Norwich Theatre Talks - S01 E8: Craig Revel Horwood, Joe Ballard & Nic Gordon
The art of drag is the theme for Norwich Theatre’s latest podcast episode. Craig Revel Horwood joined host Stephen Crocker in Podcast Corner at Norwich Theatre Playhouse, while he was in Norwich playing Miss Hannigan in Annie the Musical this month.
He tells Stephen about how he created his version of Miss Hannigan; his drag persona in Australia; the creativity in gender-flipping well-known roles; and why jumping out of an aeroplane was less nerve-wracking than conducting at the Royal Opera House. Craig also talks about his time on Strictly Come Dancing and how he learned Latin and Ballroom at the late Len Goodman’s School of Dance in Dartford. He is the longest serving Strictly judge in the world, across the 60 versions.
This episode also features local drag performers Joseph Ballard, known as Titania Trust, and Norwich Theatre’s graphic designer Nic Gordon, who performs as Jester Mirage.
