Starting Here, Starting Now archiveFrom tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, and wry comments on trendy marriages to ecstatic shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, Richard Matlby Jr. and David Shire's, Starting Here, Starting Now is a thrilling and touching musical revue that has an appealing freshness that has made it a perennial favourite throughout the world for over 45 years. This bold, extroverted journey takes a cast of three through the maze of modern relationships with its heart firmly on its sleeve in a fast-moving, ingratiating look at how love can go right, wrong or nowhere. Exploring Matlby and Shires catalogue of songs from their various early musicals, produced or otherwise, we find each song an impeccably crafted story, original, engaging and bursting with character, showcasing the versatility and charisma of its performer. Join us in this evening of songs from the extraordinary musical writing partnership of Maltby and Shire as we celebrate re-opening the doors at Waterloo East Theatre after 16 months of closure.
