Nick Lloyd Webber Follows in Father’s Footsteps
Tonight (5 May 2010), in a benefit at west London’s Gate Theatre where guests will include Lloyd Webber senior, Nick unveils his third OSC score, for the forthcoming production of The Tempest.
The Tempest opens first at Gray’s Inn in London, running from 9 to 18 June 2010, prior to the company’s annual summer residence at the Walled Garden at Wadham College, Oxford, from 4 to 24 July and 4 to 20 August 2010. Directed by former Gate artistic director and Wadham alumnus Mick Gordon, with musical direction by Nick, the production marks the 400th anniversary of both Shakespeare’s play and the college.
The Tempest will also visit outdoor spaces at Hampton Court, Greenwich, Charlbury and Shakespeare House in Aylesbury, and in Oxford in August, will run in rep with the company’s new production of Noel Coward’s Private Lives.
