Fresh from his own solo concert last month Aladdin star Dean John-Wilson will be supporting Broadway's Shoshana Bean in her solo concert at Covent Garden's The Singer's Lounge this Sunday evening!  Also supporting will be West End and Broadway star Ramin Karimloo.

Having seen both Dean and Ramin live and having watch some of Shoshana's Defying Gravity performances on YouTube I can safely say that tickets for this event are an absolute steal!  Three phenomenal voices for just £18, that's the best value for money you're ever gonna get in London!

If you're in London this weekend you can get your tickets right here!  But be fast as there's not many left and it's sure to be an incredible evening!

Aladdin Comes to Once Upon a Time TONIGHT!

Now here's a day I never thought would come!  Tonight ABC's Once Upon a Time begins it's sixth season and Aladdin is finally making his debut on the show!!

Thank God for Netflix as I can legally watch the show tomorrow, less than 24 hours after it airs in the US!  I've loved this show since the beginning and can't wait to see my favourite Disney character join the cast!

And then in episode 4 a certain Disney Princess will be making her debut played by none other than Galavant's Karen David!  Oh how I wish OUAT could do a musical number right now!!

Here's a little tease at what's in store tonight;

Never thought I'd be happy for it to get to Monday!  CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

After the show the guests got a chance to meet the cast and discuss the show.  During the Q&A Big City Little Blog got a chance to sit down with Courtney Reed to discuss her newly launched Gagged Chokers brand and you can read all about it at their blog right here!

It's always great hearing from Courtney and if you want a choker of your own make sure you use the discount code at the bottom of the interview!
