West End Misfits: The Valentine’s Edition
The Other Palace, February 14th 2020
Giving performers the opportunity to present the material that they feel best represents themselves, West End Misfits return at The Other Palace for a night of ground-breaking musical theatre and love songs as we celebrate the diversity and imagination of West End performers who just don’t seem to fit into the casting they want to be.
Imagine Evan Hansen sung by a woman, the leading lady taken on by the characterful bass, or the young cast of Matilda replaced with their future selves!
West End Misfits is an uplifting cabaret show that celebrates uniqueness and advocates for diversity by representing marginalised groups and those who feel they are ‘misfits’ within the industry. West End Misfits showcases performers through solo and group renditions of show tunes, always with an unexpected and exciting twist.
Following on from their critically acclaimed Christmas Edition, West End Misfits returns to the Studio to tackle the most powerful feeling of all in this heartwarming and uplifting show. Featuring a cast of fantastic talent from the stage and your television screen, The Valentines Edition will take you on a musical journey through the sweet mystery of love, with plenty of swooning and sighing, a little heartbreak, and a good helping of butterflies!
It will be presented by Lara de Belder (Sing: Ultimate A Cappella, Sky One; Comedy Bigmouths, Channel 5), Nic Chiappetta (Beans from Bella and Beans TV; All Together Now, BBC One; Sing: Ultimate A Cappella, Sky One; Vocalist for Avatar World) and Boris Alexander (The Ivan & Andrey Show and Sutreshen Blok (The Morning Show), Bulgarian National TV; Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat, UK tour with Bill Kenwright Productions), as well as being musically directed by Ben Levy (Sweet Charity, Emil Dale Academy; Stars in Your Eyes, Carriageworks Theatre; BBC Children in Need 2019).
