Gregory Porter Review

International Centre, Harrogate – 11 July 2015

Gregory Porter played a sold out gig to over 2000 people in Harrogate, but his voice is so rich and his manner so personal it was if he had played over 2000 individual gigs, one to each person there.

Porter has it all: the soul of Bill Withers, the smooth class of Nat King Cole and the energy of Sammy Davis Jr, but his finest talent is him and his genuine warmth.  A unique fusion of soul and jazz. Accompanied by of four stunning supporting musicians -Yosuke Sato on alto sax, Chip Crawford at the piano, Aaron James on bass and Emanuel Harrold behind the drum kit, Porter performed a selection of songs from the albums ‘Water’, ‘Be Good’ and ‘Liquid Soul’.  An evocative songwriter, he builds close relationships with listeners, whether poignantly reflecting on his childhood with an inspirational single mother, or facing the fight for racial equality.  The venue clapped together to Liquid Spirit and hearts melted to Hey Laura. Porter’s generosity to his band allowed each to shine as he stepped into the shadows.

His voice is silky , heart rending and smooth .His material is both political , romantic and deeply thoughtful.  When stripped down to just him and piano, Porter’s voice connected with every one in the room.  Such a beautiful smooth voice of molten gold

His minimalist style is the key to the success of this performance. The ethos of every note having a place, and a reason for being played is all too easily misplaced in the quest for technical dexterity- it is wonderful to find a musician so committed to putting the storytelling nature of music to the fore.  The stage was bare. No tour bus nor convoy of trucks outside. Only the International Centre’s bulbs in use. The band set up as if to play an intimate club.

The music and the vocals felt so good throughout a set that was just under 2 hours long long. The vocal power that exudes from Mr. Porter is amazingly charismatic, his voice is emotional, he is humorous with a sexy ‘Southern Charm’. Controlling the band and guiding us to hand clap, he had Harrogate rocking

Porter is a Gospel, Blues, Jazz and Soul singer in one package..who has a gift to share, and celebrate his message of Freedom and love for all…and time generous too.  Meeting and chatting and posing for photo’s with the long line of fans waiting for him.  Still happy to speak more than an hour after the concert had finished

logoNorth Tyneside Council presents
Seaside Special:
& The Middens

Friday 16th October

unnamed (19)

unnamed (20)






It is with great pleasure that we announce a new gig presented by North Tyneside Council. On Friday 16th October the PLAYHOUSE will host punk rock band Penetration and The Middens as a ‘Seaside Special’ event.

Penetration released their first single, the punk classic Don’t Dictate in 1977 on Virgin Records and were an exciting live band respected by both peers and dedicated fans. Their first album Moving Targets was released in1978 to critical acclaim and commercial success as the band had expanded both musically and creatively.

Fast forward to 2015, when Blamire organised a campaign with crowd funding site Pledge Music for the band to record an album, their first in 36 years. The response was overwhelming and the album Resolution, is released in September. John Maher (Buzzcocks, Invisible Girls drummer) has joined the line up and original guitarist Fred Purser has assisted in the recording process and makes a guest appearance on the track Beat Goes On. The album retains the essential

components of Penetration but brings the sound up to date and sees them moving forward.

Penetration are only doing a few live shows this year, so this will be an exclusive gig from a unique band with a long and interesting history playing songs from their new album as well as old favourites.

Local Shields band The Middens will join the line up, known for a superb live show, full of energy, blending punchy rock with a new wave bent, The Middens appeal to a wide demographic. Vive Le Rock have quoted the band as being part of the ‘New Mod’ genre. These four (very!) young and eminently capable lads from North Shields, seem to defy their youthful looks with their mature and vibrant style of New Wave/Mod influenced rock, executed brilliantly with passion and verve.

Additionally, The Middens were approached in January by North Shields FC, to record a cover version of a song originally written in 1926 which was a No1 for Al Jolson. The song Red Red Robin was used as the official ‘Road to Wembley’ song for the club, who incidentally went on to win the FA Vase at the hallowed Wembley Stadium in May 2015.

So with a fantastic line up the first ‘Seaside Special’ at the PLAYHOUSE Whitley Bay with the hilarious Geordie comedian Gavin Webster comparing the event you really will Wish You Were Here…

Tickets are on sale now priced at £15

Tickets are available from the Box Office open Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm, Saturday 10.30am -2.30pm plus until show start on event days. Tickets can also be purchased on the booking hotline 0844 248 1588 or online at www.playhousewhitleybay.co.uk.


Kenneth Branagh. Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company. Credit Johan Persson (5)Further casting for the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s Plays at the Garrick season has been announced. John Dagleish and Zoë Wanamaker are to appear in Harlequinade, with John also joining the company of The Winter’s Tale. The two productions will play in repertory at the Garrick theatre from 17 October 2015 until 16 January 2016.

