This is a much longer episode than we’ve had this week because Ed is just so funny. We talked for ages and even this is much shorter than what I could have put out.  Above all, Ed is so funny, and we all need a laugh these days. I have known Ed for years, and he’s a dear, dear friend.

In this episode, I am so honoured to be talking to the first producer of a little show called Fleabag (which a few of you may have heard about) - the wonderful, modest and honest Francesca Moody. She’s driven, witty, brilliantly creative, and just a joy to speak with.

When I was researching for the show, it soon became apparent that Francesca has an eye for spotting new writing, and is not afraid of the challenges that comes with. She backed Fleabag early and took it to the Edinburgh Fringe, and cut her teeth working as a producer at Paines Plough.

The latest show she produced, Baby Reindeer, has just announced its West End transfer - in co-production with Sonia Friedman, followed by a New York transfer.

Theo Bosanquet sits down with the one and only Olivier Award winner Janie Dee to discuss her plans for appearing on a much bigger stage. She is to star in the London transfer of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang.

Whilst appearing there, Dee is to co-produce the inaugural London Climate Change Festival all happening at the Charing Cross Theatre.

During the day, the venue will play host to workshops for school groups, and there are the post-show talks and cabaret with guest appearances from your favourite theatre and TV folk like Giles Terrera and Rob Brydon among many, many others.

As an added bonus, at the end of the episode, Janie Dee recites one of her favourite speeches from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which she finds just as pertinent today as it was 400 years ago.

Paul Minx - whose plays include The Long Road South which played at the King’s Head Theatre with Imogen Stubbs and Michael Brandon and See How Beautiful I Am at the Bush Theatre - has a new play in town.

The Dog Walker makes its London premiere at the Jermyn Street Theatre this week with a fantastic cast of Victoria Yeates, seen on the small screen in Call the Midwife and on the big screen in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and beside her onstage is Andrew Dennis who we say at The National Theatre in One Man, Two Guvnors.

The story is that of Herbert Doakes, a professional dog walker who encounters Keri, a dog owner in an empty-ouzo-bottle-ridden flat, with no sign of a dog.  Paul Minx’s story of finding connection in the big city is as moving as it is funny, proving that hope springs in the most unlikely situations.

Welcome to the first ever episode of the No Pressure Podcast hosted by Curtain Call's Matt Humphrey.

Matt is kicking off the series with a duo whose work, ideas and initiative I have much admired since they made a splash on the scene a couple of years ago. The first ‘Platform Presents’ Gala - organised by actress Gala Gordon - featured a star-studded line-up of actors that any red carpet / award ceremony would have been proud to host.

Isabella Macpherson and Gala Gordon are driven, optimistic, passionate and selfless creatives - just the type of creators I love to talk to. They don’t like to restrict themselves to one media - if the project fits, they have the ambition to make it happen. They are kicking off 2020 with the 3rd Poetry Gala at the Savoy Theatre directed by Gemma Arterton, featuring an A-list line-up, and raising funds for their Playwright Prize which will support the work of an emerging writer

How many listeners have seen War Horse? Lion King? Avenue Q? The Grinning Man? Any Aardman project ever?

What do they all have in common? Puppetry.  

Puppetry has been a staple in theatre as long as there actually has been theatre, but the advent of massive theatre shows have taken puppetry to a new level, especially in the case of the first two of the aforementioned shows.

After coming across some of the art and video on social media that Jimmy Grimes was posting, I had to get in touch with him to see if he’d be up for chatting with me about his craft.

It's the final episode of the series and we continue to bring you closer to the real life characters from Come From Away and some of the people that play them on both sides of the Atlantic.  We sat down with all of the original cast members from the West End company (and a few original cast members from Broadway) and asked them all the same questions to give you, the listener, a deeper understanding of the journey that the company have had on their travels from audition to opening night.  We also spent time talking with the real people that inspired the musical and heard straight from the source the stories that ended up in Come From Away.

In this episode you'll meet the lovebirds Nick (played by Robert Hands and Diane played by Helen Hobson in the West End and Sharon Wheatley who plays her on Broadway. Mayors Claude Elliott and Derm Flynn played by Clive Carter in the West End and Joel Hatch on Broadway and our local reporter Janice Mosher played by Emma Salvo.

