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 Victoria Ordin - May 30, 2016

The fourth time was the charm for Minda Larsen, winner of the 2015 MetroStar Competition: ¬ďI have an MFA in opera,¬Ē she joked during the debut of her show, My Southern Song, at the Metropolitan Room on May 21, ¬ďSo it took four tries in six years to win that competition.¬Ē The remark is typical of the self-deprecating humor of the versatile singer from Jacksonville, FL, who spent time in Georgia and went to school in South Carolina. Itching all her life to get out of the South, now she longs to get back. Her new show (a four-date run that is her award for winning the MetroStar) captures that longing with love, laughter, and an occasional tear. (more...)

I smiled to myself; thankful for all of the ballets I had seen before, and with a keen certainty that after tonight, this gentleman was certainly going to be returning. (more...)
