Reviewers have been having 'so much bloody fun' at HOT GAY TIME MACHINE, the latest West End offering from Six co-writers Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, which is now running at Trafalgar Studios until 5 January 2019. To the pantheon of 'electrifying, hilarious double-acts' add Marlow and his co-star Zak Ghazi-Torbati. See what else critics have been saying...

Alfie Boe has claimed his fifth top 10 album as a solo artist in the UK chart, in at number 10, with the release of his vibrant album As Time Goes By via Decca Records. Will you be Sing Sing Sing-ing along with him?

You’d think taking the world by storm with SIX The Musical would have kept writers Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss busy enough as they were finishing up their degrees at Cambridge. But no, along with fellow student Zak Ghazi-Torbati, they were concocting an even more outrageous hit. Toby and Zak, aka The Hot Gays, recount the birth of Hot Gay Time Machine…

It's so hot! It's so gay! Just imagine how hot and gay (and memorable) the post-show Q&A will be! As part of her ongoing event series, on Thursday 29 November 2018, Faves founder Terri Paddock is at Trafalgar Studios for HOT GAY TIME MACHINE, co-written by Six creators Toby Marlow (who also stars) and Lucy Moss. Got any questions?

We haven't stopped talking about COME FROM AWAY since it was announced that the show will be coming to the UK in early 2019 so it just felt right to choose a song of the week from this fab show! "Me and the Sky" tells the fantastic (and true!) tale of Beverley Bass, who led the first all-female crew in the history of commercial jet aviation. Performed here by Jenn Colella, marvel at the awesomeness of one woman, sung in the awesome voice of another...

The Royal Wedding is approaching and we're feeling awfully British so we thought we'd choose a classic song from a frightfully English musical! Our StageFaves Song Of The Week this week is "The Ascot Gavotte" from MY FAIR LADY. We think this version from the 1964 film looks like the poshest game of Musical Statues we've ever seen...

It's been a few weeks since BANANAMAN flew into the Southwark Playhouse to fill you with laughter and potassium. Listen to "Every Great Cliche" where Mark Newnham's Eric Wimp and Jodie Jacobs' crow set their sights on saving the day. Check out the awesome clip, get inspired, and marvel at Jodie's epic puppetry skills!

It's a new year, so we thought why not start as we mean to go on, with some new #StageFaves segments!? After a little thought we had a lightbulb moment - why not feature a different song each week and tweet cool little bits of trivia about it as we go!? - and so your first #StageFaves song of the week is "Aquarius" from the musical HAIR.

14 Jul

If this first song release is anything to go by, we are in for a mighty treat with Rodgers and Hammerstein's ALLEGRO. The 1947 Broadway musical receives its long-awaited European premiere next month. Watch and listen here as #StageFave Katie Bernstein sings "The Gentleman Is a Dope" from the show...
