Alex Parker Theatre Company, The Katie Lam Company in association with Live at Zedel present
A New Musical
Music by ALEX PARKER
Book & Lyrics by KATIE LAM
Directed by ALASTAIR KNIGHTS
In a first for the venue, this intimate new musical from writing team Katie Lam (lyrics, book) and Alex Parker (music) has been especially written for the Crazy Coqs and will receive its world premiere next April. After You is a story about falling in love, the price of conventional success, and the things we sometimes need to keep for ourselves.
By chance dining out alone at adjacent tables, two strangers strike up a conversation. Their perfect lives and perfect marriages are forgotten in the sudden and deep pull they feel to one another. Unable to resist meeting again, they are soon consumed by a perfect secret that threatens to overwhelm a lifetime of following the rules.
Childhood friends and longtime creative collaborators, Katie and Alex have been writing and producing musicals and musical theatre songs for three years, including commissioned numbers for the opening of the WhatsOnStage awards and for cabarets of Olivier award-winning actors including Janie Dee and Paul Baker. Following Amateur Dramatics: A Musical Comedy, The Railway Children: A Musical, and All Aboard, After You marks their fourth full show and their first for the venue.
