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

    He also really helped kicked Taboo to death.

  • Will ON YOUR FEET be the next hit?  Jul 17 2015, 06:18:27 PM

    I can't help thinking that many on here seem to be underestimating the popularity of Gloria and her music. Im from the UK where we don't really have a big Latin community yet she was big here and very well loved. I think this could well and honestly I think in terms of an audience in their 30s 40s and even older this would appeal more than say Jersey Boys. It's gonna come down to marketing I think. 

  • WHAT IS ON THE TOWN DOING?  Jul 6 2015, 10:02:58 AM
    I just love how everybody here is an insider in to what the finances are for this show, we actually have no idea as to what it's running costs are now. Also the show is watched by a lot of people, in a smaller house on Broadway this would be selling out, the theatre is killing it.
  • Sheridan Smith has two OLIVIER AWARDS  Jun 23 2015, 02:20:53 PM

    Mister Matt we agree for once, why an earth does it make any difference if she is British or not? Guess what, the Les Mis cast ain't French either. Sheridan is incredible on stage, she was comedy genius and full of heart in Legally Blonde London and transformed the show. She will be superb in this.

     Don't know what you are looking at. This looks brilliant.

    Fantod you get used to Namo, he's like that annoying little brother who just keeps repeating everything you say and acting like a brat. For years I thought he was a teenager because of the way he comes here just to bitch or act like an ass, then I found out hes not even close to ten age years. A little sad, but just take it on the chin.

    Forgot about The Wedding Singer, a lot of fun, very underrated 

  • Best Flop You Ever Saw  Jun 3 2015, 10:30:33 PM

    Taboo (brilliant)

    Dance of the Vampires (so much silly fun)

    Good Vibrations (jaw droppingly bad)

    Carrie (saw it when I was 10 years old in Stratford)

    Gone With the Wind (London, head scratchingly bad)

    Bad Girls (London, loved it) 

    Rent Remixed (London, so so bad)

    American Idiot (brilliant)

    Love posts like this, the one from a couple of years ago about lost theatres on Broadway was incredible 

  • Love Never Dies heading to North America!  May 19 2015, 03:01:54 PM

    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 Stage - positive

  • Carrie lives on in the UK  May 7 2015, 09:12:28 AM

    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.

  • Charles Busch  May 4 2015, 06:54:28 PM

    This is an interview I did with him back in 2011 ahead of our productions of his plays.

  • Charles Busch  May 4 2015, 05:46:15 PM

    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 

  • Drama Desk nominations will be announced today  Apr 23 2015, 02:52:02 PM

    Why when people on here don't agree with the nominations do they call out the awards been a joke? 

  • Team Madonna vs. Team Lin-Manuel  Apr 22 2015, 01:26:51 PM

    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.
