    You could say that Lucy St. Louis manifested playing Christine Daaé in The Phantom of the Opera. Since she was a little girl, she trained in ballet and was taught how to sing by an opera teacher. Now, St. Louis achieves a lifelong dream as the latest actress to play Christine Daaé.However, even though she's making history in the role as the first Black actress to play the famous ingenue, she doesn't want her Christine to be defined by race."It should just be Lucy St. Louis playing Christine...

    Rachael Wooding had spent 16 months away from Pretty Woman: The Musical before theatres reopened this summer. Pretty Woman played at the Piccadilly Theatre for a month from February 2020 before theatres were forced to shutdown."Everyone is so happy to be back and in a theatre," said Wooding about returning to the role of Kit in Pretty Woman now at the Savoy Theatre. "I'm still finding Kit but there's definitely a little bit of me in there as well."Based on the classic film starring Julia Roberts...

    Luke Brady had barely opened in the starring role of Moses in The Prince of Egypt before the Stephen Schwartz musical epic at the Dominion Theatre, directed by the composer's son Scott, was shuttered by the pandemic. Some 16 months later, the production survived a second, much-shorter hiatus due to COVID-19 and is now back up and running, much to the delight of its gifted and amiable leading man, who was keen to chat one recent day about the renewed thrill of being back on the boards.The Prince...

    Sutton Foster is getting acclimated to her London life. Speaking just days after she arrived in town during her mandated quarantine, Foster is getting herself set up on the Zoom, finding the most picturesque corner of her new flat, making sure there are no plants or photo frames coming out of her head. She's just arrived before rehearsals start for Anything Goes, the Kathleen Marshall-helmed revival that Foster led on Broadway in 2011 and will now mark her West End debut when it starts...

  • Russell Brand and Ian Rickson

    Ian Rickson was attracted to Russell Brand's "articulacy" when they first met, and now the West End director and the British comedian and author have teamed up for a one-man streaming show Our Little Lives: Shakespeare and Me, which is available to stream from 14 July. Tickets for the stream are available here. "That eloquence made me think that guy has got a brain on him and a soul," Rickson told London Theatre. Rickson seems to have a busy dance card, of late. In addition to direction Our...

    Scott Karim has been gaining deserved recognition of late, whether as Ali Hakim in Oklahoma! at Chichester in the summer of 2019 or at the Bush Theatre later that year as half of Bijan Sheibani's superb two-hander, The Arrival, about the fraught reunion between two half-Iranian brothers. This month, he is opening at the Kiln Theatre as the lone new member to the cast of a return engagement of their acclaimed 2016 production of The Invisible Hand.First seen Off Broadway in 2014, Pulitzer...

    Notting Hill Carnival may be cancelled for the second year running, and swathes of people may not be congregating to dance together for a while, but theatre can transport us anywhere. J'Ouvert at the Harold Pinter Theatre has audiences imagining they're partying all night long.Set at the world-famous carnival, J'Ouvert (pronounced like duvet) follows three friends as they find their personal space in a world that should be theirs. Yasmin Joseph's carnival play premiered at Theatre503 in 2019,...

  • Neil Gaiman is a master of multiple literary forms. The award-winning British author has crafted comic books, novels, television series, movies, audio plays, and more, and his works have been adapted for all mediums, including the theatre. His latest work to hit the stage is The Ocean at the End of the Lane, which premiered at the National Theatre in 2019, and the acclaimed production will transfer to the West End for a run at the Duke of York's Theatre from October 2021. Tickets are available...

    Theatres have been closed for over a year now, but that doesn't mean shows have stopped for good. Virtual productions have entertained us in a year of abnormality, with an online revival of BKLYN streaming this month. Set in New York, the lives of street performers intersect in incredible ways, discovering new stories between them. Last seen at the Greenwich Theatre in 2019, BKLYN is back with a new production, starring Emma Kingston, Marisha Wallace and Jamie Muscato. Best known for playing JD...

  • Sam Tutty was five months into his career-making star turn on the West End in Dear Evan Hansen when the pandemic shut London theatres down last March, since which time none of the big musicals has yet been able to reopen. Far from sitting idle, the industrious 22-year-old has done the odd gig here and there, including a virtual concert of Godspell and, perhaps most remarkably, playing Romeo in a technology-intensive fresh take on Shakespeare's play. That filmed theatre production streams for two...
