2014, 09:42:03 AM
Just in case anyone on the Broadway Board may be interested - WORDS SHARED WITH FRIENDS (an album of songs with my lyrics) has been nominated in the Best New Compilation Album category in the 2014 BWW Album Awards. As it is a UK album, I thought I'd just make musical theatre fans across the pond aware of it.
The vocals on the album are by a wonderful selection of West End and Off-West End performers, including Jos Slovick (Georg in Spring Awakening, Andrej in Once), Will Barratt (Bob
The show will be getting its London premiere this Christmas - at the intimate Off-West End Tabard Theatre. So it will be a pretty different staging to the production at MSG! (There was a fantastic recent production of Rent at the Tabard so I'm guessing their Christmas Carol will be pretty impressive too.)

Some videos from the Olivier Award winning production of INTO THE WOODS at Regent's Park have been put up on youtube for a limited period.

A LONELY VOICE - new video of song from London workshop of epic new musical MY LAND'S SHORE Feb 10

Here's another video of a song from MY LAND'S SHORE that I thought members of the Broadway board may enjoy - AIR FOR A WISE CELTIC FOOL, performed at the Actors' Church, Covent Garden, London last October by West End star Killian Donnelly (currently playing Tony in BILLY ELLIOT, previously Raoul in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA & Enjolras in LES MISERABLES - and also, of course, was Combefierre in the movie of LES MISERABLES).
"My Land's Shore" is a tale of conflict, social injustice, moral dilemmas, love, guilt and heartbreak. Set during the infamous Merthyr Rising in Wales in 1831, the musical re-tells the story of Richard Lewis (aka Dic Penderyn), an ordinary man of conviction and integ

Three personal reactions: 1. I would LOVE to see a movie version of TL5Y 2. The article read as if it was written by a ten year old. 3. I have absolutely no idea who Anna Kendrick is! lol
The Mystery of Edwin Drood - Excitement Level? Oct 21
2012, 08:27:41 PM
I'm heading over to NYC from the Uk in a few weeks time and have just booked my ticket for Drood - and I am VERY excited!I've always loved the score and really enjoyed the recent London production. And this Broadway cast is to die for!
Top Hat plans Broadway? Oct 21
2012, 08:25:10 PM
The London production of Top Hat is an absolute joy! Genuinely witty book, fantastic dancing and - of course - a glorious Berlin score. Broadway deserves to see it!
(Btw - I was a little underwhelmed by the - IMO - overhyped West End production of Singing In the Rain.)
It will be the best 89 cents you will ever spend! lol

I thought people of the Broadway board may like to take a look at and listen to this new video of a song from the brand new epic musical MY LAND'S SHORE, which is set to take the UK by storm. It was filmed at a charity concert (Giggin4Good) at St Paul's Church, Covent Garden, London on Sunday October 7. The song - AIR FOR A WISE CELTIC FOOL - is sung by West End star, KILLIAN DONNELLY (recently Raoul in the Phantom Of The Opera and, before that, Enjolras in Les Miserables and about to be seen as
