Edward Seckerson conducted one of the last major interviews with Leonard Bernstein less than a year before his death in 1990 and it is that memorable encounter that is at the heart of this intimate musical evening.


To mark Bernstein’s centenary, broadcaster Edward Seckerson, musical director Jason Carr and West End star Sophie-Louise Dann celebrate the musical superman who bestrode the Broadway stage as whole-heartedly and adeptly as he did the world’s great concert halls. Through a cocktail of stories and songs – including from West Side Story, Candide and On The Town – the show explores the life and music of this extraordinary composer, conductor, pianist, teacher, father and activist.


"The fast-paced evening never had a dull moment ... [the] patter and anecdotes were always enlightening." Musical Theatre Review
