In an impressive Duncan double-act, The Dame transfers from the Edinburgh Fringe to London’s Park Theatre and makes for compelling theatre. In her first play, Katie Duncan writes, for father Peter to enact, the fictional story of Ronald Roy Humphrey a decaying dame in the twilight of his career, whose working life has revolved around winter pantomimes and summer seasons in end of the pier music hall.
The Dame is a powerful and poignant look into the fragile creature behind the painted smile and is brought to life by a captivating performance by Peter Duncan.
London’s Park Theatre has announced its new January to June 2019 season featuring seven world and four UK/European premieres.
Due to phenomenal demand, Eugenius! The Musical is to transfer to the West End for a strictly limited winter season.
I wonder if a new genre is forming in musical theatre? Let’s call it ‘cartoon rock’ – because products like Eugenius!, Six and Knights of the Rose have little in common with the canons of Lloyd Webber, or Rodgers and Hammerstein.
Rob Houchen, Neil McDermott, Emily Tierney, Alex Bourne and Simon Thomas are joining the cast of British musical Eugenius! when it returns for a six-week season at The Other Palace from 1 September 2018.
After a six-week run at The Other Palace at the beginning of the year and a one-off West End concert at the London Palladium in 2016, Warwick Davis and Kevin Wood are delighted to announce the return of the original British musical EUGENIUS! at The Other Palace from 1 September to 7 October 2018. Further details and casting to be announced.
Having first appeared in a concert performance at the London Palladium in 2016, Eugenius! is a hilariously nostalgic musical by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins which has grown into a confident and joyous production.
Want amazing acrobatics? Check! Love a bit of magic? Check! In need of a laugh? You will certainly get plenty of those in this entertaining production of Robin Hood.
Warwick Davis’ musical comedy gets a full run at The Other Palace in the new year after a one-off West End concert at the London Palladium in 2016.
Quincy meets Crossroads as the latest adaptation of a Peter James thriller, Not Dead Enough, hits the King’s Theatre. Literally. There’s a killer on the loose in Brighton.
Shaun McKenna’s sharp adaptation of the original novel by Peter James has plenty of intensity to leave audiences heads spinning, while Ian Talbot’s production is sharply focused when it comes to solving the mystery, but throwing in DS Roy Grace’s relationship with Cleo it can become easily distracted.
Million Dollar Quartet offers up some of the finest cuts of vintage rockabilly and rock n roll procured from some of the most legendary names in the history of music.
Highly entertaining: Pulsating and vibrant, Million Dollar Quartet provides a pleasing, high-tempo fictionalised account of one of the great jam sessions in the history of Rock’n’Roll.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical and West End hit, today reveals casting for the red-hot rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza which appears at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall.

Following a huge hiccup with regards to ticket collection and consequently a late running show, this world premiere concert of the new musical – in a one-off performance at the West End’s London Palladium on 29 June 2016 – was delightful, bizarre and completely unique.
Eugenius! makes for a curious tale. Tracking an implausible yarn of two brothers separated at birth, this ain’t no Blood Brothers, nor, with its focus upon geeky adolescents is it much of a Loserville either.
Dark energy: There is considerable entertainment in Peter James’ The Perfect Murder, an unremarkable, grimly humorous murder mystery elevated by the efforts of Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace.
