EDINBURGH 2016 - BWW Review: ROYAL VAUXHALL, Underbelly Med Quad, 11 AugustEDINBURGH 2016 - BWW Review: ROYAL VAUXHALL, Underbelly Med Quad, 11 August
by Adam Robinson - Aug 14, 2016

Deep in the pulsating heart of 80's London at a time of great excess and egos, three best friends make a pack to go out and forget all of life's heartaches. However, the friends are three of the most iconic names and well known faces in the UK. The idea of Freddie Mercury, Kenny Everett and Princess Diana going to a gay club in Vauxhall sounds too incredible to be true. According to Cleo Rocos book, it is very much the truth. This gives the premise to Royal Vauxhall. A mini musical sharing that infamous night and the emotions that led up to it. (more...)

BWW Interview: Giles Taylor of QUEEN...IT'S A KINDA MAGIC! at Athenaeum TheatreBWW Interview: Giles Taylor of QUEEN...IT'S A KINDA MAGIC! at Athenaeum Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Jun 4, 2016

He would have been 70 this year, and people mourn his death as acutely today as they did when it was announced, so much so that the name Freddie has become exclusively synonymous to his memory as one of the most unique, boundary-pushing and talented singer/songwriters of all time. Accompanied by similarly legendary musicians who still perform under the name to this day (they're soon to conclude their European tour fronted by Adam Lambert), Queen are proven time and time again to still be audience favourites in everything from karaoke to musical theatre extravaganzas and tribute juggernauts. The latest of these to reach Australian Queen fans features the incredible Giles Taylor, who I was fortunate enough to connect with and discuss his excitement about returning Down Under. (more...)
