Who's got one of the largest companies in London theatre this summer? That'll be Aria Entertainment's From Page to Stage festival of new musicals with 56 #StageFaves - and they haven't even announced casting yet for the three-week event's headline premiere of Burt Bacharach & Steven Sater's SOME LOVERS!
Theatre Royal Stratford East has long been a champion of musical theatre and the team there are now embarking on their Musical Theatre Workshop 2017 which has just begun its two-week development period with six new musicals.

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.
