If there was ever a cure for the blues The Cher Show would be it. I left feeling on cloud nine after an evening spent watching this sequinned spectacular which tells the story of how shy girl Cherilyn Sarkisian becomes the ultimate diva and a true female icon.
Turning back time from her Las Vegas residencies, The Cher Show begins in the 1950s with a young Cherilyn Sarkisian who’s longing to be a star, and progresses through her various ventures, successes and failures up to the modern day. Taking on the role of the musical icon, are three superstars who share (cher) the role and show her at various stages of her life. Debbie Kurup plays the Star, Danielle Steers is Lady and Millie O’Connell is the youngest, Baby.
So many female performers and creatives currently at the top of their game in a male-centric world. This makes The Cher Show an extra special, female empowering watch.
The premise sees Cher (Debbie Kurup) about to go onstage for her farewell tour. Facing a crisis of confidence the singer addresses her younger selves (Danielle Steers and Millie O’Connell), delving into her past (or, ahem, wanting to ‘Turn Back Time’).

Turbine Theatre’s adult panto Cinderella: The Socially Distanced Ball is a festival of filthy fun that you can’t help but love.
There was a moment in the last couple of days as I listened to ‘Make It Right’ for the umpteenth time that I wondered whether I’d been a bit harsh to The Prince of Egypt when it opened in late February.
A dazzling cast, a powerful score and mesmerising choreography make The Prince of Egypt a real spectacle to watch.
For spectacle and energy, The Prince of Egypt is worth a visit. It’s not going to change your life but it’ll provide a fun few hours of superfluous theatricality that looks and sounds very pretty.
In The Prince Of Egypt highly committed cast does their best to ride out inconsistent production choices to deliver work that fills the Dominion well.
The Prince Of Egypt, the brand-new musical that officially opens this week at London’s Dominion Theatre, has added seven extra weeks to its limited engagement with 100,000 new tickets now on sale to 31 October 2020.

Susie McKenna’s highly accomplished and atmospheric production of Blues in the Night is filled with heaps of personality and heart that is reflected in the stunning performances from all of the cast.
Actress Debbie Kurup chatted to Emma Clarendon about starring in Blues in the Night at the Kiln Theatre.
Debbie Kurup chatted to Emma Clarendon about starring in The Best of… Rock Musicals and the Donmar Warehouse production of Sweet Charity.
This is as unconventional production of Sweet Charity as you’re likely to see. Set firmly in the art milieu of Andy Warhol’s Factory, it’s so perfectly, silver-foil-wrapped acid-tabbed 1967 it’s like you were actually there.
Nowhere near enough charm in this Sweet Charity for my liking. Josie Rourke’s farewell to the Donmar Warehouse is grey rather than silver.
