Four West End veterans star in a filmed version of the cult favorite musical [title of show], staged in the chorus rehearsal room of the London Coliseum and available to stream beginning November 12. The production features Marc Elliot (City of Angels) as Jeff, Olivier nominee Tyrone Huntley (Jesus Christ Superstar) as Hunter, Lucie Jones (Waitress) as Heidi, and Olivier winner and Tony nominee Jenna Russell (Sunday in the Park With George) as Susan.
Josh Seymour directs, with Ben Ferguson taking on the role of onstage music director Larry.
The show, the result of two guys (composer Jeff Bowen and book writer Hunter Bell) writing a musical about two guys writing a musical about two guys writing a musical, will be accessible through November 14. Tickets are on sale at LondonColiseum.org.
The venue produces alongside Lambert Jackson Productions, which was also behind the recent virtual presentations of The Last Five Years and Songs for a New World. The latter recently became the first musical to play the West End since the coronavirus-caused shutdown, taking the stage at the London Palladium October 11.
