This week Les Misérables celebrates thirty years in London’s West End, with a special charity gala performances starring some of the original cast members from the 1985 production. I sat down with current Eponine Carrie Hope Fletcher to talk about the show. Watch the interview below.

For a limited run over the festive season at the Apollo Theatre, the original cast of The Play That Goes Wrong will bring their trademark comic mayhem to the J.M. Barrie classic and timeless favourite, Peter Pan. In Peter Pan Goes Wrong, the members of The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society once again battle against technical hitches, flying mishaps and cast disputes on their way to Neverland with hilarious and disastrous results.
Jersey Boys, the smash hit musical (true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and their rise to stardom), is extending its booking period at the Piccadilly Theatre until 23 October 2016, with tickets on sale now.
The show is packed with their hits, including Beggin’, Sherry, Walk Like A Man, December, 1963 (Oh What a Night), Big Girls Don’t Cry, My Eyes Adored You, Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got), Bye Bye Baby, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Working My Way Back to You, Fallen Angel, Rag Doll and Who Loves You.

In my new blog this week I ask ‘Is the standing ovation becoming devalued?’. Is there a difference between standing up because you have seen something amazing and standing up because you can’t see the stage (because people in front have stood up…). Tell me what you think at westendwilma.com.
This week I’m off to see comedian Pam Ann, Miss Saigon, Thriller and press night of A Little Night Music on Friday!
So I guess I’d better get on with this, these shows aren’t going to watch themselves!
