MUSICALS Unsung

24th May 2016, St. James Studio

 

"Some of these songs are forgotten gems which have been hidden for years. It made such a nice change to see completely different music being performed - a brilliant concept for a concert featuring a brilliant line-up of West End talent."

"Kris Rawlinson’s arrangements and accompaniment throughout was sublime and perfectly in synch with the performers. His playing never dominating but always providing a rich musical background to showcase the performances."

"The evening is thoroughly enjoyable and, for any musical theatre geek, it’s a fascinating insight into the creative process of making a new musical. At 90 minutes, including an interval, it’s a delicious bite-size musical treat!"

"This was a really entertaining evening, and a great show for musical theatre nerds who like to discover hidden gems. Here’s hoping that Musicals Unsung can become a semi-regular feature at the St James Theatre Studio."

West End Switched Off

20th March 2016, St. James Studio

 

"The ever charming Carolyn Maitland performed a killer arrangement of Don’t Stop Believing that was the pinnacle of an already fantastic first act; let’s hope there’s another CD from Switched Off and this features on it!"

"A thrilling concept with an exciting future, Kris Rawlinson is unstoppable. Celebrating two sold out performances, West End Switched Off continues to glide from strength. West End Switched Off is an absolute must see for open minded theatre fans."

"West End Switched Off is a great concept of taking well known musical theatre songs and performing them in a new and interesting way. I look forward to more shows from them and more studio recordings to capture some of these great songs."
