Cast from our Christmas Show were involved in a photoshoot at the newly re-named Grand Central Hotel on Monday which is in the process of being renovated back to its former glory in a £20 million refurbishment by hoteliers Principal Hayley. Cinderella and the Ugly Sisters searched for their Prince but it was the builders currently working on the stunning ballroom who got the first dance!
An iconic city centre landmark fondly remembered by Glaswegians, the hotel was keen to partner an iconic Glasgow theatre company and we were delighted to be invited along.
The hotel, when it re-opens next September, will have 240 fully refurbished bedrooms, 21 meeting rooms, a lavish champagne bar overlooking Central Station’s concourse and a new bar, restaurant and deli which will be located on Hope Street next to the entrance to Central Station.
Dating back to 1883, the Grand Central Hotel has an illustrious history of attracting high profile guests including Cary Grant, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Laurel and Hardy, the Queen, Sir Winston Churchill and John F Kennedy.
Cinderella runs until Sat 2 January - book tickets now.

A reminder of some...not all of our shows this year.
We haven't included visiting work as the list would be massive, this is just the work that emanates from the Citizens Theatre...and just so you know Yellow Moon toured schools and internationally, so you won't have caught it at the Citz. The Sound of My Voice played at Assembly throughout the festival and I've not included This View of Life, as it wasn't on sale to the public.
As you can see this is still a huge list. As well as main stage and touring productions from the Citizens Company, it includes plays by TAG, Citizens Community Company and Young Co..
We'd also love to hear your favourite Citz memories of the year. Was it the audience reaction to the gun shot in Topdog/Underdog, the feeling of entering the foyer for Cinderella, the glamour of Bernarda Alba, the feeling of performing in Nightschool or the big back wall reveal in Museum of Dreams?
We'd love to hear from you.

Fellowship's are awarded in recognition of contribution to the RSAMD, and beyond that, to the cultural and educational environment of Glasgow and Scotland.
Anna has over 30 years experience of working in the arts, from her early days working as a Company Stage Manager and General Manager, to her years with the Scottish Arts Council and Arts Council of England. She has worked at the Citizens Theatre for almost 10 years.
Some Citizens staff joined Anna for the evening (...and thought they should apologise for eating so many canapes!).

The Herald 4 stars
The Times 4 stars
The Scotsman 4 stars
The Guardian 3 stars
"It's surely the mark of a good play that you are still mining meaning from it days later....Two fine performances" The Times
"Directed with memorable intensity by Citizens Trainee Director Leann O'Kasi, and breathtakingly well performed by Tyronne Lewis and Nicholas Pinnock...some great rap-style poetic writing" The Scotsman
"the tale is grippingly told...a vivid portrait of hope against the odds" The Guardian

“Jude Akuwudike has a powerful physical presence as Othello, especially as jealousy reduces him to a feral despair.”
“Guy Hollands’ direction is deeply reverent to Shakespeare’s text... This is solid Shakespeare.”
“The supporting cast are strong and Philip Cairns lends Cassio an appropriately innocent charm.”
"Andy Clark’s Iago is potently charismatic and disarmingly jocular… he delivers his lines with a frighteningly assured tone that calls to mind Robert Carlyle’s Begbie in Trainspotting."
“The modernisation works well…Making a 400-year-old play feel fresh is no small task. The company has managed to do so without falling into the trap of the ultra-modern.”
You can see more pictures from Othello here and some absolutely gorgeous original costume designs (by Philip Witcomb) here.

“It’s not hard to see why Parks’s play…scooped the Pulitzer Prize for drama. The chewy poetic dialogue rolls its way into life with a vivid ferocity.”
“Nicholas Pinnock and Tyronne Lewis bounce off each other with a relentlessly disciplined dynamism.”
"The two actors portray a damaged relationship that is completely engrossing."
A Twitter user said "Topdog Underdog @citizenstheatre is smart as a whip. Not to be missed."

Announced at a ceremony hosted at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh, the Awards are held each year to celebrate the most outstanding and creative partnerships between business and arts organisations. This year the awards were presented by Michael Russell, Minister for Culture, External Affairs and the Constitution.
The Citizens Theatre and ScottishPower were also commended in the Community Award category, for the project Outspoken - an innovative piece of drama that explored the reality of stammering and the impact on the lives of young people who stammer.
The award is proudly displayed in our foyer - look out for it next time you're in!

