We were invited to the exclusive press launch of Lord of The Dance: Dangerous Games at the London Palladium. Both Michael Flately and Nadine Coyle were present and correct, so we managed to ask them a few questions about the show (when we weren’t chowing down on a pastry or two!)
In July Daniel Koek, famous for his turn as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, hosted an intimate evening of music at the Royal Albert Hall to launch his fabulous new album, High. Not only were we lucky enough to secure an invite to the Champagne fueled evening, but we caught up with Daniel After for an exclusive interview about his work! Check out what he has to say about his work, see an exclusive video from the launch and read our thoughts on the night!
We were lucky enough to get some inside information on life on the New London Theatre stage as one of the breathtaking horses from new War Horse Puppeteer, James Donovan, a new West End theatre talent.
! I remember seeing Cats at the New London Theatre when I was about 10 years old and being so inspired that all I did for weeks was sing (screech) MEMMMMORIEEES at the top of my little lungs. I also really wanted a tail for a long time after the show (*cough*stillwantone*cough*) so imagine my delight at being invited to the super duper press launch for the new show at the fabulous London Palladium! Oh, and there’s wine? Honey count me in!
The heat is certainly on in Saigon as one of the hottest musicals of all time returns to the West End! That is right! Miss Saigon is back with bang! Hurrah! We caught up with one of the hugely talented members of the cast, Tamsin Carroll, who plays Ellen, Chris’ devoted wife who is inadvertently caught up in a love triangle with his past lover, Kim.
Broadway sensation, Peter Lockyer, makes his West End debut in the longest running musical in the world; Les Misérables! Having played the role of Marius on Broadway as part of his early career, Peter has graduated to the daddy of all roles: the one and only JEAN VALJEAN!
Katherine Kingsley is the rare kind of performing chameleon that seems to be able to do it all; sing, dance, act, be funny, and of course be fabulous! We have admired her career for several years having seen her perform superbly in West End classics such as The 39 Steps, Singin’ in the Rain and a Midsummer Night’s Dream. Katherine’s latest venture is being the latest scoundrel on the block in the magnificent new musical; Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
We love a bit of Once, we really do! Following our hoot of an interview with original London cast Guy and Girl, Declan Bennett and Zrinka Civitesic, we thought it would only be right to ensnare the new Guy on the block, Arthur Darvill (who also played everyone’s favourite male nurse, Rory, in Doctor Who!)
I caught up with three stars of the newest musical on the block: I Can’t Sing! I was delighted to chat with Cynthia Erivo, Alan Morrissey and Simon Lipkin about their roles in the X Factor inspired show!
Rachel Tucker has taken the West End by storm since graduating from reality show I’d Do Anything. Her iconic roles have included Meat and Scaramouche in We Will Rock You and a staggering 3 years as Elphaba in Wicked! I caught up with Rachel to chat about her future.
