It took Michael Portillo little more than 10 years to get a seat in the Commons and then rise in power and esteem to a point where he was a favoured leader of his party and possible future PM. A track record like that suggests to many a privileged friend of the rich and famous with little or no understanding of or care for the ordinary citizen. But since leaving the house almost a decade ago Michael has endeared himself to many with his obvious respect for solid workmanship and creative energy, as found in our great Victorian Railways, and the daily toil of the working man, as well as the underprivileged (Michael becomes a Single Mum) and the troubled (Death of a School Friend ). A historian at heart, listen to his extraordinary story and then feel free to question him about it.
One of the greatest musicals of all time returns to the stage in a magnificent new production to enchant and enthral the young and the young at heart. Award-winning Scottish actor Gray O’Brien joins Bill Kenwright’s spectacular five-star production of The Sound Of Music as Captain von Trapp, in what will mark his musical theatre debut. Gray, who played ruthless businessman Tony Gordon in Coronation Street, will join BBC One’s The Voice runner-up Lucy O’Byrne, who will star as Maria von Trapp, as they visit Wycombe Swan the February. Based on Baroness Maria von Trapp’s 1949 autobiography, this wonderfully lavish new staging of The Sound Of Music tells the true story of the world-famous singing family, from their romantic beginnings and search for happiness, to their thrilling escape to freedom as their beloved Austria becomes part of the Third Reich at the start of WWll. The Sound of Music features some of the world’s most memorable songs, including ‘Edelweiss’, ‘My Favorite Things’, ‘Do-Re-Mi’, ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’, ‘So Long, Farewell’ and of course, the title song, ‘The Sound of Music’.
