This time last week I was coming down from the buzz of BEAM:2016. Today, as I was re-reading my notes and other people’s write-ups for this blog, I received news on casting for The Toxic Avenger, starring Mark Anderson (who I saw performing at Beam) and produced by Aria Entertainment’s Katy Lipson (one of the producers who had their portfolios showcased at Beam). So that seems pretty apt.
My biases when it comes to Bar Mitzvah Boy... plus director Stewart Nicholls explains how he's reclaimed this gem, previously a notorious West End flop that ran for only 77 performances.
To be a musical theatre fan, you HAVE to be dedicated. Not only is seeing live theatre a rather expensive hobby but for some people, taking the opportunity to see live theatre requires a lot of travelling. With her nearest theatre being just over an hour away by road, and the glittering west end being over 3 hours away by rail, Becky Wallis feels like she spends a lot of my time travelling - but for theatre, it’s worth it!
