Myth - 2018 - West End


Summer 2016 - A new British rock musical premiered at London's Cockpit Theatre. It was called '27' and it caused a real stir amongst audiences. Fast forward 18 months and now titled Myth, the production has been re-conceived for a strictly limited run of nine performances at The Other Palace.

A modern retelling of the Ancient Greek tale of Orpheus and the underworld, Myth features an electrifying score with outstanding performances from an ensemble comprising the best up and coming new talent. Don't miss your opportunity to be a part of the next chapter of Myth - a musical for a new generation that will make you laugh, break your heart and rock you to your very core.

Speaking exclusively to TOP, the show's writer and composer Sam Cassidy said: "It's true that musicals are not written, but rather rewritten. I am so excited to be sharing the next phase in our journey with Other Palace audiences. For this one-off run, we've been fortunate to bring together not just an awesome cast but a killer of a band, they're going to blow you away!"

Please note that this is a semi-staged production with minimal costumes.
