The London Palladium is renowned all over the world as the home of stage entertainment. From smash-hit musicals to the British debut of Judy Garland, as well as hosting numerous Royal Variety Performances and the beloved Sunday Night at the Palladium, the famous theatre has seen it all. Small surprise, then, that so many of those who have entered through the stage door have a story to tell.
Neil Sean, entertainment correspondent and performer, has long been fascinated by the theatre and the hold it exerts over so many performers. Over his years in show business he has interviewed and chatted with a staggering number of stars of stage and screen and in this book he spills the beans, bringing backstage stories to life with plenty of glitz and glamour. He also explores the effect that the London Palladium has had on the world of entertainment and the glory that surrounds that singular honour - having your name in lights above the most famous theatre in the world.
Neil Sean currently presents daily entertainment news and royal exclusives on US TV through NBC news / Access Hollywood / MSNBC and is also the royal editor for Channel Ten in Australia. He also appears here in the UK on BBC / ITV and Sky News. Neil has a passion for the variety theatre having appeared in his own show at the Palladium this year. Neil started his career aged just 6 at the Blackpool Summer season of Cilla Black as his father was a Northern comic. He then spent every summer season up and down the country appearing with the likes of Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson and Dick Emery.
