Jason Robert Brown’s Songs For A New World to play live at The London Palladium next month

Jason Robert Brown’s Songs For A New World will play live at The London Palladium on 11 October.

Directed by Séimí Campbell, the show will feature David Hunter, Rachel John, Cedric Neal and Rachel Tucker for two performances only in a return for musical theatre to West End. The show will also feature Shem Omari James.

“It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back.”

Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and sitting between musical and song cycle, this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love, and the choices that we make as it transports audiences through time and space.

Lambert Jackson Productions staged a virtual performance of Songs For a New World during lockdown, in association with The Other Palace, as part of a commitment to provide work paid work for performers during the pandemic. They also staged a successful virtual concert series – Leave a Light On, as well as several one-off concerts.

As The London Palladium welcomes back its first audiences since closure in March 2020, and in line with current Government guidance, this event will be hosted under social distancing, with venue-wide safety mitigations, including the wearing of face coverings. Full information about safety measures and requirements will be sent to ticket holders ahead of the event.
