Stage Door Records are pleased to announce a 2 CD Deluxe Edition issue of the ‘Maddie’ Original London Cast Recording will be released on October 14th, 2016. The album features 5 previously unreleased 1991 recordings by John Barrowman alongside a host of top West End performers. The CD release celebrates the 20th Anniversary of ‘Maddie’ and continues Stage Door’s commitment to preserve ‘lost’ British theatre scores of the past 50 years.

'Maddie' opened at London’s Lyric Theatre on September 29th 1997 - the musical which had been in development for nearly 8 years was based on the Jack Finney novel ‘Marion’s Wall’ (adapted as the 1986 film ‘Maxie’) and featured music by Stephen Keeling, lyrics by Shaun McKenna and book by McKenna and Steven Dexter.

The musical tells the story of Nick and Jan Cheyney who have recently moved into a dilapidated attic apartment in downtown San Francisco. Beneath the peeling wallpaper, they are amazed to uncover a message scrawled in lipstick by 1920s dancer Madeline Marsh. Fascinated by the discovery, they are unprepared for the return of its ghostly author still desperate to become a movie star.

‘Maddie’ was developed during the prestigious Stephen Sondheim Masterclass at Oxford University in 1990. After numerous workshops producer Kenny Wax premiered ‘Maddie’ at the Salisbury Playhouse on September 5th 1996. After achieving critical acclaim in Salisbury, the production transferred to London’s Lyric Theatre the following year starring Graham Bickley, Summer Rognlie, Kevin Colson and Lynda Baron.

To mark the 20th anniversary of ‘Maddie’ premiering at the Salibsury Playhouse, Stage Door are pleased to present a 2 Disc Deluxe Edition presentation of the Original London Cast Album. Featuring 3 new 2016 recordings (performed by Meredith Braun, Dominic Hodson, Moir Leslie and Alister Cameron) plus a bonus disc with 25 previously unreleased studio demos of cut songs and alternate versions performed by an illustrious roster of West End stars including John Barrowman, Jacqui Scott, Jonny Rees, Lorna Dallas, John Barr, Angela Richards, Hal Fowler and Teddy Kempner.

Speaking of the new Deluxe Edition Cast Album, original 'Maddie' producer Kenny Way commented:
“I'm thrilled that this new CD of songs from ‘Maddie’ has a chance to breathe a new lease of life into the old girl. Like it's main protagonist Madeline Marsh, I'm sure that one day she will be re-born and come back to entertain a whole new generation.”

At secret locations in South London

Teatro Vivo, in association with the Albany, present:


The Residents

A site-specific ghost story staged in homes across South London
directed by Sophie Austin


As the dark winter nights draw in, Teatro Vivo is inviting audiences to their most intimate show yet: a house viewing with a difference.

After staging Shakespeare in Sainsbury’s supermarkets, Mother Courage in an old weapons factory and The Odyssey on the streets of Deptford, where they performed everywhere from tattoo parlours to pubs, the acclaimed company who have a reputation for staging “theatre where you least expect it” will be inhabiting a different secret south London home each week.


In The Residents the audience, of up to 30 people a time, will become house hunters.  They will be told their appointment time and the nearest train station, but will not be given the exact location until the day of the show.


After meeting estate agent, Amelia Spoke, they will enter the property and hear previous inhabitant’s stories, discovering how disturbing echoes of a places past can be felt in the present.


From a murderess who disposes of her husband, to the bizarre tale of a man who woke up one morning transformed into a beetle, and a carer who is badly in need of care herself, the audience will experience the perturbing tales of those who have resided there before.


Each location will incorporate echoes of its history through the voices and sounds of the real-life neighbours.


With the help of an immersive soundscape, a tapestry of stories will emerge allowing the bricks and mortar currently standing on the space to tell their story.


Inspired by the latest discoveries in gravitational wave technology, that open up the possibilities of multiple universes, new ways at looking at time and how the past and future collide together, The Residents will encourage the audience to consider who came before and what they may leave after they have gone.

Chickenshed present:

by Diane Samuels
directed by Lou Stein

Chickenshed is delighted to announce that Michelle Collins will be taking a leading role in their new moving and thought-provoking play.

Kindertransport is a play about mothers, daughters and the powerful need for reconciliation. This captivating story tells of survival and building a new life - which strikingly resonates with current events facing the world today.

On the brink of World War II, nine-year-old Eva is sent to Britain for refuge from Nazi Europe, with little more than a suitcase and an identity label, one of 10,000 children evacuated in a rescue mission called the Kindertransport. Eva is taken in and raised by a well-meaning English woman. Torn between her German heritage and her need to wipe the Kindertransport experience from her memory, Eva eventually learns to adapt to her new life and identity.

Kindertransport moves seamlessly between different time periods, as Eva confronts the painful past which was chosen for her and its consequences, and we discover whether she is ever to be reunited with the family she was forced to leave behind. Her story is based on autobiographical accounts from actual Kindertransport children.

Adventure to Oz
by Lou Stein

This Christmas we will be presenting a world premiere of a fantastical new musical, based on the much-loved and wonderful Oz stories of L. Frank Baum - Adventure to Oz! The show will be a mammoth undertaking and a true theatrical spectacle, created by our new Artistic Director, Lou Stein – and we absolutely cannot wait to share it with audiences!

In this dazzling production, we will encounter familiar characters such as Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, and we will be introduced to new loveable and memorable characters such as the incredible Patchwork Girl and Ojo the Unlucky Munchkin. We will travel along the famous Yellow Brick Road with a brave band of friends on a quest to release Ojo’s Uncle from an enchantment that has turned him to stone.

Our huge and diverse cast continually wows and entrances audiences and includes hundreds of children, young people and adults all working together to create a theatrical extravaganza.

The production will brilliantly demonstrate our continued desire to reflect and include our entire community.

This will be a show of incredible scale – if you’ve seen a Chickenshed Christmas show before, expect to be even more dazzled and amazed.

Good’s Way, King’s Cross, London, N1C 4UR

This Olivier and Tony Award-winning Broadway musical continues to play in London following a critically acclaimed sell-out UK premiere at Southwark Playhouse in 2014.



Initially booked for a limited 4 week run, 3 Olivier Award-winning Broadway musical In The Heights has extended its run at King’s Cross Theatre for a fourth time, until its final performance on Sunday 8th January 2017.

In The Heights is an uplifting and exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan's most vibrant communities – a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and unforgettable Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.

King’s Cross Theatre is a brand new purpose built theatre at King’s Cross Station.

A late night bar is open to coincide with performances of In The Heights.
Opening an hour before every performance until late, with live music and DJs after certain performances.

Fastest Guitarists. The Great Kat. Ranks among the fastest shredders of all time. She studied classical music and does not play typical thrash metal on the guitar. Instead, she transforms familiar songs from classical music and creates original tunes. The Great Kat considers herself the reincarnation of Beethoven. She also claims to be the only guitar-violin virtuoso since Paganini. The Great Kat uses the Paganini technique that consists of Kat playing with fingers like claws. It is always the dominant driver for classical shredding on guitar with classical technique from the fiddle." - by Jane Blake,


The Great Kat’s new insane Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody Number 2” music video features rapid speed action -- twin Kats, all-male stud band, fast guitar/violin finger-work, Vlad the Vampire, gypsy bacchanal, and more -- from upcoming new DVD.
