This week, to celebrate the holidays, I thought I would bring you one of my favourite Christmas stories. I have had the pleasure of reading an adaptation this story on BBC radio a few years back and, in my opinion, this sums up everything that we should all be, not only at this time of year but all year round. Selfless, giving, loving and grateful.

So sit back and please enjoy the timeless tale, “The Gift of the Magi” written in 1905 by American author, O. Henry

Currently running at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Sir Trevor Nunn’s production of Fiddler left its audience in both stitches and tears.  We absolutely loved it. It was so refreshing to see a grounded, measured, sober and thoughtful production of this fantastic show.

We had the pleasure of sitting down with Andy before a show to talk about his journey to Anatevka, the setting of Fiddler, the importance of the story (and not just to the Jewish population) and his personal emotional investment into this production.  We were also joined by Paul Bogaev, the Emmy and Grammy winning musical director of Fiddler, who just happened to be walking through the foyer. We think you’ll agree he had some fascinating insights into this production.

Just a warning...there is some swearing in this episode.

Way back when Curtain Call was in its infancy, we got to see Showstoppers when they were in the West End at the Apollo Theatre and I was floored by their improvisational skills and their absolute genius at making a musical out of a few suggestions from the audience. We were in stitches in the auditorium. Even the ushers were weeping with laughter… It was something to behold.

So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to bring you a little chat with the co-founders of Showstoppers Dylan Emery and Adam Meggido, as well as the musical director, Duncan Walsh Atkins...who’s job is to keep up with the lightning fast improv taking place on stage and to somehow come up with any number of musical styles from across the ages at the drop of a hat…

Showstoppers - The Improvised Musical runs from the 22nd of January to 16th March 2019