In addition to playing Dame Maud in Harlequinade, Zoë Wanamaker, one of the best actors of our generation, will also perform Terence Rattigan’s dramatic monologue All On Her Own, which has never before played in the West End. In this brief but powerfully atmospheric play, which will be performed every evening prior to Harlequinade, a woman with a secret, alone at midnight in London has a burden to share that is at times both heart-breaking and sinister. This never-before-seen double bill celebrates the contrast in Rattigan’s astonishing range. Zoё Wanamaker will not appear in The Winter’s Tale.

John Dagleish, who won an Olivier Award this year for his portrayal of Ray Davies in the acclaimed Kinks musical Sunny Afternoon, will appear in Harlequinade and The Winter’s Tale. John joins other cast members Pierre Atri, Jaygann Ayeh, Tom Bateman, Kenneth Branagh, Jessie Buckley, Vera Chok, Jack Colgrave Hirst, Judi Dench, Hadley Fraser, Rudi Goodman, Matthew Hawksley, Pip Jordan, Ansu Kabia, Stuart Neal, Michael Pennington, Zoё Rainey, Miranda Raison, John Shrapnel, Kathryn Wilder and Jimmy Yuill.

Kenneth Branagh said: “Zoë Wanamaker is a brilliant comedienne and a great tragic actress too. In joining us for the Rattigan comedy we seized on the opportunity to let her show us the dramatic side of a playwright also known as ‘the English Chekhov’. The rarely seen All On Her Own provides a fabulous woman’s role, and makes for an intriguingly balanced double bill. John Dagleish’s brilliant musicality was sensational in Sunny Afternoon. I’m very excited to hear what he and our superb composer Patrick Doyle, bring to the music of Shakespeare’s great con man, Autolycus, in The Winter’s Tale.

Patrick Doyle is a Scottish composer. Working together most recently on the 2015 feature film ofCinderella, Doyle is a long-time collaborator of Kenneth Branagh, known for his work composing for films such as Henry VSense and SensibilityHamlet, and Gosford Park, as well as Harry Potter and the Goblet of FireEragonRise of the Planet of the Apes and Thor. Doyle has been nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards, and is the recipient of the ASCAP Henry Mancini Award for “outstanding achievements and contributions to the world of film and television music”.

Kenneth Branagh said: “I’ve been working with Patrick Doyle for nearly 30 years since our first theatrical collaboration on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. His instinct for music in the theatre remains as sharp as his ear for his award winning movie scores. His interplay with both mediums brings melodic power, a sure sense of drama, and exciting musical invention to the Garrick season.”

Zoë Wanamaker, CBE, was most recently seen on the London stage in Stevie at the Hampstead Theatre. The recipient of two Olivier Awards for Best Actress, Zoë has previously starred in the National Theatre productions of The Cherry Orchard, Much Ado About Nothing and The Rose Tattoo, and in the West End, Passion Play and All My Sons. Zoë received Tony Award nominations for her performances inPiafLootElectra, and Awake and Sing on Broadway. Television credits include My Family, Poirot, Doctor Who, and Mr. Selfridge, as well as film roles in Harry Potter, My Week with Marilyn and Wilde.

John Dagleish, recently won an Olivier Award for his performance as Ray Davies in the hit musical Sunny Afternoon, currently playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre. He was last on stage in Out of Joint’s The Mother. Film appearances include The Monuments Men, Snow in Paradise and Age of Heroes. Notable television credits include: Truckers, Lark Rise to Candleford, Beaver Falls, Starlings and Henry V, The Hollow Crown.

The Winter’s Tale, Harlequinade, All On Her Own, The Painkiller, Romeo and Juliet and The Entertainer make up the inaugural season of work for the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company.

Members of the York Theatre Royal youth theatreYork Theatre Royal’s Youth Theatre has been chosen to be part of the Waitrose Community Matters scheme, an initiative to enable branches to support local communities.

The youth theatre is one of three local charities to be supported by the supermarket throughout July.

York Theatre Royal Youth Theatre is one of the biggest in the country, with other 370 young members aged 5-19 in 17 weekly groups. The Waitrose Community Matters donation could fund subsidised places for young people to attend weekly sessions, an artist to come and work on a specific project with a youth theatre group, or a mentor to work alongside a young person with additional needs.

The additional funding will mean that the young people’s experiences are even more exciting and accessible, building on the feedback from our groups that their session is the highlight of their week.

Said Kate Plumb, Youth Theatre Director.

York Theatre Royal Youth Theatre started over ten years ago. It is an Arts Award Centre of Excellence ( Regional Award) 2014, and Arts Award Good Practice Centre 2014-15, with over 200 young people achieving their Arts Award qualification with us over the last 5 years.
