Stephen Sondheim has written some of the most evocative and heart-felt love songs within the history of the Musical Theatre form. As the recipient of the 2012 Brighton Festival 'Angel' for Artistic Excellence, "Just Another Love Story" celebrates, explores and questions the concept of love; through the songs written by Broadway's foremost composer lyricist.
Including an exciting balance of Sondheim standards and relatively unknown and unheard music from as varied source material as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Follies, Road Show, Assassins, A Little Night Music, film scores and many more; "Just Another Love Story" promises to delight audiences new to the songs as much as the die-hard Sondheim aficionado.
"Just Another Love Story" features an eight strong, ensemble cast, and is directed by London Theatre Workshop's Artistic Director, Ray Rackham, with musical direction by Thomas Lees. Rackham and Lees were the creative team behind London Theatre Workshop's inaugural production, "Ordinary Days".
The cast includes Oliver Watton ("Wicked" in West End, "Ordinary Days" - London Theatre Workshop, Olly Larkin in "Hollyoaks"), Sam Harrison ("Avenue Q" in West End, "Phantom of the Opera" - UK Tour, "Salad Days" - Riverside Studios), Ellen Verenieks ("The Gay Naked Play" - Above The Stage Theatre, "Flora the Red Menace" - Landor Theatre, Cabaret at Don't Tell Mama, NYC) as well as marking the return of Marcia Brown and Anton Tweedale (Claire and Warren in "Ordinary Days" at London Theatre Workshop). Lowri-Ann Davies ("Four by Tenn" - Drayton Theatre, "Company" - Pleasance Theatre), Steve Brown ("Company" - Pleasance Theatre) and newcomer Aimee Gray (Royal Academy of Music, 2013 graduate) complete the cast.
