Theatregoers have two chances this week to hear the best of new British musical writing talent in the West End. Tonight, as part of the ongoing late-night cabaret series in the Delfont Room at the Prince of Wales theatre, the work of six young composers - Craig Adams, Susannah Pearse, Laurence Wythe, Matt Brind, Ian Sapiro and Charles Miller – will be performed by West End stars including Kelly Price (Guys and Dolls), Gina Beck (Les Miserables) and Avenue Q’s Jon Robyns and Giles Terera (See News, 29 Jan 2007). Tickets cost £20 for table seating and £10 for standing room and can be booked 0870 850 9189. And at the Arts Theatre, composer Leighton James House’s work will be showcased with two 7.30pm performances on 18 and 19 March. The concerts will feature excerpts from House’s musicals Lifts (written when he was just 17) and Only You Can Save Mankind. The latter, based on the Terry Pratchett fantasy novel of the same name, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2004 and was previously tipped for a West End transfer. On seeing the piece, Pratchett commented: “If I'd known it was going to be this good, I'd have written a better book!” Tickets for A Little House Music are priced £15 and can be purchased via the Arts Theatre box office on 0870 060 1742.
