Can you stick to the beat? Looks like it’s a prerequisite for the cast of the new beatbox-infused adaptation of Alex Wheatle’s award-winning 2016 Young Adults’ novel Crongton Knights. Sneak a peek inside the rehearsal room – and then get booking!
To me, COPS, set in 1950s Chicago, comes across as so authentically period that it feels like it must be a finely minted revival. But it’s not: it’s a new play. Even more surprising then that it’s written by an author I’d never heard of before.

Curtains, the murder mystery musical comedy by Chicago and Cabaret creators Kander & Ebb, had its Broadway premiere in 2007 in a production starring Frasier‘s David Hyde Pierce. Why has it taken so long for it to at last receive its West End premiere? And why is it so very perfect for the West End? […]
The post Post-show video and photos: Jason Manford on why Kander & Ebb’s <em>Curtains</em> is made for the West End appeared first on Terri Paddock.
It’s official! Christmas is coming up fast. And that, of course, means it’s pantomime season. How do you choose which of the biggies to see this year? Why choose? See the seven (or maybe twelve) top pantomimes in one hilarious show care of Potted Panto.

After Tania Amsel’s new play Blood Orange the night before, I returned to the Old Red Lion Theatre for Paragon Theatre’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ ghost story The Signalman. Dickens in December and it isn’t A Christmas Carol? This is a must-see for aficionados and newcomers alike.

How worried are you about the myriad pressures on the NHS today? Were you be thinking about the future of the NHS when you go to the ballot box?
I had my own introduction to Ginger Johnson and Sink the Pink a year ago when I chaired a Q&A for How to Catch a Krampus, the first in a new queer trilogy at the Pleasance Theatre, which also marked the drag collective’s first-ever theatrical residency after a decade of mega club nights, festivals and glitter-doused parties.
How do you get SIX MILLION followers on Twitter? As someone who spends all day most days on social media, I’m staggered by the very notion. It must require divine intervention… of sorts. David Javerbaum has achieved it.
What part do costumes play in branding for The Play That Goes Wrong around the world? How are they made durable enough to survive eight performances a week of one of Theatreland’s most physical productions?
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A programme, and the fourth in a monthly Mischief Theatre series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock talks to the cast and creatives for brand-new show Magic Goes Wrong, which follows Groan Ups in the company’s year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre. Got any questions?
