Beverley Knight in Cats at the London Palladium

Beverley Knight is to take on the role of Grizabella when Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical Cats returns to the London Palladium this October. Beverley Knight said: “To be asked to join the company of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s historic show was so exciting and totally unexpected as, vocally, I am so different to the many incredible women who have sung the classic Memory over the years. To follow in their footsteps is something to truly relish! I am really looking forward to transforming into Grizabella with her fabulous costume and amazing make up and to be playing the role at the London Palladium. Working with Andrew will be a real privilege.” Currently starring as Felicia in Memphis at the Shaftesbury Theatre and was previously seen in the role of Rachel Marron in The Bodyguard at the Adelphi Theatre.

REVIEW: Jesus Christ Superstar UK Tour ✭✭✭✭

Jesus Christ Superstar on tour in the UK

Returning to a role he first played in Gale Edwards’ 1996 Lyceum Theatre revival of Jesus Christ Superstar, Glenn Carter is in tremendous form as Jesus. As Judas, Tim Rogers is a powerhouse of masculine rage and outrage, a fitting contrast to Carter’s Jesus. A very entertaining, sometimes confronting, revival of Jesus Christ Superstar.

REVIEW: The Phantom Of The Opera, Her Majesty’s Theatre ✭✭✭✭

Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom Of The Opera continues at Her Majesty's Theatre, London.

Although there are a few moments when the old girl creaks slightly, for the most part the staging feels contemporary and interest is snapped to attention right from the very start, when the slightly menacing words of the auctioneer herald the commencement of proceedings. The sequences in the Phantom’s lair, complete with boat, candles and ornate organ are almost hypnotic; tendrils of smoke wrap around the imagination, infusing the action and music with intrigue. Harriet Jones is beautiful, petite and alluring, exactly as Christine Daaé should be. Vocally, as the Phantom, Kieran Brown’s fine, high-baritone is silky, seductive, and powerful.
