      The award-winning musical Pippin returns to the Bridewell Theatre from 9-19 May in a new production staged by Sedos, the City of London’s premier amateur theatre company.
      Ambitious young man Pippin is ready to change the world. But things are never that simple. Setting out to make his mark, Pippin dabbles with the horrors of war, the lure of sex and the sordid world of politics, failing at every turn. But there is someone Pippin can rely on. Someone he can trust. Someone who can help Pippin be remembered forever… in one final, extraordinary blaze of glory.
      With its infectious and unforgettable score from four-time Grammy and three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden) and its iconic choreography by Bob Fosse, Pippin has delighted audiences across the world since the original production in 1973. The most recent Broadway revival swept the New York awards circuit, including winning the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
      The Sedos team are delighted to bring Pippin back to the Bridewell, a theatre that holds a special place in the history of the show. The now widely used “Theo ending” was first staged at the Bridewell exactly 20 years ago.
      “It has been a pleasure exploring this deliciously dark show with such an incredibly dedicated and talented company, who have managed to put a new spin on such a well-loved story,” said Chris Adams, director of Sedos’ production of Pippin.
      “As well as being packed with memorable, fun show-tunes, Pippin has a really intriguing darker edge, and we've taken inspiration from contemporary stories like Black Mirror and The Handmaid's Tale in our design. Our choreography combines modern twists with nods to the original routines created by Bob Fosse. 
      “I think audiences will be surprised by the show and will enjoy coming up with their own
      ideas about what it all means. Despite being developed in the 1970s, it really does feel bang
      up to date.”

      Iconic 1930s American Comedy Opens at the Bridewell Theatre 
      Sedos presents a revival of the award-winning 1930s comedy You Can’t Take it With You at the Bridewell Theatre, off Fleet Street, from 10 - 14 April 2018. Written by popular comedy writing duo, Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, the play won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was then adapted for the screen, winning the 1938 Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director. The play had a Tony award-winning revival on Broadway in 2014 starring James Earl Jones and Rose Byrne.
      Set in the summer of 1938, New York City, You Can’t Take it With You introduces you to the Sycamores, an eccentric family who live life to the fullest by pursuing their passions – no matter how bizarre. Their routine is disrupted when their daughter Alice wants to bring her new fiancé and his ultra conservative Wall Street family home for dinner. The brusque Sycamores must straighten up to meet the new in-laws and despite all best-laid plans, mishaps and mayhem ensue.
      Director Nick Mouton said: “You Can’t Take it With You is a good insight into American life in the 1930s, post the Great Depression. Wall Street is working hard to stabilise the market, there’s an increase in Russian emigration following the Revolution, and Franklin D Roosevelt has implemented his New Deal plans. This is then mixed with the fun-loving and unpredictable ways of the Sycamore family to create a madcap, idealistic and raucous comedy.
      “The play is a strong statement about the dangers of being obsessed with making money, which ultimately led to the crash in 1929, and that you should live your life to the fullest rather than be held down by the mighty dollar.”
      Since 2012 Sedos has been the resident theatre company at the Bridewell Theatre.

      Following their exciting 2017 season which included the four-star reviewed, sell-out production of Fame: The Musical and a brand new musical adaptation of Lysistrata, Centre Stage London have announced their innovative 2018 season.
      Featuring a varied programme, Centre Stage London are proud to announce their 52nd Season which includes: Love Happens Here - An LGBTQI Cabaret; Mic Drop - A Musical Throwdown; Centre Stage Rocks! and the return of family-favourite, the original high-school musical, Grease The Musical!
      The season reflects Centre Stage London’s focus on diverse offerings for their members. Chair, Alexis Rose, says “Our team have worked to develop a fresh, innovative season which offers a wide range of opportunities for our members, old and new, onstage and off. Mixing large shows with smaller cabarets, well-known titles with totally new formats, ensures a diverse experience for our actors, creatives and audience. We are proud to be able to continue our tradition of offering exciting, high quality, affordable theatre to central London audiences.”
      In February Centre Stage presents Love Happens Here - AN LGBTQI Cabaret. Just like the LGBTQI community themselves, their soundtrack is vast and diverse. Centre Stage London is proud of our LGBTQI members and the connection we have with this vibrant community and is excited to celebrate a message of hope, acceptance, activism and love in Love Happens Here - An LGBTQI Cabaret!
      Next up in June, it’s officially on! In a new musical concept, Mic Drop- A Musical Throwdown, Team Girls will take on Team Boys in this musical throwdown of epic proportions! Each team will battle for fame and glory via social media during rehearsals, but only one can be victorious. Who will it be? Well, only the audience have the power to decide at performances. So pick your side, and consider the gauntlet thrown!
      Following in September is Centre Stage Rocks! Breaking free from the traditional theatre environment, this is a rock concert that will blast the house down with some of the biggest tunes Musical Theatre has ever seen. An opportunity for vocalists to unleash their inner rock god and perform alongside a live rock band with a festival-like feel, and for audiences to really let their hair down!
      Completing the season, in November, Centre Stage London is excited to present the return of family-favourite Grease The Musical. Featuring all the unforgettable songs from the movie including ‘Grease Is The Word’, ‘Summer Nights’, ‘Hopelessly Devoted To You’, ‘Sandy’, ‘Greased Lightnin'’, ‘You're The One That I Want’ and more, dust off your leather jackets, pull up those bobby-socks and see Danny and Sandy fall in love all over again at The Bridewell Theatre in the original high-school musical!
