This week, we celebrate World Theatre Day by bringing you some of our favourite chats starting way back in 2015 when we visited the company of Three Days in the Country all the way up to last week when we spent the evening with the company of A Long Day's Journey into Night.

 

On this episode Mark Gatiss, Olivia Williams, Matt Cardle, Denise Gough and Lesley Manville talk about their love of the theatre and why they'll keep coming back.

Meatloaf is coming back. Bat Out of Hell The Musical returns to the London stage after a brief hiatus across the pond in Toronto over the winter, where it went down like the proverbial “Beast From the East.”

When we saw this show last year, I was simply blown away by the music, performed by an exuberantly energetic company on a completely wild set designed by John Bausor.

This week, I wanted to give you guys the experience that we at Curtain Call had backstage during our visit. And no better an example to be in one of the boys’ dressing rooms of Giovanni Spano, Patrick Sullivan and Dom Hartley-Harris during a quick break while “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” is blaring out of the tannoy. And although they are “taking a break” in air quotes, they are busy keeping themselves warm. You can hear mid-show vocal chord steaming, working out and having a light snack…this is what it takes them to get through this huge sing of a show.

Tyrone Huntley and Georgie Henley are currently on stage at the Southwark Playhouse in Phil Ridley’s “Angry” – not so much a play as a theatre piece with Huntley and Henley performing what Ridley describes as “vespers” or stand-alone monologues.

This is a powerful piece with even more powerful performances. There were laughs, gasps, cheers and tears.  

Director Max Lindsay deftly makes his London directing debut getting not only one performance out of his actors…but two. You see, Huntley and Henley swap these non-gender specific roles on alternate nights, making a return visit a must.

I sat down with Huntley, Henley and director Max Lindsay to talk all things “Angry”.
