Who's joining Samantha Barks and Arthur Darvill in the London Musical Theatre Orchestra stellar concert presentation of Broadway musical HONEYMOON IN VEGAS? This is one night at the London Palladium not to be missed. (And you could win tickets through #StageFaves if you're lucky!)
The 30-strong London Musical Theatre Orchestra takes to the London Palladium stage on Sunday 12 March 2017 under the baton of its first guest conductor, the show’s composer Jason Robert Brown, to honour the stylish and swinging score of the 2015 Broadway musical HONEYMOON IN VEGAS, which marks another much anticipated UK premiere for the orchestra.
Full casting has now been announced for this first concert of LMTO’s 2017 season. Joining previously announced principal cast members Samantha Barks (Betsy) and Arthur Darvill (Jack) will be: Maxwell Caulfield (Tommy), Rosemary Ashe (Bea), Nicolas Colicos (Johnny) and Simon Lipkin (Buddy), with supporting roles played by Daniel Amity, Maisey Bawden and Hywel Dowsell.
Other roles in the production will be played by members of the LMTO chorus, including: Will Arundell, Lizzie Bea, Austen Garrett, Alice Gruden, Charlotte Kennedy, Richard James King, Emma Kingston, Lauren Lockley, Laura Messin, Oliver Stanley and Samuel Thomas (nominated in this year’s #AlsoRecognised Awards on MyTheatreMates for London Newcomer of the Year for Floyd Collins).
Based on the hit 1992 film starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicholas Cage, HONEYMOON IN VEGAS tells the story of mild-mannered Brooklynite, Jack, who haunted by the fear of a promise to his dying mother never to get married, avoids proposing to his new girlfriend Betsy. He finally summons the nerve and takes Betsy to Las Vegas only to have his plans compromised by a dashing gambler with an eye for luxury and Jack’s new fiancée.
HONEYMOON IN VEGAS has a book by Andrew Bergman and score by Tony-Award winning Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Songs For A New World, The Last Five Years and The Bridges of Madison County). The musical had its Broadway premiere in 2015 at New York’s Nederlander Theatre. This concert will see it performed in London for the very first time. The evening is directed by Shaun Kerrison, who also directed LMTO’s A Christmas Carol, which starred Robert Lindsay and Carrie Hope Fletcher in December.
