West End musical theatre group, The Barricade Boys, have announced a massive line-up of guest stars for their limited Christmas Cabaret season, which runs at London’s The Other Palace Studio from 5 to 23 December.
After an acclaimed run in San Diego, the UK premiere of Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Musical Radio Play comes to The Bridge House Theatre this Christmas in a production directed by Artistic Director Guy Retallack (It’s A Wonderful Life, Thrill Me) London, 1947. In a busy radio studio, the cast and crew are assembled for a very special recording of this year’s biggest Christmas hit movie.
Like many UK Kristin fans, I saw Wicked when it opened back in 2006, subsequently listened to the Broadway recording and fell in love with the cast. I then entered an obsessive phase where I watched all Kristin videos, listened to every song she’d ever sung, read every interview she’d done and was generally that annoying fan that could talk about nothing else.
“We could see this was a bad one immediately. The sky was glowing.”Touted as an evening of song, dance and poetry, Songs anA fundraising gala evening pulled together in the space of a week by the superhuman efforts of actor Giles Terera and producer Danielle Tarento, it was a concert for the hundreds of families made homeless and the relatives of those who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire.
The tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire was a devastating loss but a small mercy has been the way in which so many have responded in offering various means of help and support. Adding to this remarkable group are Giles Terera and Danielle Tarento, who have combined forces to speedily put together Songs and Solidarity – a West End fundraising gala evening of song, dance and comedy for the hundreds of families made homeless and the relatives of those who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire.
Rachel Tucker is a superstar of the stage and is currently on a long awaited tour around the UK before heading to New York for a stint at the iconic 54 Below. Now I knew Rachel’s voice was good from the I’d Do Anything days, videos online and of course from seeing her in Wicked but I was completely blown away when I saw her solo performance last night.
Rachel Tucker is basically theatrical royalty, with a an impressive resume, an incredible voice and an extremely dedicated following. Currently touring the UK and about to start her second stint at the Zedel in London, Rachel was lovely enough to discuss what we can expect in her concerts, how she stays motivated, her dream role and much more.
