THE Donmar Warehouse has announced that Daniel Evans and Jenna Russell will curate Donmar Lates, a series of intimate evenings of music and song performed in the iconic setting of the Donmar auditorium.

Each cabaret evening will feature the best of musical theatre, with a programme of songs by Stephen Sondheim, Jason Robert Brown, Noël Coward and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

From its early days as a rehearsal studio for the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, to the hugely successful Divas at the Donmar series in the early 2000s, the Donmar has presented outstanding musical talent over many years, and is delighted to continue this tradition with Donmar Lates.

Evans and Russell will be joined by special guests Hannah Waddingham (Spamalot and A Little Night Music) on March 25 and 26, and Giles Terera (Hamilton and The Book of Mormon) on March 27 and 28, 2020. They will perform their favourite songs from the world of musical theatre and beyond.

They will be accompanied by a three-piece band led by Musical Director Theo Jamieson, whose recent credits include Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and Funny Girl.

Evans and Russell led the cast in the acclaimed 2007 production of Sunday in the Park with George, winning the Olivier Awards for Best Actor and Best Actress in a Musical, before transferring to Broadway the following year.
