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.

Theatre folk might be very familiar with her name - primarily because of her Olivier-nominated turn in Jerry Springer the Opera - but Alison Jiear came to national prominence earlier this year when she entered the Simon Cowell-led star search Britain's Got Talent. She's now using her high profile to fund a Kickstarter to record and release her album, Inspirational.

It's a joyous little show in the Park this summer, with this revival of the rather old-hat Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - never quite in the calibre of the Golden Age of HollywoodMusicals, but a traditional favourite and staple of am-dram nonetheless.

'Mack and Mabel' could possibly be Jerry Herman's greatest score. It's certainly the score with the most resonance for a British audience (the programme notes for this Chichester production even highlight how fondly the music is thought of in the UK thanks to Torvill and Dean's adoption of it). And however good this production turned out to be, its forthcoming UK tour is bound to be a hit simply on the name of Michael Ball, its leading man.
