Oliver Ormson is currently playing Rob in High Fidelity at the Turbine Theatre in south London.

The theatre was recently founded by its Artistic Director, Paul Taylor Mills. High Fidelity is the theatre’s second production and its first musical.

The show originally opened on Broadway in 2006 where it closed 10 days after its opening night.

The show is about a north London record shop owner called Rob who ranks everything in his life in top 5 lists and whose girlfriend breaks up with him. It’s based on a novel by Nick Hornby.

You may have seen Oliver before in shows such as Cats at Kilworth House and The Addams Family UK tour.

We had a chat one afternoon before the show in the auditorium which was built beneath a railway arch on the mainline into London Victoria.
