A lot of nice photos, videos and clips became available after this morning’s Martin’s apperance in BBC Radio 2 “The Chris Evans Breakfast show” in which both Martin and Tamsin Greig – his co-star in Labour of Love – talked about the play and enjoyed a live performance by The Fizz which included some dancing.
Some photos came from Social Media, click on the photos to access larger versions:
Even a lucky fan:
Then there were some uploads from the programme’s website featuring Martin and Tamsin, click on the photos to go to the Gallery and find larger versions:
There are several clips from the show. You can listen and watch them here. If you want to listen to the entire show (Martin and Tamsin appears during the last hour aproximately, i’d say 8:30 am considering the show starts at 6:30), you can do so from the BBC website here but only for 29 days. There’s no country restrictions for this. But we’ve uploaded the entire audio here (important: 420mb m4a file).
As if that’s NOT enough, a band called The Fizz played some songs during the show and for their last performance they played their own cover of DNCE’s Cake By The Ocean. Luckily, this performance during the show has a video and you can watch them on the BBC website here, or you can also download the video if you want (we’ve uploaded it for you, it’s an HQ 37mb mp4 file). But I’m sure you want a little preview, don’t you?
Last but definitely not least, we have some UHQ photos of Martin arriving and leaving BBC’s studios at Wogan House. We’ll make a separe post for that later! So watch this space!
As you probably know by now, when Labour of Love was announced they said that they were going to be offering 20000 tickets at £10, sponsored by more expensive tickets (that range from £40ish, £60is and £90ish). They probably – as it usually happens in plays – they didn’t released all of them at once and today they are announcing that more £10 tickets are available to be purchased. So if you were having doubts, go ahead and try to get yours now!
Tomorrow, Friday 22nd September, Martin and Tamsin – the two stars of Labour of Love – will be on BBC Radio 2 tomorrow at The Chris Evans Breakfast Show which airs from 6:30 to 9:30, discussing the new play that is less than a week from opening the previews. You can listen to it live on BBC Radio 2 website. Or you can catch it later from the programme’s website (linked before). We will be publishing the clip as soon as posible after it’s available.
The play is closer each day. Michael Grandage Company – one of the companies behind Labour of Love – published some stories showing the signs already up at the Noël Coward Theatre. EXCITING.
According to Yolanda Ramke, writer of Cargo, the tickets for the premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival are sold out!
If you’re in Adelaide and you’re interested, there are still some tickets left for the second screening and Q&A session on October 7th. You can buy them here.
Today WhatsOnStage – a leading online publication of all things theatre – published some exclusive photos of rehearsals for Labour of Love taken at Jerwood Studio. The photos were taken by Marc Brenner – who also took the photos for Martin’s Richard III. Even though they are not HQ, we’ve uploaded them to our gallery to share with all of you, click on the photo to view the rest.
Yesterday (Monday 18th) the people behind Startup announced that the first 3 episodes are available for owners of Amazon Fire tablets or Amazon Fire TV. Needless to say this is a preview before the long awaited season 2 that is set to premiere free on Crackle’s platform.
However, a very kind Martin fan (Amanda from 88thparallel.tumblr.com) has access to Amazon Fire TV and generously allowed us to share with you some screen captures of Martin’s scenes from these first episodes and they are already in our gallery which you can access from the link above or clicking any of the selected photos we are showing below.
