Robert Gould Returns to Union Theatre with MUSICALS SHARED WITH FRIENDS

Librettist/lyricist RoBert Gould will return to the Union Theatre on Sunday May 7 with MUSICALS SHARED WITH FRIENDS - a concert of songs from five new musicals for which he has penned lyrics. RoBert Gould is co- writer (with Christopher J. Orton) of the recent highly acclaimed, sell-out, Offie Award nominated musical "My Land's Shore" which received its world premiere at Ye Olde Rose And Crown Theatre in February 2017. An album of songs with Gould's lyrics - "Words Shared With Friends" - with vocals by a stellar cast of West End vocalists, was released in 2014 and was nominated for a Broadwayworld Album Award as Best Compilation Album. He has presented a number of concerts of his songs in London Fringe venues, including two sell-out cabarets of songs written with composer Rob Eyles ("I Wasn't Thinking At All" and "As Long As I Have Music") at The Pheasantry in 2015 and 2016 and "Favourite Sins And Chocolate Bars" with co-writer Alex James Ellison at the Union Theatre in October 2016.
