It has been confirmed that Peter Polycarpou and Sally Ann Triplett’s song cycle will be presented digitally for audiences from the 22nd November.
Following the announcement that England was heading into lockdown, the company of Falling Stars were able to quickly come together to record a film adaptation of the show.
The show is set to be streamed from the 22nd to the 29th November to offer audiences the opportunity to experience the 1920s revelry from their own home during lockdown.
Falling Stars is the charming story of a lost songbook; hidden away in an antique shop on theEast Finchley High Road, its discovery unlocks the beautiful refrains of a bygone era. Conceived and written by Polycarpou, the song cycle is an homage to the composers, collaborators, and
publishers of the 1920s, who created some of the greatest music of all time.
This song cycle will see Peter Polycarpou and Sally Ann Triplett performing the music of Charlie Chaplin, Irving Berlin, Buddy De-Silva, Ray Henderson, Vincent Youmans, Carl Schraubstader, Arthur Freed, and Meredith Wilson. The production is directed by by Michael Strassen (Godspell 50th Anniversary concert; Billy; Assassins).
Those who had originally booked tickets to see the show live can either transfer their booking to the newly rescheduled dates in January (9th and 10th), switch their ticket to a streaming option and donate the difference to the production and the Union Theatre, or receive a full refund. Please contact the Union Theatre’s box office on firstname.lastname@example.org to make the necessary changes.
Producer Thomas Hopkins of Ginger Quiff Media said: “We’re incredibly grateful to stream.theatre for stepping in to support us and facilitate our production. Once again this gives us hope in this crazy world that we are living in, that our theatrical community will come together to support
each other through different mediums such as streaming, as the show must go on!”
