Don't cry for her, but Evita won't be returning to London this summer after all. We're sending all our love to the cast of #StageFaves affected.
So who were the musical theatre winners at one of the best loved events in the theatre awards calendar, the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards? Step forward the much loved West End production of Come From Away, Most Promising Newcomer Sam Tutty for his Dear Evan Hansen debut and Best Director Jamie Lloyd who was recognised for three of his shows, including Evita at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
It was a glamorous night at the London Coliseum as the 2019 Evening Standard Theatre Awards were revealed with Jamie Lloyd’s reinvention of Evita at the Open Air Theatre Regent’s Park being named Best Musical and Anne-Marie Duff coming out on top in the Best Musical Performance category for her portrayal of the title role in Sweet Charity at the Donmar Warehouse.
Following its success at the Open Air Theatre, Jamie Lloyd’s fresh interpretation of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita will transfer to London’s Barbican Theatre for just eight weeks in the summer of 2020.
Yes, it’s that time of year again and we can’t wait for the free theatre festival West End Live to return to Trafalgar Square on the weekend of 22 and 23 June 2019. Want to know which shows are performing at this year’s event, from old favourites to first-timers? Then read on…
It’s a double whammy from Regent’s Park Theatre as the venue reveals casting for its Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber double bill – Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar – playing at the Open Air Theatre and the Barbican Centre. There’s plenty of #StageFaves lining up for the principal roles so waste no time in reading on…
Open Air Theatre Regent’s Park’s awesome staging of Jesus Christ Superstar was a sell-out in 2016 and 2017. Now the iconic musical (Pope Francis is a fan) is on its way back, transferring to the Barbican Theatre for 60 performances from 4 July to 24 August 2019. So what do you think of the new trailer?
Even after two hugely successful seasons in 2016 and 2017, it was still hard to say our farewells to Regent’s Park’s memorable staging of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Chris Superstar. Now we are looking forward to welcoming it back next year when it transfers to the Barbican Theatre for 60 performances from 4 July to 24 August.
