The Love Revue is an eclectic collection of songs questioning and exploring fundamental contemporary beliefs surrounding love, relationships and identity curated by stage and screen creative from works within the Pioneer Arts musical theatre repertoire.
Reworking elements of Powell’s original musical Date 1 to 10 (Landor Theatre), the musical revue is a melting pot of pop, R’n’B and musical theatre are stirred with dynamic poetry and readings as lovers Peter and Ruth encounter a sizzling adventure of heartbreak and discovery confronting fears from their past.
Olivier Award-nominee Maiya Quansah-Breed (Six, Rent) and Billy Luke Nevers (& Juliet, Jesus Christ Superstar) star in the world premiere of The Love Revue at London’s Phoenix Arts Club at 7:00pm and 9:00pm Monday 21st February.
