I laughed my head off watching Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em, and afterwards, got onto the wonderfully kitsch 1970s set myself to interview stars Joe Pasquale and Sarah Earnshaw and writer-director Guy Unsworth.
I loved the recent outrageously lavish West End production of 42nd Street at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, but was annoyed I didn’t get a chance to return to see the recast before it finished earlier this year – which saw Bonnie Langford return the adaptation of this Hollywood Golden Age musical 25 years after she first starred as the show’s young ingenue.
I’ve been remiss in not getting back up to Kilburn, where I lived for many years, since the reopening of Kiln Theatre. But I was able to put that right with a trip to artistic director Indhu Rubasingham’s world premiere production of Anupama Chandresekhar’s When the Crows Visit.
Ahead of my post-show Q&A tonight, I was at the Vaudeville Theatre for the official opening of the world premiere of Mischief Theatre’s new comedy Groan Ups last Thursday (10 October 2019).
I was disappointed not to see Emma Rice’s adaptation of Angela Carter’s much-loved final novel Wise Children last year at the Old Vic Theatre or on its extensive tour, but delighted to be given another chance to catch it last week thanks to More2Screen.
Not long left to see two of the Featured Show campaigns I’ve been working on recently: Crystal Clear at the Old Red Lion Theatre and Sherlock Holmes and The Invisible Thing, which takes London’s most famous detective home to Baker Street. Both finish this weekend!
