At Official London Theatre, we’re missing the loving sense of community and shared experience that theatre offers us and so we’ve set up a brand new weekly digital series called Theatre Chat Live which you can tune into every Tuesday from 6pm on our Official London Theatre’s Instagram channel

Whether you’re feeling lonely and want a fun chat about all things theatre or you’d like to meet like-minded people and share your theatregoing experiences, this is just the thing for you! All you have to do is tune into our Instagram Live on Tuesday’s at 6pm where Jess, our Social Media Coordinator will be waiting to welcome you!

Jess said: “Help, my boyfriend hates musical theatre! Being an avid theatre-goer, it’s no surprise that this past year has been challenging. One of the things I didn’t expect, though, is how much I’d miss not being able to fangirl about anything remotely theatre related – my partner couldn’t be less interested!

“I’m sure I’m not the only one going through this, so here at Official London Theatre we want to bring theatre-lovers together to talk about theatre memories, favourite shows, or even just the fact you finally managed to belt that top C without cracking. ”

Each week we’ll ask you, our audiences, a question. We’ve talked about everything from what films, TV shows and books we’d like to see turned into a musical/play to pancake puns and more fun stuff. We’ve also had many special guests appearing in our chats, with previous guests including Louise Dearman and Oliver Tompsett, both of whom have starred in Wicked as well as Aisha Jawando who plays the titular role in Tina – The Tina Turner Musical. Most recently, were joined by Magic FM presenters Alex Baker and Ruthie Henshall and Aimie Atkinson, Millie O’Connell, Natalie May Paris, Grace Mouat, Alexia McIntosh, Jarneia Richard-Noel and Maiya Quansah-Breed – the Olivier nominated stars of the original West End production of ‘Six the Musical’.

Join us on Tuesday 27 April where we will be joined by Rob Madge who will be telling us all about their stagey childhood and upcoming debut show, My Son’s A Queer But What Can You Do, at the Turbine Theatre.

Be sure to tune in at 6pm and to get you warmed up in the meantime, check out our previous episodes of Theatre Chat Live in the playlist below!
