Bernstein Revealed at The Roses Theatre

Sunday 8 July 2018

As we approach the centenary of his birth in 2018, Leonard Bernstein enthusiasts - writer and broadcaster Edward Seckerson and composer, arranger and musical director Jason Carr - are joined by Olivier nominated West End leading lady Sophie-Louise Dann to celebrate the musical superman who bestrode the Broadway stage as whole-heartedly and adeptly as he did the world’s great concert halls.

This intimate musical afternoon explores the life and music of this extraordinary composer, conductor, pianist, teacher, father and activist. Bernstein wanted, needed, to experience it all. His creed - as a musician and as a man - emanated from his unshakable belief in the power of music to transcend cultural, social, religious divisions, to excite, to move and to unite.

Edward Seckerson conducted one of the last major interviews with Bernstein, less than one year before his death in 1990, and it is that memorable encounter that lies at the heart of this intimate show. Through a heady cocktail of stories and songs performed live by sensational West End star, Sophie-Louise Dann, accompanied by Tony Award nominee Jason Carr on piano, Bernstein’s unique presence will be felt once more.
