Here’s a guide to some of our favourite reads for March – including interviews and reviews….
Interview with Ian Hallard: we chatted to the actor about his debut play about two single people who have ventured into the world of online dating, which was produced by the Jermyn Street Theatre for online audiences.
Review of Treason the Musical in Concert: following the release of several of the songs, the next step for Ricky Allan (music,lyrics and book) and Kieran Lynn’s (book) new musical was to present it in concert form for audiences to enjoy at home. Featuring an all star cast, it showcased just how far the show has been developed and its ambition and direction for the future.
News: Mad Hatter’s Daughter Unveil New Track ‘Diggin in the Dirt’: it was announced in March that the duo would be releasing their new single on the 12th March. In our piece making the announcement, you can also find out more about the duo.
Review of Children’s Children: we took a watch of this carefully curated selection of speeches, highlighting important issues relating to black history in a powerful way. It is worth watching as it certainly gives you a new perspective on how far society has to go in terms of acceptance and equality for black people.
Review of BKLYN the Musical: Lambert Jackson’s latest ambitious digital production not only brought together a high quality cast to bring it to life but also features stylish direction from Dean Johnson that gives its bohemian style which reflects the story well. It was certainly worth a watch.
Interview with Newtion Matthews: in the lead up to watching BKLYN the Musical, we chatted to one of the production’s cast members about the show – reading his responses it was certainly one of our most lively interviews!
Review of New Moon Monologues: Begin Again: March also saw us watching the latest edition in the The Queens of Cups monthly monologue series, showcasing the work of upcoming writers. It features such a diverse range of writing that there is certainly something for everyone to enjoy!
Review of Scaramouche Jones: Shane Richie stars in this new revival of Justin Butcher’s solo show and honestly what a performance it was – can not recommend it highly enough! It is available to watch until the 11th April – so if in need of something new to watch then this is one to add to the list.
Interview with Peta Swindall: we chatted to the Executive Director of the Little Angel Puppet Theatre about its plans for its 60th birthday – worth a read to find out more about what we can expect over the next few months.
Review of Graduates at Cadogan Hall: it has been a tough year for graduates who haven’t been able to show off their skills and talent as they should have which is why this concert series is so special as it acts like a springboard for them to do so. Let’s hope a lot of work comes their way on the back of this!
