West End Misfits: The Valentine's Edition - The Other Palace

West End Misfits

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

GIVING performers the opportunity to present the material that they feel best represents themselves, West End Misfits returns for one night only – February 14, 2020 – for a special Valentine’s Day Edition.

This night of ground-breaking musical theatre and love songs celebrates the diversity and imagination of West End performers who just don’t seem to fit into the casting they want to be.

Imagine Evan Hansen sung by a woman, the leading lady taken on by the characterful bass, or the young cast of Matilda replaced with their future selves!

West End Misfits is an uplifting cabaret show that celebrates uniqueness and advocates for diversity by representing marginalised groups and those who feel they are ‘misfits’ within the industry. West End Misfits showcases performers through solo and group renditions of show tunes, always with an unexpected and exciting twist.

Following on from their critically acclaimed Christmas Edition, West End Misfits returns to the Studio to tackle the most powerful feeling of all in this heartwarming and uplifting show. Featuring a cast of fantastic talent from stage and television, The Valentine’s Edition will take you on a musical journey through the sweet mystery of love, with plenty of swooning and sighing, a little heartbreak, and a good helping of butterflies!

It will be presented by Lara de Belder (Sing: Ultimate A Cappella, Sky One; Comedy Bigmouths, Channel 5), Nic Chiappetta (Beans from Bella and Beans TV; All Together Now, BBC One; Sing: Ultimate A Cappella, Sky One; Vocalist for Avatar World) and Boris Alexander (The Ivan & Andrey Show and Sutreshen Blok (The Morning Show), Bulgarian National TV; Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, UK tour with Bill Kenwright Productions).

Musical direction is by Ben Levy (Sweet Charity, Emil Dale Academy; Stars in Your Eyes, Carriageworks Theatre; BBC Children in Need 2019).