In June I was coming to the end of my third year at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and I heard that the Citizens was looking for a graduating drama school student to work at the theatre for twelve months. I applied as soon as I heard, and after a couple of auditions (one in London, and one up here) I was offered the job. I was (and still am) over the moon to be given this opportunity, and after moving all my belongings back up to Scotland, and settling into my sister's flat, I am now at the end of my second week at the theatre.
I can't believe I've been here for a fortnight already, the time has flown by. In my first week I watched the Young Company rehearse for the Rosey Project, which I understand went down extremely well when they performed it last week at Hampden. I've also seen rehearsals for Lend Me Your Ears, which I loved being part of, and really can't wait to meet the rest of the cast next week.
As I'll be playing Bianca in Othello, and one of the step sisters in Cinderella, I was invited to a couple of the production meetings. It has really struck me how much work goes into the shows before the actors even have their first read through, how much careful planning goes on, and how hard everyone has to work together to ensure everything runs smoothly.
I've just had a call from Elaine in Wardrobe about measurements , so I'm going to have to nip up and see her now, will write again once rehearsals have begun for Othello...
Cheers, Mairi x

August… one month, two awards and seven 4 and 5 star reviews - not bad going!
On Sunday our
This followed hot on the heels of Michele Gallagher picking up a Little Devil at the previous weekend's The Herald Angels award ceremony, awarded for demonstrating the true spirit of the old adage 'the show must go on' when she stepped into the role only six days before the show previewed! (Read her blog below).
Michele and Billy at the Angels' ceremony.
During the run we were delighted to receive a gaggle of 5 star reviews from Three Weeks, Onstage Scotland and the British Theatre Guide as well as 4 star reviews from Edinburgh Guide, AlltheFestivals, Fest and The List.
The cast and crew have all had a fantastic time and are now enjoying a well earned rest. Thankyou to everyone who came along to support us through in ‘the other city' - if you saw the show we'd really love to know what you thought, to tell us just click here.

“August 2009, I had planned to paint my spare room, sort out my taxes, catch up with friends and maybe cycle around Millport (I've always wanted to do that!). Performing in the Citizens Theatre's production of 'The Sound of My Voice' at The Assembly Rooms as part of this years Edinburgh Fringe was not on my agenda. Yet here I am!
On the 31st of July, my painting plans where shelved when my agent called, 'What time can you be at The Citz?'
'Eh, can you give me an hour?.' By 1 o'clock, I'm with Jeremy Raison, the director, reading from his adaptation of Ron Butlin's brilliant novel. By 2 o'clock Jeremy had offered me the part, by 3 I was handed a script, introduced to my other cast member, the wonderful Billy Mack, and the countdown began.
'The Sound of My Voice' had a very successful run last year at The Citizens Theatre. Unfortunately, the original actress had to leave the production, but in true showbiz style, 'the show must go on' and so did I.
The rehearsal process was....quick! Usually, you have three weeks to get to know your fellow cast members, create characters and learn lines. All the while the nerves and excitement build as you approach opening night. I had 5 days, there was no time for nerves.
The piece is based on an alcoholic business executive played by Billy and the complex and strained relationships he has with the people in his life. These characters, all of which I play, range from an innocent 5 year old girl to a 'gallus' 45 year old business man with many more popping up along the way.
For the few days leading up to the Fringe, I lived and breathed the script. Tearing my eyes away only to eat or sleep. My poor boyfriend patiently read each scene with me over and over again, until the characters began to find their voice and the words were committed to memory.
Now, one week into our run and those first frantic days seem like a distant memory. I am finally performing in a Citizens Theatre production, (something I have longed to do since my ushering days there, while at drama school) in an amazing play, which is part of one of the biggest and best festivals in the world and I am having the time of my life. The spare room can wait!
September 2009, Millport anyone??

Our show, The Sound of My Voice got a good mention amongst other theatre productions in the opening speech. There was no theatre in the launch programme, as this doesn't really lend itself to the format of the evening. Although slightly disappointing, I can totally see why, as it'd be hard to find a scene that worked.
The revellers outside Assembly on the Mound last night.
My favourite performances of the night were from Tao, The Soweto Gospel Choir and event host Jason Byrne, who was utterly hilarious. I've even been inspired to buy a ticket for his show.
Thanks to Jayne and all the team at Assembly for a brilliant night!
Alison and Cat headed back through this morning to meet our street team, Fin and Maria, who will be braving the busy/tram obstructed streets of the capital to let folk know about the show. Please say hi if you see them.
Our first preview kicks off at 3.20pm today. A crew from the theatre are heading through tomorrow to provide support. Good to luck to everyone, can't wait to see it again!
P.S. We have just added brand new functionality to the site, which allows you to add your rating and comments to each show, so please let us know your thoughts.

