As his new digital sheet music store New UK Musicals launches, I talk with multi-award winning composer and lyricist Darren Clark about the site and his career.
Looking ahead to some of 2020’s exciting shows, most with an emphasis away from the West End and instead focusing at the London Fringe and across the UK.
In this episode of The Show People Podcast, host Andrew Keates is joined by Josh Boyd-Rochford, chief operating officer and an agent at Simon and How Associates, who also teaches, produces and is forever generating opportunities for theatre-makers.
We spoke with Josh about his entire life, career and lessons learned, as well as answer your questions about how to have the best relationship with your agent.
Episode features include:
Andrew reveals his theatrical tips of things to see and do this August 2018, including productions at The Park Theatre, Brasserie Zedel and the Pleasance Theatre, Edinburgh.
Today’s platform is given to The Wicker Husband with music and lyrics by Darren Clark and a book by Rhys Jennings (who happens to be our special guest’s husband too!) and a song called The Sparrow’s Tale, sung by Laura Wickham with Josh Sneesby on accordion, Anne-Marie Piazza on ukulele, Rachel Dawson on cello and composer Darren Clark on guitar.

It’s an amazing time for diversity of style in “musicals” on both sides of the pond. Hamilton’s hip-hop, street poetry, storytelling, David Yazbek’s middle-eastern infused charmer The Band’s Visit, Jeanine Tesori’s Fun Home (newly arrived at London’s Young Vic while her dazzlingly original Caroline Or Change plays at the Playhouse Theatre).
Any opinion I might have had about Ronald Harwood’s The Dresser inevitably comes tainted with his apparent inability to open his mouth without spouting some kind of crap or other.
