It would be an accurate statement that Broadway would be an entirely different musical landscape, had it not been for the many Jewish composers and lyricists. You Won’t Succeed on Broadway If You Don’t Have Any Jews is a celebration of over 80 years of Jewish contribution to musical theatre.
Fresh from peformances in Tel Aviv, this show will be entertaining audiences at St. James Theatre, with the interesting and unique success stories of Broadway’s most famous composers ranging from the 1930’s to present day. The most successful compositions from every decade will be performed by seasoned West End performers, a dancers’ ensemble and on-stage band. From the early sounds of George and Ira Gershwin and Irving Berlin through to showstoppers from contemporary musicals such as Rent, Hairspray and Parade, this is a production that will appeal to a wide spectrum of audience.
The London run features an all-star cast including Lloyd Daniels (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Sarah Earnshaw (Spamalot) and Sophie Evans (The Wizard of Oz) to name but a few!
Producers, Collaborative Artists, comment:
We are thrilled to introduce our phenomenal cast of seasoned West End actors, who all share a passion for musical theatre and the groundbreaking works of these sensational composers. We, at Collaborative Artists, feel it is imperative to display the show’s message to audiences all over the world and believe that theatre should go far beyond entertainment! Bringing the show back to the West End means the world to us and we can’t wait to dazzle the St James with a splash of Broadway.
