I spent a wonderful evening with Skye Crawford and Whitney Mosery at the Georgia Stitt concert at the Garrick Theatre on Sunday night. Georgia is a rising star from the USA, a composer, lyricist, MD and, as I discovered after the show – she is also a really lovely person. Her songs are so honest and personal, funny and poignant.
She was joined on stage by a cast of great singers including Simon Bailey, Norman Bowman, Cynthia Erivo, Jamie Muscato, Eva Noblezada and the lovely Caroline Sheen as well as the choir from Arts Ed. Drama School.
The producer for this great show was Danielle Tarento. After sitting on an MMD panel with her and John Cohen, talking about stage rights and writers, I seem to meet her everywhere. Her wonderful productions including: Dog Fight, Titanic, Mack and Mable and Parade.
It was great to catch up with my dear friend Skye Crawford (producer from Crow and Elk) and meet Whitney Mosery, who is Associate Director for the Almeida Theatre on the celebrated new production of Charles III, and also worked with Rupert Goold on the musical thriller American Psycho. I think we are going to be hearing a lot more about Whitney!
After show drinks at the Hippodrome and then I leapt in my little silver bullet and shot off back to Stratford.
