This week, I catch up with another friend i haven’t seen for quite some time, because when I heard that Laurence Mark Wythe had a new musical being performed with the National Youth Musical Theatre, I just had to get the inside scoop. Along with his writing partner Timothy Knapman, they take the story of The Big Bad Wolf and turn it on its head.

Laurence is an extremely prolific music writer and always seems to have something on the go, so I really appreciated him sitting down with me, talking about his early career, how and why he got into the composer game and just what it’s like writing and recording music in a new digital age.

On this episode, we bring you Siubhan Harrison. After graduating from Guildford School of Acting, she hasn’t really stopped, ticking off some big bucket list musical jobs along the way including Les Mis, Grease and Guys and Dolls - all in London’s West End.

Siubhan is the real deal. And she’s showing off her comedy chops as well as her dramatic acting prowess in the winner of Best New Comedy at this year’s Olivier Awards, Home, I’m Darling.

We sat down in Siubhan’s dressing room for a quick pre-show chat to talk about her journey in getting to work with Tamara Harvey again, her director on “From Here to Eternity”, as well as discussing how theatre is changing for parents, what we love about theatre and the proper pronunciation of Theatre Clwyd.

Ben Hewis is the guy that goes behind the scenes to bring you behind the scenes of some of the biggest shows hitting london.  If you have seen any promotional footage for shows such as Come From Away, Night of the Living Dead Live, Gloria Estefan's On Your Feet (which you will be seeing soon) as well as covering untold numbers of opening nights and awards ceremonies for WhatsOnStage, including working the red carpet and press room from this year’s Olivier Awards.

But more than that Ben has been up to something good.  After seeing a production of Emilia (currently running at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End) he’s been using the Twittersphere to raise awareness about the production and to encourage and take as many disadvantaged young women to see the show as possible.

We recently got to sit down with the company of "All About Eve", currently playing at the Noël Coward Theatre in London’s West End, to talk about bringing this classic Hollywood film to the London Stage, and then back to the screen on an NT Live broadcast.

The company, led by Gillian Anderson and Lily James as Margo Channing and Eve Harrington respectively, were totally aware that this production of the beloved film, arguably the film that launched Marilyn Monroe’s career, and where Bette Davis utters the immortal words “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night”, was going to be highly scrutinised. But they didn’t have to worry at all. Ivo van Hove’s interpretation has seen a sold out run at the Noël Coward and the company revelled in this stage adaptation.

Say the name Strallen and you can take your pick of a first name and you are pretty much guaranteed a quality turn. Scarlett, Zizi, Saskia and this week’s guest, the wonderful Summer Strallen have all graced stages across London, the UK and indeed the globe - all the while picking up nominations and awards all over the place. These are some seriously talented sisters.

And I had the absolute pleasure to meet, sit down and have a good old chin wag with Summer last week to chat about all kinds of things, because, let’s face it, she’s got a CV that most actors would die for, working for some of the greatest directors of our time.

Summer is currently playing in Intra Muros at Park Theatre until the 4th of May.
