The Wit and Whimsy of Alexander S. Bermange is returning to the St James Theatre, London on Sunday 2 February, following its sell-out success in July 2013.
Bermange has received recognition for his stage musicals (including, in the last year, Thirteen Days at the Arcola Theatre, The Route to Happiness at the Landor Theatre, and The 24 Hour Musicals at the Old Vic) and is known as the resident comic songwriter and performer on BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House and the BBC World Service’s Weekend. His funny songs have not only amused national and international radio audiences, but have also acquired a following through performances and recordings by the likes of Kit & The Widow, 4 Poofs and a Piano, and dozens of West End artists.
The Wit and Whimsy of Alexander S. Bermange is an opportunity to see the writer perform some of his best-loved – and premiere some brand new – comedic musical creations, from ‘tributes” to David Beckham, Prince Harry and Great Britain, to portraits of second-rate singers, tube-travelling trainspotters, and perverted pensioners.
Bermange will be joined on stage by special guest West End leading ladies Julie Atherton (Avenue Q, Sister Act, Mamma Mia!) and Cassidy Janson (Avenue Q, Wicked, Candide). The show is directed by Michael Strassen (whose credits include Ruthie Henshall’s one-woman show at the Hippodrome, and Assassins and The Fix at the Union Theatre).
The Wit and Whimsy of Alexander S. Bermange is being performed on Sunday 2 February at 7.30pm at the St James Theatre.
