Following sell-out performances at the Phoenix Arts Club in collaboration with Michael Auger from Britain's Got Talent winning group Collabro, new musical CASES will return to the London stage at The Other Palace with a revamped score, additional songs and a new West End cast.
CASES is a new musical that explores the triumphs, heartbreaks and sacrifices involved in the pursuit of art where the commercial world collides with the underground and fame becomes a high price to pay.
The show premiered at the Phoenix Arts Club in 2017 and plays in the studio at The Other Palace from 31 March to 18 April 2020.
Comprised of 'terrific numbers' and 'marvellous compositions' (British Theatre), CASES is created by Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and BRIT School graduated writer and composer Dominic Powell.
This new production features a dynamic new score and additional songs performed by a new West End cast including Olivier nominee Maiya Quansah-Breed (Six, UK Tour/West End), Sabrina Aloueche (Les Miserables, Her Majesty's Theatre; We Will Rock You, Dominion Theatre), Andrew Patrick-Walker (Brooklyn - The Musical, Greenwich Theatre; Bat out of Hell, London Coliseum/Ed Mirvish Theatre, Toronto) and Adrian Hansel (Five Guys Named Moe, Marble Arch Theatre; Hairspray, Shaftesbury Theatre; Ain't Misbehavin, Southwark Playhouse), with direction by Grace Taylor (Six; Fanatical; Wasted; Jersey Boys, International Tour).
The cast will be performing excerpts at The Theatre Cafe on Friday 28 February.
