It’s September! And with a new month comes a hell of a lot of news. This week we’ve had two shows opening, musical mega-stars returning to the West End, and a lot of celebrations. To help you get up-to-speed with everything theatre, we’ve put the top news stories of the week in one handy place for you.
This week, Six The Musical opened at the Arts Theatre. The retelling of Henry VIII’s wives is rocking the West End. We went along to see this reimagining of her-story and now we’re going to tell you why you should, too.
Next week, Thriller Live will be celebrating its 4,000th performance in the West End. To celebrate, Peter Andre, Russell Kane, Jon Culshaw and Kieran Alleyne will be joining the cast for one night only.
This weekend, Strictly Come Dancing is back on our TV. We celebrated with an epic mash-up of the cult series and the hit West End musical, Strictly Ballroom.
The countdown has begun to TheatreCraft 2018, the UK’s largest free careers event for young people interested in offstage theatre jobs! We spoke to producer, Debbie Hicks.
Last night, the outrageously popular comic book musical Eugenius!officially opened at The Other Palace for a second time. We look back at the origin story of this 80s-fuelled show and why you should see it this time around.
The temperature is plummeting and we all want to stay indoors. Luckily, there are loads of new shows opening this month. We’ve created a run-down of the must-see productions.
It is in diamond thefts, as it is in life: if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. And the ham-fisted heist merchants at The Comedy About A Bank Robbery last week (3 September) celebrated 1,000 hilarious – if not altogether smooth – attempts on the West End stage.
