There will be two live performances only of Jason Robert Brown’s Songs For A New World at The London Palladium on 11 October. Séimí Campbell directs David Hunter (Waitress), Rachel John (Hamilton), Cedric Neal (Motown), Rachel Tucker (Come From Away) and Shem Omari James in a return for musical theatre to West End.
“It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back.”
Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and sitting between musical and song cycle, this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love, and the choices that we make as it transports audiences through time and space.
Lambert Jackson Productions staged a virtual performance of Songs For a New World during lockdown, in association with The Other Palace, as part of a commitment to provide work paid work for performers during the pandemic. They also staged a successful virtual concert series – Leave a Light On, as well as several one-off concerts.
Directed by the brilliant Séimí Campbell (Songs For A New World, The London Palladium), with music direction by Adam Hoskins (Doctor Zhivago), this beautiful song cycle will be brought to life by this incredible cast at the Vaudeville Theatre for a limited five-week run.
