Leading West End musical theatre stars David Hunter (Waitress, Kinky Boots), Rachel John (Hamilton), Rachel Tucker (Come From Away, Wicked), Cedric Neal (Back to the Future, Motown The Musical) and Shem Omari James will star in Songs for a New World at the Vaudeville Theatre in February 2021.
Directed by the Séimí Campbell (My Son Pinocchio – Southwark Playhouse) the production previously ran at the London Palladium for two socially distanced performances in October and was presented digitally earlier in the year.
Jason Robert Brown’s acclaimed song/cycle musical is a moving collection of powerful songs that examine life, love and the choices that we make.
The production features musical direction by Josh Winstone, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins, lighting design by Jack Knowles, sound design by Jonny Dickie of Robins Audio and design consultancy by Madeleine Girling.
Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson, chief executive and creative director of producer Lambert Jackson Productions, said: “This show garnered a huge amount of critical acclaim when it played the London Palladium in early October, and we are hugely grateful to the brilliant team at Nimax for working with us to bring this phenomenal production to the Vaudeville.“
“The show reflects so brilliantly all that is happening in our world right now, while also providing hope and light in a time where so many theatre fans are feeling the effect that the pandemic has had on our industry.”
Songs for a New World will run from 5 February 2021 until 7 March 2021, with an official opening night on 9 February 2021.
