In my first West End post-show Q&A for The Way Old Friends Do last month, director Mark Gatiss was asked for his thoughts on the actors who bring to life his husband Ian Hallard's new comedy about the world's first ABBA drag tribute band. At the follow-up session last night, we got to hear what the cast thinks of Mark!

In the first of my post-show Q&As for the West End premiere of The Way Old Friends Do, with writer and star Ian Hallard and director Mark Gatiss, it felt like ABBA's Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid were with us in spirit.
There are some shows with modest beginnings that seem to have all of the industry behind them, willing them to succeed. Pride & Prejudice* (*sort of) is one of them.
For the show to lure a nervous (but now fully vaccinated – yay!) me back to the theatre after nearly 15 months, it’s hard to imagine more soothing fare than Amelie The Musical.

What fun to return to the Criterion Theatre to see a brand-new cast put their stamp on Mischief Theatre's The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, as the first in a series of monthly post-show Q&As with the comic geniuses.
I closed out #MischiefMay, celebrating the world-dominating achievements of the comedy masters at Mischief Theatre, with my second of two post-show Q&As to the company's two current West End hits.
