05 Mar 2014
West End and Broadway writing team George Stiles and Anthony Drewe and Broadway's Gavin Creel, who is currently headlining the West End production of The Book of Mormon as Elder Price, will appear at London's Charing Cross Theatre March 9 and April 20, respectively, in Singular Sensations, in which they will be interviewed by Edward Seckerson on their careers.
According to press materials, through a mix of chat, recordings and live performances, Seckerson will trace their careers and uncover their working processes.
Stiles and Drewe, whose credits include additional songs for Mary Poppins and who are about to be represented on the U.K. touring circuit by a new production of Betty Blue Eyes being launched this month, will be joined March 9 by guests that include "X Factor" finalist Cassie Compton, Anna Jane Casey, Michael Jibson and Caroline Sheen.
Creel, who has also appeared on the West End stage in Hair and Mary Poppins, has been Tony-nominated for his appearances on Broadway in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Hair. He will appear April 20 in conversation illustrating highlights of his career with the help of a selection of recordings. This is a charity event in support of his nominated charity West End Serves.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
