Falling in love with cinema again ✨

Falling in love with cinema again ✨

I think when you don’t do something for a long time, the longer you put off doing it again, the scarier it seems. For some reason, the whole experience of going to the cinema had become something stressful for me rather than something to do for fun.

But after a really (REALLY) sucky day yesterday, I just got this overwhelming feeling that I needed to completely divert my brain for a few hours at least. It was too late to see a show and I was standing in the middle of Piccadilly Circus thinking, “there must be SOMETHING I can do to make this day the tiniest bit better???” I then realised I was literally staring right at Picturehouse Central – the swankiest of cinemas, I might add. It’s a gorgeous building but for some reason I’d never really taken it in on my daily hurry through Piccadilly.

To put this into context, it had been well over a year since I’d last been to the cinema, so the fact that this building lured me in is HUGE.

The minute I walked in, I knew I’d made the right choice. For someone who developed a weird fear of going to the cinema, I LOVE popcorn, so that sudden smell of popcorny goodness was a dream.

I realised that Oceans’ 8 was playing, a film that stars some of my absolute faves in the film industry. After the horrible day I’d had, a film where the ultimate girl squad performs a masterclass robbery at the Met Gala sounded like the perfect antidote.

I suppose I just wanted to write this to remind myself (and maybe even a few other people), that just because something you once loved doing has disappeared from your life, it doesn’t have to be gone forever. Since moving to London, I’ve been able to conquer so many of my fears and embrace so much of what this incredible city has to offer. Within the madness that is Soho on a Saturday night, I could have been anywhere in the world in that cinema – that’s the feeling I’d missed so much.

It also undoubtedly helped that this is definitely the most gorgeous cinema I’ve ever been to. If you’re looking for night at the cinema that feels extra special, Picturehouse Central is the one to go to. I found myself almost reluctant to leave afterwards which is why I decided to take these snaps of the dreamy interiors. There’s such a calm yet buzzy atmosphere in the building and with a grand staircase and chic bar/restaurant upstairs, it’s much more like going to the theatre than a cinema.

For many, going to the cinema may be an enjoyable yet slightly mundane experience if you always go to your local. If you want to add back in some of the magic of the movies, I highly recommend going to Picturehouse Central. As someone who has loved watching films her whole life, I was genuinely worried that going to the cinema was just something I’d have to accept I couldn’t do anymore. So I’m beyond happy that I now know I’ve got somewhere as lovely as this to escape for a few hours when I need it.

I’m already planning when to go back and am so pleased to be smitten with cinema once again.

Rosy Roundup – West End Live 🤟🏼

Rosy Roundup – West End Live 🤟🏼

So last weekend was a stagey one to say the least. On 16th and 17th June, THOUSANDS of people gathered in Trafalgar Square for a big old sing song and it was wonderful. This was actually my first year attending West End Live (I know right?!) and I’m so glad I got to share it with such amazing people.

I thought I’d share some of my favourite performances from the weekend. I didn’t manage to catch every single one but saw a fair few over the 2 days and these were the ones that stood out for me:

* Little Shop of Horrors *

This cast literally hadn’t even started rehearsals when they performed last weekend but they were on fire! I absolutely love the music in Little Shop of Horrors and their set made me so excited for their production that’s coming to the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre this August. Matt Willis absolutely smashed it as the Dentist and I can’t wait to see more from this cast. There was so much charisma up on stage and it definitely got me and my pals bopping along. This production sounds so innovative with their choice to cast US drag queen, Vicky Vox, as Audrey II (the plant) so it’s definitely not one to miss this Summer.

* Heathers *

Of course this was going to be in my favourites but guys…they were incredible. After just completing a week of previews and still in the midst of full days rehearsing and tweaking the show, they then turn up and deliver the insane performance they did on Sunday?!?! This cast are simply a sensation. I’m not going to go on about Heathers too much as if you want to hear all the reasons I love it so much, check my Rosy Roundup of the show after I was lucky enough to watch their dress rehearsal. All I will say is, the fact that even standing there alongside thousands of other people, in a very informal setting outside the context of the show, I STILL welled up watching Carrie Hope Fletcher and Jamie Muscato sing “Seventeen”. This show and the people in it are magic.

