Album Review: Combining the music from classic and contemporary musicals, Behind the Curtain – Broadway Composers & Lyricists Sing Their Songs is fascinating and insightful.

A trio of West End cast recordings (well, one’s off-West-End…) show that it is sometimes hard to recapture the stage magic.
Joining the cast of the West End production of Wicked from Monday 23 July 2018 will be Chris Jarman (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) as Doctor Dillamond and current cast member Rosa O’Reilly who takes over the role of Nessarose.
Former EastEnders star David Witts is returning from three years in LA to make his West End debut as Fiyero in Wicked from Monday 23 July 2018.
I want to like the fantasy and the colours of Pippin, to totally give in to the world of the play, but its problems are too many. Though I’m likely to be the humming the opening number for at least the next fortnight.
Jonathan O’Boyle’s production of Stephen Schwartz’s musical transfers to London from Manchester. Here’s a guide to what critics have had to say about the musical’s Southwark Playhouse run… WhatsOnStage: ***** “a gorgeous piece of theatre: endlessly inventive, the magic tricks are up close and real, William Whelton’s Fosse-style choreography is often breathtaking, Maeve Black’s garishly… Read More
This Pippin is one of those productions rarely seen on the fringe. It captures the sparkle of Broadway, transporting it to south London in a whirl of unmissable musical theatre.
What shafts this production of Pippin royally in its fishnet and suspender-clad buttocks is its slavishly dated adherence to Fosse style costume and choreography as though no other interpretation could flatter the music or illuminate the story.
Wicked is a modern classic which remains as strong as ever on tour. With stellar performances from a standout cast, it’s set to be ‘Popular’ with audiences throughout the land.
For a mystical, magical, mystical, whimsical show that will surprise, make sure you get along to the Southwark Playhouse for the limited run of Pippin.
Eleven years since opening at the Apollo Victoria, Wicked is a well-oiled machine but the newest cast show the same enthusiasm and energy as at that unusual first night in 2006 when so many friends of Dorothy turned up dressed as Judy Garland.
Pippin closed this weekend at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre with, yet again, this Northern powerhouse of fringe theatre delivering a stunning take on a Broadway Tony-winner.
Shona White is a rather under-rated (for my money at least) Scottish actress and singer perhaps most famous for stints in Mamma Mia which were 12 years apart, but whose musical theatre credits stretch far and wide.
This long running West End production is still as dramatic and fun as it was when it first opened almost eleven years ago. Putting a fascinating twist onto the original story The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, Wicked is (as the poster proclaims) the untold story of the witches of Oz and is filled with fun and magic that is still captivating audiences.
A stonemason or a delivery boy; a cocktail waitress or a trucker. Whether they be a housewife or factory worker or retiree, the ordinary man is often overlooked. Working is a musical for the layperson, a window into the thoughts of the everyday 1970s American, as interviewed by Studs Terkel in his book of the same name.
