A fine array of West End stars will perform new musical theatre songs to celebrate the launch of NewUKMusicals.co.uk
You’ll of course be aware of New UK Musicals thanks to my recent interview with the site’s founder Darren Clark and he’s now called on some of his more famous friends to help him round off the launch in some style with an all-star concert on 23rd June, highlighting some of the best new musical theatre composers around.
The cast includes: Rachel Tucker (Wicked, Come From Away), Tyrone Huntley (Jesus Chris Superstar), Rebecca Trehearn (Showboat, City of Angels), Zizi Strallen (Mary Poppins), Tori Allen Martin (The Season), Luke Baker (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Yazdan Qafouri (The Band, The Wicker Husband), Claire-Marie Hall (Operation Mincemeat), Harrison Knights (BBC One’s All Together Now), Molly Lynch (The Light in the Piazza) and award winning comedian Sooz Kempner.
All will be singing songs that can be found and downloaded from the new website from writers including:
Finn Anderson (Islander), Bateman & Conley (The Sorrows of Satan), Ed Bell (My 80 Year Old Boyfriend), Teresa Howard (I Capture the Castle), Richy Hughes (Superhero), Noisemaker (My Left Right Foot), Eamonn O’Dwyer (The Legend of Sleepy Hollow), Susannah Pearse (Jabberwocky), Amir Shoenfeld (Benny in Beta), Emily Rose Simons (Confessions of a Rabbi’s Daughter), Tim Sutton (The Secret Garden) and Wigmore and Green (Van Winkle).
