Oliver Tompsett talks to Edward Seckerson as he is preparing to launch a new show – Wild About You

Edward Seckerson meets Oliver Tompsett at London’s Wonderville Bar & Café to chat over his ongoing journey from The Who’s Tommy (title role) at Arts Ed and a veritable portfolio of rock/pop shows – Our House, Rock of Ages, We Will Rock You – to more legit fare like Fiyero in Wicked and his winning turn as Will Shakespeare in & Juliet. As we speak, he is preparing to launch a new show Wild About You (with a score by Broadway’s Carole King, Chilina Kennedy) at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, with a jaw-dropping cast including Eric McCormack and Rachel Tucker.

Wild About You is at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London, on 25 & 26 March 2024 – visit
