New theatre opening by TCR

Yeah I did, the performance is better than the play but it is quite the performance. Hard to believe she’s never done stage work before.

Saw Jerusalem tonight. Our friends got us ticket (and came with us!) as a wedding present which is brilliant gift giving.

It was absolutely fantastic! Made me feel all the emotions.

Gf said it was really good. Vue seem to be charging £20 odd quid to see it the only time its convenient for me which seems steep.

Interesting new Almeida season

Premiering in October, Tammy Faye is a new musical from legendary songwriter Elton John, Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears and award-winning writer James Graham (Ink, BBC’s Sherwood) and features Olivier Award-winner Katie Brayben (Beautiful) as Tammy Faye and Tony Award-nominee Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon, Girls) as Jim. This true story, directed by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Spring Awakening), is a testament of faith, resilience and the temptations of success.

Following her “spellbinding” (Financial Times) production of Summer and Smoke, Almeida Associate Director Rebecca Frecknall takes on another Tennessee Williams masterpiece this December with A Streetcar Named Desire. Lydia Wilson (The Duchess of Malfi) returns to the Almeida to play Blanche, with the BAFTA-winning Paul Mescal (Normal People) as Stanley, and Anjana Vasan (We Are Lady Parts) as Stella.

The world premiere of Women, Beware the Devil will take place next February. Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Ink) directs this deadly new play of treachery and trickery by award-winning playwright Lulu Raczka (Antigone, Nothing).

Next April sees the UK premiere of new musical The Secret Life of Bees. Written by playwright Lynn Nottage (Sweat), composer Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) and lyricist Susan Birkenhead (Jelly’s Last Jam), this production will be directed by Whitney White (What to Send Up When it Goes Down) and is based on the best-selling novel by Sue Monk Kidd.

A Little Life coming to London - quite the cast

I haven’t read the book but, asking for a friend obviously, is it likely the character Jude will be topless or naked?