* Bat Out of Hell *

This is a show that I strangely haven’t managed to get round to seeing. However, their performance at West End Live has really made me want to get to the Dominion Theatre and have a watch. Andrew Polec’s vocals are actually insane. He’s a proper rockstar. I also really loved the choreography in their numbers and the cast were just giving it their all; the energy they brought for their whole set was incredible. It’s a show that really suited the festival/concert vibes of the event so was unsurprisingly a huge crowd-pleaser.

* Eugenius! *

There must be something good in the air conditioning at The Other Palace because, similarly to Heathers, the cast of Eugenius! just seem like a lovely bunch of people. I was gutted to have missed this show when it was on before so was THRILLED when it was announced they’d be returning to The Other Palace in September. We were truly living our best lives fist pumping in “Go Eugenius!” and their whole set was just loads of fun and put a big old smile on my face.

So those are just a few highlights of an incredible weekend. The event is organised so well that even for someone like me, who isn’t the biggest fan of standing in amongst such huge crowds, it remained a positive and fun experience. A huge well done to all those involved in running the event and who work so hard to make it happen every year. The fact that it remains completely free and open to all theatre-lovers makes me so happy and long may it continue.

Rosy Roundup – It’s Only Life 🎶

Rosy Roundup – It’s Only Life 🎶

I had the absolute pleasure of watching It’s Only Life last week at the Union Theatre. It’s a musical revue featuring the songs of John Bucchino and has a cast of five INCREDIBLE performers. It’s about love, life and everything in between. I’ll admit that I had never heard any of John Bucchino’s music before but after this production, I really want to check out more of his work.

Image 18-06-2018 at 10.45

The piece was directed really well by Tania Azevedo, with William Whelton’s slick choreography ensuring the piece flowed seamlessly, despite having no dialogue in its entirety. The scene changes were really well executed and linked each different story really well, so as an audience it was clear there was a change of situation and we were now onto a new character. There’s always the risk with a musical revue that, without any context, there could be a lack of coherence in the performance as a whole if each song is a stand-alone number, but I didn’t get that at all with It’s Only Life and was pleasantly surprised by its overall clarity.

I should probably mention that I am a massive harmonies geek. I was also that girl at school who ran the a cappella choir, so when the performers soared into some stunning five-part harmonies, I think I was in actual heaven. For this, I’ve got to take a moment to acknowledge the Musical Director, Nick Barstow, for doing such an incredible job and for  his accompaniment throughout the whole show. You forget that it’s literally just 5 singers and a piano, but it never felt lacking in energy. (When I was making notes straight after the performance for this blog post I wrote: “SUCH tight harmonies. Like so on it. Omg. SO GOOD.” 😂)

The cast consists of Will Carey, Sammy Graham, Jennifer Harding, Jordan Shaw and Noel Sullivan and WOAH they can sing. It was so nice to watch a piece where each individual performer had substantial material, with around 8 company numbers and each singer having several complete solo songs to perform as well. Each singer has such a unique sound so it was wonderful to watch them all have moments where they could shine.

I don’t think I’ve ever raved so much about lighting in a show before so, Clancy Flynn (cracking name by the way…), I salute you. Seriously though, I’ve never properly taken in light sequences before but the changes were done in such a creative way that added a whole different dimension to each scene. The Union Theatre is such a small space that I can imagine formatting lighting must be challenging, so I was so pleased that this worked so well. Who knew good lighting could be so emotional?? It was seriously good.

I don’t know if this has been done in other versions of this production before or if it was an addition for this new production, but one thing I really loved was the representation of same gender relationships. This was done in such a “normal” way, in that they didn’t make a huge deal about it because, why would you? These songs are about love and life and, to truly represent that, you’ve got to include relationships that aren’t solely heterosexual. I almost didn’t mention it in the roundup but it’s something that, because they didn’t make a big deal about it, is kind of a big deal. (You know?) I just thought it was done so beautifully and was a real reflection of love in this world, so it was absolutely right that several numbers were set with two actresses or two actors. Being a musical revue helped, I think, as it stripped away all the other layers of judgment we place onto a relationship and could just sit back and appreciate a representation of two people in love – amazing!

