A stream of A-listers including Paul McCartney, Bryan Cranston, Judi Dench, Henry Cavill, Whoopi Goldberg, Jack Black, Steve Martin and more have contributed to a music video for ‘The Hero – A West End & Friends Tribute’ alongside stars of London’s West End (Charlie Stemp, Marisha Wallace, Cleve September, Kerry Ellis and oodles more #StageFaves). Everyone involved wished to pay thanks to servicemen and women around the world and to raise money for the UK charity, Help For Heroes.
Fresh from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Chris Jarman joins the West End cast of Wicked from 23 July 2018 alongside current cast member Rosa O’Reilly who takes over the role of Nessarose.
Ex EastEnder David Witts has been wooed back from three years in LA to play Fiyero in Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre this summer.
Our #StageFavesSongOfTheWeek this week was from THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA so we thought we'd continue the trend! This weeks #PalladiumPicks is also from the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic, this time with Ben Forster singing "Music Of The Night".
WICKED has announced the opening of its (wait for it!) 25th new booking period. Over 500,000 new tickets for the smash-hit, telling the untold story of the witches of Oz, are now being released, with booking extended to Saturday 24 May 2019. (And by the way, we love this romantic pic of current Glinda and Fiyero, Sophie Evans and Bradley Jaden.)
Good news for phans! Ben Forster, the masked man who led THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA's 30th birthday gala celebrations this past October, has extended his run. He'll remain in the show, along with Celinde Schoenmaker and Nadim Naaman as Christine and Raoul, until 2 September. Do you know who else calls the Paris Opera House home these days?...
