unknown theatre

One Hundred Peking Opera Characters. Qing Dynasty 1600s-1911, China late 1800s, artist unknown. In the opera boom of the late 19th century, albums were turned to a new purpose: documenting the variety and vibrancy of stage culture in all its multicolored splendor. This album records in detail the makeup&costume of 100 characters drawn from nine plays/operas shown in Peking. Each character is identified w/an inscription&the plays are named@the top right of nine of the leaves in slightly larger script.

I´m gonna start a theme. Introduce unknown mucial theatre actors..

Today I´m starting with Tom…

I want to introduce you to an actor I know since about 2 years. Its Tom Nihill and he currently plays Starlight Express in Bochum. He´s one of the Swings there. The first Show i watched with him was We will Rock you in 2015. I guess he played Miley in my first show and he was brilliant. A really good Ensemble dancer, he was on in all three shows i´ve watched on that tour.

At Starlight i had him as Ruhrgold(the german train) and he was such a neat and fantastic train. His voice was very clear and his german is good. I dont really like the role of Ruhrgold, but he was really really good and in that show i liked Ruhrgold.


I think i´ll do this regularly. More people should see small actors, cause they never know how big they will be one day.. :)

UPDATED ARTIST AU
AU- Harry is the fit supermarket check out boy. Louis wants to sleep with him. Summer romance ensues.
You auditioned without me,” Louis says, his voice disbelieving. “How the fuck can you stand there and hurl all this shit at me when you literally left me behind to go audition for the show we’d been dreaming of being on together?”
“What was I supposed to do, Louis? You refused to audition with me unless we were honest about being a couple. I knew we never would have made it past the first auditions. You left me no other choice; it was either audition alone or not audition at all.“
Louis feels his own eyes start to fill with tears. “You chose a fucking reality show over our relationship. If you still don’t see that you made the wrong choice than I don’t think there’s any reason for me to waste another second here.”
A Famous/Non-Famous turned Famous/Famous AU where Harry makes the biggest mistake of his life and Louis’ left to pick up the pieces.Everything is not always as they seem, Louis realises this more than once as he starts over in a place he never would’ve entered out of his free will before. The biggest surprise is the man who doesn’t blink twice about putting him on his team, but the same man is also the reason to why his headache won’t leave.
There’s more than meets the eye and after a night filled with joy and good company, the reason for his behaviour becomes painfully clear and unable to be denied. But with every positive moment he’s experienced throughout his life, it seems a backlash of negativity always encounters.
The one where Louis is unable to stay professional when Harry lets his guard down while someone else takes advantage of both their actions.

He deals with a sassy, 500 pound liger every day, but Harry Styles might be his downfall. The thought doesn’t scare him as much as he thought it would.
Or, the one where Harry runs away to escape his past and Louis has nowhere else to go to have a future.
Circus Fic.

AU where Louis Tomlinson is a principal dancer with The Royal Ballet. When his rival from ballet school, moody dance prodigy Harry Styles joins the company, old wounds are reopened and old passions reignited. During the company’s production of Swan Lake the secret that doomed their love is finally revealed, but will it be too late?Louis Tomlinson is a primatologist working with the Jane Goodall Institute for primate conservation; and Harry Styles is the photojournalist sent from National Geographic to write a piece promoting awareness about the endangered species. They meet, and love is never, ever simple, as we know.
Featuring Eli the chimpanzee, bickering humans, storytelling, and five men who come to gain an understanding of what it means to be human; all stationed in the Republic of the Congo.Louis is a shy, young musician who doesn’t want to go to Harvard.
Harry is a confident, second year athlete who likes to have a good time.
When their paths cross while their families are vacationing at the same lake resort, what begins as a summer of fun becomes a defining journey that might just change everything.When Louis moves into the flat next to Harry’s, neither of them thinks it will change their lives. Louis is stuck in a relationship with his controlling and overly possessive boyfriend who he loves too much to break up with.. Harry is content, seeking refuge from the snobby world he grew up in and forging a new path for himself. He does happen to have a habit of wanting to fix people though and when he meets Louis, the gorgeous man with a prat of a boyfriend, he finds himself trying to do just that. While Harry tries to avoid getting tangled in a messy situation, Louis tries to deny that there’s a niggling voice in the back of his head that prefers Harry to his own boyfriend. While both studiously refuse to let change come, they fail to notice that exact force wrapping around them and pulling them tighter together until there just might be no escape from the feelings brewing within.
  • I’ll come around if you ever want to be in love (39k, one shot) - musician!harry, film student!louis
Louis is a film student, Harry is a musician, and shooting a music video doesn’t help on the path of trying not to fall in love.“I’m really—” The words die inside Louis’ mouth and time seems to stop.
The face is the same, and yet, different. His eyes are still haunting, and Louis feels like he dipped into an abyss of obscure feelings. He stares back at Louis and he doesn’t know what to think, what he could read in his black expression.
Without notice, he wraps his arms around Louis’ waist and pulls him into a tight hug. He is taller than Louis and it is with a sense of satisfaction that Louis realises how he fits in Harry’s arms perfectly.
“I thought I’d never see you again,” Harry drawls out. Voice rough and controlled.
Or, Harry and Louis are separated when they are younger with harsh promises of never seeing each other again. But oh, Fate has other plans for them.There’s Louis, there’s Harry, and there’s the lovingly and fittingly named Trash-Cat (formerly known as Lucifer).
Written based on this prompt: “Au where Louis finds a cat on his doorstep & is like "ur the cutest little thing ever. U have a collar but no tags, did you run away or somethin buddy?” L who takes the cat in & it’s a few days until he sees lost posters up & he’s sad because he’s grown attached to it but calls the number. & the guy who introduces himself as Harry is so happy that his cat’s been taken care of & once he meets Louis, promises he can visit. But Louis doesn’t have to worry about visiting anymore once he moves in”And Louis is not a fucking coward, but this hurts so much more than he ever thought it would.
Everyone knows that Louis is broken and Harry likes to think he can fix everything.
West End AU in which Louis is a former Royal Shakespeare Company actor looking for his way back to the top, Harry is an actor best known for his work in unknown bits of experimental theatre and being the darling of London’s new age theatre scene, and Simon Cowell is the renowned director who brings the two of them together.
Also featuring Assistant Director!Zayn, Famous TV Actor!Niall, and Stage Manager!Liamau where Harry takes art classes on Fridays before going to work and Louis is the French nude model who drops the robe and doesn’t let him focus. There are plenty of text messages, a mess of emotions and a lot of time spent in bed.

