In our October episode, critics Tim Bano and Lyn Gardner discuss Marianne Elliott's new gender-swapped production of Company by Stephen Sondheim with comedian Tom Allen.
Plus, we go backstage to talk to Steph Parry, the 42nd Street understudy who made headlines when she stepped in to save Mamma Mia! in the West End.
Meanwhile, after last month's failed attempt to learn an American accent, reporter Fergus Morgan runs off to join the circus, with some help from circus company Mimbre.
