The stars of Wicked, Waitress, & Juliet and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie are among those performing daily concerts streamed live online.
Aimie Atkinson, Layton Williams, Lucie Jones and Cassidy Janson are just a few of the musical theatre actors getting involved in Leave A light On, an intimate series of shows performed with a piano live from the Theatre Café.
The first shows will take place on Monday March 23, with former Everybody’s Talking About Jamie West End lead Williams and Waitress stars Jones and Sarah O’Connor.
Leave A Light On will cost £7.50 to watch each show – of which there are three every day with the money divided between performers and venue costs.
Details of how to get access to the streaming links will be published on the Theatre Café’s social platforms soon.
The Theatre Café is a favourite among musical theatre fans, and usually presents regular live performances from West End and Broadway stars, as well as holding open mic nights.
As London’s theatres temporarily close due to the coronavirus outbreak, performers and venues are finding ways to keep bringing their work to the public. The Hampstead Theatre is screening a filmed version of I and You starring Maisie Williams on Instagram, while actors are taking to YouTube to livestream monologue performances.
