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 she is completely out of line for walking out on the show. They had weeks and weeks to get on the same page. She knows it's a clunker and she's jumping ship. She is so damn unprofessional and now trying to play the 'hard done by actor' card whilst throwing everyone under the bus. As a director and writer myself I would never hire this woman. 

  • BROADWAY THINGS: Wherein we confess our controversial opinions  Dec 27 2015, 12:44:21 AM

    Here goes

    i thought Bonnie and Clyde was the best musical of that season and both leads were outstanding. Can't help thinking if it was not a a Wildhorn show that the critics would have been far more positive.


    i really enjoyed the London musical Desperately Seeking Susan and thought the Blondie songs fitted the narrative far more than most jukebox musicals (thought the production was ugly)


    I think a fun jukebox musical exists in Good Vibrations

    '@kdogg36: I was being mildly facetious to exemplify the sheer absurdity of songanddanceman2's comment. After a lifetime of these types of remarks, your blood pressure would probably go up, too.'


    so basically if you are a person of colour you have it way worse than the gay community today? I'm pretty sure that people of colour are not having to fight for their rights to marry, adopt or even LIVE in many countries. 


    The bottom line is

  • On Your Feet Struggling?  Dec 23 2015, 09:28:15 PM

    I'm so confused by this thread, just check the box office gross each week, it's doing more than fine and is one of the highest grossing shows on Broadway. So they had a slow day a couple of days before Christmas, big deal.

  • Award Winning Playwright Almost Slaps a Theatre Patron (and what that apparently says about our theatre)  Dec 20 2015, 10:41:32 AM

    You have literally just labeled every person of colour as the same stereotypes ( worrying about the cops etc), that's INSANE.

    Ok as a GAY white man ( yes gays go through just as much as any person of color) I've read this whole thread and I'm appalled. I'm sat here with one of my friends who is black and he's been reading it and sorry to say Broadway Belter but he thinks you are insane. He thinks the woman who wrote the blog over reacted hugely and cried 'racism' without any proof of racism whatsoever, the gum remark is odd but why that has anything to do with race we have no idea.

    As for the remark about how do shows tour the UK? We ain't that bloody small shows will tour to Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edingbourgh, Brighton, Portsmouth, Torquay, Bradford and many others.

  • West End's Funny Girl opens tonight  Dec 3 2015, 08:41:55 AM

    Smiths reviews are outstanding. I was so suprised to see so many US members on here question her casting, I knew she would pull this off, she's electric on the stage. 



    f Sheridan Smith was a star before the lights went up on Funny Girl last night, she was twice the star by the time she took the thunderous curtain-call.

    At a stroke – well, over the course of two and half exhilarating hours – she has done what no actress has managed to d

    evic said: "Looked and sounded like a classic FLOP.that must have been painful to sit through.  Alyson always had a nice figure-until she got fat.  She was also a terrific dancer-before she got fat.  Willy's number was a groaner.  Mary was always fat"


    Wow real classy


  • Marilyn- An American Fable  Nov 13 2015, 03:23:42 PM

    Had this video for a good few years, quite a dull show that also manages to be bonkers.


    to the person saying about the Marilyn Musical in London, I have that also, cheap and very dull. 

  • China Doll Previews Thread  Nov 6 2015, 11:18:47 AM

    Roxy you are acting like a drama queen. I only pulled you because you seem to be contradicting yourself. You got angry when shows closed early , you get angry at critics etc, now it seems you are joining in, that's all. I only mentioned it because unlike others on here who jump on you all the time I quite enjoy your posts, I just think the taking glee in a shows failure like you have on here is a bit against what you normally say.

    Good to know, then I must have invested in a lot of shows.

    I really hope the above stupid comment is a joke? Firstly I'm in the UK so no, secondly I'm a writer and director so if any money is going anywhere it's going in to my own plays. 


    is this the dumb new comment now, that if you say 'wait and see how it does once it opens', you know to want to hope for the best and give something a chance you are automatically connected to the show?
