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.

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.

The Tudors are always fashionable. From Hilary Mantel's books (and RSC adaptation) to the Philippa Gregory TV series, apparently audiences can't get enough of Henry VIII and his tempestuous family. The monarch at the heart of Shakespeare in Love, of course, is Elizabeth.

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?

To be honest, if you're interested enough to read this review, I'm fairly sure you'll enjoy Scooby-Doo - The Mystery of the Pyramid (now touring the UK). It may not be groundbreaking theatre, but that's not what it's there for - it's a brisk romp through your typical Scooby-Doo story, with songs and audience participation thrown in.
