Liz Garland has just completed a tour of Peter Gordon’s Secondary Cause of Death and now she’s embarking on a new tour with David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny. I chatted to Liz about her recent roles and what it was that attracted to her to a career in ‘the business’.
Amy Rosenthal is a highly acclaimed playwright and also known for having followed in the footsteps of her father, the late playwright, Jack Rosenthal. Amy is one of the playwrights for Shakespeare in Shoreditch Festival, and I caught up with her to ask her about this latest piece and what else the future holds for this talented lady.
Secondary Cause of Death has landed at Malvern Theatres for the final leg of its tour, written by Peter Gordon and produced by Talking Scarlet. This features the bumbling Inspector Pratt who makes an appearance in a trilogy of Gordon plays (Death by Fatal Murder and Murdered to Death are the other two).
William stars in Of Mice and Men which is touring the UK at the moment, at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from 8 – 12 March 2016 and then continuing around the country, finishing at Leicester Curve Theatre on 28 May 2016.
Jonah stars in Of Mice and Men which is touring the UK at the moment, at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from 8 – 12 March 2016 and then continuing around the country, finishing at Leicester Curve Theatre on 28 May 2016. Hi Jonah, thanks for chatting to Break A Leg Review, How has the tour of Of […]
It was my third visit to see Willy Russell’s much loved production of Blood Brothers, and it’s telling when after a hat-trick of trips, I could return again and watch it another three times, at least.
With a fascinating take on 1940s meeting a surreal and magical world, Erica Whyman has directed a beautiful, melodic and hilarious piece of theatre. This has been by far my favourite production of Shakespeare’s tale of four lovers who’s lives are meddled with due to the mischief and desires of the fairy world.
Liza Pulman is renowned for being a third of the deliciously devilish trio who perform as Fascinating Aida. The resplendent Diva is leaving her cheap flight and Christmas gripes behind her, for now anyway! She’s touring the UK with The Songs of Hollywood and I had the pleasure of chatting with Liza about the show, her career and which of those naughty Fascinating Aida numbers really is her favourite?
He’s best known, these days for playing Dr Clarkson in the hugely popular Downton Abbey, but actor David Robb has had a varied career to date including theatre acting galore! David is currently appearing on stage in Alan Bennett’s Single Spies and I had a chat with him to find out what his memories of Downton Abbey are as well as his opinion on the play he’s currently starring in.
I was very nervous about playing someone so tough and isolated, so in her head and not her heart. I was nervous of the accent (American), the last moment of nudity, of shaving my hair off, of being on stage for the whole 100 minutes…it was probably the most challenging role of my life, but I loved every minute.
Into the Hoods: Remixed promised to make a real impact when they landed at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, a mixture of established dancers from all over the world make up Zoonation Dance Academy and they didn’t disappoint.
Alan Bennett is a playwright that most are familiar with, if not for his plays then certainly for his films (which started as stage productions), History Boys and Lady in the Van. From my personal point of view, he never fails to astound with the topics he chooses to pursue and this particular piece pushes […]
Ged Graham is appearing in a new musical called ‘Ireland’s Call’, which arrives in the UK in March. I spoke to him about his involvement with the show and also chatted to him about his career, so far…
