The history of musicals in London is a long and rich one, dating back to the early days of the city's theatre scene, to the new productions today. The first musicals in London were probably those that were performed in the London's inns and taverns, which were popular entertainment venues in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

The show is one of those hardy perennials that just goes on and on and refuses to die - and quite right too. Annie with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin and a book by Thomas Meehan, was first performed on Broadway in 1977 and went on to win seven Tony’s before transferring here … [Read more...]

With theatres across the country making the final preparations for pantomime season, it seems a little odd for venues to be showing a production that quite clearly takes its inspiration from panto, however the decision could not be a better one. Following the story of a primary school teacher’s rapidly snowballing white lie about a Hollywood … [Read more...]
