It has been announced that multi-award-winning composer and lyricist Alexander S. Bermange’s musical Thirteen Days will play at the Leicester Square Theatre on the 17th March.
The musical will have its gala performance at the Leicester Square Theatre in aid of the MAD Trust on the 17th March 2019 to raise funds for those living with or affected by HIV and AIDS both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Thirteen Days follows the lives of three lovers, three leaders and three nations during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 – the closest the world has come to being wiped out by nuclear war – by means of a score that fuses Western, Eastern and Latin musical styles.
This gala concert performance is set to feature an all-star West End cast (to be confirmed) and will be directed by Dominic Shaw. The music team includes Mike Dixon (Musical Consultant), Paul Bateman (Original Orchestrations) and Jerome van den Berghe (New Orchestrations).
Composer Alexander S. Bermange’s credits include many musicals produced in the UK and internationally – including I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical, which enjoyed two award-winning London runs in 2018 – and comic songs for the BBC and for the chart-topping album Wit & Whimsy.
Thirteen Days will be performed at the Leicester Square Theatre on the 17th March.
