TIM RICE & STEPHEN OLIVER’S MUSICAL
‘BLONDEL’
TO BE RELEASED ON CD

ORIGINAL LONDON CAST ALBUM TO BE ISSUED ON MAY 26th 2017

Stage Door Records are pleased to announce the ‘Blondel’ Original London Cast Recording will be released on May 26th, 2017.

‘Blondel' was the first musical Tim Rice wrote with a composer other than Andrew Lloyd Webber. The music for 'Blondel' was instead provided by opera composer Stephen Oliver, who penned a lively score that was not at all operatic. The musical follows the trials and triumphs of Blondel, an ambitious minstrel in King Richard The Lionheart's court, desperately trying for a chart-topping song. Blondel and his long-suffering girlfriend Fiona undertake a multi-nation search when King Richard is taken captive during the Crusades. They rescue him and return to England just in time to prevent the coronation of his brother Prince John. A quartet of Monks provide plot commentary between scenes, also putting in appearances are Blondel's backing group, The Blondettes, and a hapless Assassin who does not enjoy international travel.

'Blondel' starred Paul Nicholas in the title role alongside Sharon Lee Hill as Fiona, Stephan Tate as Richard, David Burt as John, Chris Langham as the Assassin and vocal quartet Cantabile as The Monks. The show opened at the Theatre Royal Bath on September 12th 1983 followed by a two week run at Manchester's Palace Theatre before opening the newly refurbished Old Vic on November 2nd 1983. 'Blondel' subsequently transferred to the West End's Aldwych Theatre opening on January 21st 1984, running for 278 performances.

The complete original London cast album of 'Blondel', originally issued as a 2LP set, now makes a welcome return to CD having been out of print for nearly 20 years. The album, produced by its creators Tim Rice and Stephen Oliver, represents the complete production including the songs 'Running Back For More', 'The Least Of My Troubles', 'I'm A Monarchist' and 'No Rhyme For Richard'.

Ahead of the 'Blondel' cast album reissue, lyricist Tim Rice commented:
"More than thirty years after its creation, I still enjoy listening to Stephen Oliver's marvellous score for 'Blondel', which was this great classical composer's one foray into commercial musical theatre (perhaps "commercial" is the wrong word as Blondel's first staging only ran for a year in London). However there have been quite a few further productions around the world since 1983, primarily amateur and school versions, and there are ambitious plans for a relaunch of Blondel in 2017-18. While waiting for this to happen I hope this re-release of the Original West End Cast recording will stir a few memories and/or help to create fresh interest in the show".

Press Night: 1st May 2017 at 7pm
Finborough Theatre, 118 Finborough Road, London SW10 9ED

Everything Between Us

by David Ireland
Directed by Neil Bull.
Presented by Matthew Schmolle of The Working Party Theatre Company in association with Neil McPherson for the Finborough Theatre.

“I bit into your heart and I chewed on it slowly like a connoisseur. I swallowed it. I remember thinking it was an especially small heart and easy to digest. But no matter what I did you wouldn’t die”

The English premiere of a multi-award-winning new play by David Ireland, Everything Between Us runs at the Finborough Theatre, playing nine performances, Sunday and Monday evenings and Tuesday matinees from Sunday, 30 April 2017 (Press Night: Monday, 1 May 2017 at 7.30pm).

It is Day One of the newly formed Truth and Reconciliation Commission for Northern Ireland at Stormont.

As Sandra Richardson prepares to take her seat on the Commission, her long lost sister Teeni explodes into the chamber, attacking the South African chairwoman, Dikeledi Mashiane. Is this part of a terrorist plot or just her sister’s way of announcing her return to Belfast? Deep in the heart of the Northern Irish Parliament, overshadowed by the legacy of hurt, Sandra and Teeni must fight through decades of violence, anger and denial to discover if reconciliation is possible on the pathway to peace.

Everything Between Us is a searing, taut and fast paced two-woman showdown; a dramatic, dark, unflinching comedy written by Northern Ireland’s boldest contemporary writer.


Times and Dates:
Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, 30 April; 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 May 2017

Refugee Boy
Based on the novel by Benjamin Zephaniah and adapted for the stage by Lemin Sissay

Refugee Boy is a powerful and moving story based on Benjamin Zephaniah hugely acclaimed book. It tells the story of 14 year old Alem, a refugee forced to flee his family and country for London in the late 1990s, to escape civil war at home in the disputed region between Ethiopia and Eritrea. As a child of parents from both regions, Alem is in great danger from the forces of both sides, and is forced to seek safety alone in the UK.

The story follows Alem’s experiences in London in a warm-hearted tale of hope, family and identity. For Alem, the challenge is fitting in and growing up in a country very different from his own, and being there without the family he loves.

Refugee Boy brilliantly continues Chickenshed’s exploration of the issues surrounding refugees and immigration, as recently examined so powerfully in the sell-out run of Kindertransport.

“This planet is for everyone, borders are for no one. It’s all about freedom” Benjamin Zephaniah

Benjamin Zephaniah is a much-loved and celebrated British Jamaican poet, who has featured in The Times list of Britain's top 50 post-war writers.
