Oscar Winning Film, Stage and TV Star F Murray Abraham Comes to The West End

F Murray Abraham - The Mentor F Murray Abraham is heading to the West End and I can’t wait to see him perform live again.

He was virtually unknown to the wider public when he was cast as the lead in a Hollywood film of Peter Shaffer’s hit stage play Amadeus, which some of you may have seen revived recently at the National Theatre. With that title you’d be forgiven for thinking the big part would be composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and indeed the story does centre around the genius’s struggle to win respect, wealth and recognition during his life time.

Review: ANNIE GET YOUR GUN at The Union Theatre

Annie Get Your Gun - Union Theatre If like me you're a fan of good, old fashioned musicals and you're theatre-going on a budget then you've a treat in store at the Union Theatre this month.

They're currently presenting Irving Berlin's classic show Annie Get Your Gun in a perfect pocket sized production with a great cast and peppy little band that does full justice to the gold plated score. It includes You Can't Get A Man With A Gun, Anything You Can Do, Doin' What Comes Naturally and of course There's no Business Like Show Business.

The show opens in 1983 during rehearsals for the 25th anniversary Motown TV special celebrating the rags to riches story of founder Berry Gordy.

Last chance to catch the Beautiful BEAUTIFUL

Beautiful - The Carole King Musical I always like to celebrate a show whose primary purpose is to give pleasure and Beautiful which is about to end its time at the Aldwych Theatre after a very respectable run of over two years, is just such a show.

You also learn a lot too. Although I’ve loved songs like So Far Away, Take Good Care of My Baby and Locomotion but I had no idea that the same songwriter was behind them all. That song writer was Carole King and the show takes the form of a gentle autobiography, dramatising scenes from King’s life interspersed with musical numbers she’s written.
