Dorian: A Rock Musical

A casualty first of the pandemic and then of the whims of so-called theatre saviour Andrew Lloyd Webber, Dorian: A Rock Musical now has a limited run on Stream.Theatre as a newly filmed digital production.

Wish list: The Show Must Go Online

This week The Show Must Go Online headed off into new territory, eschewing Shakespeare and anything Shakespeare-related with their latest production: John Lyly’s Gallathea (with a majority LGBTQIA+ cast).
