Cabaret performer Tim McArthur celebrates his 25-year stage career with a brand new show on 1 October at London’s St James Studio.
Accompanied by a four-piece band, McArthur’s first solo cabaret performance in two years, Mountains, is a celebration of songs from the musical theatre world.
Apart from the show’s title song ‘Mountains’ (Mrs Henderson Presents), McArthur will perform pieces from a number of current hit musicals including Matilda and Waitress. The performer has also been granted permission by musical and film songwriter Robert Sherman to sing ‘Comes A-Long A-Love’, the last song to be written by Sherman’s father Al, one of the famous Tin Pan Alley songwriters.
When not interviewing the great and the good theatreland, he might be directing them, writing and devising new works, or performing himself. He programmes and hosts The Sondheim Society’s monthly London shows, curates and hosts the variety show Sister Mary’s Big Night Out at The Cockpit Theatre and recently released his debut album Don’t Be Anything Less.
McArthur last performed a solo show in 2014 in Malaysia where he became the first international artist invited to play the Theatre Lounge Café in Kuala Lumpar. He is currently devising a new musical with composer Tony Hatch.
