Following its recent success at the Donmar Warehouse and the Arts Theatre, Notes from New York, the platform series showcasing contemporary US musical theatre, is set to return in September with another concert evening, this time at the newly launched Trafalgar Studios (See News, 3 Jun 2004). Full details, including casting for the fourth in the concert series, are expected to be released later this week. Temporary bad news for Paul Spicer fans, however. After appearing in the first three Notes from New York events as well as the limited run of the musical Little By Little from the same team at the Arts Theatre (See News, 3 Jun 2004), Spicer plans to take a back seat in September, working backstage as an associate director. He is expected to be back in the limelight for a special first anniversary gala for Notes for New York in November.
