After an avalanche of critical raves, Steven Dexter’s ‘glorious’, ‘incredible’, ‘truly inspiring’ immersive production of Pippin has extended its limited season at London’s Charing Cross Theatre until 3 October 2021. Catch up on the reviews here. Time to get booking!
This bright and colourful production of the musical Pippin at the Charing Cross Theatre is dazzling to watch – even if the story feels a bit flimsy.
This pared-down version of Pippin, now upping the cast size to eight members, reclaims the show again and reignites it with the spirit of the 60s when it was originally conceived and first produced by composer Stephen Schwartz when he was still a student at Carnegie Mellon in 1967.
Cosy and playful family show The Elf Who Was Scared Of Christmas is exactly the type of show that children need after the strangeness of this year.
Overall, GHBoy is an emotionally complex piece that has many elements that make it compelling to watch but it does leave a few questions unanswered story wise.
Actor Marc Bosch plays Sergi in GHBoy which runs at London’s Charing Cross Theatre from 3-30 December 2020. Originally from Barcelona, he made his professional stage debut earlier this year in Justícia at the National Theatre of Barcelona. His television credits include The Split and Sky Rojo.
