Michael Ball makes his West End debut as a producer after falling in love with the enchanting new British musical, Love Story.



Now following a critically acclaimed sell-out season at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Love Story transfers to the West End for a limited season from 27 November 2010 Ė 26 February 2011.



Inspired by Erich Segalís best-selling iconic novel and one of the most romantic films of all time, this life-affirming musical is scored by the Emmy and BAFTA award winning composer Howard Goodall with lyrics by Stephen Clark.



Oliver Barrett IV went to Harvard and Jenny Cavilleri to Radcliffe. He was rich, she was poor. He was sporty, she played music. But they fell in love. This is their story. A celebration of love and life, Love Story will win your heart. And it might just break it.

by Jay Irwin - Dec 8, 2014

Considering the notes in the program say they have been working on Theatre22's World Premiere musical "The Hours of Life" for four years, I can only assume there have been a number of workshops of the piece. But in all that time did no one let the author, Paul Lewis, know that the framework for the show doesn't make sense? And that's just one of the many issues I had with this show that needs so much help I'm not sure it could be worth salvaging. (more...)

LETTERS TO LORETTA FROM THE RADIO SHACK, A TRUE WWII TEENAGE LOVE STORY Receives Rave ReviewsLETTERS TO LORETTA FROM THE RADIO SHACK, A TRUE WWII TEENAGE LOVE STORY Receives Rave Reviews
by BWW News Desk - Dec 16, 2014

The non-fiction book, 'Letters to Loretta from the Radio Shack, A True WWII Teenage Love Story,' released on November 17, has received numerous top reviews in the few short weeks it has been available. Written by Crystal Lake, Ill., author, Laura Lynn Ashworth, the book is the true dramatic tale of the relationship between two teens, one on a minesweeper and the other in Chicago, during the final climatic years of WWII, 1943-1945. Ashworth has pledged to donate ten percent of her proceeds to the USO and VFW in memory of the veterans, Hollywood entertainers and WWII musicians referenced in the book. The reviews came from both book industry professionals and book reviewers. R. Alan Lewis, President of Ground Zero Books, Ltd., located in Silver Spring, Md., commented, 'We have been in the book business for nearly 40 years, and I have never experienced a book with the warmth, sensitivity, insight and humanity in a wartime setting as have been presented through these letters. There has probably not been a sense of shipboard life since Mr. Roberts. Through the letters one can also capture to a greater degree than I have seen before, a sense of the impact of the war on the nearly adult on the homefront.' Dianna Skowera, author and book reviewer, said, 'Letters To Loretta From the Radio Shack is a delightful time capsule of star-crossed love during the war of all wars. Laura Lynn Ashworth has arranged a superbly poignant collection of letters that give insight into a world modern film and literature have yet to capture. It speaks its own refreshingly honest language that you won't find anywhere else - Laura Lynn Ashworth hasn't tainted the dialogue of the letters and allows you to grow with the characters from beginning to end.' Jack Magnus, book reviewer, reported, 'Laura Lynn Ashworth's historical non-fiction work, is a fascinating look at the 1940s through the eyes of two young people in vastly different places. It's also a unique and marvelous coming of age saga as the two experience life and share their hopes and dreams. It's highly recommended.' 'Letters to Loretta from the Radio Shack,' is available at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and e-bookstores. Orders can also be placed at: http://LauraLynnAshworth.com. Special discounts are being offered for military, veteran, library, school, book club, and bulk orders. (more...)

Some classic stories, tales, myths and legends do more than stand the test of time. They speak to generation after generation, entertaining and teaching new audiences across the ages. The legends of King Arthur and his knights of Camelot are those kinds of stories. They remain as well-known and beloved today as they have ever been. There are similar theatrical entertainments, plays and musicals, that stand the test of time, entertaining the masses in the same way for years and decades. Unfortunately, Camelot, the musical version of those Arthurian legends, is not that kind of musical. (more...)

In a little town known as New York City, on a tiny street known as Broadway, the Roundabout Theatre Company took the 1930's Cole Porter classic Anything Goes and revived it on the Great White Way. Starring Tony Winner (soon to be two time Tony Winner) Sutton Foster as Reno Sweeney, Broadway's sweetheart Laura Osnes in the role of Hope Harcourt, and the legendary Joel Grey as Moonface Martin. The show went on to win the 2011 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, awarded Foster her second Tony, and also took home the prize for Best Choreography before closing in July 2012. Two years later, the award-winning revival hit the road in the U.S. national tour, surprisingly (coming from someone who saw the revival on Broadway) rivaling its New York counterpart. (more...)
