Shes also worked with ramin karimloo who is obviously one of camerons favourites.  I dont doubt for one second her contacts/relations helped her appeal to casting directors

wow how wrong you are crafty miss.  Mcfly have always been around, and whilst never massive, have constantly done well.  The McBusted thing came out of a one off 10th Anniversary concert at the albert hall where they had a couple from Busted on stage. It was a big hit and now they are doing a greatest hits type tour using both bands material.  Then they go back to their next album.  Because they don't go after the limelight don't assume they are 'defunct'.  They are very much in control of their own careers and music which in this day and age is rare and admirable

She could indeed learn a lot from her brother, and his bandmates who manage the fans and social media world perfectly.

She has been using her youtube site and twitter for self promotion for ages, you can't put yourself out there and expect only positive comments, no one is going to be liked 100% of the time and if she wants to survive in life (let alone the cut throat entertainment business) she needs to toughen up and get a grip.  She is coming off as a silly spoiled little girl.  If you are sensitive then DONT use the media (social or otherwise) to further your cause.

I completely disagree with tagging in people in tweets where you are saying something negative because I bet you wouldn't go up to them.and say face to face what you are tweeting about.

However if she is searching twitter for her own name (not the first to do so in fairness) you have to expect to find something you wish you hadnt seen. People who do this do seem to be on the more fragile side of the performer world.

To me James Blunt has to be the best at replying to negative tweets, for anyone who doesn't follow him I recommend checking him out, funny guy

Robert Lindsay appeared in the s******* TV show of ALL time

Which was sustained WAY past it's sell by date

Even after most of the supporting cast moved onto better things

He stayed on

A show which makes Miranda seem positively cerebral

And each night he puts on makeup and costumes to sing and dance onstage

In a half empty theatre

That's his life in perspective


With him and Anya Reiss opening their mouths on Twitter like they were having faeces flowing forth freely

It amazes me

Totally meaningless people with complete ignorance toward their actual minuscule value in the grand scheme of the world

If you think My Family is the worst show of all time you clearly havent seen much TV

I agree. I only sit stalls or dress circle because I want to feel involved in the show. Too far back and I feel disconnected

Plus he is tagging in the shows and people he is commenting on in his reviews, which I find poor form and to be honest you are asking for comeback if you do that

#300269 Bedknobs And Broomsticks - Ideal For The Stage?

And if you've seen the original dvd release that had the cut scenes put back in (albeit with some dodgy dubbing) will know there are extra songs including one for angela lansbury and the mr brown character plus extended versions of ones in the later dvd edits and tv edits

#300255 Bedknobs And Broomsticks - Ideal For The Stage?

Posted Titan on 12 April 2014 - 03:06 PM

I recently re watched this and it struck me how well this could transfer to the stage.  The score is strong, with some additional songs to flesh it out (like in mary poppins)

The animation segments would obviously not be animated but you could go more theatrical and use bright colours to differentiate between the two worlds as ww2 england is more muted in tones

Time would have to be spent working on the magic, especially on the final battle.  Also the flying for when she is on her broom. The bed could be done like chitty or the glass elevator and maybe projections too like the tornado in wizard of oz

If they could make it happen, the final battle could see miss price flying over the audience as the armour walks through the auditorium towards the nazis on stage

Plus theres moments like Portobello Road that would give an old fashioned show stopping dance number

It would be expensive but I think it could be quite a spectacular show

#300148 Time To Support Theatre On Forum!

Posted Titan on 11 April 2014 - 05:33 PM

The forum also has people in or linked to the industry, or who have informed opinions on why a show might not do well based on facts/history etc.  Obviously its not always accurate as one thing is always certain, theatre is unpredictable.  

Theatre is a business, and that business interests many people on here so when a show is announced and people predict it won't do well etc its not necessarily a comment on the production itself but on the market and business sense.  Why some shows succeed and some fail is always an interesting topic, and that is often what is discussed here.  After all, no one on here has any power in the real world, shows won't open or close on the word of this forum. Its a place for fans of theatre to discuss various aspects of the theatre world

I agree that 'its rubbish' type comments are not helpful and there are some snarky comments but on the whole this forum is constructive and informative.  But I would say people who are constantly positive and put down people who say something negative for fear of upsetting those poor actors on the stage are just as, if not more, annoying (and fake)
