The Color Purple

Rehearsal and production shots from Sunday’s spectacular, all-star concert staging of The Color Purple at the Cadogan Hall, held in aid of the British Theatre Academy.

The Academy’s aim is to ensure young people have access to professional stage training regardless of their socioeconomic background.

In rehearsal: Room

Rehearsal shots for Room, the stage adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s bestselling novel (and movie) of the same name.

The show looks at the lives of a mother held captive for seven years in a purpose-built room and her five-year-old son, who knows nothing else until they escape…

In rehearsal: The Braille Legacy

Publicity and rehearsal shots for new musical The Braille Legacy, which opens at the Charing Cross Theatre next week.

The show follows the story of Louis Braille, a blind boy who revolutionised the lives of the blind with his invention of a tactile alphabet.

In rehearsal: Death Takes a Holiday

Rehearsal shots for the musical Death Takes a Holiday, which opens imminently at the Charing Cross Theatre.

In Rehearsal: The Autumn Garden

Rehearsal shots from the forthcoming production of Lillian Hellman’s The Autumn Garden at the Jermyn Street Theatre.

The show opens on 5 October.

Counting Stars

Advertising, rehearsal and production shots for the hilarious and thought-provoking (in equal measure) Counting Stars at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

The show, which follows two nightclub toilet attendants with dreams through Valentine’s Day night, runs to 17 September.

In Rehearsal: The Collector

Rehearsal shots from The Collector, the practical guide to how not to get someone to fall in love with you by kidnapping them, coming to the Vaults from next week.

The show stars the wonderfully talented twosome of Daniel Portman (Game of Thrones) and Lily Loveless (Skins).

The ice cream van cometh

Rehearsal shots (and ice cream!) from Beacons, which opens on 22 March at the Park Theatre and will place stars Tessa Peake-Jones, Paul Kemp and Emily Burnett on the grassy slopes of Beachy Head.

Opera Noir

Rehearsal photos usually look very bright, very white, and very floaty.  But sometimes the venue just doesn’t want to play ball and you end up with something rather pleasantly different.

So, publicity shots and tremendously film-noir style rehearsal photos for the forthcoming opera play, Dress Rehearsal, which opens at the OSO Arts…

I Loved Lucy

Super-saturated publicity and rehearsal shots for playwright Lee Tannen’s I Loved Lucy, based on his memoir of his time with Lucille Ball.


The show, which comes to the Jermyn Street Theatre next month, stars Sandra Dickinson and Matthew Bunn, and promises to be a blast.
