The new musical will run at the theatre from the 6th to the 18th June.
Based on an original idea by Patrick Ehmcke-Kennedy and Stephanie Martin, Fury and Elysium features a book by Stephanie Martin (Juniper and Jules, Soho Theatre; Passion Fruit, New Diorama Theatre) and music and lyrics by renowned singer-songwriter Calista Kazuko Georget and will run at The Other Palace for a strictly limited run.
Co-directed by Rafaella Marcus (SAP, Soho Theatre & UK Tour; Emilia, Vaudeville Theatre) & Karoline Gable (Oslo, National Theatre/West End), the musical pays homage to six highly influential Weimar Republic icons who put their idiosyncratic stamp on Berlin during a period of radical change, rebellious spirit and boldness between the two world wars. With a particular focus on placing centre stage the fascinating lives of three Jewish women.
The cast for this new musical will include: Iz Hesketh (Legally Blonde, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre; Head over Heels, Manchester Hope Mill Theatre), Rosie Yadid (Bad Jews, Arts Theatre), Ashley Goh (The Phase, VAULT Festival; Red Riding Hood, Theatre Royal Stratford East), Maya Kristal Tenenbaum (The Band’s Visit, Donmar Warehouse) and Michal Horowicz (The Band’s Visit, Donmar Warehouse; Amsterdam, Orange Tree Theatre) and Danielle Steers (Bat Out of Hell, Six, The Cher Show).
Talking about the production, co-director Rafaella Marcus says “I’m thrilled to be working on this new musical about some of the extraordinary Jewish, queer and trans people who lived and made art in the darkest of times. I can’t wait to bring Stephanie and Calista’s bold, furious, playful work to audiences who in turn might be inspired to find resistance in art, together with my co-director Karoline and this fantastic cast of Jewish and queer artists.”