"I found out I got the job at the Citz one sunny Monday evening back in August 2008. A few rain storms and a week later I had moved to Glasgow and was working at the theatre on the first production of that season!
"I’ve been faced with so many different challenges that have thrown me head first into the deep end (and I can’t actually swim) but thankfully I’ve always surfaced feeling more at ease and theatrically energised. Highlights have been seeing the Circle Studio transformed into an 80s -esque underground night club for Citizen Y, being blown away by the pure visual spectacle that was Don Juan and crying like a baby at the end of the first act of the Wizard of Oz.
"But of course it’s seeing my own work being performed that has given me that extra bit of satisfaction."(Ed note: Leann adapted and directed her own version of Hans Christian Anderson's The Red Shoes in May).
"I’m really looking forward to coming back to direct Suzan Lori-Park’s Pulitzer Prize winning Topdog/Underdog this autumn. Even though it transports us to a seedily furnished room in New York it could be set in many living rooms throughout the world.
"I hope the next Trainee Director enjoys this experience as much as I did and makes it their own. As for me, I’m so excited about the next phase in my development and the endless possibilities that the Citz has opened up to me."
Thanks Leann - we've really enjoyed having you here at the Citizens as part of our team!

'Jason Southgate's picture-perfect drawing room set, naturalistic lighting and period costumes lure us into a false sense of security, but we are quickly jolted out of our complacency by the intensity of the play, whose bleak conclusions still have the power to unsettle.
...the energy with which the cast attack their roles is infectious. There's a strong turn from Billy Mack as Engstrand... but it is from the intense central relationship between Mrs Alving and her son Oswald that this production derives its power. Maureen Beattie and Steven Robertson are compelling in those roles, the partnership deelivering a conclusion that is as moving as it is harrowing.' THE LIST ****
'In the opening stages of Raison's production (which enjoys a splendid, lively translation by Amelia Bullmore and a beautifully naturalistic set by Jason Southgate), the sense of lethargy is almost irritating. It is, however, entirely in keeping with Ibsen's intent, all the better for the cataclysm to come.
'Maureen Beattie is magnificent. Her Mrs Alving turns from respectable stoic to awesome truth teller, pulling down the entire Alving family myth as if she were some great, female Samson. Her nuanced, emotionally explosive playing never overshadows the other actors. Rather, Beattie's acting enhances the contributions of a universally fine cast; Kevin McMonagle is perfect as the appalled and outraged priest, whilst Elspeth Brodie impresses as the coquettish and indignant Regine.' SUNDAY HERALD ****
Thursday, 21 May 2009
'Jeremy Raison's production of Ghosts for the Citizens Theatre... treats the play not as a sombre slide into tragedy but as a fierce comic satire against the prudery, misogyny and hyposcrisy of provincial Norwegian life.
'Raison's irreverant approach to the play... generates a fierce and questioning energy, not least through Maureen Beattie's towering performance as Mrs Alving, a woman still bursting with inconvenient sensual life and intellectual restlessness. Jason Southgate's set... beautifully lit by Charles Balfour to conjure up fierce Nordic alrterations between radiant sunlight and rain-drenched gloom; Elspeth Brodie and Steven Roertson light up the stage, as the young people so closely bound together.'

They all did it with love, with theatre love. Love was in the air during the rehearsal time. The group felt like they had been working together for a long time. Dear Neil, Elly and I were surprised. Are you Dancin'? and The Rollerettes scenes were the first ones to try in front of the journalists under the flash lights. These people had never met and rehearsed before but they played those scenes perfectly at their first try. I remember the night when my inspiration angels woke me up and came with this idea. How could it be to play in the same production with Glaswegian and Swedish actors on the same stage? I told my crazy idea to Tomas and Neil. They are crazy like me and said yes! Different languages, different countries… The actors will rehearse away from eachother and then will meet and do all the work just in 3 days. Thanks Dear Neil, Elly and all friends in Citizens Theatre and 14* Teater Projekt of Länsteatern!
All of us have had the most exciting theatre experience in our life. We did a great performance that I still get feedbacks and compliments. We saw and showed how “Theatre Love” can connect the people in the world. We are looking forward to meet you for our second adventure in Glasgow at Citizens Theatre soon. Thanks for being here and sharing this adventure with us, see you very soon …

