Full cast and creative team have been announced for the upcoming world premiere of new musical Reputation, playing at The Other Palace later this year.
It has been announced that Jeremy Secomb (Sweeney in the West End Pie Shop ‘Sweeney Todd’ and Javert in ‘Les Miserables’, 2015-2017), Maddy Banks (‘The Band’ West End and UK tour) and Ed Wade (currently in ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ in the West End) head the cast and will be joined by Cory Peterson, Lauren Ingram, Charlie Dennis, Ashleigh Cavanagh and Eleanor Tollan.
Hollywood in the late 1930’s: a time when the major studios are struggling to feed the insatiable worldwide demand for new talkies. Freddy Larceny is a con artist running a scam to pass-off the work of new writers as his own. He strikes gold when Michelle Grant, an aspiring novelist and student at a Paris language and deportment college, spots his advertisement in the ‘Variety’ trade newspaper. Larceny plagiarises her script for a film – credited to him as writer – that then goes on to receive an Oscar nomination.
The musical will feature 25 original songs composed by Alick Glass, who has also written the book. This world premiere production will be directed by Warren Wills with choreography by Tamsyn Salter and lighting by Nick Richings.
