Playbill – MARC J. FRANKLIN
The one-day-only event, starring Olivier nominees Rachel Tucker and Rachel John, played the West End October 11 following a digital production earlier this summer.
An in-person staging of Jason Robert Brown’s Songs for a New World played two performances at the London Palladium October 11. The one-day-only event was the first musical to return to the West End since theatres shut down in March due to COVID-19.
Olivier nominees Rachel John (Hamilton) and Rachel Tucker (Come From Away) and Cedric Neal (Motown) all returned from a digital production that streamed earlier this summer, with David Hunter (Waitress) and Shem Omari James (The Wild Party) joining the cast.
