Originaltheatreonline.com Just watched the Barnes monologues. A tenner each. The Adrian Scarborough is well worth it both as a bit of a masterclass and because the BBC banned it when Barnes wrote it. The other three are also poignant and interesting. £30 for the four. Lasts 20 mins each one.
I just signed up, and they're promoting Brandreth's new-ish book 'The Oxford Book of Theatrical Anecdotes'. When I've seen him on 'QI', he seems somewhat unstoppable when he gets the bit between his teeth, so I hope he doesn't talk over the other two.

Is he the go to interviewer for older actresses? He was down to do the Bridge Judi Dench interview thing too pre covid. He irritates me too, just seems to think everything he says is wildly entertaining.
The National Arts Club (in New York) has been having a series of free online conversations... Dame Judi Dench was interviewed last Wednesday and Sir Ian McKellan today. The next interview is with author Britt Bennett, but it might be worth checking the website periodically to see if any other theatrical talks are planned: www.nationalartsclub.org/
