This Sunday’s performance of Notes from New York at the Donmar Warehouse has already sold out (See News, 9 Jan 2004), but don’t despair too much if you’ve missed it. We hear that producers will shortly be announcing details of the new show in the increasingly popular series of US musical theatre showcases. This Sunday’s show features the work of Tony Award winners William Finn and Jason Robert Brown as well as Rent’s late Pulitzer Prize winner Jonathan Larson, not least the UK premieres of several songs from Larson’s only other musical Tick Tick Boom. Apparently, the next show, which is likely to return to the Arts Theatre, will feature more UK firsts for songs from a current Broadway sell-out. For those attending the Donmar this weekend, be sure to check out the outfits being sported by stars Debbie Kurup, Paul Spicer, Julie Atherton and Craig Purnell. In another first for the series, the performers are being wardrobed by brand name fashion house DKNY (Donna Karan New York). Nice.
