West End stars including Julie Atherton, Helena Blackman, Daniel Boys, Clare Foster, Alex Jessop, Sarah Lark and Paul Spicer will dispense with the old and bastion the new when they showcase the work of 25 year old musical theatre composer Michael Bruce in an unprecedented gala concert, Michael Bruce: A Little Less Ordinary, for one night only at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue on Sunday 1 November 2009.
Michael Bruce: A Little Less Ordinary is an exceptionally rare event. A fully-fledged West End concert profiling the contemporary musical theatre writing of a young British composer. An opportunity for a truly talented songwriter to make his mark on the West End stage and have his songs performed for the first time by a selection of the UK’s hottest young musical theatre stars.
Winner of the groundbreaking Notes for the Stage competition in 2007, which was co-promoted by West End show series Notes from New York and entertainment industry bible The Stage, Michael Bruce offers a burgeoning ray of hope for the future of the British musical.
This talented young songwriter has been nurtured since winning the competition by the young producers behind it. He will now prove the pessimists wrong, by confirming that new writers can flourish beyond the confines of the fringe, as long as they are afforded the artistic and commercial vision to do so.
