All-star cast for The Distance You Have Come revival at the West End’s Apollo Theatre!
I’m not sure the Cockpit Theatre has that many West End transfers on its resume but it’s kinda cool that producers Sevans Productions and Krystal Lee have turned to its 2018 production of Scott Alan’s The Distance You Have Come to bring into the West End for two performances in June.
And though they may have mislaid Jodie Jacobs along the way, Alice Fearn makes for a powerful replacement as the remainder of the company returns with the show. The cast thus features Andy Coxon (West Side Story, Beautiful – The Carole King Musical); Alice Fearn (Come From Away, Wicked); Adrian Hansel (Starlight Express, Hairspray); Emma Hatton (Evita, Wicked); Dean John-Wilson (The King and I, Aladdin) and Alexia Khadime (The Prince of Egypt, Wicked).
In a song cycle of his most acclaimed works, sung by some of the best voices in the West End, award winning composer and lyricist Scott Alan leads us through a year in the intertwined lives of six people facing the joy and heartache of the human experience, as they each search for their own version of happiness – which is, after all, what it’s all about.
Orchestrations are by Scott Hayes (Rent; I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change) who will also be the Musical Director, Kirk Jameson joins as Director (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change; Marry Me a Little; Madagascar) with Lighting Design by Andrew Ellis (Eugenius, Flashdance): Original Direction was by Scott Alan and original Production Design by Simon Daw. The production is produced by Sevans Productions and Krystal Lee.
