Helen George: the star of TV’s Call the Midwife on returning to her musical roots | The journey of cult musical Hadestown as it debuts in the West End

In the February/March issue of Musicals we speak to Call the Midwife star Helen George about her storied career to date which now sees her return to her first love, Musical Theatre, as she stars in The King and I on tour and then at London’s Dominion Theatre.

Also, come with us as we delve into the underworld with Hadestown, the Blues- and Dixie-land infused musical retelling of Orpheus and Euridice which has taken over the world and now comes to the Lyric Theatre in February. We meet the cast and creatives, and ask how the sound of the modern musical is diversifying for the better.

We interview the cast and creatives of Sheffield-born hit musical Standing at the Sky’s Edge as the show prepares for its West End debut. How has Richard Hawley and Chris Bush’s creation helped redefine Musical Theatre?

We talk to Emily Benjamin ahead of starring in Bronco Billy – The Musical in January. We explore her journey from being a swing on Cabaret to originating the lead role in this brand-new show.

Elaine Paige returns to our pages with her regular column celebrating the musicals that proved to be the biggest game-changers – this issue, it’s Sondheim’s Follies.

Pacific Overtures, The Witches and Evita are included in our UK live show reviews, plus don’t miss our reviews from Broadway – Spamalot, Hell’s Kitchen, Swept Away and more.

Two new albums from Barbra Streisand – Yentl and ’Evergreens’, a Spanish recording of Godspell and the Broadway cast recording of Merrily We Roll Along are included in our expert recording reviews.
