Jason is delighted to announce an event-packed autumn!

He has composed incidental music for The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark at the Unicorn Theatre. This is suitable for very small children aged 2-6, so why not introduce your favourite small people to theatre with some lovely cello music, recorded by the incomparable Andrea Hess?

Lockhart

Then we come to my autumn’s main event - a ‘developmental production’ of my and Ashley Robinson’s new musical Lockhart, performed by Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts students at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in North London. It’s a ‘Southern Gothic’ story, and a completely original musical. We’re very excited about the piece and by the wonderful young talents performing it. A first-rate creative team is helmed by Broadway’s Matt Cowart.

Please come and support new writing!

So, it’s already a busy schedule, but I couldn’t say no to orchestrating She Loves Me for the Menier Chocolate Factory. It's one of the most beautiful Broadway scores ever, and reunites me with the Menier Candide’s director Matt White and star Scarlett Strallen.

After all that writing, it’ll be a nice change of pace to get out and appear at the piano with two wonderful artists, Live at Zedel.

MARIA FRIEDMAN is making her first cabaret performances in nearly two years, reprising our acclaimed Bernstein/Sondheim show ‘Lenny & Steve’.
