Directed by Michael Strassen and produced by Ginger Quiff Media and Guy Chapman, We Need a Little Christmas from St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden is a hearty bowl of punch you will not want to miss.
There’s no word for “no” in Japanese, which is probably why I am sitting by the bus stop at Tokyo airport about to head to Shinjuku to see Studio Life’s new production of Phantom the untold story designed by Matt Kinley. The artistic director asked me, and I had to say “yes”. I’m here for two days, and so I suspect I will be returning with the same British Airways flight crew as I arrived with this morning. They will, hopefully, be rested. I will have seen 2 3hr shows, had a wealth of meetings, a bit of sleep, a sauna I hope, and some delicious sushi.
