World premiere of new musical created for Crazy Coqs'After You', a new musical starring Liam Doyle and Laura Tebbutt, music by Alex Parker, book & lyrics by Katie Lam and directed by Alastair Knights, comes to Zedel courtesy of The Crazy Coqs.
Previously announced in December and now written, scored and cast, 'After You' premiering in April, is the first musical conceived specifically for Crazy Coqs.
Taking their inspiration from Brief Encounter, Falling in Love and The Way We Were, writing duo Katie Lam and Alex Parker give a contemporary take on a classic love story designed for the unique intimacy of Crazy Coqs.
After You is a story about falling in love, the price of success, and the things we sometimes need to keep for ourselves. Meeting by chance at a cabaret performance, two strangers strike up a conversation. Unavailable and living incompatible lives, their connection is still sudden and deep. Unable to resist meeting again, they are soon consumed by a perfect secret that threatens to overwhelm the worlds they have worked so hard to earn.
Starring Liam Doyle (Legally Blond, West Side Story, Wicked) and Laura Tebbutt (Love me Tender, Forbidden Broadway, The Wizard of Oz), After You has a book and lyrics by Katie Lam, a score by Alex Parker and direction by Alistair Knights.
From April 13th-22nd with late performances at 10.45pm on Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th.
Childhood friends and longtime creative collaborators, Katie and Alex have been writing and producing musicals and musical theatre songs for three years, including commissioned numbers for the opening of the WhatsOnStage awards and for cabarets of Olivier award-winning actors including Janie Dee and Paul Baker. Following Amateur Dramatics: A Musical Comedy, The Railway Children: A Musical, and All Aboard, After You marks their fourth full show and their first for the venue.
