Maria Friedman & Friends - Legacy Tickets

London
3 Mar 2022 - 17 Apr 2022

We are thrilled to present the world première of Maria Friedman’s brand-new show celebrating the brilliance of Marvin Hamlisch, Michel Legrand and Stephen Sondheim. Friedman performed with each multiple times, becoming a much-lauded interpreter of their works. Now with friends old and new, she explores the legacies of these titans of 20th century musical theatre.

“This event was brought about by a desire to sing, to share and to join together in celebration of some of the greatest composers of our time. These past two years have starved us of the connection and depth of emotion that brilliant music and song can evoke – and we want to bring that back in the beautifully intimate space at the Menier, and enable audiences to revel in the legacy of my much missed friends, these extraordinary artists – Hamlisch, Legrand and Sondheim. I can’t wait to share it with you.” Maria Friedman

This unique event will see Maria & friends showcase songs from many of these ‘Giants in the skies’ greatest works – Yentl, A Chorus Line, The Way We Were, Company, Follies and many more – including Broadway Baby, Send in the Clowns, A Piece Of Sky, At The Ballet and Nothing – with entertaining and personal memories that make a Friedman cabaret a night to remember.

Collaborating with her friends, musical director and pianist, Theo Jamieson, and with fellow performers Matthew White, Ian McLarnon, Alfie Friedman and Desmonda Cathabel, and a choir from the Royal Academy of Music, this show promises to be a celebration worthy of some of the greatest composers of the 20th century. Jamieson will be accompanied by Paul Moylan on Double Bass, and Joe Evans on Percussion.

The event sees triple Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman and the Menier renew their collaboration following the critically acclaimed Maria Friedman Re-arranged – which transferred to the West End, her appearance as Golde in the Menier’s Olivier Award winning production of Fiddler on the Roof at the Playhouse and of course, Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, which saw her make her directorial debut, and also transferred to the West End, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Revival of a Musical and the Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical.

Our review

Stephen Sondheim’s death last November shook many of us to the core and provides a soul-stirring foundation to Maria Friedman’s exultant new show, which opened the same day as news broke that her superb Menier Chocolate Factory revival of Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along will soon be seen in New York, starring Daniel Radcliffe. In the meantime, Friedman honours not just Sondheim’s legacy but that of her friends Michel Legrand and Marvin Hamlisch, whose widow, Terre, took movingly to the stage at...
