Thu Mar 26thTheatre VisitsOur lady of Blundellsands. Everyman Theatre Liverpool
Details:Matinee 1.30pm. Tickets £40. Booking opens January 14, closes February 4.

Our Lady of Blundellsands is a hilariously twisted comic drama written for the Everyman by Jonathan Harvey, award-winning creator of Gimme Gimme Gimme and Beautiful Thing. Lovingly directed by Nick Bagnall, it’s about families and fantasies, honesty and lies – and about how heartbreaking great comedy can be. It’s no secret that Sylvie is unravelling. Frozen in time in her Blundellsands house, she inhabits a fantasy world that never was. Garnet, her sister, is older and wiser – and wearier, with her shopping lists and tired love. She’s always fanned the flames of Sylvie’s fantasies. Because if she didn’t… who knows where they’d both end up? But now the whole family’s up in Liverpool for a birthday, and Garnet’s got a secret of her own to pass on. There’ll be a party… but it’s not going to be pretty. Welcome to a family more messed up than your own.

Thu May 21stTheatre VisitsWEST SIDE STORY AT MANCHESTER ROYAL EXCHANGE 21ST MAY 2020
THE ROYAL EXCHANGE THEATRE IS THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE SMASH-HIT PRODUCTION WEST SIDE STORY WILL RETURN TO THE STAGE IN 2020 DUE TO UNPRECEDENTED POPULAR DEMAND. WEST SIDE STORY marries stunning choreography to a matchless songbook – Maria, America, Somewhere, Tonight – as it translates Romeo and Juliet to 1950s Manhattan. It’s the Jets and the Sharks, two rival gangs who make New York’s mean streets even meaner. But it’s also passionate, tender and deeply romantic – the greatest love story ever told. Reimagined for the round with new choreography by Aletta Collins (SWEET CHARITY) and orchestrations from Bernstein specialist Jason Carr, Sarah Frankcom’s production brings a whole new energy to a bona fide Broadway classic.
We are now planning a trip to see West Side Story at Manchester Royal Exchange on Thursday 21st May 2020. Tickets, including coach trip, are £48 each. FULLY BOOKED
