Curtain Call
by Broadway Podcast Network
9M ago
There’s a new show in town, but born a few years ago… pretty much like the main character in this astonishing musical. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is currently playing at the Southwark Playhouse: Elephant (not to be confused with the Southwark Playhouse Borough) . First appearing in London in 2019 at its sister theatre, Jethro Compton and Darren Clark’s musical is a fresh take on an old tale by F Scott Fitzgerald. From the get go, the music and acting, not to mention direction, design, stage management and sound mixing are just off-the-charts good. I just had to sit down and chat ..read more

166 - Cottage
Curtain Call
by Broadway Podcast Network
1y ago
Cottage is a gripping comic drama that has so many themes bubbling underneath the facade of two men meeting up in a public toilet. It goes beyond a queer story and commands the audience’s attention and asks questions of the viewer’s thoughts into human relationships and their deeply complicated makeup - no matter what sexual preference one might have. Cottage’s playwight, Ben Willows, sat down with me, in separate rooms becuase he’s already in Edinburgh performing in a show, to talk about where the idea came for the play and it’s journey so far.

Curtain Call
by Broadway Podcast Network

Earlier in the year, i was honoured to be asked to judge the 2022 Durham Drama Festival at Durham University in the UK. It was an incredible 3 days of workshops, talks, networking events…but most importantly new theatre written, directed and performed by the incredible talent pool of students at Durham Uni. One of the stand out plays was Em Oliver’s “Beautiful Nothing”. A one-woman show bringing into sharp focus how evil the internet can be towards women and the pitfalls that lie therein. It was a great piece of theatre and I wasn’t at all surprised to hear that it was going to ..read more

163 - Sunset Boulevard at the Royal Albert Hall / Stephen Sondheim Tribute
Curtain Call
by Broadway Podcast Network
2y ago
Alex Parker is a musical director, composer, conductor...you name it, if it has anything to do with music or musicals, Alex is all over it..and now he has his own orchestra, to boot! Alex is the musical director on a massive concert presentation of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s musical Sunset Boulevard in the iconic Royal Albert Hall. Sunset Boulevard is perhaps on of ALW’s most beloved scores, and in my opinion the most complete musical in his canon. And this concert version promises to be a BLAST with Mazz Murray as Norma Desmond, Ramin Karimloo playing Joe Gillis. And a musical wouldn ..read more
