An in-person staging of Jason Robert Brown’s Songs for a New World is set to play two performances at the London Palladium October 11. The one-day-only event is the first musical to return to the West End since theatres shut down in March due to COVID-19.
Olivier nominees Rachel John (Hamilton) and Rachel Tucker (Come From Away) and Cedric Neal (Motown) all return from a digital production streamed earlier this summer, with David Hunter (Waitress) joining the cast.
Directed by Séimí Campbell, the production will follow current COVID-19 government guidance, including social distancing and face masks for audiences.
Songs for a New World is presented by Lambert Jackson Productions, with Adam Hoskins serving as musical director.
