More good news!
So F**king Rock So F*****g Rock is now available to stream on Hulu right here.
Filmed at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre in May 2008 (in front of a glamorous and clearly intelligent audience, gathered from all over the UK) the show includes such favourite songs as Canvas Bags, Inflatable You, Rock n Roll Nerd, If You Really Loved Me, Not Perfect, Darkside and many more! PLUS hilarious talky-bits in-between songs.
This is some vintage Minchin and a chance to hark back to the days our fashion hero wore a long coat and much roomier trousers.
Only the other day we announced that the full-length version of Tim Minchin and the Heritage Orchestra, Live at the Royal Albert Hall was available on Hulu, on the Comedy Dynamics channel. If you’re subscribed, keep an eye on Netflix as the Heritage Orchestra show will be available on there too, from the 15th October.
Get ready to sing along. All together now: I am so F-asterisk-asterisk-asterisk-asterisk-asterisk-g rock… and breathe…

The West End production of Matilda the Musical announced some new cast members yesterday, including a replacement for the terrifying, tyrannical Miss Trunchbull!
Starting in September, Craige Els will take over the role of the formidable headmistress of Crunchem Hall joining existing cast members Haley Flaherty (Miss Honey), Kay Murphy (Mrs Wormwood) and James Clyde (Mr Wormwood).
In addition to the new Trunchbull, Matilda Shapland and Violet Tucker will be joining existing Matildas Tasha Shapple and Lottie Sicilia in the title role, while there will be new additions to the three teams of children that make up Matilda’s classmates too.

The West End run was recently extended until 24th May 2015 and you can grab yourself some tickets from the Matilda the Musical website.
