If there’s one thing we love, it’s seeing rehearsal photos of an upcoming West End show (we’re nosy, we can’t help it!). And so Leave To Remain have answered our prayers by sharing some behind-the-scenes snaps as their rehearsals get underway.
Written by Matt Jones (Mr Selfridge, Doctor Who and Torchwood), with 14 original songs by Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, the show focuses on the story of a young gay couple, Obi and Alex, who are unexpectedly faced with an uncertain future when Alex’s visa is questioned.
Follow their incredible journey, triumphs and turmoil, through music, drama and movement, as the production explores the effects of one couple’s marriage, and what happens when it begins to fracture both their families.
Tyrone Huntley is playing the role of Obi. Tyrone was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar (Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre)
While Billy Cullum is playing Alex, and he’s previously appeared in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda the Musical, and most recently the critically acclaimed Little Shop of Horrors (Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre).
Other cast members include Emma Amos, Aretha Ayeh, Rakie Ayola, Sandy Batchelor, Arun Blair-Mangat and Cornell S. John.
Directed by Robby Graham, (Artistic Director of Southpaw Dance Company), Leave to Remain arrives at the Lyric Hammersmith on Thursday 24 January (with previews from Friday 18 January).
