Photo Flash: In Rehearsal With New Rock Musical 27
Ryan Molloy, Cassie Compton, Greg Oliver and Jack Donnelly star in the world premiere of the new British rock musical "27".
Directed by world-renowned director/choreographer Arlene Phillips,"27" is an intoxicating modern fable of our time, a dark interpretation of one of humanity's oldest stories. It has music, book and lyrics and is co-directed by Sam Cassidy. "27" will run from Thursday 8 September to Saturday October 22 in a 6-week season at London's 170-seat Cockpit Theatre. Press night is Monday 12 September at 7.30pm.
Hendrix, Joplin, Cobain, Morrison and Winehouse: all music legends whose lives were tragically cut short at 27. Orpheus is a would-be rock star turned icon whose experiences of fame and notoriety lead him on a journey of unstoppable self-destruction. Another name for the list. At the tender age of 27. Another star, extinguished...
"27", featuring 13 musical numbers and a cast of 15, is a shattering exploration of the fragility of life and the unwitting connections that bind us together. With original lyrics and score, this rock musical serves up songs to die for and killer guitar riffs and will take you somewhere you probably didn't think existed anymore.