Kathleen Harrison's 'Reer Fleer' set the show up nicely and the Swedish cast found their way around the Glasgow dialect. Marianne was charming in our Rena's 'Looking Back', referring to the Dennistoun Palais as if she'd danced there herself . Fran sang her heart out for the loss of her wee Shuggie McGlone. 'On the Spot' came has a big surprise when a young African man got up out of the audience and proposed to another audience member in Swedish. 'Elvis in Ladies' was a triumph...as always. The totally Swedish creation was hysterical...even to us, who only grasped a couple of words! Theresa's poem had more 'Shadowy Depths' than ever before and we all raised our tarten scarves 'as we sang shang a lang with the gang'...then we had some party and bid our fond farewells.
It was a privilege to be part of this collaboration between the two community companies, rehearsing independently, thousands of miles apart and somehow coming together to create this unique performance in three and a half days. Certainly an experience I'll never forget and I don't think the others will either.
We can't wait for our international friends to arrive for even more adventures...
Friday, 1 May 2009
We are right in the middle of our final day of rehearsals in Länsteatern, working on It Must Be Love, an accordion is being played in the background by Alena, along with Björn and Anna Körin on guitar. There is a wonderful spirit of friendship and collaboration in the room. The Community Company from the Citizens are totally embracing the opportunity, there have been so many adventures and now we are building to our ultimate moment of this marvellous experience with the sold out performance tomorrow at 4pm. Let's hope there will be fireworks like we saw last night in front of the castle to celebrate spring.
It was Patricia's birthday yesterday and she was overwhelmed by the group singing, flowers and cake, it was an amazing moment, one I'm sure she will never forget along with the rest.
We have now moved onto to rehearsing Looking Back, a scene written by the senior member of our company Rena Hood, if only she could be here to see Marianne perform it, but then I also want Catherine Chan and Theresa to see their pieces performed in Swedish!
It will be so sad when our journey comes to an end here in Örebro, we have all been treated so well...Oh I have to go and organise lunch, it is a public holiday celebrating May Day and everything is closed but the sun is out so who cares.

Although practitioners from the Citizens and Lansteatern have worked together before, this is the first time our company members have had the chance to travel.

I'll not say much more, as I'll let Neil and Elly update you...if Neil can ever find his Blogger password!!
P.S. The Swedish word "Bra" pronounced "Braw" has pretty much the same meaning as our Scottish word, hence the name of our project. I recently watch "Let The Right One It" - a Swedish horror currently in cinemas, which I can't recommend highly enough. I was delighted to hear the little boy at one point say "bra" and the subtitle appear "good". The simple pleasures...
P.P.S. The observant of you will have spotted that the photo in this post changed. Neil pointed out that I'd used a Stockholm shot! Oops

"It is genuinely extraordinary acting in that I truly never saw it as acting, just as I never saw any of her movements or handling of props as business, simply as Spoonface’s behaviour. In fact, as someone commented on the way out, there weren’t any props, just things lying around Spoonface’s bedroom.
"See this moving, funny, sad yet optimistic production if you can. You’ll not regret an hour spent with Spoonface and her self-effacing alter ego Zoe Thorne." THE STAGE
"It is therefore a measure of Zoe Thorne’s performance in the title role (and for most of the time she’s the only person on stage) that she not only holds the audience’s attention throughout but involves it fully in her character’s odd world. She’s entirely credible as this very young girl with a brain for which her body is not fit... As with autism itself, there are no real answers, partial or otherwise. But there is a heart in the matter, and Thorne’s performance is it." WhatsOnStage.com ****
"Zoe held us enthralled - we hung on every word. Funny, sad and thought provoking...a gift to anyone who is lucky enough to experience this and take away something of it in their hearts." Wikipedia

Beggars and Kings productions are bringing the show to the Citizens this April and we grabbed a quick word with the director, Michael Fentiman, to find out what he thinks is so important about this play:
“Awareness of Autism having the possibility to be an active ability as opposed to a life hindering disability is very important to us. For any parent, teacher or family member who is involved in the life of a child with autism there are everyday challenges and rewards that a child on the spectrum can present. This production aims to explore both. I suppose what Spoonface’s autism empowers the audience with is an ability to see our responses to the hardship life throws at us. Autism is a world of logic. The world we live in is one of many contradictions, confusion and chaos. Spoonface, through a piercing ability to strip emotion and metaphor away, stumbles upon a genius’s insight into life’s struggles. Her ability is to help us see clearly, her Autism being a gift of perception that illuminates hidden truths in things.”
Spoonface Steinberg runs from Tues 21 - Sat 25 April, 7.30pm. To book call 0141 429 0022 or go online at www.citz.co.uk

Performed by a nimble quartet led by Simon Kunz's mesmeric Gant...the play oozes dark imagination. Neilson holds up a fairground mirror that reveals the sadness and ugliness, the unlovely, fearful inner self that each of us struggles to keep hidden... it's uncannily hard to look away. The Times ***
Imagine Shockheaded Peter crossed with a Carry On film, and you have something of the flavour of this 90-minute show.... Beautifully designed by Tom Scutt to look like a magical pop-up Victorian theatre, Steve Marmion's production is full of gusto... The Guardian ***
