After interviewing Andy Moss earlier this week, I’ve taken the opportunity to chat to one of his Knights Of The Rose co-stars, Katie Birtill. Previously appearing in The Last Five Years, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert and Sweet Charity, Katie is making her way to the West End stage for just eight weeks for this brand new story.
Knights Of The Rose is the latest in a long line of brand new productions to make its West End debut at the Arts Theatre (The Toxic Avenger; Ruthless). Knights Of The Rose is a classic rock musical of Shakespearean proportions, featuring legendary ballads and timeless anthems from the likes of Bon Jovi, Muse, No Doubt and many more. Last week, I had the chance to speak to Andy Moss (Hollyoaks, Doctors) ahead of the opening of this brand new production.
Whilst I’ve never been asked this myself, I know a lot of people who have been asked why they have seen the same musical or play more than once. Now I try not to make repeat visits to show, simply so that I can broaden my theatre knowledge, but there have been a couple out there that I have made second (or third or fourth) trips to because I enjoyed them so much. And the reasoning for this varies from show to show.
Yesterday I shared all about how you can make the most of your time at West End LIVE, which is now only 9 days away – we’re in the single digits ladies and gents (and those who have yet to make up their minds; a little nod to Kinky Boots who will be performing on the Saturday). Today I’m sharing the full running order so you can work out exactly when you need to be in Trafalgar Square to catch your favourites.
West End LIVE is just 10 days away, which means it’s time to start thinking about your stagey weekend in London. Now, I’ve never actually been to West End LIVE because it’s around the time of a lot of family events (last year it fell on the weekend on my brother’s 21st) but this year I’ve managed to schedule my life to give myself the chance to experience it first hand.
If you’re a theatre fan, it’s very easy to get yourself caught up in a certain show, cast or individual actors. Believe me, I’ve been there (especially with the original London cast of The Book of Mormon). But sometimes you find yourself wanting to support them a little more, and there are loads of easy ways to do this.
