Composers are being asked to write ‘A Song for our Time’, an original song to be recorded by West End stars and a huge virtual choir with all proceeds going to Acting For Others. The final song will be chosen by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown.
It may not have been the Broadway smash Rosie O'Donnell hoped for back in 2003, but us Brits know a good thing when we see it and TABOO lives on in the hearts of anyone who saw the show or heard the beautiful score! Our Song of the Week is "Stranger in this World" from a musical we think deserves a revival REALLY soon!!
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...
WICKED stars Oliver Savile and Jodie Steele join a host of West End favourites who appear on a new EP of musical theatre ballads by songwriter Oliver Boito called "Notes Of Love".
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.
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...
