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.
Casting has been announced for the West End production of Disney’s Prince of Egypt.
Further West End cast has been announced for the brand-new stage musical The Prince Of Egypt, running at London’s Dominion Theatre from 5 February to 12 September 2020.
Is there such a thing as sheer theatrical joy? Yes, there is, and it comes from an unexpected source: Kwame Kwei-Armah and Shaina Taub’s musical adaptation of Twelfth Night at the Young Vic.
Olivia Vinall and Edward Hogg take the roles of Rosalind and Orlando in Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s As You Like It, with Keziah Joseph and Beruce Khan in the roles of Celia and Oliver.
Kwame Kwei-Armah has announced his first season as the new artistic director of the Young Vic.
Much of my ‘touring’ has been concentrated in Bristol and Chichester; there are a few other UK venues to add to the list, as well as some from my week in New York, of course.
Returning for half-term with some new cast members,
The musical’s just as good as I remember.
It’s heartfelt and funny and really quite moving,
A powerful message but not too reproving.
