On June 10 2018 the 72nd Tony Awards kicked off with a song from co-hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles. It started sweet, but hilariously took a turn for the silly as they dedicated the opening to Tony nominees past and present...who never actually won an award! Watch the full, hilarious opening here...
We love a good Musical revival, but we love it even MORE when companies do something fresh and new with the classic material. The Barn Theatre in Cirencester is currently running a brand new production of THE SECRET GARDEN, reimagined for a group of actor musicians. Our #StageFavesSongOfTheWeek this week is "Wick" from this exciting new take...
We wouldn't be true Musical Theatre fans if we didn't love a good parody. This week we can't get enough of this video by Christina Wolfgram which sums up LES MISERABLES better than anything we've ever seen before! So take three minutes out of your busy schedule and laugh along with these funny women as they poke fun out of our fave musical...
Try saying that ten times at speed! The cast of the THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK paid a visit to the world famous Cutty Sark recently in search of that ever-absent snark! What followed was a series of fast-paced frolicks, silly searching and lack of good reading skills! Watch the full video below...
We love our a capella groups here, and we love our musical theatre, so we LOVE a capella groups performing musical theatre! Add a slice of comedy to the mix and you've got a winning combination. We think it's awesome that the UK is getting on board with these a capella vocal groups, so we couldn't help but share one of our faves. The Bristol Suspensions are a student group who post a bunch of videos on Facebook, and here is their parody of the Cell Block Tango from the all-time classic show, CHICAGO...
Saturday 8 July is the biggest day of the year for gay Londoners - it's Pride 2017! The theatre has long been a safe and welcoming space for LGBT+ people, and Musical Theatre in particular has been a home both LGBT+ performers, audiences and stories. This year, in celebration of Pride, the cast of THE LION KING have teamed up with the London Gay Man's Chorus for this beautiful (and tear-jerking) rendition of "The Circle Of Life" and it's got us brimming with pride!
The OUR LADIES OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR gang have a riot onstage but it looks as if they're having as much fun offstage too. Join team "R Kelly" and team "Beyonce Knowles-it-all" as they face-off in this epic, Scottish-themed Pub Quiz. How many did you get right..?
It's true, millenials get a bad rap. Each generation has a set of musicals that define them, but before Frozen hit our screens, or HAMILTON rapped its way into our hearts, movie musicals were the biggest blockbusters of all! In this video, a group of teenagers are shown classic clips from your favourite films and asked if they know where they come from. Were they masters of musical theatre, or tone-deaf to the true glory of the form..?
A new craze has swept through Facebook this month and loads of #StageFaves are jumping on board! The Musicals Game is super simple and very enlightening. You just copy and paste the musical-themed questions, fill in your answers and then tag friends so you can compare your choices!
