From The Fringe in Wimbledon

A cherry-picked festival

From The Fringe is a cherry-picked 18 show, micro-fringe festival throughout June that includes, comedy, musicals and drama.

Next up is Summoning Sondheim(Fri 14 Jun), a cabaret comedy séance that uses the power of musical theatre to summon us theatre kids’ Lord & Savior, Stephen Joshua Sondheim (the Joshua is important).

Musical theatre bitches and real life witches, Grace O’Keefe (co-creator of five-star EdFringe sell-out Bad Teacher) and Jordana Belaiche (West End Credits: Little Cosette in Les Misérables, Jane in Mary Poppins, yes, really) host this silly little spooky séance. Their goal? To summon Sondheim’s spirit in order to write the perfect musical. 

This love letter to Sondheim is a testament to his legacy as both one of the world’s greatest artists and as a mentor to so many writers, exploring what it means to make art (after all, art isn’t easy!), the lack of a female musical theatre canon and how we “Summon Sondheim” every time we’re in a theatre.

New Wimbledon Theatre, 93 The Broadway, Wimbledon, London SW19 1QG until 29th June:
