Mr. Martin

Here are some you might not have heard of or seen. Take a look.

  1. Frankenstein – Written and performed by Edmontons Catalyst Theatre. This was an awe inspiring gothic retelling with great music, acting and sets. Shame there isn’t a full soundtrack or recording.
  2. Kiss me Kate – Oldie with an amazing score, based on the Merchant of Venice
  3. Martin Guerre – Written by the team behind Les Miserables this musical didn’t last long but had an amazing score and songs.
  4. Pirates of Penzance – Not technically a musical but the 80’s re-scored production and film is too bonkers not to include.
  5. Sing Street – Just watched the movie last week! Here is a sneak peak of the musical version that has been postponed before its broadway debut.
