A student blog run by drama and theatre students at Royal Holloway, University of London has been given exclusive access to Danny DeVito’s West End debut production.
The theatre blog 'What’s Peen Seen?’ will be going behind the scenes to report on the up-and-coming West End show The Sunshine Boys starring Hollywood star Danny DeVito and British Theatre legend Richard Griffiths.
Neil Simon’s comedy The Sunshine Boys tells the story of the once famous vaudevillian act ‘Lewis and Clark’ in their attempts at a successful revival.
The production will begin previews on April 27, at the Savoy Theatre, before a short 12-week run finishing on July 28.
‘What’s Peen Seen?’ are delighted to have the chance to cover this exciting revival and to be graced with DeVito’s West End debut. Throughout the productions the blog will release exclusive content about the show and offer other exciting opportunities to its readers and subscribers.
This new venture bares evidence to the distance the blog has come and the effort put in by the bloggers since forming in a Royal Holloway Theatre Criticism class in the Autumn term of 2011.
What began as a single students project now has over 15 bloggers covering the vast range of theatre found in and around London.
Founder of the blog Adam ‘Peeny’ Penny said: “This is a brilliant and overwhelmingly exciting opportunity. I am thrilled at how much the blog has grown in such a short period of time and I am really grateful to all the friends and colleagues involved. Hopefully this will be a step on the way to many more great things.”
