Off West End Shows: "Thank you all!"

10479062 874961252538298 7461595344979654003 nClive Nolan: And.... relax! So there we are, a week of Alchemy in the London "off West End'. And what a week it was! Full houses every night, three sell outs and a wonderful and enthusiastic reception from our many audiences. Audiences, which we made up of dedicated followers and just people who came in off the street to see what was going on. Special thanks to the ladies (they saw the show for the first time) who announced to the manager of the theatre that 'Alchemy was even better than 'Les Mis'... That made my week!... On this general subject I would like to thank all the wonderful 'Alchemists' who have stuck with the shows over the last year or two. It is always so good to see those familiar faces in the audience, and your support has been uplifting and heartwarming! To all of you who travelled, whether from another city in England, or from France, Germany, Poland, Holland, Ireland, Wales, Scotland and goodness knows where else... Thank you so much for coming and supporting us, yet again!

A Journey So Far: Director's Perspective

Ian BIan Baldwin (‘Alchemy’ director): Well, today we are packing up the van (as well as quite a few cars), and we are heading to the big smoke to bring ‘Alchemy’ to the capital. The crew and I will be beavering away to set up sound, lights, set and get the performance space at the Jermyn Street Theatre ready to tell the story of Professor Samuel King and his battle against the evil schemes of Lord Henry Jagman in this tale of good versus evil, love versus hate, and life versus death.

It has been an interesting journey so far. A far flung cast, all of whom have other full and varied professional commitments which have made rehearsals an interesting exercise in organisation and planning. I must thank Ross Andrews for faithfully making sure that the working tech script is kept up to date, Sian for making sure that most of the London contingent are at rehearsals on time and of course rehearsals just would not have been possible, or indeed as enjoyable without the amazing and unbounded hospitality of Maggie and Chris Lewis who have made sure that we have been fed, watered (among other fluids), and even housed. There just is not enough space on this web page to thank them properly.
