The producers of FIVER, the sell-out hit musical are releasing a cast album in March. The album, titled Fiver (Live Concert Recording), is the product of three special, live-streamed concert versions of the show, which played to a global audience in 2020.
FIVER follows the story of a humble £5 note as it passes through the hands and pockets of different people. Often unnoticed, and obviously unaware, the fiver is witness to significant moments in each character’s life – from an appreciation of their skills as a street performer, the start or end of relationships, to the simple realisation that they can afford a bed for the night.
The November concerts saw the return of the 2019 cast, which includes Alex James Ellison, who co-wrote the show with Musical Director, Tom Lees.
Also in the show are Luke Bayer (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Aoife Clesham (Peter Pan International Tour), Dan Buckley (Eugenius!), and Hiba Elchikhe (Aladdin).
The show was nominated for three West End Wilma Awards, in which Luke Bayer won ‘Best Actor’ for his performance.
Fans have been demanding a cast recording since the original 2019 run at Southwark Playhouse. This live recording should satisfy them, with 25 tracks capturing the magic of the concert livestreams.
The album is available for pre-order now on iTunes and on CD and will be released on Friday 5 March.
100 exclusive CD’s are available from www.fivermusical.co.uk and come with a free FIVER poster signed by the cast.
There will be an Instagram Live Listening Party on Thursday 4 March at 7:30pm featuring members of the cast and special guests, during which fans can ask questions and learn more about the history and development of the show whilst enjoying an exclusive listen to the album.
