How stagey are you? Drew McOnie vs Charlotte Wakefield
Two more theatreland favourites go head-to-head to find out who is the stagiest of them all
Drew is fast becoming one of Britain's most sought after emerging choreographers.
He is the artistic director of The McOnie Company and an Associate Artist at The Old Vic and Leicester Curve Theatre.
His recent theatre credits include Bugsy Malone, Oklahoma! and Hairspray.
Bugsy Malone – it's a Drew McOnie show so does that count? 1 [It's brilliant, so yes!]
My phone is all showtunes. I listen to the show that I'm choreographing at the time. At the moment I'm listening a lot to Hairspray 1
This is me getting excited at the first time I have a show on the underground! The 12 year old tourist from Birmingham I once was is extremely excited about it! One life goal done! 1
Jason Robert Brown. It's a huge fear factor of mine, I get worried that I'll drunk call him and start singing songs down the phone at him. 1
All of them. Sasi, Zizi, Summer and Scarlett. I've worked with three out of the four. The one I haven't worked with, Summer, comes to my class on a Monday night.
The stagiest event of all was when three of them brought their father to my class and they were all trying to Skype Scarlett on Broadway from my class because she was gutted she couldn't be there. 2 [Bonus point for stagiest Strallen story ever]

I do actually. On an opening night I don't look at any Good Luck cards until after the show. I save them and read them, probably drunk, on the train home. 1
Meryl Streep. Obviously our Mamma Mia! connection would be a conversation starter.. 1
What do you call a one legged dancer? Eileen. 0 [Groan]
Waking up and thinking ‘I was born to do this!' Joking…not joking! 0
Drew takes the top spot from Jenna Russell in our Stagey League Table with a full house, we expected nothing less from this rising star. We can't wait to see the video of a devised "How Stagey Are You?" champion dance.
