Casting announced for ‘Monday Night at the Apollo’ concert series
Performances will now take place from April 2021.
New dates have been scheduled for the Monday Night at the Apollo series, featuring West End stars in concert at the Apollo Theatre. A full line-up has also been announced, with performances taking place on selected Mondays from 12 April - 10 May.
Hosted by Greg Barnett, Monday Night at the Apollo will see performers share memories of their West End careers, as well as singing stand-out songs from their favourite genres. Originally, performances were set to take place in January 2021, but were postponed as a result of extended theatre closures.
Stars taking part include Rosalie Craig, Arthur Darvil, Hadley Fraser, Lucie Jones and Cedric Neal, continuing commitment from prior announcements. Additional performers include Aimie Atkinson, Declan Bennett, Kerry Ellis, Cassidy Janson, Renée Lamb, Jamie Muscato, Julian Ovenden and Layton Williams.
Producers Greg Barnett and Hugh Summers said: "We’re so excited to be announcing revised dates and further cast for ‘Monday Night At The Apollo’. In light of the newly imposed national coronavirus restrictions, we feel it was the correct decision to postpone the original performances... We truly believe that we are on the way back to reopening theatres and feel it is important to press ahead with getting these concerts staged. It in no way dampens our spirits, rather it strengthens our resolve to get the industry restarted."
Monday Night at the Apollo will share residency with Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at the Apollo Theatre. Currently, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will return at the Apollo Theatre from 2 March, starring Noah Thomas as Jamie New.
