WOS TV: Thousands Turn Out for West End LiveDate: 24 June 2009
West End Live, the world's largest free theatre festival, took place last weekend in Leicester Square (See Photos, 22 Jun 2009), and in case you weren't one of the thousands who made it along this year, Whatsonstage.com TV editor Ian Miller was there, camera at the ready, to film the action and capture performances from stars including Jerry Springer, Jodie Prenger and Patina Miller.
Compered by Christopher Biggins, this year's event enjoyed clear skies and queues round the block as theatregoers turned out in their droves to get a taster of some of the West End's biggest shows, including Hairspray, Wicked, Been So Long, Dirty Dancing, The King and I, Sister Act, We Will Rock You, Priscilla, Jersey Boys, Chicago, Thriller Live, Too Close to the Sun, Tom Tom Crew, So Jest End and Forbidden Broadway (See News, 19 Jun 2009).
Whatsonstage.com was also there, giving away over £5,000 worth of Radisson Edwardian hotel breaks and offering visitors a 50% discount on annual membership to the Whatsonstage.com Theatre Club.
