Peter Pan tells the classic tale of a young boy who refuses to grow up. On a quest to find stories with which to entertain his young cohorts in Neverland — an island refuge for “Lost Boys” — Peter returns to the real world. J.M. Barrie’s masterful story shines especially brightly with a rich score that includes such beloved songs as “Tender Shepherd,” “Never Never Land” and “Distant Melody.” A delightful musical featuring singing pirates, daring swordfights, and fantastical make-believe, Peter Pan is a story that is filled with magic, delight, and just a fairy dusting of heartbreak.
Friday and Saturday shows are at 8:00 pm, Thursday shows are at 7:00 pm, Sundays are at 2 pm. Tickets will be available August 1st.

London is Now Cheaper than New York City

 


London offers some of the world’s best theatre and musicals. And there is no better time to go!  It was announced recently that London is officially cheaper than New York to inhabit and visit for the first time since 2002. Ken Kelling, Director of Communications for Visit London said:   “There has never been a better time to visit London. It is now 25 per cent cheaper for an American to come to London than it would have been last year.”

Of gay interest, what’s considered to be the first great play by the great and notorious English gay playwright Joe Orton has recently returned to London’s theatreland. Entertaining Mr Sloane, showing at Trafalgar Studios now  to 13 April, was first performed in 1964 and later made into a film.

The eponymous Mr Sloane is a young, beautiful, psychopath and con man who is persuaded to become the lodger of Kath, a lonely middle-aged landlady with designs on him. Further trouble comes his way when Kath’s elderly father Kemp recognises him as a man wanted by the police for murder, and with the appearance of Ed, Kath’s powerful but conflicted brother, who is also attracted to him. The manipulative brother and sister eventually agree on a deal….

Joe Orton’s extraordinary artistic and private life (he was 34 when he was bludgeoned to death with a hammer by Kenneth Halliwell, his lover of sixteen years, in 1967) was the subject of Prick Up Your Ears, a biography by acclaimed American author John Lahr, later adapted into the film starring Gary Oldman. In a short but prolific career lasting from 1964 until his death, he shocked, outraged and amused audiences with his scandalous black comedies.

PLAGUE OVER ENGLAND is another show getting some great reviews!  On 21 October 1953, John Gielgud — the dream-voiced Shakespearean star of his generation, and knight of the realm — walked into a public lavatory off the Fulham Road. There, he exchanged a few nods and prods with a young man who winked at him — and triggered Britain’s highest profile prosecution for homosexuality since Oscar Wilde.


In Plague Over England, the entrapment of Gielgud by a “pretty policeman” is the centre of gravity for a play that swoops across the gay underworld of Fifties London — from the bushes of St James’s Park strewn with guardsmen to the Whitehall clubs where the crackdown on this “filth” is planned.

Harry Potter Gets Naked in New York on Broadway




Gosh, it’s been a week of hot news from New York City!


Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the ”Harry Potter” movies, will make his Broadway debut on Sept. 5, playing the disturbed stable boy in a revival of Peter Shaffer’s play, ”Equus,” it was announced today.


Radcliffe, 18, earned rave reviews for his performance in the London production of the Tony Award-winning play. He also received loads of media attention for appearing naked onstage — a departure from his wholesome image as the bespectacled boy wizard in the big-screen adaptations of J.K. Rowling’s best-selling fantasy novels.









”Equus” begins previews Sept. 5 for a limited 22-week run at the Broadhurst Theatre. The play opens Sept. 25-Feb. 8, 2009. Thea Sharrock directs.


Richard Griffiths, who portrays Harry’s mean Uncle Vernon in the ”Potter” movies, reprises his London role as the psychiatrist who treats the stable boy, who has blinded six horses.



Radcliffe told Reuters in an interview in September that the prospect of acting in New York was “terrifying”.


“I would be very nervous because I think (the audiences are) even more discerning than in London.”


England’s liberal perspective on nudity differs greatly than that of New York’s, so it will be interesting to see how Americans respond to their young hero being in his birthday suit!
