For a really positive feel good evening at the theatre, suitable for all ages, I urge everyone to go and see this wonderful production of Calendar Girls The Musical.
While initially slow to start, Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s musical Calendar Girls beautifully draws the audience into the story and the lives of the calendar girls.
All in all, Calendar Girls is a really enjoyable evening’s entertainment and it’s great to see a British musical flourishing.
Chichester Festival Theatre’s Festival 2019 has been announced by artistic director Daniel Evans. It includes John Simm & Dervla Kirwan in Macbeth, Hugh Bonneville in Shadowlands & Tim Firth’s first solo musical starring James Nesbitt.
Surprisingly The Band – the new musical by Tim Firth interwoven with a plethora of Take That hits – is not a story of how The Band rose to fame, and their ups and downs. Instead the tale is from their fans’ perspective and shows how, despite what life throws at them, they stay lifelong loyal fans.
A slender scenario in search of a storyline, new musical The Band at least has a solid gold score, utilising the extensive pop catalogue of superstar 1990s boy band Take That.
Actress Emily Joyce spoke to Love London Love Culture about starring in The Band, now playing a limited season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket before heading back off on its UK tour.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Tim Firth’s Take That-inspired musical The Band which has arrived in the West End for a limited season.
Superbly directed by Kim Gavin and Jack Ryder, aided by a strong team of equally imaginative creatives, there is so much more to the success of the intriguing musical The Band than one would imagine.
Whether you’re an avid fan of Take That, or you just know a few of the hit songs, get yourself along to The Band for a show full of friendship, laughs, emotion and nostalgia.
