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.
How many creatives does it take to make a one-man musical? The answer can be “quite a few”. And that it is in the case of SUPERHERO, the British one-man – or rather “one-dad” – musical now receiving its world premiere at London’s Southwark Playhouse.
The ending to an 80-minute long, one-man musical, in which all elements seem stacked against it, epitomises the journey that both solo performer Charlie Bradley (Michael Rouse) and audience take together. It’s the story of his battle to keep his daughter in his life, after a stupid mistake ruins his picture-perfect family unit.
At the centre of the story are Nat and Keith, a couple who are disenchanted with their lives and in need of some serious life changes. Until Quentin Dentin comes along with a promise to make them happier and help sort out their lives. But who is he and where does he come from?
There’s a lighthouse on a barren stretch of America’s east coast that has seen more than it’s fair share of tragedy. It’s now the height of WWII and the building is inhabited by the surly Miss Lily, her Japanese housekeeper Mr Yasuhiro, and a couple of ghosts. A young boy arrives.
Not long left to see two Off-West End musicals I can recommend: The Wild Party at The Other Palace and The Sorrows of Satan at Tristan Bates Theatre. Here’s why I think you should.
The world premiere of a brand new one-man musical will be the first musical to be performed in Southwark Playhouse’s Little space. The Superhero – written by Richy Hughes, Joseph Finlay and Michael Conley – runs from 28 June to 22 July 2017, with a press night on 30 June.
The cast for the premiere of Duncan Sheik musical Whisper House features Simon Bailey, Nicholas Goh, Simon Lipkin, Niamh Perry and Dianne Pilkington.
