There is a loud buzz at the moment that is resounding throughout the theatre land of London, being spearheaded by a Queen Bee or should I say King bee..yes you guessed it a certain Kenneth Branagh. I am excited by the Kenneth Branagh season of five plays at London’s Garrick Theatre performed by The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company, but there are a host of other imminent jewels in the theatre crown that I want to share with you too! There are new Musical Theatre productions coming to London this spring and summer, two of which Beyond Bollywood (The London Palladium) and The Dreamers ( St James Theatre) I have written preview articles on this blog. Both are new Musicals and both containing original music opposed to being a ‘juke box’ show, so they have caught my attention to say the least. The Tristan Bates Theatre will be showing a double bill play Barren & The Revlon Girl by OctoberSixtySix Theatre Conpany from June, continuing the theatres momentum of showing hard hitting and topical dramas this spring.
The wonderful news that Gypsy is extending to November 2015 at the Savoy Theatre is very much being embraced by the unanimous praise it has received by press and public alike!
These are just the tip of the iceberg of the many theatrical highlights that will be wowing you in the next few months. Would love to hear what Productions are getting you excited for the near future?
