Curtain Call Theatre Podcast
About This Show
Welcome to the shiny new Curtain Call Theatre Podcast. We are the only podcast that will bring you backstage during a show in London and UK theatre. After publishing our inaugural theatre book, "Curtain Call: A Year Backstage in London Theatre", we thought the next logical step would be to get our audio content out there for you - the theatre fan and professional - to hear.

055 - The Two Michaels (C. Hall and Esper)
5 days ago
There have been two American Michaels roaming the streets of the UK over the past few weeks. We last saw them on the stage, but now they have stepped from the boards in front of the cameras proving that it’s not only the bright lights of the theatre scene that are a big draw for Hollywood talent. Michael C Hall and Michael Esper appeared on stage together last year in the musical Lazarus, which played to sold out audiences at the temporary space King’s Cross Theatre. Michael C Hall is busy in Manchester filming Safe for Netflix, and Michael Esper has been spotted in and around London filming the Getty’s family saga, Trust for the FX network. It’s great to see them return to the UK in any capacity, cementing that the UK’s entertainment industry is thriving, and vital to the country. I sat down and talked to both Michael’s about their experience in Lazarus when we visited the show on the anniversary of Bowie’s death, and it was clear that one thing that the musical did was remind us how prolific David Bowie was with his songwriting - and how influential an artist he was to whatever he chose to turn his hand to.
