Antony Costa Interview Save The Last Dance

Antony Costa Interview 
Save The Last Dance

Antony Costa is currently touring the UK playing Milton in Save The Last Dance and the show arrives at The New Theatre on Monday July 25th until Saturday July 30th.

W&W: Hi Antony, hope your well, how's the show going?

Antony: Really really well, having a great time, very much looking forward to performing in Cardiff. We played Swansea last week and the audience was fantastic so we are hoping the Cardiff audiences will be the same. 

W&W: I'm sure they will be. Tell us about your role in the show.

Antony: I love it, I get to sing songs like Viva Las Vegas, 123 & Save The Last Dance. It's a great show that really captures the early 60's, it's very nostalgic with some great songs.

W&W: You've made a successful transition from pop star to actor and received great reviews from your Westend performance in Blood Brothers.

Antony: I love it, acting is my first love  it's what I done first and it's a great challenge for me to do something other than what I'm best known for like being in the band. I would like to do more straight acting maybe some TV, whatever comes my way but most definitely want to do more acting.

W&W: I suppose the great thing about being in a band like Blue is you can dip in and out.

Antony: Absolutely, we get together do a few shows then go off and do our own thing. We are all getting older and Ofcourse want to try different things but it's great when I get back with the boys to perform as Blue.

W&W: So your travelling all over the UK with the show, do you find audiences differ from city to city.

Antony: Oh yes, when we was in Glasgow it was like a pop concert at the end and it was the same in Liverpool, the audiences was having a great time up & dancing. Then we go to other cities and the crowd is more reserved but still enjoying themselves, it's great, keeps us on our toes. I'm hoping Cardiff are ready for a great night. 

W&W: Your always on the road do you find it hard being away from the family?

Antony: It can be tough at times, luckily there's things like Skype & FaceTime, my little girl thinks I live in the phone. When I see her on my days off she can't quite believe that I'm real. It's dad from the phone haha.

W&W: So what's next for you after this?

Antony: The show wraps in October then hopefully go on holiday for a few weeks and straight back to do panto in Gravesend. 

W&W: Busy times ahead.

Antony: Yes and very much looking forward to performing in Cardiff, I've played Cardiff many times with Blue and the Welsh are always lively and up for a great night. 

Save The Last Dance is brought to you by the team that brought you Dreamcoats & Petticoats and is jam packed with all the hits from the early 60's.

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at The Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot

Big, Brash and Beautiful and that's just the bus!
The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.  The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the s…

Mamma Mia! | Wales Millennium Centre

This glorious ABBA musical is so much fun, your cheeks will ache from smiling for two hours. The cast are superb and genuinely look like they are having the time of their lives belting out those ABBA classics. Mamma Mia is now in its 18th year and shows no sign of slowing down, constantly playing to sell out crowds in the West End and on its UK tour. The reason for its success is down to the songs, when Benny and Bjorn penned those classic tunes decades ago little did they know those hits would go on to inspire a Musical and also a smash hit movie. Mamma Mia has earned its place alongside shows like Grease and The Sound Of Music it's a show you can never tire of.
The cast in this production are just incredible and as well as having pitch perfect vocals they perform some great comedy throughout the performance, like I said earlier your cheeks will ache from smiling. Sara Poyzer (Donna) delivers an outstanding rendition of 'The Winner Takes It All' and there's some great…
