THEATRE DIARY: April

It’s been a slow start to the month theatrically speaking, but I’ve had the luxury of a week’s holiday away from the hustle and bustle of London life – no theatre, but plenty of fresh air and good food!

Back to business this week however with one of my most-anticipated theatre trips of and hopefully this month will have a couple of additions to the diary before long.

Gypsy, Savoy Theatre (Sat 18th)

GypsyFinally! It’s a bit tricky to get to Chichester, so I was seething with jealousy at those who did manage it when the five-star reviews came pouring in for the revival at the Festival Theatre last year. Luckily, it’s back in the West End for another audience to enjoy. The great Imelda Staunton stars as the ultimate pushy mother, Rose, while Sherlock‘s Lara Pulver is her daughter Louise. Add in the timeless pull of Sondheim’s lyrics, choreography by the near-faultless Stephen Mear and Jules Styne’s fabulous score, and it’s a scintillating prospect.

Bugsy Malone, Lyric Hammersmith (Tues 21st)

bugsy malone

Since I’ve never seen the 1976 movie of Bugsy Malone, this is the perfect way to see the newly-developed Lyric Hammersmith and catch a new musical. With the Olivier award-winning Sean Holmes (artistic director of the Lyric) taking the directing reins, a new young cast are hoping to set the stage on fire as they bring Fat Sam’s speakeasy to life in the heart of west London.

The diary is looking a bit bare this month, so don’t be surprised if I add something else to my list soon!
