Here’s a guide to some of the most popular reads on LLLC this week…

Review of The Prince of Egypt the Musical’s Original Cast recording: this week we took a listen to the newly released recording of the West End musical, featuring the original cast. The soundtrack includes ‘Deliver Us’, ‘Never in a Million Years’ and of course ‘When You Believe’.

Review of Caprice Brilliant by Catherine Gordeladze: also this week we got a chance to listen to the pianist’s upcoming new album, set for release next month. This new album is elegant and exquisitely performed. Check out the full review here.

Review of Acis and Galatea at the Royal Opera House (2009): with the ongoing lockdown situation, this has been an opportunity for LLLC to catch up with productions that we have missed in previous years. The Royal Opera House is currently streaming a wide variety of productions from its back catalogue – including Wayne McGregor’s take on the tale of Acis and Galatea, which sees the Royal Opera and Royal Ballet combing their talents into one production.

Release date for digital download of Can You Keep a Secret? announced: it was announced this week that the new romantic comedy based on Sophie Kinsella’s book is set to be released on digital download next month.

Review of One Man Two Guvnors streamed as part of National Theatre Live: still proving popular on LLLC is our review of the hilarious production of Richard Bean’s comedy starring James Corden.

Review of Love Marriage Repeat: now available to stream on Netflix, this new romantic comedy is brilliantly hilarious as it shows just how badly things can go at a wedding. Starring Eleanor Tomlinson, Sam Clafin and Jack Farthing it is worth a watch if you are in need of a giggle.

Review of Rumpelstiltskin by BalletLorent at Sadler’s Wells: filled with heaps of imagination, charm and playfulness this unique take on the classic fairytale will certainly capture the imagination of anyone (no matter your age).
