Hi guys, today I will be talking about a new upcoming musical, soon to be performed at the Stockwell Playhouse in London on the 11th and 12th August.
The show is called Unfolding Tales, and tells the inspiring true story of war, friendship and courage, inspired by the life of the author J.R.R. Tolkien. The show has Music and Lyrics written by Joe Purdue, a Book by Claire Gibson, PR run by MTAS (Musical Theatre Appreciation Society) and is Directed by Adam Haigh.
This show did a limited run at the Arts Theatre in London last year, and received great reviews. The team then have since developed the musical even further with new songs, ready to show off to their new audience later this year.
The premise of this musical, is unlike anything I have ever heard of, which really intrigued me because i’m a lover of the basic musical theatre shows. But this show’s soundtrack is phenomenal, and really had me wanting more.
Some of my favorite songs were, Deepest Secrets, Life Goes On and Our Perfect Lives.
The vocalists on this Cast Recording, did an amazing job of portraying the emotions that the characters were going through, and the orchestrations of the songs were absolute perfection.
The cast for the upcoming production this August will definitely not disappoint, with some amazing musical theatre names in there such as the incredibly talented, Jodie Steele and Liam Doyle, both stars of the hit musical Wicked. Jodie will be playing the role of Mabel Tolkien and Liam will be staring as J.R.R. Tolkien.
As well as these fabulous people, the cast also consists of 16 other AMAZING performers who are guaranteed to shine on the stage.
