FOUR NEW SHOWS!

What a wonderful week it is… the sun is shining, spring is finally here and JHI has exciting news!

Firstly, our Queens announced their return! That’s right – we’re getting our crowns ready for the second coming of SIX THE MUSICAL! Following last year’s sell-out pop-concert musical, SIX returns to the Arts Theatre after the royal procession has passed through Norwich, Cambridge and Edinburgh’s Underbelly!

We’re also excited that today is the final rehearsal for An Ideal Husband before their first preview tomorrow! This is the third instalment in Classic Spring’s Oscar Wilde Season at the Vaudeville Theatre, with performances until July!

Tonight, we look forward to Fane Productions’ Gala Night at The Other Palace, watching the spectacular Kathleen Turner’s new one-woman show, Finding My Voice!

Last, but not least, we are so pleased to reveal that Lonely Planet will be coming to Trafalgar Studios 2 this summer! This funny, moving play about the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s will be running from 12th June to 7th July in the run up to London’s iconic Pride parade.

Olivier Awards 2018

 JHI took to the red carpet on Sunday at the 2018 Olivier Awards, and what a fabulous night it was! The magnificent Hamilton cast opened the show, we got goose bumps from Sheila Atim's performance of 'Tight Connection to My Heart' from Girl from the North Country and we were blown away by the spectacle of 42nd Street’s fantastic cast filling the Royal Albert Hall stage. We were honoured to have worked on three of the shows nominated this year; Mischief Movie Night (Best New Comedy), La Bohéme (Best New Opera Production) and Gangsta Granny (Best Family & Entertainment), and we would like to congratulate all the winners and the nominees for their amazing work.

After the ceremony we headed to the Natural History Museum for the post Olivier's party where we boogied under the whale skeleton and watched a dance-off between the casts of Hamilton and Five Guys Named Moe! It was an amazing location filled with inspiring and talented people.

We would also like to thank SOLT, all who worked on the Olivier Awards plus all the attendees for supporting the Time's Up campaign. Widespread calls to end sexual harassment in theatre dominated the evening and it was incredible to see so many wearing the badge to show their support. The evening was also filled with speeches by presenters and winners hailing a new era of gender and race equality in the industry.

WELCOME

Hurrah! Our website is live!

Seems like JHI is working with a lot of Queens at the moment. Carol Harrison’s All Or Nothing opened in its third London venue, the Ambassadors Theatre, where the Mods turned out on their Scooters and celebrity support came from Brian May and Anita Dobson, John Challis, Len Goodman and Gary Kemp. From the other side of the world, Bernadette Robinson opened her astounding one-woman show Songs for Nobodies at the atmospheric Wilton’s Music Hall to rave four and five star reviews. Mischief is being managed well with The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery both extending their booking periods, and the team is busy creating exciting new assets for the forthcoming birthday celebrations, so look out for those! Classic Spring are in rehearsal for An Ideal Husband which promises to continue the run of Wilde plays at the Vaudeville Theatre, with a week of Guy Chambers’ version of The Selfish Giant taking a week between. The six one-nighters of SIX which triumphed at the Arts Theatre over Christmas will return, so keep your eyes peeled for more information on that.

Things we are proud of this week; marking Jennifer Saunders' return to the stage after 20 years in a record-breaking run for Lady Windermere’s Fan; welcoming Kathleen Turner whose Finding My Voice will play at The Other Palace; opening A Spoonful of Sherman; and the serious pleasure we take in creating assets for The Play That Goes Wrong as well as the opening of The Country Wife at the Southwark Playhouse!
