Ride Reviews at Charing Cross Theatre ★★★★
Reviews have started to come in for RIDE- A New Musical at Charing Cross Theatre by Freya Catrin Smith and Jack Williams, and directed by Sarah Meadows. The cast includes Liv Andrusier (Annie Londonderry), Yuki Sutton (Martha), and Amy Parker (Alternate Annie / Cover Martha). The musical is set in 1895, and Annie Londonderry has returned victorious to America, hailed as the first woman ever to cycle around the world. She’s pioneering, she’s plucky, and she’s pitching her story to the men who run the newspapers. From the infamous wager that set her journey in motion, to her freewheeling adventures with captains, cowboys, and customs officials, Annie just knows her tales will spin readers into a frenzy.  But as she approaches rough terrain, and unexpected paths throw her off balance, can Annie regain her footing, or will she confront the past she left behind?  Ride was nominated for the Best Musical Theatre Book Writing in the 2022 Writers Guild Awards, and the title song from the show nominated for the 2020 Stiles and Drewe Best New Song Prize. The show is designed by Amy Jane Cook, with choreography/movement by Natasha Harrison, musical direction by Sam Young, orchestrations by Macy Schmidt, lighting design by Jamie Platt, sound design by Andy Johnson, assistant direction by Olivia Munk, and DEM Productions as Producer and General Manager. Ride is playing at the Charing Cross Theatre until 17 September 2022. More reviews to follow. Book tickets to RIDE - A New Musical at Charing Cross Theatre in London
