BEEN ON BROADWAY Set for Single Performance at The Duchess Theatre, Oct 13
Following a sold out and acclaimed show at the Pheasantry in Chelsea earlier this year, Been on Broadway will make its West End debut for one night only at the Duchess Theatre on Sunday 13th October, featuring songs from Broadway musicals that haven't yet made it to the West End.
A consummate cast of young British musical theatre talent will get its teeth (and lungs) around some of Broadway's best and hottest tunes from the modern musical era, including songs from current and cult shows such as Next to Normal, Newsies, The Addams Family, Bring It On, The Little Mermaid, Wonderland and The Boy from Oz to name only a few.
From the producers of the acclaimed Notes from New York series and Idina Menzel's award- winning UK tour, Been on Broadway showcases the best contemporary musical theatre writing from the other side of the pond, offering London audiences to chance to hear the latest songs from Broadway performed by young British musical theatre talent.
Been on Broadway stars Jordan Luke Gage (Taboo), Christopher Mitchell (LIZA (on an E)), Sally Samad (Alistair McGowan's Big Impressions), Alexandra Da Silva (Momentous Musicals, Streets Project), Phoebe Street (LES MISERABLES) and Sebastian Thomas (Paralympic Ceremonies), all of whom return to the show for its West End date.
Been on Broadway is produced by Neil Eckersley for Speckulation Entertainment, with musical direction by Joe Louis Robinson.
