This year West End LIVE also returned to Leicester Square at the West End LIVE Spiegeltent, which contained an array of costumes, scripts and sets from shows such as Wicked and Matilda. It is a real rarity to see items like these up-close, and they even offered up the chance to try on some of the costumes yourself.
There's been much debate in the press recently about whether Kickstarter crowd funding campaigns offer backers a raw deal. If the rewards offered: previews, back-stage passes, special commemorative t-shirts, and premier invitations are really adequate compensation for early investment in a speculative project...
I am very hopeful that the run of Curious Incident will resume as soon as possible, as the show offers a meaningful depiction of autism and the impact of the condition on families around the world, as explored through the mind of a young boy - Christopher Boone (Jack Loxton, who gives an arresting performance) - in an innovative production that should not be missed.
Being involved in musical theatre from a young age, the score of A Chorus Line has been circling around my head for the last decade at least.
