The U.K. premiere of Tony nominee Dave Malloy’s Preludes began performances at London’s Southwark Playhouse September 6. The production, directed by Alex Sutton, is scheduled to play through October 12.
Based on the true story of Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff, Preludes examines the powerful effects of the dramatic and musical process by chronicling Rachmaninoff’s sessions of hypnotherapy in the wake of a disastrous world premiere. The production stars Rebecca Caine, Norton James, Georgia Louise, Tom Noyes, Keith Ramsay, and Tim Walton.
The production features choreography by Ste Clough, set and costume design by Rebecca Brower, lighting designs by Christopher Nairne, sound design by Andrew Johnson, and musical direction by Jordan Li-Smith.
