Will the musical be a big hit? Perry thinks so!

Good things come to those who wait.

After much-anticipation actors Sheila Atim and Giles Terera announced the nominations for the Olivier Awards 2019 today and it wasn’t long before the celebrations began for two West End musicals in particular. The acclaimed gender-bending revival of Sondheim’s Company and powerful Canadian show Come From Away are recognised in nine categories each. The King and I and the Queens of Six The Musical are close behind with six and five nominations respectively. Who do you think will come out top on the night?
StageFaves vlogger Perry O'Bree was on hand to help Faves founder Terri Paddock capture the brilliance of Bernadette Robinson at the West End post-show Q&A at the transfer of tour-de-force one-woman show SONGS FOR NOBODIES. Watch the full Q&A, and Perry's take on it, here...
Bernadette Robinson is currently wowing the West End in the brilliant transfer of SONGS FOR NOBODIES, in which she breathes new life into five legendary performers - Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas - and five ordinary women whose lives were changed by their brushes with them. We asked her four questions about each leading lady and learnt some lesser-known facts about the stars...
Just a few days until SONGS FOR NOBODIES returns, transferring to the West End for a strictly limited season. Why did critics go crazy for Bernadette Robinson in this one-woman spectacular last year at Wilton's Music Hall? We've rounded up the rave reviews - time to get booking! (And don't miss our competition or Terri Paddock's post-show Q&A!)
Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday, Maria Callas... Bernadette Robinson brings them all to life in a tour de force performance in SONGS FOR NOBODIES, written especially for her by multi-award-winning dramatist Joanna Murray-Smith. As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Friday 11 January 2019, Faves founder Terri Paddock will quiz her at the West End's Ambassadors Theatre...
We're counting down to the West End premiere of SONGS FOR NOBODIES, Joanna Murray-Smith's musical one-woman play in which Australian singer and actor Bernadette Robinson gives a tour-de-force performance bringing to life five iconic divas: Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas. Have you watched the trailer?
Fans of Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins’ high-energy 80s-inspired British musical Eugenius! The Musical will be ‘No Pants Dancing’ with excitement following the news that the show is to transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre from 27 October 2018 to 5 January 2019 #GoEugenius!
It's been a wild ride! After two years of touring madness and multiple London runs, mod musical ALL OR NOTHING is now in its final fortnight of its West End run at the Ambassadors Theatre. It must now finish on 12 May 2018, rather than 2 June as previously scheduled. Can you help send off the Small Faces in fashion?
Why is the story of The Small Faces so important, and so personal, to Carol Harrison? The former EastEnders star turned theatre writer, director, producer and star tells us about her journey with ALL OR NOTHING and where the Mod musical goes from here...
The stars of ALL OR NOTHING dropped into the Theatre Cafe this week to talk all things mod with Nicky Sweetland. Hark back to the 1960s at the height of London's cool in this fun-filled interview at every musical theatre lover's favourite caffeine pit-stop in the West End.
Mods and would-be mods were fighting over ALL OR NOTHING's vintage 1960s scooter at last night's West End gala for the Small Faces musical as it transferred for an extended West End season at the Ambassadors Theatre. How many chart-topping legends can you spot? Be sure to check out our extensive photo gallery!
The mods are still in fashion. After previous London runs at The Vaults and extensive touring, ALL OR NOTHING – THE MOD MUSICAL will move direct from its current five-week season at the Arts Theatre to ten weeks at the West End's Ambassadors Theatre. Is that anywhere near Itchycoo Park?
It's been a loud and exciting 15 years but in January 2018 the record-breaking, worldwide phenomenon will put down its trash-can lids for one last time and take a final, raucous bow! But, is this the end for STOMP in the capital..?
Lasting a year on the West End is an achievement worth celebrating, but 15? That's something special! That's exactly what STOMP just did. The raucous, rhythmical geniuses celebrated STOMP's 15th anniversary on 15 September and the cast celebrated with a singalong and a big birthday cake...
This summer, the British Theatre Academy took over the West End with a double run of shows at the Ambassadors Theatre. One of the two shows showcasing a fantastically talented young cast was 13 THE MUSICAL, which ran until 23 August. We've got some fantastic production photos from the run which looked positively wonderful...
The West End wouldn't be the same without it - STOMP has been a show for over 25 years a London staple for a sizeable chunk of it. The producers have now announced that the box-office smash has been extended into next year. So get those bin lids out and let's make some noise!
