A series of late-night concerts featuring West End stars will take place as part of the next month's two-week MT Fest UK at The Other Palace , it has been announced.
From 11th to 23rd February 2019, the festival will see eight brand new musicals receive 45-minute semi-staged presentations, plus talks and concerts from leading performers and writers in the theatre industry.
Night Caps will be a late-night series of informal concerts held as part of the festival, with 12 performers leading their own solo concert during the fortnight.
The line-up for these concerts will feature Louise Dearman, the only actress to have played Elphaba and Glinda in Wicked in London, Bat Out of Hell's Jordan Luke Gage, and Sophie Isaacs who recently played Heather McNamara in Heathers the Musical. The line up is completed by Nathan Amzi, Luke Bayer, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Evelyn Hoskins, Rob Houchen, Emma Kingston, Claudia Kariuki, Laura Pitt-Pulford and Tosh Wanogho-Maud.
This is the first time that MT Fest UK will take place at The Other Palace and is being organised by associate producer Paul Taylor-Mills, who was previously the artistic director of the venue.
Taylor-Mills worked alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber to relaunch the St James Theatre as The Other Palace in 2017, with an emphasis on producing new musicals.
MT Fest UK will run at The Other Palace from 11th February to 23rd February.
