SUNNY AFTERNOON - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

THE WOMAN IN BLACK - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

Horror on stage is scarcely akin to that which we see on the silver screen, and perhaps rarely is this more apparent than with The Woman in Black. Where the 2012 Hollywood adaptation, fronted by Daniel Radcliffe, posited itself as a straight-up haunted house fable, this stage production (which preceded it) is a much savvier affair.

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

For a show that pivots around the intoxicating allure of the golden age of Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard deserves immediate kudos for so enthrallingly recapturing that essence of the silver screen on the stage. Like the fabled cinematic epics of its era, this is an extravagant, opulent delight of a touring production, one that surpasses the majority of its contemporaries in both ambition and execution, not least of all owing to the full, 14-piece orchestra that bring one of Lloyd-Webber’s most majestic scores to life to stunning effect.

THE COMMITMENTS - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

The Commitments is a show that busies itself with ideas. Based on Roddy Doyle’s novel of the same name (the first in a trilogy, in fact) and the subsequent BAFTA-winning 1991 film adaptation, it’s something of a musical theatre curio. It isn’t based on any real life events, and mercifully carries no self-satisfied whiff of autobiography, and yet, in following a completely fictional formation of a working-class soul band in Dublin in the mid 1980’s, it strangely lacks in narrative.

EVITA - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

Throw the question of which Andrew Lloyd Webber musical is his best offering into a ring of theatre enthusiasts, and you’d best brace yourself for tempers, if not outright violence. Even pushing aside the naysaying hipsters and Lin-Manuel obsessives, a consensus would be an unlikely thing to reach. For some, the irrepressible character and vignetted charm of Cats would claw out the competition, and in fairness there’s always an argument to be made for ‘Memory’ being his most iconic standard, whilst Phantom and Jesus have fans by the droves. Sunset Boulevard has enjoyed a renaissance of late, thanks in no small part to Glenn Close’s triumphant return to the role of Norma Desmond, and you’ll always have a merry handful of Love Never Dies or Starlight Express defenders.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

Despite only arriving as relatively recently as the early 1980’s, La Cage Aux Folles was a show decidedly ahead of it’s time. Sure, the early genesis of some of Harvey Fierstein’s later outings can be felt in this, his first major foray into musicals - few will be surprised to learn the likes of say, Kinky Boots, sprung from the same pen. But whereas Boots strutted into a mainstream already percolated with the likes of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Fierstein’s own Edna matriarch in Hairspray, amongst others, La Cage shimmered into focus at a very time. The depiction of a gay couple having raised a child and there being a degree of normality and authenticity to their years together was a relatively new and daring through-line for a mainstream musical at the time, and it sadly was not without its critics and deriders.

DOREEN: RISE OF THE YAM-YAM - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

Everyone's favourite 'Lazy Cow', Doreen Tipton, has managed to pull herself out of bed for long enough to treat Wolverhampton to another of her one-woman shows. I headed over to the Grand to review Doreen's latest, and told her to 'Break A Leg'... just think of the disability benefits!

BUDDY: THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

It’s still remarkable to consider the fact that the legacy of Buddy Holly comes from such a relatively brief time in the spotlight. In just over 18 months of unprecedented chart success before his untimely passing, he etched out an indelible impression in the history of not just rock ’n roll, but the music industry as a whole. That his music is still being celebrated today, both on stage and off, is a testimony to that legacy that is beautifully encapsulated in Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story.

THE WEDDING SINGER - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

The Wedding Singer sets out its stall clearly from the off. As the audience take to their seats, a skewed, oversized video panel treats punters to a selection of decidedly 80s film trailers. The Goonies. Rambo. Back to the Future. Naturally. It’s a very welcome bit of flash and period curiosity, and if it may at first seem to suggest a slightly surreal hybridisation with 1950s drive-ins, a time warping video leap into the first number plants the audience firmly on 80s terra firma. 

JANE MCDONALD: HOLD THE COVERS BACK - Album Review

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

It’s certainly been a red letter year for Jane McDonald. The former 'Loose Women' and 'The Cruise' star kickstarted 2017 with the first of what would become two series of the hugely successful - and equally entertaining - 'Cruising With Jane McDonald' (seriously, check it out on catch up or demand, it’s superb and gloriously down-to-Earth). There’s been the return of her equally popular ‘Making Memories’ tour taking in venues up and down the UK, whilst also busying away with preparations for next year’s celebrations of 20 years in the industry, including, naturally, another Nationwide tour.

FILMING HAS BEGUN ON VANITY FAIR WITH OLIVIA COOKE

by Shepherd Management @ Shepherd Management

The first images have been revealed from the set of ITV’s VANITY FAIR starring Olivia Cooke. Olivia leads the cast as ‘Becky Sharp’ in the adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s VANITY FAIR. She is being joined by a star-studded cast, including Tom Bateman (Murder On The Orient Express) as ‘Captain Rawdon Crawley’ and Charlie Rowe (Salvation) as ‘George Osborne’. Filming started in Budapest, with the shoot then continuing in locations in and around London. Gwyneth Hughes’ adaptation of Thackeray’s literary classic is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and follows modern heroine Becky Sharp as she attempts to claw her way out of poverty and scale the heights of English Society. Her story of “villainy, crime, merriment, lovemaking, jilting, laughing, cheating, fighting and dancing”, takes her all the way to the court of King George IV, via the Battle of Waterloo, breaking hearts and losing fortunes as she goes.

Aladdin – Stoke-on-Trent Panto

by Rob Stanway @ At The Theatre

The most delightful pantomime is currently playing Stoke-on-Trent’s Regent Theatre, who have once again provided an outstanding seasonal production. This time it’s Aladdin – but once again it’s fresh, it’s different and frankly it’s one of the best pantomimes in the country. Welcoming back familiar faces – not least stoke favourite (and local) Jonathan Wilkes...

GREASE - Theatre Review (UK Tour)

by @ Stourbridge News | Blogs and reviews

There’s no real secret ingredient, and there shouldn’t really be too much difficulty, in getting the likes of 'Grease' right. It rides into town on a wave of nostalgia as the kind of accessible, pulpy musical many of us grew up on, peppered with memorable tunes that have long since been memorised by ill-advised karaoke jaunts, and fun characters that rarely manage to step out of the shadow of, say, the iconic John Travolta and Olivia Newton John.
