All or Nothing The Mod Musical - Ambassadors Theatre

Those currently headed to the Arts Theatre are being treated to the popular production All or Nothing – The Mod Musical, which opened there earlier in February. The latest jukebox musical to land in the capital, it has proven popular with audiences headed to the Great Newport Street venue, and now this popularity it going to be cemented with a high profile West End transfer.

At the end of March, All Or Nothing is set to begin performances at the Ambassadors Theatre, which recently said goodbye to the long-running Stomp and is currently the home of David Eldridge’s play Beginning.

The show’s writer Carol Harrison plays the part of Kay Marriott in the production and she is set to reprise the work at the Ambassadors Theatre. This is also true of Chris Simmons, who plays Small Faces frontman Steve Marriott at the Arts Theatre.

The show celebrates the counter-culture movement known as Mod, which was characterised by fashion choices and music in the 1960s.  The band Small Faces was a part of that scene, with band members Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenny Jones and Jimmy Winston presenting fans with a range of songs that now form the score for this successful musical.

So just as Mamma Mia! includes the songs of ABBA, All Or Nothing includes songs from Small Faces such as Lazy Sunday, Tin Soldier and title track All Or Nothing, amongst others.

Small Faces formed in 1965 and had a range of hit songs during the period that has made them hugely influential and a key part of 1960s culture. Their legacy was so big that when Steve Marriot died in a house fire in 1991 there was a huge outpouring of grief, with his death marked on regular intervals.

With that in mind it is easy to see why All Or Nothing would prove to be such a popular musical for fans and now its journey continues as it plays at the Ambassadors Theatre from Wednesday 28th March 2018 to Saturday 2nd June 2018.
