Isolation Interviews: Luke (ThatTheatreGuy)

Next up in our series of Isolation Interviews, we have passionate theatregoers Luke. Luke has also done some follow spotting and assistant stage managing.

Q - What was the first show that you remember seeing?
A - The Lion King at the Lyceum in London!

Q - Whose performances/productions have had the biggest impact on you?
A - Waitress kicked started my re-love for theatre after seeing the show in July 2019 and I’d say Cursed Child because I’m a big Harry Potter fan and seeing the character who I grew up with on stage is just “magical”.

Q - What is your favourite musical movie?
A - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (the Donny Osmond version)

Q - What are your favourite show tunes?
A - Opening Up (Waitress), Everything Changes (Waitress), Screech In (Come From Away), Dead Mom (Beetlejuice) and I’d Rather Be Me (Mean Girls)

Q - Who are your favourite performers?
A - Lucie Jones, Sara Bareilles, Gavin Creel, Renee Rapp and Presley Ryan

Q - What's your favourite theatre memory?
A - Sitting front row and being able to witness Sara Bareilles perform in her own show during her West End debut stint as Jenna, it was something I never thought I’d get to do.

Q - Away from the theatre what are your other favourite hobbies?
A - I love reading (anything fiction or non-fiction), I’m an avid fan of sports too (football, cricket, NFL and Ice Hockey to name a few)

Q - Can you tell us something we might not know about you?
A - I once performed on a West End stage (Her Majesty’s Theatre) but passed out before I could go on for one of the songs

I'd like to thank Luke for this time in answering these questions. If you'd like to follow him please visit his Twitter https://twitter.com/theatre_that
