With the announcement a couple months ago that Emma Rice was going to bring back Nell Gwynn to Shakespeare’s Globe this year and that Laura Pitt-Pulford was stepping into Gemma Arterton’s shoes, I thought it’d be a good idea to let you listen to the actors backstage as they got ready for their respective shows that we covered.

Flying with Peter!

In any production of Peter Pan worth its salt, there’s plenty of flying. Achieved with great success in this production by Sally Cooke, with many cast members both flying and counter-weighting, I wanted to know how comfortable the cast were after strapping into the harnesses. Suffice to say, it wasn’t all smooth “gliding” getting to grips with floating 30 feet above the Olivier stage floor. But once they got the hang of it, it was all fun!

On Tuesday we dropped Episode 30, when we took you backstage to Lazarus at the Kings Cross Theatre. And what you didn’t get to hear were the incredible team of understudies that I met, so I thought it was high time that Curtain Call bring you another Understudy Special bonus episode to get you through the weekend. So sit back and listen to John Boydon, Alexandra Da Silva, Trina Hill and Paul Westwood take you through their journey on David Bowie’s extraordinary “Lazarus.”

To say that last Tuesday’s visit to London transfer of The New York Theatre Workshop’s “Lazarus” was a privilege is an understatement for Matt Humphrey and I. For Curtain Call to be invited backstage on such an occasion shows just how far we have come in the last year or so. I had a fantastic time talking to the company of Lazarus at King’s Cross Theatre, including the associate producer Zelda Perkins and Musical Director Tom Cawley. Also the fantastic cast such as Amy Lennox, who you have heard on the Kinky Boots podcast, as well as Broadway star Michael Esper and Dexter & Six Feet Under Star Michael C Hall, making his London Theatre debut.

Mark Manley started a craze a few years ago when he went from doodling during phone calls to doodling actors he saw on stage.  So the logical next step was to plan an exhibition, which is exactly what he did last year.  Now, he is back by popular demand at The Theatre Cafe on Shaftesbury Avenue. I spent last Sunday talking to Mark as he hung his latest exhibition.

The role of the Associate Director is a crucial one for any show, be it a West End, Fringe or regional production.  They ensure that that show runs smoothly once the production is up and running and the director is on to their next project.  An often unsung hero or heroine, Curtain Call would like to celebrate their input into a show by sharing with you a chat we had with Alexander Lass, Associate Director on No Man's Land at the Wyndham's Theatre.
