Hyde Park, London

Until 6th January 2019

 The production has just opened their new show INFERNO in their 1700 seater Big Top (the UKs biggest tent).

Stealing the show with their first performance in the circus ring is RAFAEL AND ALAN! The amazing act RAFAEL AND ALAN illustrates all that diversity and power stands for – literally…..this is a unique act bringing audiences to their feet in such a positive way.

RAFAEL FERRERIA was born with a congenital condition arthorgryposis which rendered his legs useless. He uses a wheelchair - which he has to use to get into the ring, and then does a completely mind blowingly amazing hand to hand balancing act with his circus partner Alan, the strength and skill is amazing. See below – and link to many more images for you to use. RAFAEL refuses to let his physical limitations hold him back when it comes to acrobatics. Their unique act instantly sears itself into the memory, from initial gasps the audience jump to their feet giving them a standing ovation at then end of each show and with 3 x INFERNO shows a day that’s a lot of people spontaneously jumping to their feet! The guys come from Brazil and have worked on this act for 4 years to perfect it!

Their performance flips diversity on its head as, this highly original act has the strong man (Alan) playing a Shakespearean Caliban character, and Rafael sets him free from his iron mask and cage and as their hands/friendship grows Rafael leaves his wheelchair and is free too……

Following the critically acclaimed release of 'Lost West End Vintage' (highlighted in The Sunday Times as an "Essential New Release") and 'Lost West End Vintage 2', Stage Door Records are pleased to continue the album series with 'Lost West End Revues.'

LOST WEST END REVUES celebrates London's forgotten revue shows of the 1940s, 50s and 60s, compiling songs from 35 West End productions and showcasing these unique musical works from the golden age of British theatrical entertainment.

Ranging from 1940 to 1962, the selections featured include a broad range of musical styles and genres, from witty songs satirising topical issues of the era to dramatic ballads and entertaining comedy numbers. Musical theatre composers featured on the album include Noel Coward, Vivian Ellis, Sandy Wilson, Lionel Bart, Leslie Bricusse, Charles Zwar, Alan Melville and more. Presented as a Deluxe 2CD Set ; 'Lost West End Revues' features 50 tracks (including over 20 tracks appearing on CD for the first time) from London cast recordings to pop covers and live recordings. The album includes recordings by a glittering ensemble of star performers including Maggie Smith, Kenneth Williams, Hermione Gingold, Noel Coward, Beatrice Lillie, Joyce Grenfell, Anthony Newley, Gillian Lynne, Fenella Fielding, Sheila Hancock, Millicent Martin, Bud Flanagan, Dora Bryan, Cyril Ritchard, Bernard Cribbins and more.

The 'Lost West End Revues' included are: 'C.B. Cochran's Streamline' (1935), 'Lights Up' (1940), 'Up And Doing' (1940), 'Apple Sauce' (1940), 'Rise Above It' (1941), 'Sky High' (1942), 'Big Top' (1942), 'Sweet And Low' (1943), 'Sigh No More' (1945), 'Sweeter And Lower' (1945), 'Sweetest And Lowest' (1946), 'The Night And The Laughter' (1946), 'The Shephard Show' (1946), 'Tuppence Coloured' (1947), 'A La Carte' (1948), 'Sauce Tartare' (1949), 'Penny Plain' (1951), 'The Lyric Revue' (1951), 'Out Of The Blue' (1954), 'You'll Be Lucky' (1954), 'Cranks' (1956), 'At The Drop Of A Hat' (1957), 'Share My Lettuce' (1957), 'Living For Pleasure' (1958), 'Pieces Of Eight' (1959), 'Clown Jewels' (1959), 'Look Who's Here!' (1960), 'New Cranks' (1960), 'Young In Heart' (1960), 'Four To The Bar' (1960) '...And Another Thing' (1960), 'The Lord Chamberlain Regrets...!' (1961), 'On The Brighter Side' (1961), 'One Over The Eight' (1961), 'Not To Worry' (1962)

Although the revue show is no longer a staple fixture in the West End, this album celebrates the forgotten art and affirms the 'lost' revues featured are well worth rediscovering.

It’s the show they’ve all been asking for, and it’s by the people behind the worldwide smash hit, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience.

This fully immersive, brand new show transports audiences to The Nags Head to meet the pride of Peckham in a night of eating, wheeling and dealing. It’s a t’riffic night out with some cushty pub grub – and you’d be a plonker to miss it!

The fun starts from the moment audiences join the Trotters and their friends for a knees-up. Meanwhile, of course, Del tries to drum up some cash and make a cheeky saving on the side. But why is the pub closed on the busiest night of the week? There’s money to be made and debts to be paid!

Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience is a wholly original immersive theatre show written by Interactive Theatre International in loving tribute to the BBC’s Only Fools & Horses TV series.

MJR presents:


Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea Gibson remains one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word poetry scene today. Known for pulling hearts out of chests to either wrench or kiss, Gibson has authored four full-length collections of poems, an illustrated book of their most memorable quotes (Take Me With You, Penguin 2018), and has released seven beloved albums. Gibson regularly sells out 500+ capacity standing room only venues to eager audiences,mouthing along every word, further popularizing the art form and creating a space for each person in the room to feel, and to heal.

