CORRIE musical will go on, says producer Trish Ward
The CORONATION STREET musical "Street of Dreams" is turning into a soap opera all of its own. First they changed the dates upsetting fans who had bought tickets, travel and hotel rooms. Then it was panned with terrible reviews. Then it was postponed. Then national treasure Paul O'Grady slammed the musical's producers for not paying staff. Then sources went to the tabloids to report on the "chaos and farce" behind the scenes.

And now? Well, now the musical's composer Trisha Ward has told The Stage that the musical will resume its tour this year, claiming the production is set to be “a box office hit”. She claims that an announcement would be made about the show’s future within four weeks and that she was confident everyone involved would be paid.

Alice Cooper on his DARK SHADOWS role
"It is one of those things where if you remember Dark Shadows from when it was a soap opera on television, it was the strangest hit of the time. In the 70’s, think of it, everything was like GENERAL HOSPITAL and ALL MY CHILDREN. It was the same plot formula every single night. All of a sudden there was a sister that came out of nowhere, the niece gets pregnant and all of that. All the same things happened in DARK SHADOWS except they were vampires and they were in the 18th Century."
