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.

BWW Review: A Rare and Topical Revival of ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS at CSC
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Oct 24, 2016

Anne, like Henry, is engaged in more than just affairs of the heart. She too ends up playing (and winning, on the best terms available to her) the game of thrones. Just before her arrest, she is offered a choice, which she recognizes lies between survival and legacy. Her choice of the latter is immediate, and has long-lasting positive effects, dwarfing those made by her ostensibly more powerful husband. (more...)

BWW Review: '27' is a Diverting Evening on the Left Bank with Gertrude and Alice B.
by Richard Sasanow - Oct 24, 2016

In many ways, '27'--the 90-minute the chamber opera about Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas and their circle, composed by Ricky Ian Gordon to a Royce Vavrek libretto--is an old-fashioned Love Story. It just happens to be about two women who entertained and collected (in all senses) some of the most important visual artists and writers of the first half of the century at a time when Paris was still the hub of the artistic world and 27 rue de Fleurus, the women's home, was its epicenter. (more...)

BWW Review: MTW Mounts a Pulsating MEMPHIS
by Don Grigware - Oct 24, 2016

Winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best Musical, Memphis is an eye-catching, heart-throbbing musical and fictionalized account of how the music business of the 50s actually changed, and as its lead DJ Huey Carmichael would say, it's 'fantastical'! Memphis is currently being revived by MTW in Long Beach for three weeks only through November 6, and the production is thrilling from top to bottom with a great book, great score, sensational direction and choreography and a truly fantastic cast of triple threat actors, singers and dancers. Memphis is one those rare shows that gives the audience a realistic picture of radio and the emergence of television as it took possession of the nation in the early 50s. (more...)

BWW Review: HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME a Brilliant Miracle
by Trevor Durham - Oct 23, 2016

Once in a very rare moment do you see community art shine, shine like a diamond in the rough, shine like nothing you could have hoped to find there. Rarely can one expect to find New York quality shows in a space outside of the great white way, perhaps Boston or Chicago. Not Broward, never Broward. Some blessings reach far, in the figure of Patrick Fitzwater and Slow Burn Theatre, opening their bright new season with a shock. Under a very exclusive contract, Fitzwater and his team are premiering The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a Disney produced show with only four productions ever produced. The score is one of the most challenging and daunting ever written, the characters dark as Victor Hugo's original novel, and technical nightmares never seen in south Florida. Somehow, through the magic of his performers (and a full choir), Fitzwater puts on a premiere that rivals New York, a show that most have never seen before, certainly one of the greatest productions the state has ever seen.

Guest Blog: Joannah Tincey On Adapting PRIDE AND PREJUDICE For Two Actors
by Guest Blogger: Joannah Tincey - Oct 14, 2016

I've loved Pride and Prejudice since I first read it. I think I was about 17, and I was caught up in the romance of it (no doubt fuelled by a great appreciation of Mr Firth's iconic Mr Darcy). In rereading the novel later in life, I was more struck by Austen's acerbic wit. It was much funnier than I remembered. I was also bowled over by the characters, and they were one of the main reasons I wanted to create a new adaptation, and specifically one with two actors.
