With plenty of online content and interviews happening, there has still been plenty to read about on LLLC. Here’s a guide to some of our most popular reads this month…
Review of the 1998 production of Oklahoma!: we were able to watch the 1998 National Theatre production of this classic musical thanks to Broadway HD and it really was a treat of a show!
Review of Peter and the Wolf, Royal Ballet School: the Royal Opera House have also been sharing some productions from their archives – including this charming thirty minute family friendly ballet performed by members of the Royal Ballet School.
Review of Acis and Galatea at the Royal Opera House: another popular read on LLLC this month is our thoughts on the 2009 production that saw Wayne McGregor combining the talents of the Royal Opera with the Royal Ballet to bring this story to life.
Interview with Anthony Alderson: we caught up with the director of the Pleasance Trust to discuss the impact of Covid-19 would have on the theatre industry long after lockdown is lifted.
Review of The Phantom of the Opera 25th Anniversary show at the Royal Albert Hall: released as part of the ongoing The Shows Must Go On series on Youtube, this was a truly spectacular performance to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic show – featuring some stunning performances.
Review of Siobhan Dillon’s album One Voice: we listened to the new release from the West End star, with proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Haven charity. Featuring tracks such as ‘It must Have Been Love’ and ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ it is a truly touching and heartwarming listen.
Interview with Rob Myles: this month also saw us chatting to Rob Myles about his online project The Show Must Go Online and making Shakespeare accessible for everybody.
Review of One Man, Two Guvnors at the National Theatre: getting off its National Theatre at Home series with this cracking production of Richard Bean’s comedy starring James Corden, this was a watch that really lifted the spirits.
Review of the Prince of Egypt Cast Recording:we took a listen to the original West End cast recording of this new musical based on the film, featuring music by Stephen Schwartz it really is an impressive listen.
Review of the National Theatre Production of Twelfth Night: while not normally a favourite play here at LLLC, this production really embraced the comedy which other productions seem to be cautious about. Immensely enjoyable from start to finish it is a bold and confident production.
