Pretty Woman And Dear Evan Hansen Casts Join Our Christmas Concert & Two New Reunited Shows Added

Big news! The casts from the London productions of Pretty Woman and Dear Evan Hansen have joined the incredible lineup of our concert premiering tonight! All I Want For Christmas Is Theatre (the fourth of our six Reunited concerts) features over 40 UK stage stars including 2020 Olivier Award winners Sam Tutty and Cassidy Janson and over a dozen Olivier Award nominees.

We've also announced two further concerts in our Reunited series: Never Give Up On A Dream (31 Dec) assembles members of the London cast of Pretty Woman to celebrate new beginnings in 2021, performing select numbers from the hit show alongside classic tunes; and Together Again (7 Jan), an intimate celebration of sisterhood starring three artists who met as the title trio in the musical Heathers.

The new artists and shows are being added following the audience response to the initial slate of artist-led programming, developed by Aimie Atkinson, Thespie’s Creative Producer and the Olivier-nominated star of Pretty Woman and SIX.

Each concert, which is crafted in partnership with the artists involved, features ensemble music performances (filmed in COVID-secure London venues), and ranges from musical theatre hits, to pop music, to favourite Christmas songs and also includes intimate interview footage.

The full lineup of shows is below, and you can now get a discounted 6-concert bundle for £50/$60. We hope you can join us and celebrate the talents of these incredible theatre artists!
