Next Thing You Know - Landor Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
NEXT Thing You Know, the new musical from Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunninham, runs at the Landor Theatre from Wednesday, May 15 to Saturday, June 8, 2013.
Next Thing You Know follows the story of four New Yorkers as they laugh, love and drink their way through the big questions that face all young dreamers who wake up in the city that never sleeps.
Does marrying a really nice guy mean you’re settling down or just settling? Does taking a nine-to-five equal giving up or growing up? Does a decade in the city break you down or break you in?
Robert McWhir directs a cast that includes Amelia Cormack (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert the Musical, Palace Theatre, Murder Mistaken and Radio Times, UK Tours) as Lisa; Bart Edwards (The Aliens, Trafalgar Studios, BASH, Bristol Old Vic, Have a Nice Life, Charing Cross Theatre) as Darren; Aaron Lee Lambert (cover Donkey in Shrek The Musical, Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, cover Eddie and Shank in Sister Act, London Palladium) as Luke; and Jennifer Potts (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Annie and Disco Inferno, UK Tours) as Waverly.
The production has musical direction by Michael Webborn, choreography by Robbie O’Reilly, lighting by Richard Lambert, sound by Sarah Weltman and set and costume design by Anna Michaels.
Next Thing You Know has music by Joshua Salzman and book and lyrics by Ryan Cunninham, the team behind I Love You Because which was produced at the Landor Theatre in 2007, winning best Off West End production at the WhatsOnStage.com awards the following year.
