London’s Theatre Café and Lambert Jackson Production respond to the closure of UK theatres with Leave a Light On – a series of live streamed performances from the venue to keep actors in paid work during these uncertain times.
The piano vocal concerts will range from performers with huge, established followings to performers who may have only just started in theatre.
The line up for the first week includes Layton Williams, Lucie Jones, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, David Hunter, Aimie Atkinson, Evelyn Hoskins, Cassidy Janson and Alice Fearn.
Starting next Monday 23 March, three 45-minute concerts will take place each day, aimed not only to provide financial support for the performers involved, but also to provide entertainment for people in self-isolation.
Lambert Jackson Productions and The Theatre Café today said “We are so excited about this project. This is a really dark time for the theatre world and we want to help wherever we can, as much as possible. The idea that people who are self-isolating can help performers who have lost all of their work is a really beautiful thing, and also speaks volumes about our amazing industry and the community it fosters”.
The event organisers will be working to ensure the health and safety all involved.
The lineup for week 1 is as follows:
The link for the live-stream events will be announced soon.
