A production of Songs For A New World is to perform to live audiences at The London Palladium.

Jason Robert Brown's song cycle will stage two socially distanced shows to audiences on Sunday, October 11 at 3PM and 7:30PM.


Tickets are available online here priced £32.30 to £48.80.

After a recent critically acclaimed streamed performance via The Other Palace, the new live production will star David Hunter (Waitress), Rachel John (Hamilton), Cedric Neal (Motown The Musical) and Rachel Tucker (Come From Away). They will be joined by recent graduate Shem Omari James.

Also appearing will be an ensemble of singers from Mountview made up of Haroun Al Jeddal, Tyler Davis, Sha Dessi, Charlotte Grayson, Daniel Harriot, Ben Joyce, Kaine Lawrence , Monet Marquis, Georgia Mason, Nathania Ong, Laura Raineri and Liv Sherry.

The Jason Robert Brown classic examines life, love and the choices we make.

A teaser reads: "Transport through time and space to meet a startling array of characters - every one of them so different, but all representing our world today and our hopes for a new world… a better world."

Producers Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson said: "It's a total joy to announce a return to live performance with the first musical to return to the West End - Jason Robert Brown's Songs for a New World for just two performances.

"To be able to share in the power of collective experience with these incredible performers and an audience together again for the first time in over six months reminds us why our industry is so vital."

The production will be directed by Séimí Campbell (My Son Pinocchio – Southwark Playhouse), with music direction by Adam Hoskins (Doctor Zhivago).