They involved the audience in such a wonderful way too. Don’t freak out – you don’t have to get up on stage or anything, but the informal atmosphere created by the actors properly interacting with the audience created such a warm environment which gave the piece an even greater sense of integrity and truth. Being in such a small space, you’re right in front of the performers, and with no microphones they’re so exposed but it made it such a personal and intimate experience. With nothing to hide behind, their stagecraft was made all the more impressive.

It’s a thinker, this one – and boy, did it make me think. I got really emotional in the final number but when you’ve got gorgeous music, insane vocals, beautiful lyrics and DID I MENTION THE COOL LIGHTING, what more could you want?

It’s Only Life is currently at the Union Theatre until 7th July so I urge you to try and catch it while you can.

Rosy Roundup – Heathers the Musical 💛❤️💚💙

Rosy Roundup – Heathers the Musical 💛❤️💚💙

So in a wonderful twist of fate, I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the dress rehearsal of Heathers the Musical at The Other Palace….I know right?! Mad!

I’m beyond pleased that my first “Rosy Roundup” is of this wonderful production. It’s a show that means a huge deal to me, as I know it does to many people. It’s got such a loyal fan base and I have to applaud the marketing team for Heathers and The Other Palace for embracing the incredible community of Heathers fans around the globe in the lead up to this production. From their “Big Fun Fridays” on Twitter, to ensuring a huge amount of lower-priced tickets were available for audiences, it’s safe to say Heathers has made its mark on London. There are so many elements of the show I’ve barely even touched on and this is by no means all of my thoughts but I wanted to write something that was genuine and fresh so here goes…

I was lucky enough to catch the workshop of Heathers last year at The Other Palace and was THRILLED to see the return of several cast members. One of these was the amazing Jamie Muscato, playing J.D. I could genuinely write a whole blog post on Jamie’s performance. He’s such an incredibly skilled performer and I am so pleased he is reprising this role. He portrays J.D in such a subtle and distinct way, with just the right amount of psychopath (!) I think with a character like J.D it could be tempting for an actor to go down the really crazy route, but the impressive thing about Jamie’s performance is that he manages to make J.D so likeable as well – so, just like Veronica, the audience want so badly to root for him despite the horrendous things he does. For me, good acting is so much to do with the eyes and, without trying to sound cheesy, his are just magnetic and his stage presence is incredible. I will stop gushing now haha but it was just such a standout performance that I think deserves so much recognition.

Of course, Carrie Hope Fletcher was a joy to watch. Probably one of the most iconic moments in the show is right at the start where Veronica runs out onto the stage for the end of “Beautiful” after her infamous makeover from the Heathers. There’s something about the orchestrations of this song that just makes it so moving , and Carrie absolutely nailed it. I can only imagine how daunting it must have been to step into a role that is so engrained in the minds of Heathers fans but Carrie has truly made the role her own and brings a fresh new take on Veronica. She showcases her diverse vocal talents in what is a HUGE sing, and is able to present Veronica as the complex character she is because of this.

I’m not gonna lie – I definitely sobbed a bit throughout “Seventeen” and “Our Love Is God“.  I think “Seventeen” in particular is SUCH a gorgeous song and it just gets me in the gut. In all of Veronica and J.D’s duets in fact, it’s just like time stops and for a second you forget about all the craziness that has happened in the plot and just see two lost teenagers who have fallen deeply for each other. Great, right?

Some of my other favourite moments included “The Me Inside of Me” and especially Jodie Steele‘s hilarious ending to this number. (*Side note* – kind of in love with Heather Chandler’s dressing gown too; Jodie rocks it.) I also LOVED the new song for Heather Duke, sung (/slayed) by T’Shan Williams. I don’t want to ruin anything but there’s a moment in this song…guys…you’re gonna love it. I’m so on board with this new number and felt it really gave another layer to Heather Duke’s character which only added to the story. Sophie Isaacs, playing Heather McNamara, also displays some of the best comedic timing I’ve seen and is one of the other cast members who I’m so thrilled is reprising their role from the workshop last year.

Another standout performance was “Shine A Light“, led masterfully by Rebecca Lock as Ms Fleming. This is such a great number with some amazing choreography and use of props (like super shiny fun props – trust me). Especially in The Other Palace which is such an intimate space, the engagement of the audience is so key and this was done SO well in this number. Rebecca’s vocals are MAD. Get ready for all of the riffs – you’re gonna love it.