Louis likes bathroom walls and Sharpies, Harry likes metal, Zayn likes Liam and Liam likes Zayn, Niall is wise, and they all go to the zoo.

  • Hold me closer (36k, chaptered) - dancer!louis, coreographer!harry
    Louis Tomlinson is one of the most promising dancers of the English National Ballet, on track to become the youngest principal dancer in the company’s history. That is, until forces conspire to significantly complicate his life, including: a surprise ballet, an unfairly attractive guest choreographer, and being pushed into a rivalry with his best mate. Featuring lots of wine, dancing, pining, and a happy ending.

Newest Fics  an early celebration for my birthday on sept 22nd

1. Dress You Up in My Love (72k)

Harry is single, and more than anything wants to find love. Agreeing to sign up to a dating website was a bad, bad idea. Niall’s bad, bad idea. Louis is single, but has no interest in relationships. Or so he tells himself. 



Harry is a lawyer, his boss, Nick, happens to give him a bonus, which he decides to splurge on a new work wardrobe. Louis is a frustrated designer, working as a personal shopper at Selfridges. Louis happens to be working on the day a very beautiful, but out of his depth, new customer ambles into their department in need of advice. Louis might have just found the muse he never knew he was looking for.

2. Ache To Know The Song He Sung (14k)

Louis is a bartender and Harry is a DJ in a club in Barcelona. All they really need to do is get their shit together. Of course, that’s not what happens. 

3. For You I Saved the Love (I Never Knew How to Give) (42k)

Louis moves to a small town with his young daughter and has a gorgeous neighbor. Harry loves children and Louis also likes him a little bit. Lots of fluff.

here are some fics I’ve enjoyed and loved reading throughout the month of May and I recommend that you read them in June (if you haven’t already)!

Of all the government agents in the world, Louis had to go and land the most charming one.

Take Me Home (Soulmate!Michael AU - Part 3)

Requested: yes sir 
Pairing: Michael + Y/N 
Words: haven’t finished yet who knows (1901)
Warnings: it’s about michael so probably swearing. There will be a little bit of violence and some emotional conversations but that’s about it really. 
A/N: Sorry this is so late, also I don’t own that gif so creds to whoever made it. This series is moving very quickly but yolo. idk if you’ll want part 4 after this. let me know?? 

masterlist 


Even though you swore to yourself that you thought Michael was annoying and obnoxious and borderline arrogant, you found yourself hanging out with him more often than not. Literally 6 out of 7 days in the following week since you’d met you’d spent a minimum of at least 3 hours within the musician’s presence, be it meeting him in a low-key pub in an alleyway somewhere for beer and nachos, or hiding out in a virtually unknown movie theatre watching some God awful foreign movie that literally neither of you had any interest in. The point wasn’t what you were doing together, though. It was having the company. Michael being Michael Clifford, though, made it hard — hence the dingy bars and hipster film spots. Neither of you wanted the extra hassle of having the world keep tabs on your relationship (or lack thereof) and discovering everything about you when you two didn’t even know each other yet. You were trying to find your footing and so far the only way to do that was with dark sunglasses and beanies.

Actor!AU Masterlist

- Of Love and Blood and Hate by veronicahague - 

“You auditioned without me,” Louis says, his voice disbelieving. “How the fuck can you stand there and hurl all this shit at me when you literally left me behind to go audition for the show we’d been dreaming of being on together?”

“What was I supposed to do, Louis? You refused to audition with me unless we were honest about being a couple. I knew we never would have made it past the first auditions. You left me no other choice; it was either audition alone or not audition at all.“

Louis feels his own eyes start to fill with tears. “You chose a fucking reality show over our relationship. If you still don’t see that you made the wrong choice than I don’t think there’s any reason for me to waste another second here.”

A Famous/Non-Famous turned Famous/Famous AU where Harry makes the biggest mistake of his life and Louis’ left to pick up the pieces. (42k)

- Too Colorful to Conceal by littlelostpieces

Louis has worked hard to become a respected actor, too hard to let his theater career be derailed by an exuberant makeup artist with insanely long fingers and legs that go on for days, especially one that enjoys flirting as much as Harry does. (14k)

- Shine by togetherwecouldbealright

Louis has never seen someone who is as beautiful as Harry is, the faint light overhead casting a warm glow over him. He’s wearing an apron that matches the color of his lips and it’s slightly askew, tied loosely around his waist. His hair is pulled into a messy bun, a single strand falling into his eyes that are filled with a tangible wildness. There’s also a streak of flour across one of his cheekbones that he’s failed to notice.

He’s messy. He’s incredibly messy. But he’s also so, so beautiful that he takes Louis’ breath away. Louis doesn’t think he’s ever felt this way about someone.

Louis is an actor who needs to get away from the real world. He does the only thing that he can and runs away, finding himself in a small town where he happens upon Harry. What Louis doesn’t expect is to somehow fall in love and end up having to face what he was running from all along. (40k)
