Celebrating a decade since inception, Movies to Musicals, under the sure-handed baton of Ross Gunning, take us on a celebratory, sentimental, energy-packed journey over the past ten years. This ‘highlights’ show delves deep into the archives to deliver a diverse programme. There are blasts from the past from Funny Girl, West Side Story, Bugsy Malone and Mary Poppins and quite literally an audible blast in the case of the Stomp section.

I Should Be So Lucky – King’s Theatre, Glasgow

1w ago
The songs of the trio dubbed The Hit Factory, Stock, Aitken and Waterman, a video projected Kylie Minogue and an unending appetite for nostalgia, means that new musical I Should Be So Lucky promises much to an audience ready for a night of fun – but does it deliver?     At first glance Debbie Isitt’s (she of the much-loved Nativity movie series) newest show has a Mamma Mia-like vibe. Bride-to-be Ella (Lucie-Mae Sumner) is left at the altar by fiancé Nathan (Billy Roberts) after a quite frankly baffling misunderstanding. Undaunted by the trauma she packs her bags and takes herself, h ..read more
