  1. Article in the Telegraph today (in today's links) about Stopgap Dance https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/just-us-disabled-dancers-behind-wondrous-new-bbc-film/ David Toole appears in this new dance film BBC4 Nov 18th 11:50pm.
  2. Obituary in some detail in the NYT https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/10/arts/david-toole-disabled-dancer-with-grace-in-his-hands-dies-at-56.html
  3. Sarah Lamb came on stage for Elite still wearing her blue mask....it took her a couple of minutes to realise and then discreetly dispose of it. What strange times.....
  4. Just a reminder. There is no service on the Northern line branch between Moorgate and Kennington tomorrow 31 Oct so you might need to plot a different journey if attending BRB at Sadler's Wells.
  5. Are there cast sheets available ? I didn't spot anything that could be downloaded but I may have missed it.
  6. Obituary in the Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2020/oct/28/david-toole-obituary He had the most amazing stage presence, The work with DV8 was stunning.
  7. It does seem odd that the ROH ticketing system doesn't let you see the available seats and select a seat yourself. Sadler's Wells currently lets you do this, as do the National Theatre and the Bridge Theatre. It gives you a much better idea of what the distancing is like.
  8. I was just wondering if they are using the boxes at all. I think these are usually sold as a unit of 4, but you can't currently request more than 2 tickets for a performance. I thought I got a glimpse of people in boxes on the 9th Oct livestream, but I might be mistaken about that.
  9. Best new dance - Ingoma, Mthuthuzeli November for Ballet Black. Outstanding achievement in Dance - Sarah Baras, Ballet Flamenco Sombras, Sadler's Wells. Best Theatre Choreographer - Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear, Mary Poppins. (Bourne's ninth Olivier award). https://officiallondontheatre.com/olivier-awards/year/olivier-awards-2020/
  10. 19 to 29 Oct Kate Prince ZooNation Some Like it Hip Hop https://www.sadlerswells.com/whats-on/2020/digital-stage-in-focus-sadlers-wells-x-zoonation-the-kate-prince-company/ "Some Like It Hip Hop is a nod to Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. It tells a comical tale of love, mistaken identity and revolution, all played out in ZooNation’s trademark style."
  11. I see from an ROH email that tonight's opera streaming 4 / 4 includes Phaedra which will "also feature Principal dancer of The Royal Ballet: Matthew Ball."
  12. When you buy a ticket, it seems (unless I missed something) that you have to pay by credit card, and there's no option to use a credit voucher. I do have some that I really hope to be using in future, but I didn't spot how to this time. Has anyone else tried to use one ?
  13. What's On Stage has a round up of theatre openings which have been announced for September and October including socially distanced performances at the Bridge Theatre and National Theatre https://officiallondontheatre.com/news/government-confirms-indoor-theatre-performances-can-begin-from-15-august/?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=NL_20_08_16 (1)&spMailingID=43198328&spUserID=NzcxMTkyMzEyNTk2S0&spJobID=1821175645&spReportId=MTgyMTE3NTY0NQS2 They give further details including performances at the Coliseum from 1st Decembe
  14. Zoonation's The Mad Hatter'sTea Party is available from the ROH. until 14 August https://www.roh.org.uk/tickets-and-events/the-mad-hatters-tea-party-stream-details Pairs quite nicely the the BBC Imagine on iplayer about Kate Prince and Zoonation https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000lbqd/imagine-2020-kate-prince-every-move-she-makes
