All Those Christmas Clichés, a brand new seasonal revue, premières at the Landor Theatre in Clapham, South London, starring Andrea Colley, Lorraine Graham, Fiona Lussier, David Randall and Paul Spicer.
It's that time of year again. It's Christmas Eve and five old friends meet to enact a pact made years previous in which they vowed to spend a Christmas together in the absence of partners and families. Liquor, laughter, lust and love ensue to create a heady cocktail of seasonal shenanigans in which traditional Christmas songs feature alongside musical theatre fare with a festive twist in an innovative new show that brings every conceivable Christmas cliché to life.
Young musical theatre star Paul Spicer, whose credits include lead roles in The Witches of Eastwick, Fame, Taboo and the recently acclaimed production of Notes from New York at the Arts Theatre, is joined by fringe divas Andrea Colley and Fiona Lussier, who between them have performed in just about every off West End venue you can think of, musical theatre actress Lorraine Graham, who most recently played Jan in Grease in the West End and Japan, and David Randall, who in addition to starring in shows such as Fiddler on the Roof, Fame and The Roy Orbison Story directed Notes from New York and will direct All Those Christmas Clichés.
Favourite seasonal songs including "White Christmas," "O Holy Night," "In the Bleak Midwinter" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" will be interspersed with work by award-winning musical theatre composers such as Jason Robert Brown (Songs for a New World) and Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party) to create a fun-packed festive revue, which is devised by Katherine McRae and Fiona Lussier with direction and musical direction by David Randall.