Cormac McCarthy is known more for his books and the films adapted from them, including The Road and No Country For Old Men. Even The Sunset Limited was made into a TV film for HBO starring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson.

And now, McCarthy is receiving his premiere on these shores with The Sunset Limited in the Boulevard Theatre’s dramatic debut with Jasper Britton and Gary Beadle, two phenomenal actors with credit lists as long as your arm, and who’ve appeared on stages up and down the country as well as on our screens, too. 

Gary and Jasper took time out of their rehearsal schedule to chat with me about the play, relying on each other in a two-hander and also the excitement of playing in London’s newest space.

We are dedicating the final three episodes of the series to bring you closer to the real life characters from Come From Away and some of the people that play them on both sides of the Atlantic.  We sat down with all of the original cast members from the West End company and asked them all the same questions to give you, the listener, a deeper understanding of the journey that the company have had on their travels from audition to opening night.  We also spent time talking with the real people that inspired the musical and heard straight from the source the stories that ended up in Come From Away.

In this episode we’re introducing you to Harry Morrison and Sheriff Oz Fudge, David Shannon and Kevin Tuerff (otherwise known as the Gay Lumberjack) and from both Jenna Boyd and Astrid Van Wieren who play Beulah Cooper in the West End Cast and on Broadway respectively.

Ros Blessed has been treading the boards around the country, following in her parent’s footsteps. And she has recently stepped into the shoes of the playwright, but has brought along her parents dad, Brian Blessed as executive producer and mom, Hildegard Neil as fellow cast member.

Shedding light on what we often keep hidden from the world, The Delights of Dogs and the Problems of People and Lullabies for the Lost will be performed in rep throughout January at the Old Red Lion Theatre.

The fantastic director Zoe Ford Burnett is taking the reins of the production, which promises to be nights of soul searching and much, much laughter.  You will cry, but you will also have a good old laugh.

As you have heard in previous episodes in the series, Come From Away had humble beginnings as a college theatre festival workshop production before ending up on Broadway, Toronto, a US Tour, the West End, Australia with a run in Shanghai .

But before opening at the Phoenix Theatre in London’s West End, we heard from the company about their pre-West End run in Dublin. And before that, the cast had a launch party at the Canadian Embassy in London’s Trafalgar Square. 

And in this episode, we are giving you a front row seat at that party with two exclusive recordings from the London cast.  

But first, we talked to the producers at Junkyard Dog and Smith and Brant Theatricals to find out why it was so important that the Come From Away team took their first European steps at the Canadian consulate.

The venue was confirmed, but the cast wouldn’t start rehearsals for more than a month, which meant that the Associate Music Director Wendy Bobbit Cavett had to fly over to London from New York and had less than two days to prepare three numbers from the show.

We’re taking a little festive break from that series to bring you our traditional Christmas episode where we read you a little story to help ring in the special season of hope, whichever religion (or not) may be.

For the past two years, it has been me reading these stories. And I thought to myself “Surely there must be someone out there who can do a better job than me reading this…”, so I turned to friend of the show, and one of my favourite people to work with, Siubhan Harrison.

We recorded Louisa May Alcott’s short story “A Christmas Dream and How it Came to Be True.”  A fantastic little twist on Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.

Show notes Ep 4

Welcome to the podcast series, “Welcome to the Rock!” A behind the curtain peek at what it takes to get a show from a seed of an idea all the way to a Broadway hit.

The international musical hit Come From Away tells the incredible real-life story of the passengers from all over the world that were grounded in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland in the wake of the events of 9/11.  Gratitude grew into friendship, hope blossomed in the face of tragedy and a musical was written to celebrate the community created in an incredible time of need by both the Canadians and the Come From Aways.

In this episode, the Come From Away musical family - the creative team and the cast - take you through their experience of opening a show in Dublin on their way to The West End.  Many of them didn’t know what to expect and weren’t sure exactly how the show would be received, but everyone, including the audiences, were certainly happy that they did open there.

 

The voices you will hear in this episode are:

 

Sue Frost - Producer, Junkyard Dog Productions

Randy Adams - Producer, Junkyard Dog Productions

David Hein and Irene Sankoff - Book, Music & Lyrics

John Brant - Producer

Christopher Ashley - Director

Rachel Tucker -  Beverley / Annette and others (West End Cast)
