Reviews of Cages

“All grounded in beautiful music and a glorious story. A story of heart. A story of shared humanity. A story for our times right now.” - Forbes
“The songs have a pulsating bass, infectious hooks and a sumptuous serving of auto-tune… These earworms echo the aural aesthetics of Muse, Daft Punk, Ellie Goulding, Sufjan Stevens and Kanye West — if they were accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra.” - LA Times

CAGES to premiere at the Riverside Studios in London
Hit Los Angeles show Cages is to play the Riverside Studios in London this September for a strictly limited run. Performances will take place from 13 September 2022 to 1 January 2023. Cages is billed as an intimate and mysterious gothic romance, promising to be an utterly unique live experience presenting a mind-bending, technologically innovative visual spectacle. The show weaves state-of-the-art 3D video and animation with live performance and original songs into a rock opera for the modern age. Music and lyrics for the show are composed, produced, and arranged by creators CJ Baran and Benjamin Romans. CJ Baran also performs in the show.. Producers and Co-directors, Scenario Two Anthony Lilley and John Berry, said: "When we first saw Cages - even on a shaky video taken in Los Angeles in the final days before lockdown in 2020 - we were pretty sure it was something special. The pandemic meant that it took almost a year and a half before we were able to travel to the US to see it in person and then we were in absolutely no doubt. It blew us away. This was an amazing live show, like nothing we had ever seen or heard. Full of heart and soul, beautiful music, and state-of-the-art technology, spectacularly done. "And so, as soon as we possibly could, we have brought it to London to introduce UK audiences to Woolf and the Wondershow's ground-breaking combination of live performance, cinematic effects, holographic and immersive sound. We couldn't be more excited." More information about Cages at Riverside Studios London
