The Kathy and Stella double act talk to Editor Sarah Kirkup about the journey of this rip-roaring musical comedy, from the Edinburgh Fringe to the West End

For this Musicals Meets Podcast, Sarah Kirkup meets Bronté Barbé and Rebekah Hinds. The pair are playing the title roles in Kathy and Stella Solve a Murder!, an award-winning musical comedy by Jon Brittain and Matthew Floyd Jones, which opens in the West End at the end of May. They have been involved with the show since its initial workshop back in 2022, taking it to the Edinburgh Fringe later that year and then again in 2023, before touring it to Bristol and Manchester. 

They make a trip to Musicals magazine’s headquarters to chat about the show’s upcoming West End debut, and why 2024 is an exciting year for homegrown, grassroots Musical Theatre.
