Apartment 40C, a new musical conceived, written and work-shopped at London Theatre Workshop, will get its world premiere at the new bijou theatre in Fulham in a season running from December 3-20.
Apartment 40C, written by joint LTW artistic directors Ray Rackham (book and lyrics) and Tom Lees (music), explores how relationships are affected by the endless possibility of choice.
Told over the course of one evening, the musical examines decades of love, happiness, regret and loss; chances taken and options missed; and how it is sometimes impossible to make any kind of distinction between the past and the present.
It features six actors playing two characters:
Alex Crossley as Katie
Alex James Ellison as Eddie
Peter Gerald as Edward
(West End credits include Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors and Thenardier in Les Miserables, and on tour Noah Claypole in Oliver!, Jesus in Godspell)
Nova Skipp as Kathryn
(West End credits include: Aspects of Love, The Phantom of the Opera, Salad Days, The Sound of Music)
Drew Weston as Ed
Lizzie Wofford as Kate
Ray Rackham and Tom Lees were the team behind London Theatre Workshop’s inaugural production of Adam Gwon’s Ordinary Days.
They are award nominees at this year’s Broadwayworld Awards and Ordinary Days has been nominated in the Best Musical category at both the Broadwayworld and Off West End Theatre Awards.
Apartment 40C will be followed by the world premiere of the musical Yarico, based on a true story, produced by John and Jodie Kidd, which opens in February.
The London Theatre Workshop is above the Eel Brook Public House in New Kings Road.
