Stream Theatre has a number of new productions in January. Check website for dates.
First a couple of American political dramas:
Waiting for Obama by John Moore 11- 17 January: This was an official selection at the New York International Fringe Festival. In pre-Trump America, a Colorado family is convinced that President Obama is coming for their guns…. and they’re right. A play focusing on the deep divisions in America over gun control versus the constitutional right to bear arms.
And Kennedy: Bobby’s Last Crusade 18-24 January, a one man play about the younger Kennedy’s short lived run for President before his assassination in 1968.
Other new Stream.Theatre offerings include all-star musical Roles We’ll Never Play, with a panoply of West End luminaries taking on roles they wouldn’t normally be offered. Recorded live at the Apollo Theatre before Christmas, and directed by Sasha Regan, it streams from 15-17 January.
Reviewing the live performance in December, Metro described it as “a gender bending spectacular” with men taking on women’s songs and vice versa. See its rave review here metro.co.uk/2020
And finally, there’s Pure Imagination, a musical/dance production filmed in Cambridge based on the wild and wacky characters from Alice in Wonderland. Running from 10-12 January.
