Reputation, a new musical by Alick Glass, will have its world premiere at The Other Palace Studio in November 2019.
Set in the 1930’s Reputation celebrates the glorious sounds and musical rhythms of that era.
Hollywood in the late 1930’s: a time when the major studios are struggling to feed the insatiable worldwide demand for new talkies. Freddy Larceny is a con artist running a scam to pass-off the work of new writers as his own. He strikes gold when Michelle Grant, an aspiring novelist and student at a Paris language and deportment college, spots his advertisement in the ‘Variety’ movie trade newspaper. Larceny plagiarises her script for a film – credited to him as writer – that then goes on to receive an Oscar nomination.
Reputation, is the compelling story of plagiarism and the female struggle for equality, follows Michelle’s fight for recognition and the recovery of her stolen work, told through 25 original songs and romantic ballads written in the flamboyant style of the best-loved lyricists of the mid 1900’s.
The new musical will be lead by Jeremy Secomb (Pie Shop Sweeney Todd, Javert in Les Miserables 2015-17), Maddy Banks (The Band – West End) and Ed Wade (Fiddler On The Roof – West End) and are joined by Cory Peterson, Lauren Ingram, Charlie Dennis, Ashleigh Cavanagh and Eleanor Tollan.
Reputation is directed and has musical direction by Warren Wills, choreographed by Tamsyn Salter, lighting by Nick Richings, music produced by Jordan Brown with casting by Anne Vosser.
Reputation runs at The Other Palace from 5 – 14 November 2019.
