THESE ARE THE STORIES I’VE ENJOYED THIS MONTH.
- Talk Like TED by Carmine Gallo
- Counting Sheep – no further plans I can find; let me know if you know otherwise!
- Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield – on UK tour this autumn
- Anatomy of the Piano (for Beginners) – returning to London this December
- Norma – performing at the Theatre des Champs-Elysees in Paris this October
- Closer by Circa – Circa’s other shows are touring Prague, Australia, Spain, the UK, and France through November
- Tago -no further plans I can find; let me know if you know otherwise! They did post a highlight vide of the show I saw:
- Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons – looks like this show is no longer touring, but the Roundabout venue is touring the UK, with several other productions. You can also purchase the script (it’s really good).
OTHER SHOWS I LOVED
- Chris Turner: Observational Tragedy – thoughtful comedy + improvised rap. watch his 100% freestyle on youtube. here’s one with a dog that you will not regret watching:
- Austentatious – the improvised Jane Austen novel. Scroll through their Instagram for best audience submitted titles. You can also catch them in London or on their UK tour this autumn
- Wind Resistance – music + storytelling solo show that inspired the atmosphere of my Lumos video. Karine Polwart is a folk singer and songwriter. She is touring the UK this autumn and is lovely. A little preview:
- Letters to Windsor House – theatre/cabaret/really good. Looks like they’re developing a show about Dolly Parton; no dates yet. This is what they’re like:
- Colin Cloud: Exposé – known as the ‘forensic mindreader’ and ‘real-life Sherlock Holmes’, Colin Cloud is touring North America with The Illusionists and I urge you to go because I can’t and I’m jealous. Here he is baffling Mark Gatiss.
- Circumcision – Dave Chawner balances comedy with powerful messages about sexuality, mental health, and eating disorders. Looks like he’s doing some stuff in London. Here’s a bit of him being silly/educational:
Looking forward to delving back into reading after a month of performance.
