I love Rocky Horror. Yes, it is a bit camp, yes it may not have aged that well, but it is a good night out with catchy songs, audience participation and one of the finest characters to grace the earth Frank‘N’Furter.
A Transylvanian delight, Rocky Horror will have you laughing in delight and dancing in your seat from the moment it begins in all its sparkly, transsexual glory.
Casting has been confirmed for the first ever UK and Ireland tour of Maury Yeston and Peter Stone’s Titanic The Musical.
Alice in Wonderland has been incarnated on more occasions than I care to remember, but one thing’s for sure, the story never gets old (in my humble opinion) and the magic, craziness and wonder remains as curious as it did when I first read the book by Lewis Carroll.
Frank Wildhorn, Jack Murphy and Gregory Boyd have created a whole new take on this classic story bringing bang up to date with the musical Wonderland. In this version Alice is a 40-year-old single mum having the worst birthday of her life.
When you first sit down and take in this bizarre but wonderfully performed musical you might think that you literally have gone mad in your own mind with the number of characters passing through and yet by the end you realise it actually made perfect sense. So maybe we are all a bit mad after all.
Alice is having the Worst Day. The controlling ex she’d have back in a second is getting remarried, her car’s been stolen, she’s got the sack…
My regular readers will know that I’m a huge fan of the West End show Jersey Boys. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen it. So imagine my excitement on hearing the news that it’s arriving in my local theatre. Will the touring production have this “Big Girl” crying for joy or disappointment?
