    Myth Tickets

    In summer 2016, Sam Cassidy’s brand-new rock musical 27 ran at the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone to mixed reviews. Now, after increasing buzz, the British musical returns to London in a revamped, reworked semi-staged production at The Other Palace, under the title of Myth: The Rise and Fall of Orpheus.

    Myth is the updated Ancient Greek story of Orpheus and the underworld, catapulted into the modern-day music industry. Addiction and mental illness has taken the lives of some of our most brilliant young musicians: Jimi Hendrix, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin are just a sample.

    Sam Cassidy, writer of the book, music and lyrics, focuses on these issues and their parallels to the Ancient Greek myth. The book has been revised and songs added for this workshop production, which takes place in a concert-style, featuring a 6-piece band.

    Myth features casting including Zoe Birkett, Jaymi Hensley, Jodie Jacobs, Jodie Steele and Jessamy Stoddart, alongside Joe Burman, Richard Carson, Eloise Davies, Amy Di Bartolomeo, Lauren Ellis-Steele, Joel Harper-Jackson, Laura Johnson, Shekinah McFarlane, Matthew McKenna, Alice Martin and Damien Walsh.

    Arlene Phillips directs, with multiple theatre credits including Saturday Night Fever and international productions of Starlight Express, Joseph and Jesus Christ Superstar. The Other Palace, newly taken over by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is committed to developing new British musical theatre through a range of initiatives, including staging workshop performances.

    Running at the London venue for just a week, from 10 March to 17 March 2018, this is a fantastic opportunity to catch British musical theatre development in action. Guaranteed to rock you to your very core, Myth promises to have audiences laughing and crying in equal measures.

    Performance dates: 17 Mar 2018 - 17 Mar 2018

    Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes (including an interval)

    Age recommendation: Not suitable for children

    Special notice: Anyone who loves new musical theatre, updated classical stories or tragic tales of talent and downfall will thoroughly enjoy this British rock musical.

    The first act is a bit slow and the script needs some work, to be fair it is a work in progress. But as the show begins its second act it hits home and may even bring a tear to your eye.
