The cast will feature West End leading man Noah Thomas as Warren (Jamie – Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Jonathan Carlton (Pippin/Kinky Boots) as Jason, Laura Dawn Pyatt (BBC/Bat Out Of Hell) as Claire, Hannah Turner (TV: The Chelsea Cowboy) as Deb, alongside f/m alternates Sarah Drake & Dean Makowski Clayton (Elegies for Punks, Angels & Raging Queens).

Working alongside Atherton on the creative team is Musical Director and Offies Award Winner Ben Levy (Best Musical Direction for Godspell/ BBC – White Handkerchief), casting by Benjamin Dywer at Blue Elephant Casting, lighting design by Domino Mannheim, sound design by Nim Green, set design by Bob Sterrett and produced by Scatter Productions.

The musical is completely sung through, consisting of 21 songs to transport you for an hour of storytelling at its finest.

Set after the events of 9/11, Ordinary Days encapsulates the breadth & life of New York City in all its art forms; following the path of 4 new yorker’s as they search for fulfillment, acceptance, happiness and escapism. When optimistic Warren finds Deb’s notes for her grad thesis, they unknowingly kickstart a chain of events that not only change their lives, but the lives of fellow New Yorkers Jason & Claire forever.

Ordinary Days is a musical like no other, with complex interconnected songs and a thrilling tale that makes the ordinary lives of us all feel more and more extraordinary by the end of the show.

Julie Atherton said: “This show holds a special place in my heart after working on the original London production so revisiting as Director is a real privilege. It’s beautifully poignant and at times really funny. Adam Gwon’s music has a way of sneaking up on you and tugging at your heart strings.”