I’m so glad that Heathers exists. It’s such an important piece of theatre and one that truly holds up a mirror to us as human beings. We have the capability of being truly awful to each other, but we also have the capability of being kind, accepting and loving. Heathers highlights the fact that we’re all damaged; all of us. There’s no way to get rid of pain in the world, but that doesn’t mean it is not a world worth living in – and by sticking together, it truly can be made beautiful.

It fills me with so much joy that everything I witnessed will only grow and blossom as the run goes on and I feel so privileged to have gotten the opportunity to see it before the first preview. It’s certainly an experience I won’t be forgetting in a hurry. The fact that this was their first proper run through and it was already at the standard it was is, like….mind-baffling. I doubt many dress rehearsals get standing ovations?!

To all those involved in Heathers; the cast, crew, creative team – thank you. Whilst I have given it a go, I really can’t put into words what this show means to me and I’m just so happy that the production is everything I hoped it would be and more.

* I know that there are very few tickets left so please (PLEASE) if you’re considering booking at all, do it – you won’t regret it. There’s also a lottery you can enter on The Other Palace’s website (https://www.theotherpalace.co.uk/whats-on/heathers-the-musical) every Friday for the chance to get £25 tickets! How very! *

I hope you enjoyed the first of many Rosy Roundups!

5 Positive Creatives you need to know about ☀️

5 Positive Creatives you need to know about ☀️

Here on Rose’s Supposes, I’m all for making life a little bit rosier. I was recently watching the Instagram stories of Caroline Kay (an actress/singer/songwriter with an INCREDIBLE EP out called Notes which I highly recommend…) who spoke about the importance of supporting one another’s creative endeavours in an industry that is often deemed highly competitive. She mentioned the idea of people promoting their peers with #FriendToFollow on social media. What a great idea! 👏🏼

This got me thinking about the people I follow on social media who I’m certain have a positive impact on my day to day life through their posts. A huge number of us use social media so often now that you really have to filter what’s coming towards you if you want to be seeing positive content. I’ve recently made a huge effort to ensure that I’m following people who produce content that adds to my life, rather than feeding in negative energy that I could do without.

It’s so easy to focus on your own social media presence and your own content, but some of the most innovate creative projects emerge when people choose to join their platforms and use them in a positive way. The theatre community in London seems to be going from strength to strength, with a huge rise in charity events and fundraisers. These include West End Bake Off in aid of Acting For Others and the already thriving West End Does series- their first concert, The Magic of Animation at Cadogan Hall, not only wowed audiences with a star-studded line up, but was also in association with the Make A Wish foundation. Events like these are so important in maintaining this sense of community in the West End and it seems we are gradually catching up with Broadway who arguably have a much more established sense of community between shows and with their collective audiences. I’m so happy to see this change and can’t wait to see where it leads.

SO, I was inspired by Caroline to join the #FriendToFollow bandwagon and share some people who make the internet (and the real world!) a little bit rosier. Whilst I don’t have the privilege of calling these people friends of mine as I don’t know them personally and still have a very humble platform here on my new blog, I can’t see how steering even a few people over to some positive influencers could possibly be a bad thing. So, from my stagey little corner of the internet to you, here are some cracking individuals who I’d recommend you get following. They are not only INSANELY talented, creative individuals, but use their platforms in a refreshingly uplifting way.

1) Carrie Hope Fletcher

@CarrieHFletcher

Carrie is a very well known figure in the industry, having established herself as not only an extremely talented performer, but a hugely successful author and vlogger too. She is the perfect example of not allowing yourself to be pigeon-holed, and by embracing her multitude of talents has become a respected individual in several creative fields. That’s pretty badass. Carrie undoubtedly lives up to her middle name by tirelessly providing a positive and encouraging platform for her followers that is ever Hopeful. Having admired her career for several years now, I have loved watching her become a leading figure in promoting kindness and positivity online.

*Great for* Authenticity, body positivity and origami dragons (no, really!)

2) Lin Manuel Miranda

@Lin_Manuel

Lin’s good morning and good night tweets have helped me personally on countless occasions. I’m constantly sending them to do friend who isn’t on Twitter as they honestly make such a difference to my day. We all know from In the Heights and Hamilton that Lin has a way with words. It’s kind of his thing. But these little snippets of genius is like a getting a glimpse inside that wonderful brain of his. So, if you’re looking to feel inspired and uplifted, give him a follow. I’m certainly following Old Man Miranda all the way.

