New Lee Hall Play At The Nt 2016

14 March 2014 - 12:00 PM

About northern army regiment in WW! doing opera and theatre in the trenches.

I imagine Lee Hall's creative process for this idea as he walked home from Privates on Parade thinking about the WW1 centenery was a bit like this - "I'm gonna write a play about a bunch of geordies doing something arty, which is unusual right, cos geordies in the past only did mining and homophobia right, ballet!, no I've done that, painting!, no I've done that, theatre and opera! yes!"

I spotted this shortlived Harvey Fierstein Broadway vehicle on the list for the new 65 seat studio space. Should be of interest to collectors on here. Anyone see it in NY?

Drunk - Bridewell Theatre

I know it's not technically a musical but it's from the same choreographer as Chicago in Leicester McOnie? and has a lot of West End fav's in in it like Simon Hardwick, anyone been? I normally hate pure dance shows but I love musicals so wondering if it's worth a shot

In The Next Room Or The Vibrator Play - St James

04 November 2013 - 12:12 PM

Starring Natalie Casey. Is it just me or is Casey struggling to get out of Sheridan Smith's shadow? I wonder wether it's her choices or casting directors but I find it funny how similar her career choices are to Sheridan's. Obviously both were in 2 pints of lager then she went into Legally Blonde and now a historical play about the vibrator like the movie Hysteria with Sheridan in it.
