Georgia Stitt, the American composer and lyricist whose shows include Big Red Sun, The Danger Year and Mosaic, will play a one-night-only concert at London’s Garrick Theatre later this month.
The musician, who is married to fellow musical writer Jason Robert Brown, will be joined on 26 October by a host of West End regulars including I Can’t Sing!’s Simon Bailey and Cynthia Erivo, Miss Saigon leading lady Eva Noblezada, former Mamma Mia! and Les Misérables star Caroline Sheen, Dogfight’s Jamie Muscato, and Norman Bowman, who recently appeared in Kenneth Branagh’s New York staging of Macbeth.
Stitt, who has released albums including This Ordinary Thursday, Alphabet City Cycle and My Lifelong Love, after which her concert is named, will also be supported by a five-piece band and a choir from Arts Ed.
My Lifelong Love – An Evening With Georgia Stitt And Friends plays at the Garrick on the one day of the week that the venue does not host a performance of acclaimed, Olivier Award nominated musical The Scottsboro Boys. Written by the team behind Chicago and Cabaret, Kander and Ebb, the harrowing musical tells the true story of nine young black men falsely accused of rape in 1931 Alabama.
