A Little Night Music cast announced – fantastic

Apologies for my absence over the last few weeks – I have just changed job, so things have been a little more hectic than usual at work…

There hasn’t been a massive amount of news in the last couple of weeks (apart from a flurry in recent days that I’ll cover in my weekly round-up). However, there was some major casting news at the back end of the week though which deserves its own post – and it comes courtesy of the Menier Chocolate Factory

My month and a half of musicals

It’s the end of July and if the Ambassador Theatre Group are anything to go by, producers are worrying about how they’re going to fill their theatres over the summer months. ATG have launched Summer Saver, a website where you can book the best tickets in the house for £25 for a host of big shows… But whilst August appears to be a quiet time for theatres, it seems to be a busy patch for me.

This week we’ve had 2 major new musicals opening in London and another new show finally announced for January 2009. We’ve also had some real and confirmed casting news, as well as some more reality TV rumours.

My top 5 musical theatre actresses

If you’d read this blog before, you might have noticed links to another blog – Musical Top Fives – where I intended to write about musical theatre only, in the form of lists of top fives… I’ve decided that there’s just no real point in keeping the 2 things separate any more (which might also mean that more people read them!)… I’m going to start by re-visiting something I wrote a few weeks back – my 5 favourite musical theatre actresses.

There are some hugely talented musical theatre actresses on both sides of the pond. I was trying to decide who my Top 5 are – so here they are… I have only considered people who I have seen live on stage… read on to find out more
