Many of you will be aware of my involvement in co-producing the Dress Circle Benefit Concert in August 2011. Myself and Stuart Matthew Price assembled a whole host of the West End’s finest talent (plus a few special guests thrown in for good measure) along with a 30 piece orchestra, for a sold out concert at London’s Her Majesty’s Theatre.
The production was nominated in both the whatsonstage and broadwayworld awards for 2011.
It was a spectacular evening of truly memorable talent and performances from members of many original casts, some singing numbers that haven’t been heard out of context and publicly since their last performance in the production.
With such overwhelming support and positive feedback, Stuart and I have decided the opportunity to expand on the success is too good to miss, and therefore have started work on this year’s concert in aid of a very special charity.
