Three of the Featured Show campaigns I’ve been working on recently have been: the first London revival of Athol Fugard‘s A Lesson from Aloes, which must finish its extended, sell-out run at the Finborough Theatre this Saturday 23 March 2019; Tatty Hennessy‘s one-woman adventure story A Hundred Words for Snow, running at the West End’s Trafalgar Studios until 30 March; and the long-overdue London premiere of the Gershwins’ 1927 musical satire Strike Up the Band, striking it Upstairs at the Gatehouse until 31 March.
I managed to squeeze in visits to all three recently. Scroll down for my on-the-night reactions to each.
