This episode comes from a very hot dressing room at the Gielgud Theatre occupied by our host Andrew Keates and his special guest Mr. Fra Fee. Fra is currently appearing in The Ferryman and many will know him from both the West End and movie versions of Les Miserables as well as productions of Candide, A Winter’s Tale, Follies, A Man of No Importance, Wind in the Willows and many others.
Together they discuss Fra’s life and career as well as getting on the Show People soapbox to discuss if Musical Theatre performers experience prejudice when they perform in projects other than musicals, Andrew get’s his theatrical tips out for things to see and do this September 2017, there’s music from undiscovered composer Gavin Brock with a track called ‘In The Life Of a Nerd’ performed by Bradley Riches from Terror in the Sweet Shop and Fra has the occasional breakdown due to some Show People challenges and background music.
