Muted features music by Tim Prottey-Jones, lyrics by Tori Allen-Martin and book by Sarah Henley.
An earlier draft of Muted, entitled ‘After the Turn’, previewed at The Courtyard Theatre in 2012 with a sell-out run in which it was dubbed as “the British Rent” by Mark Shenton for The Stage, and “a beautiful unique production” by Backstage Pass. It also received Broadway World and What’s On Stage Award nominations for Best New Musical. It has since been re-written, re-titled and developed with a West End cast and full band, ready to share with you in concert on the 4th February.
The music is written by the fantastic Tim Prottey-Jones, who’s recent album ‘To Do, To Be’ (which also featured lyrics by Tori Allen-Martin) was described by West End Frame as “an exceptional collection of material” stating that “new British writing just got exciting again”. The concert version of the show will be directed by up-and-coming director Jamie Jackson, who recently directed the concert version of musical ‘The Natives’ for the Old Vic New Voices and was nominated for an Off West End award for Best Director for his show ‘WINK’ at Theatre 503.
Interval Productions have become well known for shaking up the form of musical theatre and bringing it up to date, having created four brand new multi-award-nominated musicals in four years. Most recently their show ‘Streets’ – nominated for Offies for Best New Musical and Most Promising Playwrights (Sarah Henley and Tori Allen-Martin) transferred to the Hackney Empire and The Vaults. Sarah and Tori have also recently been commissioned by Idris Elba and Bob&Co to write for an exciting project.
