CELEBRATING SILVERMAN Set for 6 April at London Hippodrome
PK Productions, by arrangement with Stanley Silverman and R&H Theatricals Europe, present CELEBRATING SILVERMAN with music by Stanley Silverman, and direction by Patrick Kennedy, and music direction by Peter Mitchell on Sunday, 6th April 2014 at London Hippodrome.
Following 75th birthday concert celebrations across North America last year, London celebrates the 50 year career of Stanley Silverman in an evening of song performed by a stellar cast.
Stanley Silverman is an Obie, Drama Desk, Naumburg and Koussevitsky Foundation award-winning and Tony and Grammy nominated American composer, who has enjoyed several decades in both the classical and popular music worlds, as well as in theatre and film. He has collaborated with well-known pop artists and musicians, such as James Taylor, Paul Simon, Sting, Elton John, and the British rock band Procol Harum. His classical compositions have been performed by Pierre Boulez and the New York Philharmonic, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, Richard Stolzman, Michael Tilson Thomas, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
Following the London premiere of Dr. Selavy's Magic Theatre in January, PK Productions has joined forces with Stanley Silverman to create an evening of wonderful songs and stories reflecting his long and diverse career including some songs which haven't been performed in over thirty years.
The evening will also mark the London premiere of a selection of songs from Up From Paradise, Arthur Miller's only musical.
