Curtain Call has recently published a couple of pieces about the top Broadway Musical transfers and the top musical revivals for 2019. It is by no means an extensive list, but just something to put in your pipes to smoke.

And we thought we would talk to someone who KNOWS about musicals...to go straight to the source…the amazing Jenna Russell. Urinetown, Merrily We Roll Along, Doctor Faustus, Grey Gardens, Di and Viv and Rose, Fun Home… These are just some of the more recent shows. She’s been in far, far more. Les Mis, Follies, Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George, As You Like It, Anthony and Cleopatray…. The gal never stops…

We sat down with Jenna to speak about the musicals coming to town in 2019, and also a bit about her concert on the 3rd of February at the Leicester Square Theatre.

Anyone who caught Dominic Cooke’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies at the National Theatre during the 2017/2018 season were witness to a sensational performance by today’s guest. And for those of you who didn’t get to see it...you’re in luck, because Tracie Bennett is reprising her role of Carlotta Campion this Spring in what promises to be a very popular return run.

The opportunity to hear Tracie sing “I’m Still Here”, absolutely nailing Sondheim’s masterpiece of a song, should have punters racing to get tickets.

We had the chance to speak to Tracie during the last run about what it means to sing Sondheim’s classic tunes, holding the stage at the Olivier and what it means to return to The National to perform.

Last year, Curtain Call were privileged to be invited to the launch party of the West End Transfer of the Tony Award-winning musical Come From Away.

In this week's episode, we bring you our coverage of the entire event, including some audio from three of the songs featured in the musical. After just two days of rehearsal, the company stood in front of industry media and industry professionals to deliver a knock out performance.

Come From Away begins its previews later this month before opening on the 18th of February at the Phoenix Theatre in London's West End.

Curtain Call 

 

Jan 5, 2019

This is the full episode and not just the intro! Sorry

One of the West End’s biggest shows will be bringing the curtain down one last time in a couple of weeks as this episode drops. And London’s Strand will be just a little bit more dull without the sparkling red footwear that currently hangs over one of London’s busiest streets. Of course I am talking about Kinky Boots.

Crowds have loved this show...and so have we at Curtain Call. And we couldn’t let the show close without one last visit to have a chat to the Charlie and Lola closing the show.

And before we kick off, I just want to say that this is going to be a two-parter, with part two coming out this Friday, so listen out for that...but to start it all off, Simon-Anthony Rhoden and Oliver Tompsett sat down with me just before Christmas to talk about all things Kinky from their first experience of Kinky Boots, to stepping into the big boots of those who went before them to just what it means to be playing in such a loved (and socially important) show.

In part one of this double-header, Simon-Anthony Rhoden and Oliver Tompsett talked about their first experience of Kinky Boots and what it means to be playing in such a loved (and socially important) show.

In this episode, we dig a little deeper and get a little more personal as the boys relate how close to their hearts this show has grown, how important they believe the show’s message is and what they will individually take away from their time in Kinky Boots.
