The European premiere of Ryan Scott Oliver’s Southern gothic thriller We Foxes Come and an appearance by US musical theatre rising star Joey Contreras are among the genre highlights at London’s Live At Zédel this September.
Award-winning New York-based Oliver’s latest musical We Foxes Come will be performed as a one night only concert reading on 27 September, while Californian composer Contreras will bring his distinctive blend of pop and contemporary musical theatre to the venue on 24 September.
Other musical theatre highlights will include: Laurence Owen and Lindsay Sharman’s musical interpretation of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine which will arrive in London fresh from a run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; and double Tony nominee Jason Carr who will take to the stage with special guests in Something Good.
Cabaret shows in the September programme include Broadway veteran and star of TV’s Mad Men, Bryan Batt, in his one-man show about growing up in New Orleans; and Gary Williams (West End’s Rat Pack) who will celebrate Hollywood’s golden moments in At the Movies.
Making her cabaret debut will be Lucy Penrose who will follow up her West End performances as the young Judy Garland in Judy! with her new show Judy and I.
Launched last year with the aim of offering a diverse mixture of new and emerging talent and multi-discipline and genre-busting live entertainment, Live At Zédel utilises the distinctively different Brasserie Zédel and Crazy Coqs spaces within the Zédel building in the heart of Soho.
Produced in partnership with Fane Productions, Live At Zédel’s September programme features a wide range of music, theatre, comedy and literary events.
