Bernstein Revealed: A Cabaret

We are now taking bookings for the show into 2019. For more details, please contact Joshua on joshua@takealeftproductions.com.

To mark the centenary of his birth in 2018, Leonard Bernstein enthusiasts Edward Seckerson and double Tony Award nominated arranger, composer and musical director Jason Carr are joined by double Olivier Award nominee Sophie-Louise Dann to celebrate the musical superman who bestrode the Broadway stage as whole-heartedly and adeptly as he did the world’s great concert halls.

Edward Seckerson conducted one of the last major interviews with Bernstein less than a year before his death in 1990 and it is that memorable encounter that is at the heart of this intimate show. Through a heady cocktail of stories and songs performed live by sensational West End star Sophie-Louise Dann, accompanied by Jason Carr on piano, Bernstein’s unique presence is felt once more.

Together they draw upon their vast knowledge of the scores and the stories behind them to create a unique evening that explores the life and music of this extraordinary man.

Performed live on stage are songs from some of the most popular musicals of all time, including West Side StoryCandideOn the Town and Wonderful Town, as well as gorgeous rarities from 1600 Pennsylvania AvenuePeter PanMass and Trouble in Tahiti.
