Following a third, critically acclaimed, sell-out tour, All Or Nothing – The Mod Musical, based on the story of the Small Faces, will be at the Arts Theatre from 6 February to 11 March 2018, with a press night on Thursday 8 February. All Or Nothing also proudly announces the release of a 29-track cast recording, as well as a limited edition 15-track blue vinyl LP.
Written and directed by the award-winning actress Carol Harrison, All Or Nothing is the story of four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and, above all, talent. They became the Small Faces and were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy. The cast at the Arts Theatre will be led by Carol Harrison as Kay Marriott and Chris Simmons as the older Steve Marriott.
In 1965, a new phenomenon erupted out of London’s East End. It was the essence of all that was cool. It was Mod. All Or Nothing follows the rise and demise of the Small Faces, the band who encapsulated all that was Mod – a unique blend of taste and testosterone, clothes-obsessed and street-wise – but most of all, a dedication to rhythm ‘n’ blues. The musical celebrates the unique sound of this iconic Mod band, with all the Small Faces hits, including Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Here Comes the Nice, Itchycoo Park and, of course, All or Nothing. The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer P.P. Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter, Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach and creative consultant.
