Theatre: Imelda Staunton to star in Hello, Dolly!

Another amazing bit of news about Imelda Staunton and both Came around the same time. She is returning to the West End to play Dolly in Hello, Dolly! I am sure she will be as outstanding as ever and make me want to head down to London for a lovely trip. I have seen her in the last three productions she has starred in Gypsy (twice), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Follies. I have also been lucky enough to see Hello, Dolly on Broadway with Bette Midler so I hope they use that version of the show as it was visually stunning!

Jenna Russell has also been announced in the cast with the rest to be named later.

A 30 week run starting on 11th August 2020.

Stage Door – Kelsey Grammer

On Saturday I was lucky enough to see Kelsey Grammer in Man of La Mancha and head to the stage door to meet him afterwards. But it almost didn’t happen at all when the matinee was cancelled, luckily though I was in London for the Marathon on the Sunday so I could then attend the Saturday night when I had the chance (review to follow) so this happened and Kelsey was absolutely lovely!
