Parallel Productions are proud to present 'West End Switched Off'.
Following on from the highly successful and much praised debut concert last year, Parallel Productions are returning to the St James Studio with the second gig in their intimate West End Switched Off concert series.
Reprising the inimitable format of bringing together classic and unknown musical theatre songs in new stripped back, acoustic arrangements, the second event promises to leave you crying out for more. The concert series is running in parallel to the on-going series of recordings, which began with the first West End Switched Off, Volume 1 album released last year. West End Switched Off, Volume 2 is currently in the works.
Accompanied by a live band helmed by musical director and creator Kris Rawlinson, there will be a stellar line up of guests, which will be announced in full in the coming months, but last year included Emma Hatton, currently appearing as Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked, Dean John-Wilson, recently seen in the National Theatre’s Here Lies Love, and Rebecca Trehearn, recently in City of Angels at the Donmar Warehouse.
If the last gig is anything to go by, you don’t want to hang around, as tickets are sure to sell out.
‘Phenomenal MD Kris Rawlinson has re-orchestrated the songs with acoustic splendour to sound freshly minted… Hope that West End Switched Off becomes a regular fixture. I’ll be back for more if/when it is!’ – Mark Shenton
★★★★★ ‘Fresh, unorthodox… Every song impressed with a surprising and unconventional arrangement. Some spine-tingling moments of unique musical magic. I can’t recommend it highly enough.’ - West End Frame
★★★★ ‘Takes you to a higher place… I will be first in line for tickets to the next concert.’ - West End Wilma
