Sedos礼物如何成功创业,不用真正尝试在伦敦的感化院剧院从5月15日至25日2019年。

如何成功?is a musical by Frank Loesser with book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock, and Willie Gilbert.

基于由谢泼德·米德的同名原著,故事探讨J. PIERREPONT芬奇,一个年轻的窗户清洁剂,谁通过自己的努力雄心勃勃上升,成为全球检票公司董事长的生活。

从百老汇到感化院

When the musical opened on Broadway in 1961 it enjoyed nearly 1,500 performances, winning seven Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle award and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A film followed in 1967 in which Robert Morse and Rudy Vallee reprised their original Broadway roles.

After a number of revivals on Broadway Sedos has now taken London by storm with their absolutely stonking production at the Bridewell.

不过,这并不只是发生...

但它是如何发生的呢?任何戏剧作品既需要天赋和团队合作。但它不只是出色的团队合作。188金宝搏网址Infobarrel专门采访了导演彼得Shimmin认为和音乐总监迈克尔·坎农给洞察这些作品是怎么走到一起。

彼得Simmin - 董事

Infobarrel: Please tell us a bit about your background.

Peter: I grew up in the Isle of Man which has a huge theatre community, and was fortunate enough to be a part of many wonderful shows (including the British Isles Premiere of莱斯误!)。

I learned a lot from that experience and went on to study Acting, where I also dipped my toe into directing. I then moved to Barcelona for a year to do TIE, then a UK panto tour before moving to London to try and ‘make it’ as a pro.

For a long time, I was applying for lots of acting jobs but wasn't feeling inspired - like I had lost the passion for performing. That’s when I found Sedos who were doingLondon Road, a show that I really loved, and I felt excited about performing again.

I’ve now found there can be real enjoyment in having a “normal person” job and doing things like this on the side for fun - and I have so many more opportunities than I had when I was trying to ‘be a pro’.

Infobarrel: You've performed in quite a few shows including老实人,怪人andLondon Road.什么是它想踏入导演的节目吗?

Peter: I directed my university performing arts society musical,浑身是劲,并做了自我导向的一块,这些都是课程的一部分,所以我以前的一些经验。我也认为,谁爱要知道的一切,每个人都在表演的演员的类型,知道他们所有的线条和尝试发生之前发现问题 - 我想这就是为什么我感到自然垂落指导。

I was thrilled to AD on平凡的日子在2017年,和联合执导空战last year but this was my first ‘solo’ gig. However, I have a very collaborative team - there have been so many production meetings planning everything out together and that’s been such an enjoyable part of the process (and stopped me going insane!)

188金宝搏网址Infobarrel:是什么激发了你的方向如何成功in Business…?

Peter: I’ve loved the show since I was a kid - the music is brilliant and it’s so funny. I think some of the satire was lost on me until I read the script properly and realised how incredibly clever and nuanced it is. It’s one of only a handful of musicals to win the Pulitzer - which is a testament to how strong the book is.

当然,Mad Men是一个很大的影响 - 我真的很入戏,去年和狂欢看着它投球Sedos之前 - 是他们去的真实性对我来说是真正的驱动程序。

另外,我觉得上世纪60年代是美国历史上的一个迷人的时刻 -空战was set in ‘63 which is a few years after our如何成功is set, and it’s amazing to think how much change happened in that decade - from Marilyn, JFK and Vietnam to the Feminist and hippie movements of the late '60s/ early '70s - it’s a great time to explore.

188金宝搏网址Infobarrel:你是不是在找试镜什么技能?

彼得:这是a triple threat show - we needed people who could sing, dance and act. We had set songs, scenes and a routine to learn - and most people who only class themselves ‘movers’ tried the advanced dance too! The best thing to do in an audition is go for it, no matter what - make strong choices, come with ideas and show willingness to adapt.

We’ve been blessed with the cast we have who are all very experienced, and a lot are new to Sedos. I really hope this show inspires even more people to get involved in amateur theatre in London - it's fantastic.

Michael Cannon - Musical Director

Infobarrel: Please tell us a bit about your background in musical theatre.

Michael: I’ve always loved musicals, but got into MD-ing while studying at the University of Warwick.

我的作品的MDCompany, Cabaret, Little Shop of Horrors, Guys and Dollsand春之觉醒for Music Theatre Warwick - I love the huge range of shows that you get to be involved with in University Theatre! This is now my third show with Sedos having MD’d我爱你,你太完美了。and昏昏欲睡的陪护, which were both really fun shows to rehearse and perform, much like如何成功

188金宝搏网址Infobarrel:你找的试镜任何特定的素质?

迈克尔:最重要的是,我们正在寻找谁做坚强的性格选择,可以让我们笑的人!该节目依靠这么多,如果你没有在很有趣的人,它只是属于平的喜剧。值得庆幸的是,谁做我们笑的人也有很大的声音。我们很幸运能看到这么多有才华的人试镜。

188金宝搏网址Infobarrel:MD-ING后我爱你,你太完美了。你有没有发现有在你的方法任何异同to How to Succeed in Business..?

Michael:From a musical point of view, the shows are very different. Saying that, there is a certain amount of pastiche in both of them - for example, in如何成功你有音乐比喻的一些伟大的发送窗口,如大学的战斗歌曲Grand Old Ivy。With any song that’s a pastiche, you have to be aware that you’re poking fun at a genre, while also finding the truth of it. The other big difference is the size of the cast - there are definitely pros and cons to both, but it’s been great fun rehearsing with a really big chorus and I’ve enjoyed the fantastic sound they make together.

Infobarrel: Has there been a particular Ah-ha moment when something that seemed especially difficult suddenly came together?

迈克尔:对我来说,最大的阿公顷的时刻到来了,在结束Coffee Break。我问剧组做一些复杂的动态的工作,他们会做飞驰,但只要他们在他们的脚,也没有碰到过。

我没有意识到的是编排没有借给自己什么都齐声唱反之亦然副。编导和我制定了一个妥协,它在歌唱和舞蹈带出最好的。

I think that is a good example of how the show has been throughout - the whole process has felt truly collaborative and I’ve loved being a part of it.

Outstanding, Exhilarating, Extremely Memorable

Simple scenery, minimal props, excellent vocals together with superb choreography are key elements in this production. What I noticed in particular was that American accents were consistently maintained throughout the show - I think that's sometimes one of the hardest things to do.

Sedoshas given us an outstanding, exhilarating, and extremely memorable production - proving once again that great teamwork creates a great show.

What's Next?

Sedos有计划在2019年剩余包括在Minnack剧院,康沃尔他们的首张性能令人兴奋和冒险计划。

A Swell Party– 10th-14th June 2019 at the Minnack Theatre.

作为Sedos的成员不只是表演。显然,表演总是欢迎和鼓励通过各种具有挑战性的讲习班,培养技能。但是你可以缝?你可以设计一个程序或帮助卖给他们?怎么样集设计或施工?
