After plans to open in the West End in 2011 and again in 2013 both failed the Broadway musical [title of show] will receive its UK premiere at the Landor Theatre from 7th  August-14th September. (Press night 12th August).

Three Weeks. Two friends. One original musical. [title of show] is a musical comedy about Hunter and Jeff who are two struggling writers who decide to create a new musical for the inaugural New York Musical Theatre Festival.

With a three week deadline looming and nothing to lose they decide to try and create the show of their dreams, but soon realise that their mad dash to put pen to paper is infinitely more entertaining than the show they are writing.

Their struggle to write a hit becomes the subject of the show, and so [title of show] is born, taking its name from the ominous space on the festival’s application form. Chronicling its own creation and the real life story of Hunter and Jeff’s journey to seeing their musical produced, [title of show] is a love letter to musical theatre, following your dreams, and daring to believe that you can actually get paid to do what you love.

(title of show) is written by Hunter Bell, with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen. It is directed by Robert McWhir with musical direction by Michael Webborn.
