I now own and run a successful production company in Manchester called Vertigo and have had several hits including Dog Sees God (UK premiere), 3sum (original play) the Breakfast Club, 'M', 'Rage and our award nominated original play 'OUT!'
Recently we had the great honour of producing the UK Premiere Productios of Charles Busch Off Broadway camp masterpieces 'Die, Mommie, Die!' and 'Psycho Beach Party'. Both shows were huge hits and sold out. Our original comedy Christmas Sorority Massacre has had 2 productions and we were granted permission to adapt the BAFTA nominated film EXAM to the stage and the play opened to rave reviews. Our original thriller M won Best Fringe Production at the 3MT awards, Mysterious Skin was nominated at the Broadway World UK awards. The original drama Watching Goldfish Suffocate was a huge hit touring the UK and Porno Chic recently opened to rave reviews and will be in 2015

    Sorry but I found this to be awful when it was playing here in the UK, it was a sequel that nobody asked for and didn't need and it showed

    The new production of Carrie the Musical has opened in London and so far reviews are very good, far better than off Broadway. Looks like it could have a life here.

    He's a great guy, supremely nice. I've produced a couple of his plays as UK premieres here in Manchester as well as directed them and got to know Charles well during the process, we have stayed friends and I'm actually currently working on a new version of his play Psycho Beach Party that merges the film and play with his permission

    Wow Namo, how long you been sat on that one? She was clearly just joking around. 

  • Team Madonna vs. Team Lin-Manuel  Apr 21 2015, 05:55:46 PM

    Do you try to be thick as s**t Liza or were you just born that way? I said texting in the theatre is a HUGE no, no justifying it, it's my biggest annoyance when that happens during a play I've written/directed. I ain't defending what she did, I simply said the disgusting comments on here about her are ridiculous, she just text during a show, she didn't murder anyone. So whatever the hell you are going on about holds no relevance to what we are saying.


    now Liza look up and see that

  • Team Madonna vs. Team Lin-Manuel  Apr 21 2015, 12:35:33 PM

    Ok I'm a huge Madonna fan but as a playwright/director and producer I hate people texting during the show. 


    However I'm more appalled by some of the disgusting comments on here, a talentless hack (after her critically acclaimed recent album), using black men (give me a break), garbage, old jokes.


    She text during a show (bad behaviour yes) but she didn't kill someone's cat, calm the hell down.

    I don't get why they ain't just doing the Simon Moore version, it's really good and also a 2 hander and already enjoyed a UK tour and limited London run.
  • Ghost the Musical  Mar 3 2015, 06:36:44 PM
    I saw the show here in Manchester when it did its first ever public performance and i loved it, i thought it still had an emotional punch despite the technology used in the show. I loved the marrying of film style visuals with a love story. I disagree hugely that the leads were awful. I think they did a great job, Cassie was in fine voice and her acting was fine. It had a few problems but did not deserve to shut so quick on Broadway. Its having a pretty good regional life here in the UK with a r
  • Neil Patrick Harris' first and last year as Oscar host  Feb 23 2015, 11:46:45 AM
    I actually felt bad for NPH, the writing was awful (and I believe it wasn't a comedian writing the jokes). It's far too conservative the Oscars so it kinda felt like his hands were tied. I liked the opening but the jokes after that were mostly lame, though a couple were quite funny. It also didn't help him that the whole night took on an odd political rally feel.
  • Lady Gaga + Sound of Music  Feb 23 2015, 11:40:58 AM
    Not a fan of Lady Gaga at all and can't stand the Sound of Music but as much as I think her own music and image is a train wreck I thought she sounded great. Not suprising though, she has a very good voice.

    'In other words more British crap that the critics will go gaga for. Other than historians of British history, who even knows or cares about the Prime Ministers of the UK? Sounds like something to nap through. 2 1/2 hours????????? Constellations at 1 hour was too long for me.'

    Ok, this is an ongoing thing here in the UK, a conversation many have about people like you. Believe it or not UK audiences like to embrace things about other cultures and countries, we like to learn, we find inte
  • The Last Five Years (The Movie, The Thread)  Feb 15 2015, 08:08:47 AM
    Have to say i loved it, and i'm not a fan of the show.

    Anna and Jeremy were outstanding, i far preferred her work here to Into the Woods, and i still liked her in that, this to me was an awards worthy performance by her, she tells you everything with a look, stunning. Jordan also did brilliant, his vocals wow, and he is a such a natural actor. I can't for a second understand any criticism aimed at this guy in this film, he matched Kendrick all the way, 2 of the best moments in the f
