of The West End?

Wicked Thursday 27 August 2015

When we go to the West End, we expect a spectacle. And, when we're paying well into the hundreds for a ticket, why should we not? We've paid to see helicopters, falling chandeliers, flying people, barricades … But what about shows that don't – can't, even – offer such impressive visuals? Are we pushing away productions that might be incredible, simply because they don't meet our demands for clever tricks?

BLOG : So You're Not A Musical Theatre Fan... The Best Introductory Musicals!

The Lion King Tuesday 25 August 2015

Not everyone shares the same passion for the theatre as us thespians do, but for those who really don't fancy watching a hardcore musical, there are plenty of shows on offer that can serve as 'introductory' musicals...

BLOG : What Came First? Hit Shows That Have Played London’s Greatest Theatres: Round Two!

Phantom of The Opera Tuesday 25 August 2015

Shows open and close in the West End so frequently that it becomes hard to keep up with what’s playing when and where, so today I thought I’d take you all back in time once again and talk you through major shows that have played some of London’s most renowned theatres.
