Toy Soldier Productions have released video of Jamie Muscato performing However Hard I Try from their new musical Lady M.
Based on Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’, Lady M the musical tells the untold story of Lady Macbeth. Chilling flashbacks of her haunted past are woven into this reimagining of the famous tale of murder and power, revealing an original backstory to Lady Macbeth’s villainy and downfall.
Toy Soldier Productions is a British production company, founded in 2020 by musical theatre partnership James Beeny and Gina Georgio to develop and produce new, original work.
Jamie said, “I can’t wait for people to hear ‘However Hard I Try’. James and Gina have written an awesome musical saga based on Shakespeare’s classic story. I had great fun working on it with them and I hope people enjoy the song!”
Created and written by Beeny and Georgio, the sung-through musical features a modern score with original music and lyrics. ‘However Hard I Try’ has been produced by Beeny and Georgio alongside Rik Simpson, Coldplay’s multi-Grammy Award-winning producer (Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, Mylo Xyloto, Ghost Stories, A Head Full of Dreams, Everyday Life).
Lady M the musical is in development and has undergone two development workshops in London, directed by Jean-Pierre Van Der Spuy and choreographed by Lizzi Gee. The workshop cast included George Blagden, Kerry Ellis, Phoebe Fildes, Robert Hands, Jamie Muscato, Maiya Quansah-Breed, and Karl Queensborough.
