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.

052 - Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs...Andrew Higgins
2 days ago
Last weekend saw the return of West End Live to Trafalgar Square. 57 performances over two days (and that’s just the shows!) ensured that the huge audiences were wowed by a brilliant turnout of the West End’s most popular shows including Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Les Mis, Half a Sixpence, Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar and many, many more. However, what was unexpected was the performances from the sign language interpreters at the side of the stage. Andrew Higgins and Jack Flavell came close to stealing the show. As the day went on, more and more people started to appreciate the hard work going into their performances. And yes, if any of you listening saw their performances being tweeted and shared across the social media platforms you will also appreciate just how much energy they were putting into it. A huge hit, and hopefully a mainstay as long as West End Live is around. I got to speak to Andrew about his experience and how he came to be on the stage last weekend. It’s a brilliant story and it’s great to be able to share it here today.
