The Friday musical round-up: 26th September

Not for the first time, I have failed to write my Friday round-up for a couple of weeks, due to a combination of lack of time and lack of news…

It’s still been a little quiet on the musical theatre news front, but there’s just about enough to sustain a post, so here I am… For those of you who are slightly more observant, you might notice me slip in a couple of things that didn’t strictly happen in the last week. Enjoy… Continue reading ‘The Friday musical round-up: 26th September’

Who will the new Andrew Lloyd Webber be?

You might have seen my post a couple of week’s ago about the rumours that Andrew Lloyd Webber will not be doing a BBC show next year… the subject came up again while I was out at dinner over the weekend, as we tried to work out who would take over from ALW on the panel (assuming that the BBC does a series without him, which I’m say is 99% certain).

Review: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Adelphi Theatre)

Despite booking tickets months ago, I only actually got round to seeing Joseph last night. I blame ‘the Lee Mead effect’ for having to wait this long – the only performances with availability for a large group were those when Lee was on holiday. As you can imagine, no-one was happy with that option – why see the show without its star!

It was therefore with a great deal of anticipation that I entered the Adelphi last night, and in hindsight, I’d say that the show only partly met my expectations. When I reviewed the Mountview Showcase last week, I limited my post to highlights and lowlights, and I’m going to do something similar with last night’s show. If you want to read a more traditional review, you can see a positive one in the Times or a negative one in the Guardian.

I’d Do Anything finalists – where are they one month later?

Soon after the series finished, I wrote a blog post about my predictions for what each of the girls is doing next. Exactly one month later, I thought it was worth taking a look to see what has happened in the meantime, and find out whether life really has changed for any of the finalists. So here’s the news…

The Friday musical round-up: 4th July

Apologies for the fact that I haven’t written my friday round-up for a couple of weeks. I’ve covered a number of the big announcements elsewhere on my blog (e.g. They’re Playing Our Song coming to the Menier Chocolate Factory), so you haven’t missed too much of major excitement.

So, in this week’s musical theatre news…

Group theatre trips for the rest of 2008

I help to run a theatre group at the company I work for, which arranges trips every 3-4 weeks to shows on in London. It helps that we get cheaper tickets because of the group discounts that producers generally offer.

We arrange our programme 6 months at a time, and since it’s the start of July, we’re just finalising the list of shows for the rest of the year. After a couple of discussions and some email back-and-forth, we have agreed our selection. We think it’s a pretty well balanced programme, so read of if you want some ideas for what to see.
