The cast and creative team involved in Public Domain, streamed from Southwark Playhouse, succeeded in creating a brilliant show which is timely and incredibly thought-provoking.
Public Domain is a verbatim musical winner which lifts the lid on life online and joins an august group of productions streamed from Southwark Playhouse. Strongly recommended.
Francesca Forristal and Jordan Paul Clarke spoke to Emma Clarendon about their new musical Public Domain being live streamed from the Southwark Playhouse on 15 and 16 January 2021.
While Matthew Warchus at the other end of the Cut from the Young Vic, may have the Old Vic that he presides over (without any subsidy) dark, too, actually the theatre has been in use regularly and has continued to produce throughout the pandemic, with its “In Camera” broadcasts of live performances that have been staged in its empty auditorium.
Luke Bateman and Michael Conley have written a piece in The Fabulist Fox Sister which may still have the odd rough edge, and which rushes through their subject’s string of misfortunes later in life, but which charms with its songs and sense of showbusiness.
This innovative production by ALP Musicals of Hilmi Jaidin’s new digital musical Shift+Alt+Right points towards the future of new musical theatre.
The next show announced in Southwark Playhouse’s winter season is Nick Payne’s Constellations starring Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo and Oliver Johnstone and directed by Jonathan O’Boyle.
Wasted is about the Bronte siblings from childhood to death, as they attempt to follow their artistic – and romantic – ambitions.
Empowering in many aspects, somehow elements of the story feel as though they get lost in this ambitious new musical.
Wasted at the Southwark Playhouse is an explosion of feminist energy, a dark and angsty account of the lives of the four most famous Brontë siblings.
Any musical can only be as good as its underlying book and Wasted, based upon the lives of the four Brontë siblings (three girls and a boy) is written around a very strong core.
Adam Lenson directs Natasha Barnes in the new rock musical Wasted about the Brontës. Here, Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews…
Adam Lenson directs this revival of John Kander and Fred Ebb’s musical The Rink, currently playing at the Southwark Playhouse. Here’s what critics have so far made of it…
It’s a short run at Southwark Playhouse but I truly feel this production deserves several more spins around ‘The Rink‘ and definitely has a future life.
For a technically brilliant show with performances that will leave you wanting to return to the ‘Coloured Lights’ again and again, go see The Rink. This is musical theatre at it’s best – let’s just hope that the rink keeps rolling in London.
Gemma Sutton will star as Angel, alongside Caroline O’Connor in the first London revival in 20 years of Kander and Ebb’s The Rink.
If a successful future is to be unlocked for Lock and Key then much work is needed on its book. The show is crying out for credible characters who engage in plausible human interaction, and horror that truly suspends our disbelief.
Renowned Broadway, West End and film actress Caroline O’Connor will star as Anna in the first London revival in 20 years of Kander and Ebb’s THE RINK, having understudied the role of Angel in the 1988 London production of the show.
Twenty years after it was first seen in the West End, Kander and Ebb’s Tony and Olivier Award-winning Broadway musical THE RINK will get its first major London revival in the new year at Southwark Playhouse.
Olivier Award winner George Maguire (Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for Sunny Afternoon) leads the cast of Ryan Scott Oliver’s 35mm: A Musical Exhibition at The Other Palace this month.
