A few months ago, we went over to the ENO London Coliseum to take in the theatre spectacle that is Bat Out of Hell: The Musical.

 

It started in Manchester before moving down to London, and last weekend the entire London company started their run in Toronto at the Mirvish Theatre.

 

Bat Out of Hell is like nothing I have ever seen...or heard. The sound system in that theatre was incredible.

 

And there were so many people in that production, that, for the first time, I had to have help to make sure that we talked to as many of the company as possible. Theo Bosanquet, who you have heard on this podcast before, and I spoke to scores of people that night, and we hope to have the majority of that content up on our site soon.

 

This week, I thought I would bring you the full chat I had with Sharon Sexton, who plays Sloane in the show. We talked about everything from being in such a physically demanding show, various states of dress and how a musical theatre actor can keep their voice in tact during a long run of a show that’s such a big sing.

We were fortunate enough to find time with multi award-winning lighting designer Paule Constable, an associate of the National Theatre where her many credits include Follies, Angels in America, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and War Horse. 

She talked to Theo Bosanquet and Matt Humphrey about her serendipitous entry into the profession, her design process and collaborations with directors including Marianne Elliott, and how she feels the industry can improve in regards to gender and diversity.

Curtain Call recently partnered with The Mono Box, a fantastic organization founded by Joan Iyiola, actress most recently seen on Stage at Shakespeare’s Globe in Eleanor Rhode’s production of Boudica, and Polly Bennett, a movement director and choreographer who has worked at theatres including the Royal Court, Birmingham Rep, Chichester Festival Theatre and more – currently preparing the cast of the NT’s production of People Places and Things before they head off to New York later this month.

Over they past three years, they have become a resource for theatre professionals – affording them networking opportunities, further skills attainment and practical tools for the industry.

Everyone we talked to was so enthusiastic about The Mono Box and their ability to give advice, allow networking opportunities and support professionals no matter where they are in their career. 

I spoke to Niall Bishop, a volunteer and an Ambassador for The Mono Box, about his experience of his time working for the amazing group of people.
