The mods are still in fashion. After previous London runs at The Vaults and extensive touring, ALL OR NOTHING – THE MOD MUSICAL will move direct from its current five-week season at the Arts Theatre to ten weeks at the West End's Ambassadors Theatre. Is that anywhere near Itchycoo Park?
ALL OR NOTHING – THE MOD MUSICAL, with book by Carol Harrison and music and lyrics by the Small Faces, will transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre in London’s West End following its current five-week sell-out season at the Arts Theatre. The ten-week run at the Ambassadors Theatre will begin on Wednesday 28 March 2018 with a Gala Night, and will run until Saturday 2 June 2018. Tickets are now on sale.
ALL OR NOTHING is the story of four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and, above all, talent. They became the Small Faces and were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy.
In 1965, a new phenomenon erupted out of London’s East End. It was the essence of all that was cool. It was Mod. ALL OR NOTHING follows the rise and demise of the Small Faces, the band who encapsulated all that was Mod – a unique blend of taste and testosterone, clothes-obsessed and street-wise – but most of all, a dedication to rhythm ‘n’ blues.
The musical celebrates the unique sound of this iconic Mod band, with all the Small Faces’ hits, including Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Itchycoo Park and, of course, All or Nothing.
The cast at the Ambassadors Theatre will be led by Carol Harrison as Kay Marriott and Chris Simmons as Steve Marriott. The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer P.P. Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter, Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach and creative consultant.
ALL OR NOTHING is directed by Carol Harrison, with set design by Rebecca Brower, lighting design by Peter Small, sound design by Chris Drohan, choreography by Cameron Hall and musical supervision by Pat Davey. It is produced in the West End by Rock ‘n’ Roll Productions.
