News   New York Theatre Writers Sam Carner and Derek Gregor to Make London Concert Debut with Sing But Don't Tell New York theatre writers Sam Carner and Derek Gregor will make their London debut March 24 at the London Hippodrome's Matcham Room in Sing But Don't Tell, a concert of their songs with a line-up of London-based talent that includes Keith Jack, Julie Atherton, Mark Rice-Oxley, Abigail Jaye and Hugo Harold-Harrison.

Other singers include Tamar Broadbent, Stephen Rolley, Maria Coyne, Abigail Matthews, Reuben Kaye and Belle Hayward.

The evening will feature songs from Carner and Gregor's Richard Rodgers Award-winning musical Unlock'd, subsequently produced at NYMF 2007 and workshopped at Palo Alto's Theatre Works and the Ravinia Festival near Chicago, as well as Island Song, a song cycle that was presented at the 92nd Street Y in October 2011. Sing But Don't Tell has previously been presented at NYMF in 2009. Buzzed, a 2010 concert of their work, featured 12 cast members from Broadway's Hair.

Separately, Carner has written children's musicals What a Cat! and Barnyard Follies, a one-act play Brady and a college musical Just Call me Eli! at Yale University. Gregor writes country music with Laura Bell Bundy; he also founded the rock band M-Lab, whose album "A Bold and Hopeful Spark" is now available.

Jack was the runner up on the BBC's "Any Dream Will Do" to find a star to play the title role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in the West End. He has subsequently played the role extensively in the UK touring production. He has released two albums, "This Time" and "An Evening at the Musicals."

Atherton's West End credits include Mamma Mia!, the original London cast of Avenue Q and Sister Act. She was recently seen in Lift at Soho Theatre and is currently appearing in The Hired Man at Colchester's Mercury Theatre, which will subsequently transfer to Leicester's Curve. She has released two solo albums, "No Space for Air" and "A Girl of Few Words." Rice-Oxley made his West End debut last year in Blood Brothers and can be seen in the forthcoming BBC drama "WPC56."

Jaye is currently appearing in the 40th anniversary production of The Rocky Horror Show, having previously spent 18 months playing the title role in Evita around Europe. 

Harold-Harrison has appeared in the West End in Fame and Priscilla Queen of the Desert as well as UK tours of Grease and Oh What a Night!
