The Choir of Man, the runaway international hit from the creative minds of Andrew Kay – Soweto Gospel Choir, Noise Boys, Gobsmacked and the award-winning North by Northwest – and Nic Doodson – The Magnets, Gobsmacked and Noise Boys – opens in London’s West End on Tuesday 9 November 2021. Following three sell-out seasons at the Sydney Opera House and multiple sold-out US and European tours, The Choir of Man will play at The Arts Theatre, with previews from 29 October 2021. The show is currently booking to 13 February 2022. Tickets are now on sale.
The Choir of Man is the best trip to your local you’ll ever have, featuring amazing reinventions of folk, pop, Broadway and rock chart-toppers from artists including Guns ‘N’ Roses, Fun!, Adele, Avicii, Paul Simon, Sia and many more. It’s a party, it’s a concert and it’s a lock-in like no other.
The cast of nine multi-talented guys combine beautiful harmonies and foot-stomping singalongs with world-class tap dance and poetic meditations on the power of community. This is a riotously feel-good homage to that gathering place we’ve all missed so much over the past year: the pub, complete with a real working bar on stage.
Full cast details are to be announced.
The Choir of Man is directed by Nic Doodson, with musical arrangement and supervision by Jack Blume, choreography by Freddie Huddleston, monologues written by Ben Norris, scenic design by Oli Townsend, lighting design by Richard Dinnen and costumes by Verity Sadler.
The show is produced by Immersive Everywhere, Nic Doodson, Andrew Kay and Andy & Wendy Barnes.
