January Theatre Round-Up

COR there’s a lot of good stuff being announced at the moment isn’t there?!

Whilst I can sometimes be a leeeeetle bit snobby about Jukebox Musicals (though I swear to god, the day that Cher’s back catalogue is turned into a musical I will claw out the eyes of a thousand bitches to get my hands on a part in that) I am SUPER excited about this one simply because I’m such a massive fan of the soundtrack. SMOKEY, STEVIE AND  ...
