Julie Atherton to Lead Interval Productions' ANOTHER WAY World Premiere, 11 Sept. - 5 Oct.
Another Way, a new musical about being on the cusp of greatness, featuring the songs of up-and-coming singer/songwriter Benedict, rearranged specially for the production, will get its world premiere at The Cockpit theatre from Wednesday 11 September - Saturday 5 October.
With a cast that includes West End regular Julie Atherton (she originated the role of Kate Monster/Lucy The Slut in Avenue Q and made her West End debut in he lead role of Sophie in MammaMia!), Another Way is three short stories about three London-based couples - friends, family and lovers - over the course of three months. It's about luck in its different forms, from feeling lucky to being struck by luck, by a chance meeting. It's about hope, it's about getting stronger, and staying up later, for the 'dawn of our glory days'.
