With more news being released about the new play, there are issues arising among fans who worry they will be missing out on the next adventure in the “Potter” series.
Dolores Umbridge actress Imelda Staunton is no stranger to the stage, having previously starred in such productions as “Into the Woods” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” At the moment, she of course is starring as main character Rose in popular musical “Gypsy”, which had a limited run at the Chichester Festival Theatre late last year and is now currently residing in the West End, London.
It’s an exciting week for “Harry Potter” fans – we’ve got tons of new roles to announce including TWO new Special Guests for MuggleNet Live! 2015: Expo Patronum, a music video starring Snape (who knew he could carry a tune?), another villainous role for a previous Doctor, new clips and trailers, and a look at new art from Diagon Alley artist Michael Curry and his design team. All that and more in this week’s Role Call!
Imelda Staunton is delighted to be reprising one of her acclaimed roles on the West End. See what she had to say about getting ready for a “daunting” role at the Savoy Theatre!
The critically acclaimed play “Good People”, which won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play of the Year when it premiered on Broadway, is now playing in the West End. Imelda Staunton, who plays sharp-tongued single mother Margie, will be part of the “WhatsOnStage” post-show Q& A session on May 1.

Yet this production embraces these contradictions, using them to manipulate its audience and turn a controversial play into a big hit.
