In Case You Missed It: Theatreland in April

Kitty Underwood

By Kitty Underwood First Published 4 May 2022, Last Updated 19 May 2022

We’ve rounded up some of the fun things that happened on stagey social media that you might have missed in the last month!

Hannah Lowther became the first person to play all three Heathers

Having only 4 hours notice, and not officially being a cover for the role, TikTok star and West End newbie Hannah Lowther went on as Heather Duke at The Other Palace a few weeks ago and became the first person to play Heather, Heather and Heather!

Payal Mistry made West End history as Pi

Speaking of understudies, Payal Mistry, who you can usually see as Pi’s sister Rani in Life Of Pi, made history at Wyndham’s Theatre in April and became the first woman to play the role of Pi, and we learnt that pretty much all of the understudies in life of Pi are gender-blind!

The TKTS booth was taken over by the cast of Death Drop

On one of those weird April days we had where it bounced between sunshine and snow, we had a few gals put in a shift at our famous TKTS booth in Leicester Square. The Death Drop Queens; Kitty Scott-Claus, Jujubee, Anna Phylactic and Apple Derrieres came down to lend a hand. Check out our article with pictures here.

Don’t know if you noticed, but we held the first full Oliviers ceremony in three years…

Okay, so we’re sure you didn’t miss this one but we couldn’t help it! The Oliviers was such a blast and such a wonderful way to celebrate our amazing theatre industry after a tough few years. Check out some of our favourite moments before, during and after below.
