Piccadilly Gets a Brand New Musical
London is filled to the brim with West End productions, but if you’re like us, you can never say no to a sparkly new one hitting town…especially when it’s in The Crazy Coqs’ unique intimate venue. The Crazy Coqs over the years has become home to the West End’s most up-and-coming performers alongside established stars all taking to the stage beneath Piccadilly Circus.
Childhood friends and creative collaborators, Katie Lam and Alex Parker (the people behind amateur dramatics: A Musical Comedy, The Railway Children: A Musical and All Aboard), were given the task of creating a modern story for The Crazy Coqs. The result? Three classic romances (Brief Encounter, falling in Love and The Way We Were) all mixed together to create a brand new heart fluttering story, After You.
After You is all about falling in love and learning that sometimes we need to keep things to ourselves, despite it being one of the hardest things to do. It follows two characters that met by chance at a cabaret performance and – as you’d hope for on stage – their connection was sudden and deep, which resulted in them just having to meet again. However, like any love story it wasn’t all roses and Champagne; there’s a secret that threatens to rock the worlds that they have both worked so hard to maintain…we wonder what the secret is?
Order a drink from their ever-so-sophisticated cocktail menu, sit back and enjoy the show…
After You will run from 13th to 22nd April at The Crazy Coqs