In a fierce oscillation between activism and love, Andrea Gibson’s newest literary triumph, released Nov 2018, ‘Lord of the Butterflies’ is a masterful showcase from the renowned poet whose writing and performances have captured the hearts of millions. An artful and nuanced look at gender, romance, loss, and family, this is also a show of protest. While rioting against gun violence, homophobia, and white supremacy, Gibson celebrates gender expansion, queer love, and the will to stay alive. Each emotion in ‘Lord of the Butterflies’ is deft and delicate, resting within imagery heavy enough to sink the heart, while giving the body wings to soar.

Andrea’s ‘Lord of The Butterflies’ tour will be coming to the UK in May 2019. For venues outside London, see

 For the first time, a new book examines the complete output of Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning composer Jonathan Larson.

“Boho Days: The Wider Works of Jonathan Larson,” written by J. Collis and authorized by the Larson estate, is now available.

Covering Larson’s work from student cabarets at Adelphi University through RENT’s creative process, “Boho Days” tells the story of a young composer on the edge of a rapidly changing New York theatre scene. Based on extensive archival research and interviews with over 60 of Larson’s associates and collaborators, Collis’ book features discussion and analysis of major works such as Superbia, tick, tick… BOOM!, J.P. Morgan Saves the Nation, and RENT. “Boho Days” also addresses a number of lesser-known Larson works including his educational theatre compositions, a collaboration with National Lampoon, and the children’s video Away We Go!

“I initially wrote an article about Superbia,” said Collis, an alumni of Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. “It became clear pretty quickly that there was so much more to write about, that nobody was writing about it, and that the first step would be to demystify the collection and let people know where to start.” The article, “Static on a Screen”, was published in Studies in Musical Theatre from Intellect Ltd., and a revised version featuring additional research is included in “Boho Days.”

J. Collis earned his Master of Arts in Theatre Studies from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama before working as a part-time freelance theatre and media critic. Following a path into production, he has since moved into film localization and streaming media. He currently resides in Berlin, Germany.

“Boho Days” is now available globally in hardback (ISBN 978-3-00-059113-6) and digitally (978-3-00-059112-9) in the USA, Canada, UK, and Germany.
Hard copies are available from all bookstores.

Digital distribution is serviced through StreetLib.
Libraries can order via Ingram and Overdrive.


Illuminations is delighted to announce the release of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella on DVD and Blu-ray. Following sell-out UK performances, the release coincides with an exciting international tour and the opening of Bourne’s newest 2018-19 revival of Swan Lake.

Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is a thrilling and evocative love story told in dance. A reinterpretation of the classic fairy tale, it features heart-stopping choreography and vivid, truthful characters. Originally mounted in 1997 but recreated as a completely fresh production in 2017, this is one of New Adventures' most popular and beloved creations.

Set in London during the Second World War, the drama features Cinderella and a dashing young RAF pilot. Together just long enough to fall in love, they are parted by the horrors of the Blitz. Among the obstacles to their reunion is Cinderella’s sinister step-mother, while the ethereal Angel weaves his magic to protect our heroine.

Olivier Award-winning designer Lez Brotherston’s sumptuous costumes and sets provide a glorious backdrop to the dancing of a wonderful cast. The accompaniment is a specially commissioned recording of Sergei Prokofiev’s magnificent score, played by a 60-piece orchestra and enhanced by Paul Groothuis’ vivid sound design.

Performed as part of the company’s 30th anniversary celebrations, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella creates on stage the sights and sounds of a war-torn London with the help of lighting designer Neil Austin and Duncan McLean’s video projections.

The Making of Cinderella (20 minutes) features interviews with cast members Ashley Shaw, Andrew Monaghan, Liam Mower and Michela Meazza as well as New Adventures’ founder, Matthew Bourne.

The Clockmaker’s Daughter
Studio Cast Recording

Acclaimed new British musical The Clockmaker’s Daughter premiered in London in 2015 and has, to date, been nominated for 11 awards.

Now an all-star cast of leading West End performers has been assembled for The Clockmaker’s Daughter – Studio Recording, a thrilling new studio recording of Michael Webborn and Daniel Finn’s musical faerytale.

Christine Allado (Constance) is currently starring as Peggy Schuyler in Hamilton in the West End, Ramin Karimloo (Abraham) was The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera and Love Never Dies), Fra Fee (Will Riley) was in The Ferryman, Royal Court and West End, Matthew Croke (Henry Glynn) is currently starring in the title role in Disney’s Aladdin in the West End, Lauren James Ray (Amelia) Glinda and Nessarose in the West End production of Wicked, head up the cast, with more to be announced.

The Clockmaker’s Daughter, an original story with original music, is set in the fictional Irish town of Spindlewood. Like most towns of age, Spindlewood, has its traditions. But no practice, custom or old wives’ warning is so firmly adhered to as ‘The Turning of the Key’. Every year, on the last night of winter, as the first day of spring unfolds, the townsfolk gather to take part in a strange ritual... The Clockmaker’s Daughter is a beautiful story built around themes of prejudice, discrimination, animosity and a fear of the unknown - a folk musical with a specific, yet timeless, feel.

Writers Michael Webborn and Daniel Finn met during a workshop at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2010. Their first full-length musical, The Clockmaker’s Daughter, premiered at the Landor Theatre in Clapham. The show went on to a sell out run and critical success. In 2016, it completed a further sell-out run at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall and was also produced by Trinity Laban. To date, it has been nominated for 11 awards

The Clockmaker’s Daughter - Studio Cast Recording is Executive Produced by David Ball Productions. The record is Produced by Joe Davison for Auburn Jam Music, and will be released by Auburn Jam Records later this year with limited edition CDs, complete with cover design by Kyle Lambert (Stranger Things) and original concept artwork by Daniel Finn.
