The revival of Stephen Sondheim’s musical will begin performances at the Southwark Playhouse from the 1st April.

A new video has been released of the cast in rehearsal for the upcoming revival of Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents’ 1964 musical, which will play at the Southwark Playhouse for a limited season next month.

They will be joined by Danny Lane as Comptroller Schub,Samuel Clifford as Treasurer Cooley, Renan Teodoro as Chief of Police Magrueder, Nathan Taylor as Dr Detmold, Kathryn Akin as Mrs Schroeder, Marisha Morgan (She/Her) as Baby Joan Teddy Hinde as John, Hana Ichijo as June,Shane Convery as George and Jensen Tudtud as Martin.

Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents’ 1964 musical is a political satire about conformity and the ostracisation of those considered ‘other’ in society. Set in a fictional town where the government controls everything, even the miracles, this fast paced and off-the-wall musical is as hilarious as it is subversive.

The creative team behind this production includes: Musical Director Natalie Pound, Choreographer Lisa Stevens, Orchestrations by Charlie Ingles, Original Orchestrations by Don Walker,
Set and Costume Designer Cory Shipp, Lighting Designer Alex Musgrave, Assistant Director Alex Conder. The show is produced by The Grey Area and  Liam McIntosh Entertainment.
