Foxtel Arts-Stage & Screen

Foxtel Arts is merging several of its presenters together for a single Arts review programme, Stage & Screen.

Deborah Hutton will host, joined by Margaret Pomeranz, Graeme Blundell, Leo Schofield and arts writer Chris Hook from the Daily Telegraph.

The weekly series will cover what’s on show, where and when across, theatre, music, opera, dance, visual art, film and television.

Fraser Stark, Foxtel Arts’ Channel Manger said, “With so much coverage of the Arts to deliver each week the channel is pleased to have assembled contributing talent of such suitably high calibre for Stage & Screen. It’s an impressive array of critical perspectives – fitting of the rich and diverse subject matter it has before it.”

Stage & Screen will also feature unique interviews with arts luminaries and the star performers of cinema, television and the live performing arts, offering insight into the diverse offerings and talent that exists right across the Australian arts and culture landscape.

The premiere episode of Stage & Screen, Wednesday May 11 at 8.00pm on Foxtel Arts covers what’s on in theatre performances around the country, music and dance, must-see exhibitions, upcoming cinema releases and what’s on the small screen.

Margaret Pomeranz reviews Tina Fey’s new dramedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot co-starring Australia’s own Margot Robbie. Margaret then teams up with Graeme Blundell to review the much anticipated series return of Wentworth on Foxtel’s SoHo channel.

After successful international seasons including London’s West End and Broadway, Ghost: The Musical comes to Australia for the very first time and stars Rob Mills and Jemma Rix sit down with Stage & Screen for a revealing chat in between performances at Sydney’s Theatre Royal.

Arts reporter Chris Hook reviews Hay Fever, Noel Coward’s ‘exquisitely funny and irresistibly heartless comedy’ now showing at the Sydney Opera House.

  1. Disappointing. I liked Screen, and I’m not interested in the live scene. I guess that’s what fast forward is for, but it sounds like coverage of screen overall could be reduced, unless this new show is going to go for more than an hour.
