Last weekend, Breakfast’s Chris Harris and Rock Your Sock Off’s David Luck travelled up to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival, alongside photographer Meg Shipham. Wearing NLive Radio T-shirts to represent the station, we saw some great shows, interesting exhibits and did some great shopping! David is still up in Edinburgh this week, as he’s performing […]

The outgoing boss of Royal & Derngate Martin Sutherland has warned that Northamptonshire’s councils must fund the arts to help the economic recovery of the area. When the County Council is abolished new unitary authorities will be formed and not all the councillors taking part will have experience of providing arts funding. Martin said his […]

Flashdance is one of many 1980’s movies that have gone from screen to stage but arguably it should have stuck to the big screen as the stage revival which visits MK Theatre this week does little to wow the audiences. Producers have cleverly eyed the title as a winner with bums on seats to capitalise […]

It’s a fantastic story of love, family and community in the face of adversity and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good dramatic musical. As someone who did not know anything about this play before I heard it was at the Royal and Derngate, I was pleasantly surprised on the night.  When […]

If you haven’t already caught this show on tour before, then the wait will have been worthwhile if you go along to MK Theatre this week. The latest staging of the Curve production from 2014 brings back several favourites in their roles, with a plethora of new faces. The talent on offer in the show […]

Crazy for You is performed at MK Theatre until Saturday. Our breakfast show host Richard gives the lowdown on the musical. The Story: The story centres on the character Bobby, he is desperate to see his name in lights on Broadway but down on his luck. His job as a banker see’s him sent to […]

Rarely do you leave the theatre and spend most of the journey home chatting about the stunning costumes or the clever staging of the production; but with Shrek I did just that. In fact I was quite disappointed at the end of the show not to have been able to applaud what must be a […]

When it comes to converting favourites from television and film to stage, its fair to say that success has been mixed. Maybe it was for this reason that Kay Mellor (writer and director) ensured she was still presiding over the transition of Fat Friends from TV to stage. Fifteen years since its debut on our […]

This week I feel like I have stepped back into a music time warp and arrived firmly at the 1960’s. I followed up watching ‘Beautiful’ with a trip to Royal & Derngate to see the brand new musical ‘Cilla’. It’s a story about the rise to fame of one of Britain’s biggest stars, its certain […]

It’s safe to say, when I sat amongst the packed out audience at MK Theatre on Tuesday, I was quite possibly one of the youngest audience members. With age comes wisdom and that wisdom would have assured the massed ranks that there was no way a musical featuring the music of Carole King could ever […]
