Ground-breaking new musical theatre event SIGNAL ONLINE is being live-streamed around the world once again on Tuesday, May 2020 at 7.30pm GMT (2.30pm EST) via YouTube. This fourth edition of the hit online series features a series of international award-winning composers performing new musical theatre live from their living rooms into yours.
Adam Lenson says:
SIGNAL ONLINE is part of our ongoing project to bring together the global community of new musical theatre writers and present high quality concerts of new work that challenge preconceptions of what musicals look like, sound like or are about. It is such a thrill to bring together these impossible line-ups of the best and most innovative artists in the medium from all over the world. I’m also really excited by the technical advances we have made to ensure high quality music-optimised streams that sync writers from their living rooms for an entirely live concert experience.
Writers from Australia, Canada, USA and across the UK presented work on 12 May including:
Indy Angel (Tragic)
Michael Conley and Dylan Schlosberg (Indecent Proposal)
Charli Eglington (Eight)
Eleanor Griffiths & Megan Hughes (The Art of Skipping)
Anoushka Lucas (Sparks)
