Leicester’s Curve theatre has released the latest episode of its ‘Curve in Conversation’ podcast, a look ahead at this autumn’s line-up of productions including interviews with multi-award winning master of mind control Derren Brown, actor Sharan Phull and director Anthony Almeida.
In this episode, Martin speaks with the winner of the 2019 Royal Theatrical Support Trust (RTST) Sir Peter Hall Director Award, Anthony Almeida, about the upcoming Made at Curve production of Tennessee Williams’ Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.
Originally scheduled to run last year, Anthony discusses how he has continued to work on ideas with designer Rosanna Vize and how their plans are set to challenge preconceptions of the drama.
Derren Brown will visit Curve for the first time this autumn with performances of Showman (19 – 23 Oct). In the podcast, he also explains how events of the last 16 months have shaped the plans for his new tour.
Finally in this episode of Curve in Conversation, Martin speaks with Leicester-based actor Sharan Phull, who will visit the theatre (20 – 25 Sep) in the tour of smash-hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
