Putting It Together

August 8, 2006 |

Admittedly a bit of a Sondheim addict, I thoroughly enjoy seeing his work done well. This company Kenspeck Theatre do a superb job. ‘Putting it Together’ is a selection of various musical numbers from different Sondheim shows, linked together. … Read More

Elegies For Angels, Punks And Raging Queens

August 8, 2006 |

Rob Roy

August 8, 2006 |

My immediate impression after seeing this new musical by David Warrack was the power and quality of the singing both individually and collectively. With a dozen or so performers in the cast and most of them having their own … Read More

Frankenstein!

Too Close To The Sun

August 8, 2006 |

Is it not about time there was a musical about one of the most charismatic leaders of the 20th century J F Kennedy? I know he is mentioned in ‘Assassins’ and I now believe there has been one other … Read More

Thanks to YA aka Youth Arts Leicester we were introduced to a shortened version of ‘The Hired Man’ during the Fringe some years ago.  Subsequently we managed to get a copy of highlights from the musical and therefore was … Read More
