1965. A new phenomenon erupted out of London’s East End. It was the essence of all that was cool. It was Mod.
All Or Nothing – The Mod Musical follows the rise and demise of Small Faces, the band who encapsulated all that was mod – a unique blend of taste and testosterone, clothes-obsessed and street-wise – but most of all, a dedication to rhythm ‘n’ blues.
This stunning new home-grown musical celebrates the unique mod sound including an arsenal of brilliant hits like Whatcha Gonna Do About It, All Or Nothing, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Here Comes the Nice and Itchycoo Park.
The cast for the musical’s run at the Ambassadors Theatre will be led by Carol Harrison as Kay Marriott and Chris Simmons as Steve Marriott.
Carol Harrison is best known for her role in Eastenders. Her stage credits includes Michael Rudman’s production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman at the National, Ripen Our Darkness at the Royal Court, Alan Parker’s production of Alfie at the Liverpool Playhouse and Lee Hall’s Cooking with Elvis at the Lyceum Theatre, Crewe.
Chris Simmons is well known to television audiences for having played the role of DC Mickey Webb for over twelve years in the long running ITV series The Bill.