*Great for* Daily motivation, energy boosts and classic old school home videos.

3) Lesli Margherita

@QueenLesli

If you haven’t come across Lesli before, I’m pretty excited for you. She won an Olivier Award for her role in Zorro the Musical and played Mrs Wormwood in Matilda on Broadway for 2 years, so she’s a basically a multitalented superstar. She’s established herself as “Auntie Lesli” to theatre kids everywhere and, if you’re looking for some motivation, check out her “Here is what I know” posts that’s pinned at the top of her Twitter. She consistently reminds people to be unapologetic for who they are and recognise their worth. She is the Queen of “keeping it real” and embraces the not-so-glamorous elements of the industry. Did I mention she’s also a Star Wars mega fan? Yeah. She’s like, seriously cool.

*Great for* Self-confidence, relatable audition struggles and hilarious NYC anecdotes

4) Sierra Boggess

@sierraboggess

My, oh my. This lady. Sierra has been a huge inspiration to me for several years now. Not only is she one of the most talented sopranos out there, she brings so much positive energy and she just shines. Her signature phrase is “You are enough! You are SO enough! It’s unbelievable how enough you are!” How great is that? You can even subscribe to her blog at sierraboggess.com to read exclusive posts based around her word of the month. Sierra’s goodness recently came to the forefront when she announced she would no longer be taking part in the BBC Proms concert of West Side Story this summer, saying “if I were to do this concert, it would once again deny Latina’s the opportunity to sing this score, as well as semi the IMPORTANCE of seeing themselves represented on stage.” Turning down such an iconic role to acknowledge the bigger picture and highlight the need for diverse casting (ESPECIALLY in this show), is just one of the many reasons Sierra is an inspiration to so many. She’s also a huge Barbra Streisand fan so it’s safe to say we’re on the same wavelength.

*Great for* Mindfulness, focus and all of the cat pictures.

5) Caroline Kay

@CarolineKay117

There’s no way I could have written this post without the inspiration from Caroline’s Instagram but I also know that, had the idea come from somewhere else, she would definitely still have featured amongst my favourite positive influencers on social media. She recently proved this to a huge degree with her support for the Repeal the 8th campaign. I will admit that I had no idea what this was before Caroline explained it on her social media a few months ago and was consistently spreading awareness of the issue right up until the day of the vote. She’s extremely active on all her social media channels and I urge you to watch her Instagram stories of you need a giggle. She’s also got her own EP out called Notes which showcases what a talent she is as a songwriter as well as a performer. I honestly can’t wait to see what’s next for her.

*Great for* Iconic Irish humour, songwriting sneak peaks and the snack combo of dreams

#FriendToFollow

I also couldn’t write this post without properly taking part in #FriendToFollow so head over to my Twitter, @OliviaDowden where I’ve posted about why you should follow my gorgeous friend Ellie’s blog; Noise of London. She gets to know Londoners through their love of music and is cooler than I’ll ever be. Go show her some love. (She also has a super artsy Instagram account at @eleanor_dalton) ✨

Even if you don’t check out the influencers I’ve mentioned above, I urge you to consider using whatever platform you have to celebrate your friends and their achievements. It goes such a long way in making the world a bit nicer.

If you do use #FriendToFollow, feel free to tag me in your posts! I would love to discover some new creatives out there who are crushing it 💪🏼

My Favourite Movie Musicals

My Favourite Movie Musicals

Well hello there!

Welcome to the first of many “supposes” I will be sharing with you here on my shiny new blog, Rose’s Supposes.

I thought a nice way to introduce the blog would be to share some of my favourite movie musicals with you. These aren’t necessarily my favourite musicals of all time, as many of my favourites have remained exclusively on stage, but I have no doubt that watching these iconic movie musicals as I was growing up played a huge role in fuelling my love for live theatre. There’s something so magical about them but I’m going to do my best not to get too soppy on you even though these all make my heart MELT. I had to feature some of the classics but I’ve also included some slightly lesser known films that are equally absolute gems. So here we go..!

