Picture Perfect: A New Musical, a contemporary song-cycle musical that explores love and relationships using the songs of award-winning American composer Scott Evan Davis, conceived and directed by Simon Greiff, had its London premiere at the St James Studio over four performances on Saturday 31 May and Sunday 1 June. Check out a look back at the production below!

Josh is graduating college and preparing to face the future - whatever that may bring! Unlucky in love, he wonders whether the right person is out there for him. Ellie, on her gap year from her law degree, wonders whether she's making the right decisions in life - both professional and personal! Harry and Elizabeth, Josh's parents, are also at a turning point in their lives - with Harry inadvertently starting an affair with a younger woman, and Elizabeth believing now is the time to finally leave her husband. Is anything 'Picture Perfect'?

The stunning cast features major West End stars. Helen Hobson's West End starring roles include Donna in Mamma Mia! and Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers as well as playing the Mother Abbess in the acclaimed production of The Sound of Music in Regent's Park. Jerome Pradon's West End starring roles include Javert in Les Miserables, Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings and The Man in Whistle Down the Wind. Charlotte Wakefield was nominated for Olivier Awards for her West End debut in Spring Awakening and The Sound of Music, Joel Harper-Jackson has just appeared in the Rent 20th Anniversary tour. Picture Perfect, in its earliest revue format, had previous productions in New York and LA. It has now been further developed and written for the London stage, drawing on new original material as well as work from Davis' debut 2011 recording, Cautiously Optimistic. Over the past two years, Davis' music has gained international praise. Last spring he was the recipient of a Courage in Theater Award from Musical Theater International for his musical A Powerful Day, written with autistic students at the Spectrum School in Manhattan. He is currently developing with librettist Tessa Derfner, a new musical, INDIGO, about an autistic child. He last performed in London alongside Georgia Stitt and Michael Patrick Walker in the Matcham Room at the London Hippodrome. He won the first ever Broadwayworld Award for Best Song with If We Say Goodbye, which features in Picture Perfect: A New Musical.
