___________________________________________ LOSERVILLE to open in the West End in 2011!
Set in an imaginary US town in 1971, LOSERVILLE reminds us just how far we have come! These are the days when STAR TREK dominated the TV screens; space exploration was headline news and computers were in their infancy.

Loserville The MusicalYou would never expect that the geeks would have inherited the world. But they did! LOSERVILLE gives us the seventies with a cast of characters that are totally recognisable and a score that's entirely contemporary. Perhaps things haven't changed that much after all.

In 2009 James teamed-up with Elliot Davis to write LOSERVILLE. Taking inspiration from the narrative songs on James's Son of Dork album, WELCOME TO LOSERVILLE, they have written seven new songs. These join five hit tracks from the original album to complete the score.

LOSERVILLE has a cast of 24, with an additional 6 onstage musicians. Directed by Steven Dexter with designs by Francis O'Connor and choreography by Nick Winston. It is due to open in London's West End in 2011.

Arthur Miller’s unflinching examination of the American Dream. 

At sixty-one years old, Willy Loman has been a travelling salesman for thirty-four years. Now, he’s been taken off salary and is forced to confront a future on commission. As memories and dreams of the past, ebb and flow, Willy’s family struggle to engage him in the present.

Death of a Salesman won the Pulitzer Prize in 1945. It is considered to be Miller’s greatest work and one of the most important plays of the 20th century, still startlingly relevant over sixty years after its premiere.

‘Willy Loman never made a lot of money. His name was never in the paper. He’s not the finest character that ever lived. But he’s a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid.’

Daily Mail *****
The Public Reviews *****
Evening Standard **** "deftly staged"
WhatOnStage **** "a perfect bite-sized piece of theatre."
The Argus "staged with a beautiful simplicity ... with an almost balletic quality"

Inspired by Erich Segal’s best-selling iconic novel, this is a brand new musical version of Love Story, also one of the most romantic films of all time. 

Oliver Barrett IV went to Harvard and Jenny Cavilleri to Radcliffe. He was rich, she was poor. He was sporty, she played music. But they fell in love. This is their story.

Their romance is as poignant as it is enriching, as sweet as it is intense. Love Story will win your heart. And it might just break it.

Cast includes: 
Claire Carrie, Keiron Crook, Lillie Flyn, Peter Polycarpou, Jos Slovick, Simeon Truby, Emma Williams and Michael Xavier
