In this weeks episode of Theatre Chat Live, Jess is joined by Strictly Come Dancing stars, Nadiya Bychkova and Graziano di Prima to talk about the upcoming dance extravaganza Here Come The Boys as well as Francesca Forristal and Jordan Paul Clarke, the brilliant duo behind the new British musical, Public Domain.
Joining us after a full day of rehearsals, Nadiya and Graziano are super pumped to share their excitement for returning back on stage and performing for audiences, explaining that they thrive off the energy of theatre fans.
Describing the show as ‘the best party in town’, Here Come The Boys is packed with powerful solo and group performances to a selection of all the best party songs. Nadiya and Graziano hope to have audiences on their feet and partying the night away!
Our second duo of the day, Francesca and Jordan, are the writers and cast of Public Domain, a new musical all about the internet. Francesca shares how she entered the world of theatre as a drag king which is also how she went on to meet Jordan. The talented pair have been working together for the last couple of years and with a wealth of knowledge in the field, Francesca shares her advice for improv writers saying ‘don’t judge yourself’ while Jordan suggests ‘listening to all the musicals in the world’.
Giving us the lowdown on all things Public Domain, they reveal how the show came about from the concept of turning a piece of news into a musical. Funny, dark and completely quirky, this musical uses only words found on the internet and delves into what happens when you’re expected to put your authentic self on the internet everyday. They also share some exclusive news of an EP release coming very very soon!
Whether you’re into dance and fancy a party to celebrate theatre returning #BackOnStage or you want to see something completely new and one-of-a-kind, these two shows are well worth booking. Watch the full episode below for all the details!
