Andrew Keates & Theatrica Ltd for The Landor Theatre are seeing in the New Year with the first anniversary of their exciting cabaret season, ?A Spotlight On...? - a series of one night only performances from leading West End and Broadway musical theatre artists. Eighteen artists will be appearing over the three week run in January, and the first six have been announced; they are: Natasha Barnes, Tim Driesen, Kim Ismay, Rosalind James, Anton Stephans and Stevie Webb.
‘A Spotlight On...' is an opportunity for well known musical theatre artists to share the music and stories that are important to them, both within their careers and their personal lives. It has earned a solid reputation for the quality of its artists and their uniquely honest performances. This is a rare chance to get up-close and connect with those that continue to inspire us on the big stage. Get yourself a glass of wine in Clapham?s intimate Landor Theatre and share in the highs and lows that emanate from this mad business we call show. Their music. Their stories.
Natasha Barnes has had a hugely varied career having appeared in numerous BBC radio dramas and notably playing the role of Celine in the ITV series Doc Martin. Natasha is perhaps best known for playing the role of Anna in both West End productions of the Spring Awakening. Most recently she could be seen in I Was Looking At The Ceiling and Then I Saw The Sky, Striking 12 and Stand Tall.
Tim Driesen has appeared in many wonderful shows in his very successful musical theatre career; Joseph in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Riff-Raff and Rocky in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Adrian in Never Forget, Mark in Rent in Concert at The Garrick, Paul in Jet Set Go, Phoebus in Notre Dame De Paris and Galileo in We Will Rock You, not to mention his appearances in Batboy, Starlight Express and Mephistopheles Smith. Tim will be sharing not only the music that is important to him, but also many of his own original compositions.
Kim Ismay has had a formidable career on stage, radio and television. Before recently appearing at The Landor in the World Premier of About Bill, she could be seen in productions of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Hot Mikado, Noises Off, How The Other Half Loves, Stepping Out, Acorn Antiques, Singin' in The Rain, Saturday Night Fever, Lautrec and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. She is currently playing Tanya in the West End production of Mamma Mia! and will soon appear in Not Going Out with Tim Vine and Lee Mack.
As well as appearing in The Landor Theatre's sell-out run of Ragtime as Sarah, Rosalind James has appeared as Dinonne in Hair, Gone With The Wind, Jesus Christ Superstar, Whistle Down The Wind and Daddy Cool. She was Eponine in Les Misérables and also appeared in the 25th Anniversary Concert at The O2. The Landor is delighted to welcome back one of its original Ragtime company members, and her special guests.
Jeremy Legat is best known for playing Boq in the smash-hit musical Wicked, but he has had his fair share of other diverse roles, appearing in Gompers, Spring Awakening, Regiment, Who's Afraid of The Big Bad Book, Beautiful Thing, Peter Pan and even Hamlet on the QM2! Jeremy will be joined by some very special guests, including Lucy May Barker, Gina Beck, Caroline Keiff and George Ure.
Anton Stephans has appeared with some of the biggest names in show business, including Tina Turner, Sting, Cliff Richard and George Michael, not to mention appearing in such iconic productions such as Porgy and Bess, Showboat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Starlight Express. Most recently he could be seen in the Chichester production of Sweeney Todd.
Lastly, after his acclaimed performance in Betwixt at Trafalgar Studios, The Landor is delighted to welcome Stevie Webb to The Landor for the very first time. He is best known for playing Posner in The National Theatre production of The History Boys. He has also appeared in On The Shore of The Wide World, Departure Lounge, The Long Road, Sons of York and The Lakeboat, and numerous concert appearances.
