Love the theatre and have worked as a singer and dancer for years inc shows like a chorus line,fame,,Tick Tick Boom,Evita etc I now own and run a successful production company in Manchester called Vertigo and have had several hits including Dog Sees God (UK premiere), 3sum (original play) the Breakfast Club, 'M', 'Rage and our award nominated original play 'OUT!' Recently we had the great honour of producing the UK Premiere Productios of Charles Busch Off Broadway camp masterpieces 'Die, Mommie, Die!' and 'Psycho Beach Party'. Both shows were huge hits and sold out. Our original comedy Christmas Sorority Massacre has had 2 productions and we were granted permission to adapt the BAFTA nominated film EXAM to the stage and the play opened to rave reviews. Our original thriller M won Best Fringe Production at the 3MT awards, Mysterious Skin was nominated at the Broadway World UK awards. The original drama Watching Goldfish Suffocate was a huge hit touring the UK and Porno Chic recently opened to rave reviews and and won Best Drama at the GMF awards. New show Noir opens 2017.
'They definitely don’t. Hope Mill’s entire reason for existing is creating theatre up North using Northern actors and keeping it in the North.'
Utter rubbish, this is Hope Mill and Aria Entertainment. Their Hope Mill productions of many of their shows have transferred to London, the recent UK tour of Hair came from Hope Mill Theatre. And none of what Hope Mill do with Aria has that northern Moto, most lead actors are from elsewhere. Rags, Jerry Springer, Hair, Name, Parade and many

I found many of the scene transitions in American Psycho to be superb. I loved the walls raising up during the middle of Killing Time turning it into a club worked superbly.

Bring on Tomorrow from Fame the Musical. It's actually the graduation song in the show.

Beetlejuice is making close to a million and yet people are predicting it will close soon? It had a nice bump after the Tony Awards and its held this week. It's doing fine.

Just wanted to say I disagree with nearly every negative thing in here (bar Shake it Off). The show was fantastic. The leads were superb, the production eye popping, much of the new songs worked (though I wish they kept Like a Virgin and The Show Must Go On) and the act 2 opening incredible. One of the most fun nights in the theatre, and also, the romance came through nicely.
Go judge for yourself, yes the book is just average, but it's stringer than the film book that got bogged down
Is Beetlejuice in trouble? Jun 11

Isn't this pulling around 800k a month? I don't think it's in jeopardy yet and I think the tourist season will see this one have a big uptick, especially after The Tony performance
Beetlejuice - A+ All the negative I hear about this show and yet I enjoyed most of the cast recording and this performance knocked it out of the park. They also felt like the ones who knew how to do a number for TV.
Tootsie - B- It was fine, the song is fine, the staging fine, it was fine.
Oklahoma - A- I loved this, im so over this musical but I loved this, A
At least Alex Timbers can redeem himself with Moulin Rouge."
Yea I saw the Boston try-out of Moulin Rouge and unless there are major changes I would not bank on any kind of redemption "
I think you will be in the minority on that one.
RENT Live on Fox Jan 27

I'm shocked for the hate towards the Joanne, I like her. Mark is great but not Mark as we know him, Rodger is good. Mimi acted Light my Candle beautifully, in fact quite a few are acting the roles pretty strong. Valentina is a terrible singer but sweet as hell in the role.
The staging is pretty strong I think, it still feels theatrical but also at times improved by the format (Will I)
I think people on here are way too harsh. To the average person this is a well put together pr

Long time posters who no longer post Nov 21

I used to post on here all the time, spar with Namo over Madonna and devour Margo's posts along with Smaxie's knowledge.
It used to be vibrant and full of fascinating info on here, threads that would go on for 60 or 70 pages and full of information. Now it's kids wanting show curtain pictures, stage door info or merch. Plus the nastiness got way too much on here.
I still check out threads on the board and news each day but not as much as I used to, and I rarely post anymore.
