Liam cuts a dash as Edward Scissorhands at The Lowry At 22, Liam Mower is already an old hand at bringing Matthew Bourne’s ground-breaking productions to life. He has previously appeared in Bourne’s Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty, having joined the company in his mid-teens following a hugely successful run in the West End in the original production of Billy Elliot: The Musical – for which he won an Olivier Award. But now he takes on the role that even Bourne has described as was one of his greatest ambitions to bring to the stage: Edward Scissorhands, the central character in the classic Tim Burton film. “For me, I feel like I know Edward Scissorhands really well,” says Liam. “I saw it when I was younger and it’s now one of my favourite movies. “Some of this theatre production is very similar – and Edward is very much the same as Johnny Depp’s portrayal in the movie. But there’s a lot of difference as well; there’s a lot more dance for a start!” The New Adventures ...

Shakespeare's Globe on Screen presents THE TEMPEST, screening this Tuesday, 10/28 at 7:00pm! Tickets: Duke of Milan (Roger Allam), usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda (Jessie Buckley) and served by his spirit Ariel (Colin Morgan) and the deformed slave Caliban (James Garnon). When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach. Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest, recorded live on stage earlier in 2014, is Shakespeare's late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment. Director Jeremy Herrin's previous work for Shakespeare's Globe includes 2011's much loved Much Ado About Nothing. Roger Allam won the Olivier Award for Best Actor for his role as Falstaff in Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 at the Globe in 2010.

I have just returned from my 3rd visit to one of the most entertaining shows in the West End - The West End Men!  This show is nothing short of phenomenal, the four leads have such charisma and camaraderie - their rapport with the audience is charming and faultless.
