It’s all in a name this week as our editor Lisa Martland picks out her Top Picks from the last week’s theatre in the West End, London Fringe or beyond.
We love a starry debut, especially on opening night in a huge theatre: a 21-year-old not yet through drama school making a stonking, belting first professional appearance in a title role. So Laurence Connor knew what he was doing when he cast young Jac Yarrow in Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
In a new series, My Theatre Mates editor picks out five of her Top Picks from the week that was in theatre (18-24 March 2019), ranging from Libby Purves’ return (after a few months’ break) to Susan Elkin pondering what the weather will bring as she begins a string of visits to open-air theatre.
Jac Yarrow will take the lead role in the new production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium. The show plays a strictly limited 11-week season from 27 June to 8 September 2019 (press night is 11 July).
Jason Donovan will return to the London Palladium in the new production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to star as the Pharaoh. The show plays a strictly limited 11-week season from 27 June to 8 September 2019 (press night is 11 July).
I will remember 2018 for many things, primarily as the year of courage. No, not shown by me but by all the brilliant children I have worked with over the past year on Joseph and Nativity! The Musical among other projects.
