Carrie Dunn

Carrie Dunn Carrie is the UK editor-in-chief for BroadwayWorld. After spending her formative years reading books and ending up with a Masters degree in English literature from King's College London, it was inevitable that Carrie should be a journalist. Her pure and simple delight in the art-form of musical theatre led to the Guardian asking her to be their West End Girl. Since then, she's picked up a PhD, and also written for many other UK publications, including the Times and the Independent. She has many eclectic loves, including sport, karaoke, reality television, MMORPGs, three-volume Victorian novels, the British seaside, embroidery and Veronica Mars.

Hallowe'en is out of the way now, so it's time to get a bit festive. What better way than crooning along to White Christmas, ready to settle in at the Dominion, starring Aled Jones (a voice inextricably linked with this season here in Britain) and Tom Chambers? It toured the UK last year to a mighty set of impressive reviews, and now it takes the place of Evita - now finishing its limited engagement - at the Tottenham Court Road venue.
