Holidays got in the way of me posting October's theatre hottie and girl crush so I decided to package up it up with November into a bumper edition - see it as an early Christmas present.
Theatre hottie: This was a tough one, because it was a month where the suave, sophisticated and hot Mark Strong was on stage in The Red Barn at the National, although he did keep his shirt on. But he was just pipped at the post by Jack Derges as 'The Cowboy' in The Boys in the Band. I might have giggled like a 14-year-old when he first stepped on stage looking like this. Certainly there was knowing look that passed between PolyG and I. It must have been such hard work for Mark Gatiss. What can I say, I'm shallow.
The Boys in the Band is transferring to the Vaudeville Theatre for a two week run in February.
