So i decided to upload an extra blog post this week to tell you about a fabulous show which is called Adam&Eve…And Steve which is an off-west end musical currently. It is on at the King’s Head Theatre in Islington. Adam&Eve…And Steve has an absolutely amazing casting which includes Joseph Robinson who Plays Adam, Hayley Hampson who plays Eve. I was so impressed by her amazing voice. Sassy Steve was Played By the Fabulous Dale Adams. Steve and Eve had a massive diva off which was hilarious and i loved the songs as they were very catchy songs. I would definitely recommend going to seeing Adam&Eve…And Steve as it is a hilarious show that is definitely worth the ticket price and it is such a great 75 minutes and a spectacular evening out in London. I would definitely recommend going to see Adam&Eve…And Steve.Do not just believe me you should read these reviews about Adam&Eve … and Steve
I had the pleasure of interviewing Dale last year check out the interview : https://rachelbblogger.wordpress.com/2017/07/16/interview-with-dale-adam/
It was on from the 21st March 2017 to the 29th April 2017.
Hope you enjoyed reading this blog.
Hi All, This is from last year as in 2016 . I actually ended up seeing Adam&Eve and steve as you will see later on my blog
Hope you enjoy this interview with Dale Adams.
Rachel(Me): Hi Dale, The first question is what inspired you to become an actor?
Dale : My first show. I was cast when I was 9 in a Christmas production of the wizard of oz. I hasn’t been on stage before then, but it came so naturally to me. That’s when I knew I belonged on the stage. It’s funny, I’ve just recently finished playing opposite one of the principle characters in that production as a professional myself.
Rachel: Oh that sounds brilliant so would you say you have a natural talent for acting
Dale: Saying I was naturally talented would make me sound egotistical. I would say everyone is born in life with something that they have a talent for, some people find it and some people don’t. I had to train very hard to get where I am today
Rachel: Yeah you do have to do some training to perfect your talent and to prepare you for the job of being an actor such auditions. What would be your top tip going into an audition ?
Dale: When you step into that room, act like you already have the job and are showing them what you’ve been working on for the show (hypothetically of course). It strips back all the stigmas attached to auditioning and puts you as an actor in the right frame of mind. I have a lot of friends who are on the other side of the audition room and they say that they hire people who are ready to work and give something unique and special to a part. ALSO NEVER FORGET you are auditioning the panel just as much as they are auditioning you. You need to know if you can work with them as well.
Rachel: That’s great advice
The next question is If you could do you dream role what would it be and why?
Dale: The Phantom! In the Phantom of the Opera. It’s been a dream role since I was a teenager. I love the show and everything about it. I’d love to be the Phantom as he’s such an iconic part and I’d love to bring a new and fresh spin to him. Without going into too much detail, we as an audience forget that he is a psychopath because we feel sorry for him. I’d like to find a light and shade in his pain and bring a further chilling element to the “Opera Ghost”
Rachel: Oh that sounds like such a great spin on the phantom
That leads quite nicely onto the next question which is what is your favorites musical ?
Dale: My favourite? Ahhh that’s such a hard question. The Wizard of Oz will always have a place in my heart, because it was my first show. I went to go and see it three times when it was in the West End a couple of years ago. Since I finished playing Anthony in Sweeney Todd I’ve really been getting knee deep in Sondheim musicals. I really love the score to “Sunday in the Park with George”.
Rachel: Aww I have to say I do remember singing in the choir we were in together singing Sunday from Sunday in the park with George
Dale: Such a beautiful finale, brings a tear to my eye!
Rachel: Aww did someone first inspire you to become actor if so who and why did they inspire you to be an actor ?
Dale :I did a summer stage experience of We Will Rock You when I was 15. I played the lead and the director could see my interest in persuing acting as a career. He told me about Arts Educational Schools, London where he trained and where, three years on, I trained. I owe a lot to him as he taught me how to believe in myself
Rachel: Aww that’s such a lovely story. This question I would be so interested to hear your response to and the question is if you could perform on stage with one person it can be anyone who would it be and why?
Dale :Neil Patrick Harris!! He’s my idol. He’s achieved so much in his career and I would die a happy man if I had a chance to share the stage with such a talented performer.
Rachel: Aww yeah he’s such a great actor I loved him in the show how I met your mother.That’s a great choice
Who have you had the pleasure of working with on stage that you never thought you would work with?
Dale: When I sang alongside Michael Ball on Friday Night is Music Night (BBC Radio 2) I couldn’t quite comprehend what was going on. Michael was always a celebrity in my eyes and having the chance to work with him felt like I was dreaming. Although in recent years I’ve grown rather immune to working with “names”. We’re all actors trying to earn a living. One big happy family.
Rachel:Aww very true and Michael ball sounds so lovely.
Next question is Do you have any performances coming up and if you do what are they for?
Dale : A couple of things lined up. I’m flying out to Dubai next week to start rehearsals for Peter Pan, which runs from December 20th-27th. Then in March 2017 I’ll be making my London debut as Steve in the new musical “Adam & Eve… and Steve?” at the Kings Head Theatre from the 21st.
Rachel : Oh sound so exciting I will definitely have to try to come to the one in London as I saw the reviews and they sounded so good
And Dubai how exciting. Do you enjoy travelling as part of being an actor?
Dale: I do. It’s nice to be paid to see the world, but it’s no different to any other acting job. You just tend to come back with a tan.
Rachel: Aww that’s a benefit then. Where has you travelled to for a role ?
Dale: Bahrains been the only other exotic one. I was a Frankie Valle tribute for 6 months in Mallorca, but I don’t class the Spanish isles as exotic. Warmer than the UK however.
Rachel: Oh that’s good then that sounds so great and it’s lovely to travel
I was wondering how you manage your vlogging and your acting? Do you have to compromise?
Dale: Well I only vlog once a week, which isn’t too much trouble to set time aside for. There was once a time when I was a couple of weeks ahead of myself, just incase I got busy. I have been very busy recently and haven’t managed to get back on top of them yet.
Rachel: I know the feeling very well as I am doing vlogmas and I am blogger as well so yeah.But that’s good that you can do both
Talking about vlogging from your perspective what would one piece of advice be for anyone that wants to start vlogging ?
Dale: Don’t be afraid of the camera, just be yourself and share as much as you can. Most importantly… have fun. It’s not about subscribers and likes, it’s about enjoying yourself. That’s what people want to see in a Youtuber.
Rachel: Yeah that’s definitely a great piece of advice for wanting to be a vlogger.
And the final question is what is your YouTube channel so that anyone who would like to watch your vlogs that you do once a week can do and can also subscribe
Rachel:Thank you so much for giving up your time to be interviewed and it’s been an absolute pleasure to interview you and hope Peter Pan in Dubai goes well.
Dale:Thanks babe and be sure to check out my video tonight at 6(Thursday)
Rachel:I will definitely watch your video tonight which is Thursday
Thank you so much Dale for the fantastic interview and good luck with future productions. x
