St. James Theatre is feeling musical this January, as they feature songs from legendary songwriters. Lift yourself out of winter blues and send your spirit soaring with a Spoonful of Sherman. Robert and Richard Sherman were the musical maestros behind so many of Walt Disney's films. From The Jungle Book, The Aristocats, and Mary Poppins, they also wrote songs for musicals like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Rose and The Slipper. On the 6th & 13th January, St. James Theatre celebrates their genius in a cabaret show featuring Robert's son, Robert J Sherman. The performance begins at 8pm, and tickets cost between £12.50-£22.50.
From the 7th January - 12th January, you can delight in the music by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, who along with the lyrics of Don Black, created the Musical Tell Me on a Sunday. It tells the story of an English girl who moves to New York in search of a successful career and to find true love, but after struggle and heartache, she realises she might be looking in all the wrong places. Tickets are between £20-£60.
Another taste of Julie Andrew history sees a new production of Putting it Together. The musical was first seen twenty years ago in New York, but now will be making its London premiere on the 14th January at St. James Theatre, where it will play until 1st February. While two couples attend a revue in New York, they discuss the complexity of relationships. With tickets at £20-£47.50, the show features classic songs from Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Follies, Company, Sunday In The Park With George, and Into The Woods.
