Here’s one in which both Tom and I took part. The interview is by Shanna Schreuder.
THE comedy musical Buerk! makes its London debut at the Waterloo’s Network Theatre on Thursday, May 2, 2013. Running for three nights, this tongue-in-cheek show about the newsreader Michael Buerk is set to be a hoot.
To find out more about what the show has in store, we caught up with its creators Greg Jameson and Tom Bailey to ask them some hard-hitting questions.
Here’s the piece about me and my show Buerk! The Newsical which appeared in the Bromley News Shopper. It’s a great feature by Sarah Trotter and originally appeared 15th April:
A SWANLEY writer is playing actor, producer and co-scriptwriter for an irreverent but “affectionate” musical charting the alternative life of veteran journalist Michael Buerk.
Buerk! The Newsical is the brainchild of Greg Jameson and Tom Bailey and was co-birthed under alcohol, “fevered imaginations”, and a deep-rooted nostalgia for the 1980s.
The pair re-imagine the BBC’s 80s news icon embroiled in a love-triangle with fellow broadcaster Moira Stewart and the fictionally-scheming weather forecaster Ian McCaskill.
Thanks to IndieLondon and the Bromley News Shopper for plugging my show!
I’m really pleased with these interviews.
Tickets for Buerk! The Newsical are still available for the Friday and Saturday evening – 3rd and 4th May (the bank holiday weekend). Only £10 a pop! What are you waiting for?
I’m delighted to announce that my co-written musical Buerk! The Newsical, a comedy look at the 1980s loosely based on the broadcasting career of Michael Buerk, is returning to the stage in London!
It will be playing at the Network Theatre (immediately next door to Waterloo Station) between 2nd and 4th May.
