Lambert Jackson Productions have announced that their production of Jason Robert Brown’s musical will transfer to the Vaudeville Theatre from the 9th February.
Directed by Séimí Campbell, the production is set to see David Hunter (Man 2), Rachel John (Woman 1), Cedric Neal (Man 1), Rachel Tucker (Woman 2) and Shem Omari James (Featured Role) reprising their roles in the show.
The news follows on from the successful show at the London Palladium in early October, where it was the first new musical to be staged in the West End since the Covid-19 pandemic.
It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown, this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.
This production of Songs For a New World will feature musical direction by Josh Winstone, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins, lighting design by Jack Knowles, sound design by Jonny Dickie of Robins Audio and design consultancy by Madeleine Girling.
Talking about the news Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson, CEO and Creative Director of Lambert Jackson Productions, today said, “This show garnered a huge amount of critical acclaim when it played the London Palladium in early October, and we are hugely grateful to the brilliant team at Nimax for working with us to bring this phenomenal production to the Vaudeville. The show reflects so brilliantly all that is happening in our world right now, whilst also providing hope and light in a time where so many theatre fans are feeling the effect that the pandemic has had on our industry. We can’t wait for more people to see this production in all its glory in a West End run.”
Songs For a New World will run at the Vaudeville Theatre from the 5th February until the 7th March. To book tickets visit Love Theatre.com, From the Box Office, London Theatre Direct or Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk.
