*Fact* The best imaginative ideas come when you are in the shower..
‘Something about the absolute isolation of our morning shower makes an excellent incubator for ideas. Woody Allen is just one famous person who touts the creative benefits of a long, hot shower.’ Take a long hot shower..a masterpiece is born.

The Bridge Theatre by Tower Bridge is such a beautiful space, before you even get in the auditorium!
Cannot recommend going to see Alan Bennett’s Alleluia enough- it is the play our NHS needs you to see. It packs an emotional and political punch and yet the laughs kept coming. Marvellous @_bridgetheatre

Hidden underneath the stage, the orhchestra pit is home to the talented musicians who make up the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. Founded in 1946, the orchestra plays for nearly all performances given by The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet on the main stage of the Royal Opera House. Pictured here is Project Team Manager Jean-Paul Percox ensuring the stage is ready between a rehearsal and performance.
Throw back to last week's Musical Puppet Theatre Summer School. Participants made their own puppets and devised their own show with our in-house professional puppeteer and musical director, finishing with a final performance on the main stage! What a talented bunch they were. 📸 @craigfullerphotography
Sir @ianmckellen made headlines last week for staging an impromptu Q&A when a matinee performance of King Lear was cancelled due to his injured leg. So we thought we would delve into the archives to find some pictures of the actor's many legendary stage appearances.
Let's start with Hamlet - 1971. Sir Ian tackled the Dane aged 31, in a production directed by his previous collaborator Robert Chetwyn. It was an acclaimed interpretation that inspired one critic to write that it elevated him to the "Shakespearean acting elite".

WHO WILL BE THE NEXT STRAT? - NEWS
We gave you the news about Andrew Polec leaving Bat out of hell. Jordan Luke Gage will be taking on the lead role of Strat from 3 September.
Gage made his West End debut as Hoffman in the show, whilst also performing as an alternate Strat to Andrew Polec.
Gage commented on taking on the role: "I'm overwhelmed to be taking over the iconic role of Strat in Bat Out Of Hell. Being part of this incredible show and company has been a life-changing experience for me and I have learned so much from working with the extraordinary talent that is Andrew Polec. I want to thank everyone at Bat out of Hell for giving me this opportunity and to thank Andrew for his support and friendship. He has been an outstanding Strat, a deserved winner of the Joe Allen Best West End Debut Award and an inspiration. I wish him love and every success on his journey. I'm so excited to get started! I feel honoured and humbled to be given the chance to sing Jim Steinman and Meatloaf's stunning score and to work with the wonderful people who make up the Bat family; the company, the production and creative teams, the crew and, of course, the fans. Rock and Roll dreams DO come true!" Simon Gordon who performs as Esquivel in the show will continue to be the alternate Strat.
Had the most GLORIOUS time last night thank you so so much to everyone that came and all my amazingly talented friends that performed. This is a little clip from after the show finished when it turned into a bit of a free for all, Audrey takes on Audrey II 😬🌱
Pretty as a picture on the site of The Theatre, the first actual theatre, 1576 in Shoreditch, which back then literally meant ‘Sewer ditch’ or shithole. Now looking resplendent with hand painted flowers 💐
