West End Wilma is set to host a new monthly, Sunday afternoon chat show, with some of the West End’s finest talents, raising money for The National Autistic Society, specifically to help stage more Relaxed Performances of Theatre productions.
West End Wilma In Conversation With … will take place at London’s Crazy Coqs on Sunday afternoons once a month, beginning on Sunday 16 June 2019. The hour long show will see us talk to one leading theatre performer each month about their life and career in front of an intimate setting of just eighty seats. There will also be an audience Q&A where people can have the opportunity to ask their idol their burning questions.
For the first instalment on Sunday 16 June, Wilma will be joined by leading lady, Emma Hatton. Emma comes to Crazy Coqs straight after finishing supporting Jools Holland on tour, and before she jumps in to rehearsals to play ‘Grizabella’ in Cats. Emma will chat about her career which has included starring roles in Wicked, Evita, We Will Rock You and much more.
On Sunday 21 July, Wilma will be joined by soul singing superstar, Beverley Knight. Beverley comes to chat ahead of her 10-date UK tour celebrating the songs of Stevie Wonder. Beverley has had huge success in the West End with starring roles in The Bodyguard, Memphis and Cats.
On Sunday 18 August, Rachel Tucker joins Wilma to talk about her incredible theatre career, from playing ‘Elphaba’ in Wicked on Broadway and the West End, We Will Rock You and her current role in the award-winning hit musical, Come From Away.
On Sunday 22 September, Wilma invites Luke Bayer to chat, hot off the heels of appearing as the ‘alternate Jamie’ in the smash hit, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. Luke was shortlisted for a ‘Rising Star’ West End Wilma Award in 2018.