1. Singin’ in the Rain – 1952

I think this is quite possibly my favourite film of all time (I did a project on it in year 7 so it must be true…) There’s nothing quite like Gene Kelly’s cheeky grin to make even the worst of days seem a little bit better. Whilst the film is most widely known for its title song, I couldn’t include it in this list without mentioning the number “Moses Supposes” (*fun fact* the song that inspired the name of this blog) as being one of my favourite numbers. A huge element of the genius of Singin’ in the Rain is the choreography and this is just one of the many numbers that showcases the impeccable stagecraft (/screencraft..?) of Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor.

2. Bedknobs and Broomsticks – 1971

I will be forever grateful to my grandparents for watching this over and over with me (to be fair, I think they loved it too) when I was younger. You can’t help but fall in love with Angela Lansbury in this film. A group of WW2 evacuees find themselves in the house of Miss Eglantine Price who is secretly studying witchcraft. Before long they are in a magical land of talking animals and it’s bloomin’ marvellous. This film is the sole reason that whenever I’m in Notting Hill I can’t help but hum “Portobello Road“. If you’re looking for a film to make you feel all fuzzy inside like Mary Poppins, this is one to check out.

3. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – 1968

I’m sure this film is a favourite even for those who aren’t particularly into musical theatre. It’s just so magical and a perfect example of the ability musicals have to whisk you away from reality. I don’t think I’ll ever not have a little panic when the car heads off the cliff edge but *spoiler alert* it’s all good guys…it’s a freakin’ flying car!?!? Iconic. I’m not going to lie and pretend Truly Scrumptious isn’t up there on my bucket list of roles to play too.

4. Pete’s Dragon – 1977

I don’t know if this one is really classed as a musical but there are some gorgeous tunes in it. It follows the story of, you’ve guessed it, Pete and his dragon My favourite numbers are probably “It’s Not Easy” and “There’s Room for Everyone” sung by Helen Reddy. The choreography in this film, with huge scale dance numbers and some top notch pre-Matilda “swing usage” is also great. There was a recent non-musical remake of the film in 2016 but I’m personally holding on to this gem in all its ’70s glory. It also features Mickey Rooney who’s an absolute legend.

5. Hello Dolly – 1969

I DEFY you not to smile at least at the finale of this film. Barbra Streisand is (I legit had to sit back and stop typing for a few minutes as I couldn’t think how to describe how incredible she is…) I MEAN?? Queen Babs is just a dream as Dolly Levi and you can’t not adore a young Michael Crawford too. You’ve got Babs, men in tailcoats, LOUIS ARMSTRONG and it’s just glorious.

AND FINALLY….

6. The Producers – 2005 (the Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick version)

I really tried to keep this list to just 5 films but I just couldn’t leave this one out. I know this isn’t the original version but it’s the one I grew up watching and I just love it. Mel Brooks’ humour is SO great. This musical is controversial to say the least and I first watched it at a hilariously young age considering the content. For me, it’s one of those films where you’re already laughing at the start of the scene because you know what’s coming up. *Top tip* If you really want to belly laugh, watch the bloopers from this film. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve re-watched these and they continue to make me laugh.

So I DEFINITELY broke my own rule to not start gushing over these films and verged on fangirling for the majority of this post…but it’s difficult to contain how much I love them. They’re one of the main reasons I decided to enter this insane industry and so I will be forever grateful for their existence.

If this post prompts you to check out or revisit some of these movie musicals, let me know! I would love to hear your thoughts on them 🙂

You can find me on twitter as @OliviaDowden and make sure to follow @OR_Supposes for more of Rose’s Supposes!

Stay stagey,

Olivia Rose 🌹

Hello!

Hello!

Hello and welcome to Rose’s Supposes! I’m Olivia Rose and on this blog I’m going to be sharing my musical musings, theatrical thoughts and puns…lots of puns.

I will warn you in advance that there will be many references to Stephen Sondheim on this blog so, if you’re not familiar with the mighty Steve, you’re in for a real treat.

If nothing else, I hope this blog inspires all the theatre kids out there to remain unapologetically stagey. This world can be a pretty dark place sometimes so if I can make a little corner of it that bit rosier, that’s what I’m gonna do.

For now, let’s see how this goes shall we?
