Josh Dever as Bruce Springsteen/Neil Young in High Fidelity

Straight off the UK tour of Rock of Ages, Josh Dever continues rocking out, this time, I’m really excited as Springsteen is a bit of a legend to both of us.

The brand-new Turbine Theatre’s first musical is High Fidelity. The original novel by Nick Hornby spawned a hit movie and this stage musical but this new version relocates the script back to London making it a perfect choice for the sparkly new Turbine.

More on High Fidelity at the Turbine.

Matthew Gent in Queen of the Mist

I trained at Mountview with Matthew Gent – which is a really, really long time to be in awe of this wonderful performer.

The last time I saw him on stage was in Sweeney Todd at the Adelphi. He’s been cruising for a while, but I’m thrilled to have him back on home turf in Queen of the Mist which has transferred into town from the Brockley Jack.

“It was Jessica Sherman as Heidi, Evan’s struggling single mom, who truly broke my heart with her Act 2 number “So Big/So Small”.
