Presented by PK Productions by arrangement with Stanley Silverman and R&H Theatricals Europe, Celebrating Silverman takes place at the London Hippodrome on Sunday, April 6, 2014.

As winner of the Obie, Drama Desk, Naumburg, and Koussevitsky Foundation Awards, and both a Tony and Grammy Award Nominee, Stanley Silverman has worked both On and Off-Broadway with stage luminaries including playwrights Richard Foreman, Arthur Miller, Anthony Burgess, and directors Mike Nichols, Arthur Penn, Michael Langham and Dan Sullivan.

His Broadway credits include, Ah, Wilderness! (1998), The Capeman (1998), Uncle Vanya (1995), The Government Inspector (1994) Timon of Athens (1993), Othello (1982), The Little Foxes (1981), Bent (1979), Stages (1978), Galileo (1967), The Alchemist (1966), and the 1976 Joseph Papp and Lincoln Center revival of Three Penny Opera (starring Raul Julia, directed by Richard Foreman).

Off-broadway his credits include The Merry Wives of Windsor (1994), Black Sea Follies (1986), The Golem (1984), Up from Paradise (1983), Coriolanus (1979), Julius Caesar (1979), Dr. Selavy’s Magic Theatre (1972), and Ten Nights in a Baroom (1962).

His classical compositions have been performed by Pierre Boulez and the New York Philharmonic, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, Richard Stolzman, Michael Tilson Thomas, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

It was following the London premiere of Dr. Selavy’s Magic Theatre in January that PK Productions joined forces with Stanley Silverman to create an evening of wonderful songs and stories reflecting his long and diverse career, including some songs which haven’t been performed in over thirty years.

The evening will also mark the London premiere of a selection of songs from Up From Paradise, Arthur Miller’s only musical.

From the style of Weill to Handel from acid rock to jazz, this one off event is, according to the press release, sure to thrill audiences and leave them with a hunger to hear more of Stanley Silverman in the future.
