With a huge variety of shows having already been announced for this year, here Love London Love Culture selects some of the best ones for the year ahead….
It has been announced that British actress and singer Samantha Barks has been cast as Elsa in the West End production of Frozen The Musical, opening at the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane in October 2020.
Frozen The Musical will reopen the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane, with previews commencing in October 2020.
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.
This special cinema release of the recent West End revival of 42nd Street captures even more detail of this spectacular production.
As musical Frozen celebrates its first year on Broadway, Disney Theatrical Productions has announced the opening of a new West End production in autumn 2020 at the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
42nd Street, made famous by the 1933 film, is based on the 1932 novel by Bradford Ropes. This glitzy, glamorous revival is set to make your heart soar, and have you tap dancing down the steps of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane singing ‘Lullaby of Broadway’!
The glitzy, glittering, all-singing, all-dancing spectacular 42nd Street continues to light up Theatre Royal Drury Lane as a new Dorothy Brock, Bonnie Langford, arrives in glorious fashion.
Bonnie Langford makes her long-awaited musical theatre return in 42nd Street, a tale of financial depression, showbusiness and the uncertainty that comes with both.
The fact that 42nd Street first came out in 1933 doesn’t date this wonderful revival of the show. It provides some good old-fashioned singing, dancing and tapping. Lots and LOTS of tapping.
Star of stage and screen Bonnie Langford is to join the cast of 42nd Street as the production extends its residency at Theatre Royal Drury Lane for a final time, through to Saturday 5 January 2019.
Lulu returns to the West End after 30 years to join the cast of Broadway classic 42nd Street. From 19 March 2019, she takes over the iconic role of ‘Dorothy Brock’, first played by Sheena Easton, in this five-star production at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
The Almeida Theatre was named London Theatre of the Year at The Stage Awards 2018, the second time the venue has won in the category.
Everyone’s favourite tap dance musical is back on the West End, and, really, shouldn’t 42nd Street always be playing somewhere in the world at any given time?
Any number of shows could have been included in this post; frankly it’s ludicrous that I decided to stick with my whole top 12 idea… As I’ve seen about 90 more individual shows than last year.
Love London Love Culture has been to see lots of high quality productions this year – here’s the top 20 picks.
Here’s a few tips and ideas on the best things to visit in London this week.
The classic Broadway musical taps its way onto the London stage, starring Sheena Easton and Tom Lister. But what have critics been saying about it?
So much hype surrounded this production of 42nd Street and it didn’t disappoint. From the moment the conductor raised his baton the stage and auditorium was alive with the sound of tap shoes!
This revival of the classic Broadway musical is a show stopping spectacle, filled with glamour and tap dancing sequences that won’t fail to thrill. If 2017 doesn’t see a rise in people taking tap lessons after seeing this brilliantly choreographed production then I will be very much surprised.
