Stage Door: Lesley Joseph

Lesley Joseph always has been and always will be one of my favourites! I am lucky enough to have seen her in Annie a couple of times over the years. I was very excited when it was announced that she was in the cast for Young Frankenstein and she gets an incredibly amazing musical number with ‘He Vas My Boyfriend’ which she totally nails. It is hilarious and rather filthy at the same time, I guess that makes it even more brilliant.

She’s fantastic to talk to at the stage door and more than happy to pose for photos too, total legend!

Stage Door: Susan Stroman

I was lucky enough to meet the incredible Susan Stroman who is the director of Young Frankenstein and has won five Tony Awards over the years! Such an incredibly lovely woman who was very happy with my love for Young Frankenstein, after my third visit!

She has collaborated with Mel Brooks on many occasions over the years and that is well just brilliant. Making a huge success of The Producers when it was first transferred into a musical. I am really hoping that this revamp of Young Frankenstein is a huge hit when it opens in the West End later this month!

Theatre: An Officer and a Gentleman the Musical

Some very exciting Theatre news was announced yesterday the Premiere of a brand new musical and adapted from classic film and one of my favourites An Officer and a Gentleman. Something to look forward to in 2018!

The musical is going to include the hit song from the film ‘Up Where We Belong’ along, with 80’s classics such as ‘Alone’, ‘Don’t Cry Out Loud’, ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’, ‘Toy Soldiers’ and ‘Material Girl’. Now, come on don’t you just really want to see this musical a lot now? I certainly do and I will be buying tickets tomorrow when they go on sale for the show coming to Newcastle.

Check out all of the dates and when the tickets go on sale below!

Stage Door – Young Frankenstein Cast

I know I haven’t stopped talking about the incredible Young Frankenstein Musical since seeing it for the first time last Saturday. I loved it so much that on the Sunday I bought another ticket and went to see it again last night, I waited at the stage door to see if I could catch the cast members as they came out. Last week (and rightly so) they had an after show party!

Poster: The Greatest Showman (2017)

As you already know I am such a huge lover of musicals and have already posted the trailer for The Greatest Showman when it was released a few months ago. I am a little bit slow by a couple of days to spot the first poster has been released for the film. That is due out over the Christmas/New Year period, starring the incredible Hugh Jackman, he has a background from Broadway and isn’t just Wolverine 😉

Musical Moments – Young Frankenstein

What better way to stop feeling blue this Monday (Bank Holiday or not) than to watch Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle in Young Frankenstein and ‘Puttin on the Ritz’ which is a truly fantastic moment in the film!

I am still very excited after seeing Mel Brooks on stage after the UK Premiere and preview of Young Frankenstein the Musical. Having watched the film a lot recently as well!

Go on admit it, this made you smile!

Theatre: Mel Brooks on Stage (Newcastle)

After watching the Premiere of the incredible Young Frankenstein the Musical we had an extra treat when the legend that is Mel Brooks came on stage and did a little speech. Which included how much he liked Newcastle and even better that you won today. Which was exactly where I had been before the show, seeing Newcastle record their first Premier League win on the season.

It was a truly special occasion and moment to be sat in the Theatre with him on stage and really topped off a fantastic night!
