St James Theatre Discovers You Won’t Succeed on Broadway if You Don’t Have any Jews

tumblr_inline_nq3kozwfFj1rgiv1h_500It has been said that ‘You won’t succeed on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews’. Broadway wouldn’t be what it is today without the Jewish composers and writers whose melodies we so greatly adore.

You Won’t Succeed on Broadway if You Don’t Have Any Jews is not in any way political. It is simply a joyous celebration of over 80 years of the Jewish contribution to Musical Theatre. Fresh from an opening in Tel Aviv, the London run features an all-star cast including Lloyd Daniels (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Sarah Earnshaw (Spamalot) and Sophie Evans (The Wizard of Oz).

The audience will be taken on a captivating musical journey from the 1930s to present day, with the fascinating and unique success stories of Broadway’s most famous composers. The biggest hits from every decade will be performed by seasoned West End performers, a dancers’ ensemble and on-stage band.

From the early sounds of George and Ira Gershwin and Irving Berlin through to showstoppers from contemporary musicals such as Rent, Hairspray and Parade, this is one singularly sensational show for all the family. Producers, Collaborative Artists, comment, “We are thrilled to introduce our phenomenal cast of seasoned West End actors, who all share a passion for musical theatre and the ground-breaking works of these sensational composers. We, at Collaborative Artists, feel it is imperative to display the show’s message to audiences all over the world and believe that theatre should go far beyond entertainment! Bringing the show back to the West End means the world to us and we can’t wait to dazzle the St James with a splash of Broadway.
