First look photos have been revealed for the upcoming digital production of digital glam rock musical Dorian.
Rising star and Offie Award-winning actor Bart Lambert (Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story) will take on the titular role in the new edgy musical adaptation, reenergising Oscar Wilde’s classic text for a modern audience.
Also on the cast are John Addison (The Life, A Little Night Music), Fia Houston-Hamilton (Mamma Mia!, Wolf of Wall Street), Robert Grose (Kinky Boots, EastEnders), Lewis Rae (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Mame), Johanna Stanton (The Rocky Horror Show, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice), Sophie Jugé (Coppelia, Good Omens) and Tristan Pegg (The Merry Wives of Windsor, The Shape of the Impossible).
A teaser for the show shares: “A rock star, trapped in eternal adolescence, wants to change the course of his life and discover love. But, can you find love if you’ve sold your soul to the Devil?
“Whilst sitting for the eccentric society painter, Basil Hallward, Dorian is discovered by the influential Lord Henry and is soon under the spell of this dangerous, charismatic music impresario. Dorian, the secret child of love and death, is suddenly thrust into a confusing world where love dare not speak its name.”
Bart Lambert said “I’m so excited to be part of this project, it’s always a pleasure to shed a new light on a classic story, and the evocative world of Dorian Gray is the most pleasurable of them all. After the year we’ve had I think we can all do with a bit of Rock and Roll right now!”
The piece will be presented by Ruby in the Dust, following the success of Gatsby A Musical, filmed and streamed at Cadogan Hall.
The creative team is made up of Composer Joe Evans, Writer/Director Linnie Reedman with Musical Director Sophie Jugé, Assistant Director Scott le Crass, Lighting by Jai Morjaria, Costumes by Belle Mundi, Movement Director Anthony Whiteman, Associate Movement Director Penelope Simons, Stage Manager Freya Blackwell-Treasure, Wardrobe Assistant Helen Gardner, Producer Kate Edwards and Artwork by Alex Jackson Creative
