|... November/December2005 News
Pinocchio has opened to rave reviews and well deserved, as those out there lucky enough to have seen it already, will attest to I'm sure. Will is having tremendous fun with his greasy, grimey evil Stromboli and says it's a role that has again helped to stretch him as a performer. The Pinocchio page is now up and hopefully a bit more to be added to it during the run.
As for Will's next adventure....I'll have the scoop for you just after the new year begins. So hang tight.
At long last my interview with the brilliant Lez Brotherston is up for reading. The man is just amazing and yes, I do remain in awe of him.
I wish everyone a very happy holiday season.
Pinocchio opens this Friday and Roy Tan gives us a little sneak peek. Be sure to check back on the link because he will be adding more images in the next couple days. Thanks Roy!
Pinocchio page has been added to this site as well and when I get back from London I will start to fill it up with goodies. Site will not be updated, probably until just before Christmas, so stay tuned.
To Will and his mates - have a wonderful adventure. Three cheers for the bad guy!
The ROH2 has loaded an absolutely fantastic behind-the-scenes video clip from Pinocchio on their site. Lots of our Will and extensive interview with Director/Choreographer Will Tuckett, which goes far in outlining his version of this classic fairy tale. Quick Time 7 is required - free download on the site. Very cool clip. (Thanks Lora)
Terrific news. Pinocchio will be filmed for broadcast on BBC on 08 January. Time and channel to be advised at a later date. How 'bout that?
The sinister Stromboli....super-sized. (Thanks Mandy)
Finally a sneak peek at our evil puppetmaster....
After a tip from a visitor to the site (thank you Andrew!), I was able to confirm that Pinocchio will be headed on on a mini-UK tour after its run at the Linbury Studio Theatre:
Theatre Royal, Norwich
18 - 21 January (6 shows)
Quay Theatre, The Lowry Centre, Salford, Manchester
24 - 28 January (7 shows)
Coronation Hall, Ulverston, Cumbria
9 - 11 February (5 shows)
Will is on tour with the show but no performance schedule has been released just yet.
Will's Pinocchio mate and fellow Swoon Hall of Famer Matthew Hart is featured along with Scottish Ballet dancer Paul Liburd in a beautiful photo to be sold in conjunction with a fund raiser for Crusaid, which hopes to raise awareness for World Aids Day on December 1st. Thanks Mandy.
Check your tickets or get to buying them. Cast performance dates are up on the ROH2 website. But still no photo of our guy. GRRRRR!
