Book London Calling: A Centenary Celebration At Duke of York's Theatre, London
The Noël Coward Foundation presents a free lunchtime event celebrating the centenary of Coward's first musical revue 'London Calling!'. With performances from Damian Lewis and Indira Varma, the event will be at the Duke of York Theatre, where it was original performed back in 1923. In conversation with Lucinda Gosling, Noël Coward’s new biographer Oliver Soden will be recalling the story of the production that launched the young Coward's partnership with Gertrude Lawrence and gave us his iconic song 'Parisian Pierrot'. Extracts from the original production will be performed by Damian Lewis and Indira Varma, with songs performed by Georgi Mottram and Robert Hazle. This will be the first time ‘Follow A Star’ has been performed since 1923. The music was thought lost until a handwritten draft was recently discovered when cataloguing the private collection of Coward’s US representative and close friend, Geoffrey Johnson, who bequeathed his collection to the Noël Coward Archive Trust following his death in 2022. The bar will be open before and after to purchase refreshments. Be sure to book your tickets for this free lunchtime event and we hope to see you there!
