A new production of the musical Ordinary Days is heading online next month.
The show will stream via The Theatre Cafe website on demand from Wednesday 31st March until Tuesday 6th April.
Created by Adam Gwon, Ordinary Days is a poignant show about how ordinary things are just what makes life so extraordinary. The story follows four young New-Yorkers trying to find their way: a woman who cannot let things go; a man who wants to start afresh; an artist who struggles to find his purpose; and a student who has lost her thesis notes.
Adam Gwon’s score is full of vibrant and memorable songs, which ring true to life. This is a musical for anyone who has ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humour and poignancy, it celebrates how individual stories combine in unexpected ways.
The production stars Will Arundell (A Christmas Carol) as Jason, Nic Myers as Claire, Joe Thompson-Oubari (Zorro The Musical) as Warren and Bobbie Chambers as Deb. It will be directed and designed by Daniel Smith from Pickle Stage Productions with musical direction from Ben Barrow and a new cello arrangement arranged and played by Jessica Brydges.
The sung-through musical will be staged and filmed in a theatre, prior to streaming. Originally planned as a spring tour, the production team have risen to the challenge of continuing the project during the latest lockdown. Previously, Ordinary Days enjoyed runs off-West End and off-Broadway
