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.

I'm fairly sure that after flying across the Atlantic, one might conceivably be excused for being tired. But the trio of creatives behind Dogfight - Benj Pasek, Justin Paul and Peter Duchan - are happily sitting in the cafe at the Southwark Playhouse, cheerily chatting away before their show's official European premiere.

'Gymnastics does not come very naturally to me. I keep worrying I'm going to knock out some teeth, or break my collarbone, or something,' says Johnny Partridge. Theatre fans might know him most recently as Zach in A Chorus Line; soap watchers will recognise him as Christian from EastEnders; reality TV viewers will remember him as a judge on 'Over The Rainbow' as Andrew Lloyd Webber searched for a girl to lead the cast of The Wizard Of Oz.

It's been a frantic fortnight for Emma Hatton, the Elphaba standby for Wicked in London. With Willemijn Verkaik leaving the show earlier than expected and Kerry Ellis going back into green in August, that means a short notice two-week run for Hatton - and she's also preparing for a concert version of song cycle Edges in the Delfont Room on August 1st.

It's a swelteringly hot day in West London, and you can't help but feel a little sorry for the cast of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (beginning their UK tour this week). While production staff and scattered members of the press are wilting, gulping down as much water as possible and edging ever closer to the single fan in the rehearsal room, the company are ready to sing, dance and showcase their work.

There's nothing not to like about The Tiger Who Came To Tea. It's a neat, tried-and-tested adaptation of Judith Kerr's classic children's book. There are cheery, catchy songs, a dollop of audience participation, and it all wraps up in under an hour. Perfect, surely?
