Leader of the Pack - The Ellie Greenwich Musical is the true-life story of Ellie Greenwich, one of the greatest female songwriters to emerge from New York's songwriting hit factory, The Brill Building. We follow her life from humble beginnings to become one of the most established and well respected female songwriters and producers of the 60s music industry, an industry that was predominately a man's world. Working with such luminaries of the music industry as Leiber and Stoller Jeff Barry and Phil Spector, Ellie Greenwich wrote, co wrote and produced some of the greatest songs to emerge from the 60s era, songs that remain pop classics to this day.Performers Abi Finley, Matthew Quinn, Perry Meadowcroft, John Sandberg, Isobel Bates, Emma Fraser, Emma-Jane Morton, Lottie-Daisy Francis, Sophia Mackay, Melissa Park.
