The cast has been announced for new entertainment show Cages at the Riverside Studios in London.
The hit LA show will start performances in London on 13 September 2022, running until 1 January 2023.
Cages stars CJ Baran as Woolf and Benjamin J Romans as Wondershow, both of whom also created the show and wrote the music and lyrics. Jack Butterworth will take over as Woolf from 23 October 2022.
The ensemble includes Adriam Falconcer, Ashley Rowe, Gracie Hancock, Greg Oliver (and cover Woolf), Siobhan James and Talia Palamathanan. Swings include Matt Holland.
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.
Cages is produced and co-directed by Scenario Two’s Anthony Lilley and John Berry, who recently co-produced Into the Woods at the Theatre Royal Bath.
Lilley and Berry recently said how they were blown away after seeing Cages in the US: “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.”
