"Not(es) From New York" cast changes!
Cast changes in Not(es) from New York, a one-off show focusing on songs by a duo of London based composers, on Sunday 19 March 2006 at the Duchess Theatre.
The cast now features Anna-Jane Casey & Dougal Irvine (Joanna Riding & Richard Dempsey will no longer be appearing in the show) alongside Julie Atherton & Paul Spicer
Following a year-long absence, the West End's first and only platform for contemporary musical theatre returns with an unexpectedly British twist.
Launched in 2003 to present a selection of brand new US musical theatre work in the West End for the very first time, Notes from New York has since developed a cult following and enjoyed a succession of sell-out shows at the Arts Theatre, the Donmar Warehouse and the Trafalgar Studios. This one-off British edition reunites the creative team behind the original shows and refocuses our attention on talent this side of the pond.
It is directed by David Randall.
Featuring a selection of songs by Charles Miller (Build Me a Bridge, No One in the World, Brenda Bly: Teen Detective) alongside the music of Grant Olding (Three Sides, A Celebrity Chef Ate My Hamster,Spittin' Distance), Not(es) from New York is a unique and exciting opportunity to discover the work of two burgeoning musical theatre talents, both of whom are receiving their West End premiere in this production.
Anna-Jane Casey is currently headlining the acclaimed revival of "Sunday in the Park with George" at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Her previous credits include lead roles in shows such as Chicago, West Side Story and Sweet Charity.
Dougal Irvine is best known for his portrayal of Mark in the West End production of Jonathan Larson’s musical Rent, with other credits including Summer Holiday, Singin’ in the Rain, Miss Saigon and Assassins.
Julie Atherton will soon play Kate Monster in the West End première of Broadway hit Avenue Q, having previously played Serena in Fame and Sophie in Mamma Mia.
Paul Spicer, whose credits include lead roles in The Witches of Eastwick, Fame and Taboo, returns to the West End fresh from the UK tour of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, prior to which he was seen by millions as the young guy playing strip poker in the video to Uniting Nations’ top ten hit single Out of Touch.
