A rock star, trapped in eternal adolescence, wants to change the course of his life and discover
love. But, can you find love if you’ve sold your soul to the Devil? Whilst sitting for the eccentric
society painter, Basil Hallward, Dorian is discovered by the influential Lord Henry and is soon
under the spell of this dangerous, charismatic music impresario. Dorian, the secret child of love
and death, is suddenly thrust into a confusing world where love dare not speak its name.
The musical (filmed and streamed at Cadogan Hall) features music and lyrics by Joe Evans, with the creative team including: lighting by Jai Morjaria, costume design by Belle Mundi, movement direction by Anthony Whiteman and assistant movement direction by Penelope Simons.
Talking about being part of the production, Bart Lambert said: “I’m so excited to be part of this project, it’s always a pleasure to shed a new light on a classic story, and the evocative world of Dorian Gray is the most pleasurable of
them all. After the year we’ve had I think we can all do with a bit of Rock and Roll right now!”
