Sheila Simmonds

Sheila Simmonds isn’t your average Drag Queen (if there even is such a thing). Rather than decking herself out in sequins and belting out Liza Minnelli hits, she creates a fully fledged character obsessed with shopping channels. Straight out of a small town in Australia and decked out in her finest pink polyester two-piece suit, […]

Cosi fan tutte

Pssst… I have a secret to tell you. I’ve never actually seen an opera before. Heading to Pop Up Opera’s production of Cosi  Fan Tutte at the Tea House Theatre, I was more than curious to see how an opera could be staged in a tea shop, but I need not have been worried. Pop Up […]

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Digital Media Night

Digital Media night at Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was never going to end in a sober state so decided to treat myself to a night in the Waldorf Hilton so I didn’t have to worry about getting home. This was my third visit to see Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. A proper British musical that has great acting, […]

Michael Xavier has Tea With Wilma

Can you tell me about some of your career highlights for anyone who may not be familiar with you work? I’ve been in a variety of Musicals from The Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon to Spamalot and Oklahoma. I was nominated for 2 Olivier Awards in 2011 for Love Story (Duchess Theatre) and […]

The Colby Sisters of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

Sibling rivalry, love and adultery. Gossip Girl meets Pride and Prejudice. Five very different sisters are preparing for a family portrait, but beneath their designer gowns and shoes are clashing personalities, mistrust and anger. After an incident at a gala the sisters’ relationships change dramatically… The Tricycle Theatre has a very deep stage, which gives […]

Fashion Victim: The Musical

Fashion Victim: The Musical was never going to be a homage to Pinter or a deep and probing examination of the human psyche. It was always going to be a fun, frothy show with beautiful people and scathing witticisms. On the whole is succeeded in being a fun and entertaining evening, but people going to […]


Rodgers and Hammestein’s Carousel first opened on Broadway in 1945 and then in London’s West End in 1950. The show has been revived many times over the years, most recently the short Opera North UK touring production in 2012. Now, Morphic Graffiti are bringing this classic show back to life in the intimate space of […]

West End Live gives the public a taste of London theatre

The 2014 West End Live (free) concert took place last weekend in London’s Trafalgar Square. Crowds queued for hours to pack out the pigeons home for two solid days of musical theatre bliss. More than 20 current west end shows took part, performing segments of their shows to wet the whistle of London theatre lovers, […]

Songs from the Playground

When I was invited down to Songs From The Playground Volume ll, I knew that if it was anything like Volume 1, I would be in for a great night. The show was performed at The Union Theatre this time around (moving from the Phoenix Artist Club) and you could instantly tell that this was […]

Hobson’s Choice

After a quality start to this summer’s season with a beautifully acted production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre continues its reputation for top notch revivals with this hugely enjoyable take on Harold Brighouse’s tale of family feuding in Salford. Whereas the original was set in the late Victorian […]
