Lambert Jackson Productions and the Theatre Café yesterday announced an initiative to keep actors in paid work during the theatre closures. Leave a Light On will be an extensive series of intimate, piano vocal concerts streamed live from The Theatre Café to audiences for a small affordable fee.
The concerts will range from performers with huge, established followings to performers who may have only just started in theatre.
Starting next Monday 23 March, three 45-minute concerts will take place each day, aimed not only to provide financial support for the performers involved, but also to provide entertainment for people in self-isolation.
Lambert Jackson Productions and The Theatre Café today said “We are so excited about this project. This is a really dark time for the theatre world and we want to help wherever we can, as much as possible. The idea that people who are self-isolating can help performers who have lost all of their work is a really beautiful thing, and also speaks volumes about our amazing industry and the community it fosters”
