Experience the wonderful work of Rodgers And Hammerstein this summer as their mid-20th century show Allegro is staged at the Southwark Playhouse throughout August. With Thom Southerland directing and a rich cast of talented performers leading the way, it is bound to be something that audiences will be clamouring to sink their teeth into.
Allegro follows the life of a Joseph Taylor Jr. We begin the story at his birth in 1905 and in this typical American world he lives a normal life, following all of the usual footsteps that will be familiar to us all. Along the way he learns about his himself and makes big discoveries on the most valuable ways to live one’s life.
Richard Rodgers put together the music, whilst Oscar Hammerstein II provides the book and lyrics when Allegro emerged in 1947. Though it is not as well known as say Carousel, the show definitely has a special place in the hearts of their fans and with that in mind its return to the stage will be very welcome, particularly as its major appearance on a renowned stage is so rare. It means that this is something no-one will want to miss out on.
But it also boasts a director in Thom Southerland, someone who has provided hit shows for venues across the capital. He previously worked for the Southwark Playhouse for shows like Grey Gardens, Grand Hotel and Titanic, amongst others, though he has also been behind the likes of The Grand Tour at the Finborough Theatre and The Mikado at the Charing Cross Theatre.
He directs Allegro at the Southwark Playhouse from Friday 5th August 2016.
