  • Celinde Schoenmaker The Secret Garden

    Even though The Secret Garden is a three-time Tony Award-winning musical, the two London productions of the musical have only played for a collective total of 22 weeks. But, it's coming back to the West End in style, thanks to a concert production coming to the London Palladium next month.Based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's best-selling novel, the musical tells of a young girl sent to England to live with family she's never met, with music by Lucy Simon and a book and lyrics by Marsha Norman....

  • Janie Dee: London Climate Change Festival

    With protest groups like Extinction Rebellion gluing themselves to buildings and climbing on trains and planes to spread their message, as well as young activists like Greta Thunberg inspiring millions of children to become involved in the fight for the planet, conversations on climate change are beginning to be heard. Starting next month, the London Climate Change Festival, based at the Charing Cross Theatre will run at the London venue from 23rd March to 16th May. Figures from the worlds of...

  • The Haystack

    If you had the equipment to be able to find out anything you wanted to online, how deep would you search? That's the decision two computer geeks have to face as they're recruited into the national defence security team, using cutting-edge technology to investigate a questionable journalist.Exploring the consequences of surveillance in the present day, Al Blyth's world premiere of The Haystack asks what happens when methods develop faster than the law.Ahead of the official opening night, we asked...

  • Sara Bareilles and Gavin Creel

    Approaching its one-year anniversary in the West End, Waitress follows Jenna Hunterson, a small-town woman who enters a pie-making competition in the hopes of winning a cash prize to start a new life. It's been the talk of the town in recent weeks, with Desi Oakley flown over from the US to step into the production after the lead and covers were unable to perform, proving that the show really does go on in the West End.But, it's not often that a musical's composer themself appears in their own...

  • Gary Beadle and Jasper Britton

    The lives of two men who find themselves together on a subway platform are the sole characters in Cormac McCarthy's 2006 play The Sunset Limited. After a world premiere in 2006 and a subsequent film adaptation in 2011 starring Samuel L. Jackson, Terry Johnson directs the play's London premiere at the Boulevard Theatre.Opening tonight at the Soho venue, we spoke with The Sunset Limited co-stars Gary Beadle and Jasper Britton about the big questions asked in the show, performing at the Boulevard...

  • The West End may have produced bigger musical theatre stars than Jenna Russell, but few, I'd wager, who radiate more sincerity, both onstage and off, or whose performances elicit a warm glow of empathy in audiences.In shows from Michael Grandage's revival of Guys and Dolls, for which she earned an Olivier nomination in 2006, and Sunday in the Park with George, for which she won the Olivier the following year, to Merrily We Roll Along (another Olivier-nominated performance), Urinetown and Fun...

  • Jac Yarrow

    More than one critic - myself included - reached for the superlative "a star is born" when describing the West End debut of Jac Yarrow in the title role of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat: "He received a spontaneous standing ovation on the first night at the end of his rendition of "Close Every Door"; but this is a performance that will open every door to him from here on in."Opening night was just four days ago when I met him backstage at the London Palladium, London's premiere...

  • Sweet Charity

    Josie Rourke's final production of her seven-year tenure as artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse opens this week, as she directs Anne-Marie Duff in Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields and Neil Simon's Sweet Charity.Alongside Duff's Charity, an optimistic New York dancer-for-hire with terrible luck with men, is Lizzy Connolly as fellow dancer and friend Nickie. Connolly makes her Donmar debut having previously starred in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy, On The Town at Regent's Park Open Air...

  • Admissions

    Set in the admissions department of an American high school, Joshua Harmon's play Admissions poses a lot of tricky questions around privilege and quotas, and proves that answering these questions isn't as simple as it may seem. The play stars Alex Kingston, the head of the department who is pushing for better inclusion in the school's student body, and better representation across the institution's image. But her morals are put to the test when her own son faces the realities on the other end of...
