The Menier Chocolate Factory, in association with Sonia Friedman Productions, presents the world première of a brand-new show Maria Friedman & Friends – Legacy, celebrating the brilliance of Marvin Hamlisch, Michel Legrand and Stephen Sondheim.
Three-time Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman was a friend of and collaborator with these extraordinary composers. This unique event will see her showcase many of their greatest works – including Broadway Baby, Send in the Clowns, A Piece Of Sky, At The Ballet and Nothing – with entertaining and personal memories that make a Friedman cabaret a night to remember.
Collaborating with musical director and pianist, Theo Jamieson, and with fellow performers Matthew White, Ian McLarnon, Alfie Friedman and Desmonda Cathabel, and a choir from the Royal Academy of Music, this show promises to be a celebration worthy of some of the greatest composers of the 20th century. Jamieson will be accompanied by Paul Moylanon Double Bass, and Joe Evans on Percussion.
