New Frame Productions’ West End Acoustic will stream online with Stream.Theatre, following a one night performance at Riverside Studios last year.
West End Acoustic features SIX’s Maiya Quansah-Breed and Renée Lamb, Wicked’s Nicholas McLean, Jesus Christ Superstar’s Tyrone Huntley and Dear Evan Hansen’s Oliver Award-winning Sam Tutty. The show was performed for one night only in front of a live audience on 8 December 2020.
This star-studded cast came together at Riverside Studios for an unplugged celebration of all the most popular musicals. With musical direction and keys by Chris Poon alongside Sofie Veie on guitar, the show features songs from Dear Evan Hansen, Six, Little Shop of Horrors, West Side Story, Girl From The North Country, The Wiz, Jagged Little Pill and many more.
The production will now be made available online with stream.theatre for a limited run of 4 performances scheduled between 15 to 18 April. With lighting design by Zoe Spurr and sound design by Harry Barker, the production was filmed and edited by JW Productions.
James Quaife and Robin Rayner of New Frame Productions today said: “We are thrilled that this wonderful show can have a further life and will now be seen by audiences on stream.theatre. The energy in the room back in December during West End Acoustic was just electric. Everyone was so excited to be at the theatre and experiencing live performance after such a long time. We are indebted to all the performers and creative people who worked with us on our season at Riverside Studios – the professionalism, energy and talent was off the charts. We can’t wait for audiences all over the globe to enjoy this special evening of musical theatre.”
