The Wit and Whimsy of
Alexander S. Bermange
with special guests
Julie Atherton and Cassidy Janson
St James Theatre, London – Sunday 2nd February 2014
“A wonderfully witty comic songwriter and performer” – LBC 97.3
The Wit and Whimsy of Alexander S. Bermange is returning to the St James Theatre following its sell-out success in July.
Alexander S. Bermange has received recognition for his many stage musicals (including, in the last year alone, Thirteen Days at the Arcola Theatre, The Route To Happiness at the Landor Theatre, and The 24 Hour Musicals at the Old Vic) and is known to millions as the resident comic songwriter and performer on BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House and the BBC World Service’s Weekend. His funny songs – some topical, others timeless – have not only tickled national and international radio audiences, but have also acquired a formidable following through performances and recordings by the likes of Kit & The Widow, 4 Poofs and a Piano, and dozens of West End stars.
The Wit and Whimsy of Alexander S. Bermange offers you the opportunity to see this master of the comic song perform some of his best-loved – and premiere some brand new – comedic musical creations, from “tributes” to David Beckham, Prince Harry and Great Britain, to portraits of second-rate singers, tube-travelling trainspotters, and perverted pensioners.
Alexander will be joined on stage by special guest West End leading ladies Julie Atherton (whose credits include Kate Monster/Lucy in Avenue Q, Sister Mary Robert in Sister Act and Sophie in Mamma Mia!) and Cassidy Janson (whose credits include Kate Monster/Lucy in Avenue Q, Elphaba in Wicked and, currently, Paquette in Candide). The show is directed by Michael Strassen (whose credits include Ruthie Henshall’s one-woman show at the Hippodrome, and Assassins and The Fix at the Union Theatre).
The Wit and Whimsy of Alexander S. Bermange is being performed on Sunday 2nd February at 7.30pm at the St James Theatre, 12 Palace Street, London SW1E 5JA. The St James Theatre is the first newly built theatre complex in central London for 30 years, boasting two auditoria and a brasserie and lobby bar offering food, wines and cocktails.
