All or Nothing – The Mod Musical, based on the story of legendary 1960s rock band Small Faces, is to play a limited West End season after its third sell-out tour. Tickets are now on sale.

It will run at the Arts Theatre in London from February 6 to March 11, 2018, with a cast led by Carol Harrison as Kay Marriott and Chris Simmons as the older Steve Marriott. Further casting is to be announced.

The producers have also announced that a 29-track cast recording as well as a limited-edition 15-track blue vinyl LP are released today, October 10. It will be available from venues hosting the current tour as well as the Arts Theatre.

Written and directed by Carol Harrison, All or Nothing tells the story of the four charismatic young kids from east London who became Small Faces, hitting the big time only to discover the path to success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy.

The musical celebrates the unique sound of this iconic Mod band, with all their hits including Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Here Comes the Nice, Itchycoo Park and All or Nothing.

The show is currently touring the UK and Ireland until November 11, stopping off at Dundee Rep Theatre, Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury, Waterfront Theatre in Belfast, Helix Theatre in Dublin, Charter Theatre in Preston, Mayflower Theatre in Southampton, Queens Theatre in Barnstaple, Princess Theatre in Torquay and Harrogate Theatre.

Carol said: “I am honoured that All or Nothing has been embraced by so many wonderful audiences who have laughed, danced, wept and sang with us across the length and breadth of the country.  I am so thrilled that we can now bring the All or Nothing experience to the West End.  Watch out, ‘cos the Mods are coming – or maybe we just never went away!

As well as extensive theatre work, Carol is best known for playing Louise Raymond in EastEnders, Gloria in comedy Brush Strokes and Dorothy in London’s Burning.

Chris Simmons is best known for playing DC Mickey Webb for over 12 years in The Bill and has also appeared in EastEnders as Mark Garland and in the Tracy Beaker spin-off CBBC show, The Dumping Ground.

The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer PP Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter, Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach and creative consultant.

All or Nothing is produced in the West End by Rock ‘n’ Roll Productions, with musical supervision by Pat Davey.
