Interval Productions have announced casting for their new musical, ‘Muted’, and it truly is a stellar line up. An earlier draft of Muted, entitled ‘After the Turn’, previewed at The Courtyard Theatre in 2012 with a sell out run. After the Turn received a Broadway World nomination for Best Fringe or Regional Musical and a What’s On Stage Award nomination for Best New Musical.]It has since been re-written, re-titled and developed with a West End cast ready to share with you on the album and live at the concert launch on the 4th February.
The music is written by Tim Prottey-Jones, who’s recent album ‘To Do, To Be’ was described by West End Frame as “an exceptional collection of material” stating that “new British writing just got exciting again”. The concert version of the show will be directed by up-and-coming director Jamie Jackson, who recently directed the concert version of musical ‘The Natives’ for the Old Vic New Voices and was nominated for an Off West End award for Best Director for his show ‘WINK’ at Theatre 503,
Interval Productions have become well known for shaking up the form of musical theatre and bringing it up to date, having created four brand new multi-award-nominated musicals in four years. Most recently their show ‘Streets’ – nominated for Offies for Best New Musical and Most Promising Playwrights (Sarah Henley and Tori Allen-Martin) transferred to the Hackney Empire and The Vaults.
The cast includes Ashleigh Gray, fresh from playing Elpheba in ‘WICKED’ and Liam Doyle who has been starring in the world tour of ‘GHOST’. Andy Coxon from ‘BEAUTIFUL’ also joins the cast along with Tori Allen-Martin who also wrote many of the lyrics. Steven Webb mesmerised audiences last year in ‘AS IS’ at Trafalgar Studios and completes the impressive line-up.
Interval are raising money for the album, which they hope will garner interest from producers to take the show further, on Kickstarter. There are some awesome rewards available including a song written especially for you by Tori and Tim. Here’s their funding page https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1937765734/muted-the-album
