Jason Donovan in The Rocky Horror Show ">
Australia: Jason Donovan to star in The Rocky Horror Show 50th anniversary production
Jason Donovan is set to return to Australia next year to star in a new production of The Rocky Horror Show. The production, which kicks off at the Theatre Royal Sydney in February 2023, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the cult show. Donovan will once again be donning the corset, fishnets and platform heels to play Frank N Furter, alongside Australian radio announcer and TV personality Myf Warhurst as The Narrator. Joining them will be Ellis Dolan as Eddie / Dr Scott, Darcey Eagle as Columbia, Ethan Jones as Brad, Deirdre Khoo as Janet, Loredo Malcolm as Rocky and Henry Rollo as Riff Raff. Further cast will be announced soon. Written and created by Richard O’Brien, the legendary Tim Curry originated the role of Frank N Furter - first at the Royal Court Upstairs in 1973 and then in the cult 1975 movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Jason originally played the role in the 25th anniversary production of the show, way back in 1998. He recently told Australian journalist Edwina Bartholomew that: “You’ve really got to come out of yourself, quite extroverted in a way, and there’s a bit of naughtiness and cheekiness in this character. But what really drives me to this role is the music and the fantasy of the story - it appeals to that cheeky side in all of us, and, as an actor, that’s an interesting place to start, with a great character and some great songs.” Jason in having a busy year. In June he performed at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert in London; and also returned to the set of Neighbours with Kylie Minogue for the Aussie soap's finale. He is currently starring on stage in Grease at the West End's Dominion Theatre; and also touring in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Olivia Newton John ">
Grease star Olivia Newton John dies at 73
Australian actress and singer Dame Olivia Newton John, who starred in the movie version of Grease, has died. Dame Olivia Newton-John was best known for starring in the 1978 movie Grease alongside John Travolta. Her husband, John Easterling, said in a statement: "Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time. “Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.” A cause of death has not yet been confirmed. Newton-John stated in 2017 that the breast cancer that first struck her in 1992 has come back and spread to her spine. She said that she had been diagnosed with a second form of cancer in 2013, but had kept it a secret. She urged her native Australia to adopt the rules of the US state where she was residing at the time, California, to permit the medicinal use of marijuana, saying she was confident she would "win over it." John Travolta, her co-star in Grease, posted an emotional social media message that said: “My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better. Your impact was incredible. I love you so much. We will see you down the road and we will all be together again. Yours from the moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John!” She will be best remembered for her role in Grease, the joyous 1978 adaptation of the Broadway stage musical. After meeting the producer at a dinner party and being offered the starring role of Sandy, Newton-John, who was 29 at the time, needed some convincing to accept the job since she thought she was too old to play a high school senior. In order to accommodate her Australian accent, the character was also changed. Born in Cambridge, UK, in 1948, Olivia Newton John straddled the worlds of acting, pop music and activism. Her musical career culminated in her 1981 album Physical, with other hits including Xanadu from her 1980 film of the same name. Grease The Musical is currently playing in London's West End at the Dominion Theatre, starring Dan Partridge as Danny, Olivia Moore as Sandy, and Peter Andre at select performances as Vince Fontaine..

Grease The Musical reviews at the Dominion Theatre 2022 ★★★
Reviews are in for Nikolai Foster's West End revival of Grease The Musical, playing at the Dominion Theatre in London. Foster's revival harks back to the original grittier production and may divide some fans expecting a cookie-cutter version of the saccharine film starring Olivia Newton John and John Travolta.

The show is led by Dan Partridge (Link Larkin in Hairspray UK tour & Pepper in Mamma Mia! West End) and Olivia Moore (Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre & Heathers at Theatre Royal Haymarket) as the iconic duo, Danny and Sandy. Pop star Peter Andre plays Vince Fontaine - although only at certain performances - with Jason Donovan also set to appear later in the run as Teen Angel. The cast features Jocasta Almgill (& Juliet at Shaftesbury Theatre) as Rizzo, Paul French (Grease UK tour) as Kenickie, Mary Moore (Little Women at Park Theatre) as Jan, Jake Reynolds as Doody, Lizzy-Rose Esin-Kelly (A Chorus Line at Curve) as Marty, Damon Gould (Pretty Woman: The Musical at Savoy Theatre) as Sonny, Eloise Davies (Be More Chill at The Other Palace) as Frenchie, Jessica Croll (Hairspray UK tour) as Patty Simcox, Katie Lee (Matilda The Musical at Cambridge Theatre) as Cha Cha, Ronan Burns (West Side Story at Curve) as Johnny Casino and Corinna Powlesland (An Officer and A Gentleman at Regents Park Open Air Theatre) as Miss Lynch.

Billy Elliot - The Curve Leicester ">
Sally Ann Triplett confirmed for Billy Elliot at the Curve Leicester
West End star Sally Ann Triplett has been confirmed for the forthcoming Curve Leicester production of Billy Elliot. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical will get a brand-new production at the Curve this Summer, directed by The Curve’s artistic director Nikolai Foster and with Lucy Hind choreographing. Triplett will play ballet teacher Mrs. Wilkinson. Baz Bamigboye confirmed the news in Deadline. Nikolai Foster and his team plan to reinvent the show as a brand new production, distinct from the original West End and Broadway production. The original film's producers including Eric Fellner of Working Title, and the show's creators, writer Lee Hal, director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and composer Elton John, have given their blessing for the reworking of the show. Billy Elliot runs at the Curve from 7 July to 18 August 2022. Four young boys will share the role of Billy, and they are Leo Hollingsworth, Alfie Napolitano, Samuel Newby and Jayden Shentall-Lee. Billy's friend Michael will be played by Bobby Donald, Lucas Haywood, Ethan Shimwell and Prem Masani, with Pearl Ball, Caitlin Cole, Lola Johnstone and Ellie Copping sharing the part of Debbie. There is speculation the show may transfer to the West End. A number of other Curve shows have made the journey, including Grease The Musical - which is coming to the Dominion Theatre this Summer, running from 3 May. Sally Ann Triplett's West End credits include leading roles in Mamma Mia!, Chicago, Cats, Anything Goes, Guys and Dolls and Chess in London, and Finding Neverland and The Last Ship on Broadway.
