The acclaimed London Musical Theatre Orchestra are putting on a concert production of A Christmas Carol, starring Robert Lindsay as Scrooge.
But what the dickens do they know about Dickens?
Well… in 2016, London Musical Theatre Orchestra and a host of West End stars performed a concert version of A Christmas Carol, with a glorious score by Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin), that snagged a throng of five-star reviews (people have called their shows “musical theatre heaven”), duly sold out their entire run, and went on to delight literally everyone involved.
So, quite a lot, it turns out.
And they’re back this year for a repeat performance, putting on a limited run of just two shows at the Lyceum Theatre. The shows are, based on last year’s run, basically guaranteed to sell-out.
This year’s concerts star multi award-winning actor Robert Lindsay (My Family, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Oliver!) as Ebenezer Scrooge. He is joined by a host of stars including Nicolas Colicos (The Bodyguard), Sophie-Louise Dann (The Girls), Lucie Jones (2017 UK Eurovision entrant), Hugh Maynard (Miss Saigon), Neil McDermott (EastEnders), Gemma Sutton (Gypsy) and, direct from sell-out runs on Broadway, Olivier-nominee Michael Xavier (Into The Woods, Sunset Boulevard).
With the 32-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra in full festive swing, you should have, ahem, great expectations.
NOTE: The London Musical Theatre Orchestra’s production of A Christmas Carol will run at the Lyceum Theatre on both the 11th and the 18th of December. You can find out more, and get your tickets right HERE, or find out what’s on at the Lyceum HERE.
