Spanish performer Joan Vázquez brings back 'Something's Coming - a Sondheim tribute' as part of Live At Zédel Summer season, after his acclaimed London debut last Fall. Accompanied by himself on piano, Joan celebrates music theatre genius Stephen Sondheim with legendary songs such as Losing My Mind, Finishing the Hat, Send in the Clowns or Being Alive, while delivering Mr Sondheim's witty quotes on the state of the art, love and life. Joan has been in many shows in Barcelona and Madrid such as Merrily We Roll Along, Hair, Mamma Mia!, The History Boys, Bagdad Café, My Fair Lady or Rent. 'Something's Coming: a Sondheim tribute' was presented both in Barcelona and Madrid to rave reviews. Joan will be joined by special West End guest star appearances to be announced. Regarding his upcoming concert in London Joan said 'I am very excited about bringing the show back to Zédel. Making my London debut here was literally a dream come true. I couldn't be more grateful for such a warm welcome. I'm a huge fan of London theatre life and I felt both a great responsibility and an incredible thrill to perform for a West End audience. I have to say they made me feel at home.'
Regarding Sondheim's work he says 'Sondheim is my favourite composer since I played Frank in Merrily We Roll Along in Barcelona and my admiration won't stop growing. He can take me with just one chord and sometimes with even less. You always know it's him. His words are beyond. So deep and yet so simple. He's a wizard.'
Listen to Joan's debut solo album 'Something's Coming - a Sondheim tribute' -available in iTunes- with the songs from the show. 'Joan, making his London debut at Live At Zédel, treated a full house to 17 of Sondheim's finest compositions in a pleasing 75-minute show.' 'It's always good to hear someone new and, from the warmth of the applause, this won't be the last visit from this likeable señor.' Musical Theatre Review
