CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

Up Against The Wall archiveHenry's got an idea. A great idea. An idea that's gonna make him millions. He's gonna write a musical. A black musical. A big black musical - like you've never seen before. It's gonna be afros, flares, medallions..take it to the bridge and let it all hang out. The brilliant thing about Henry's idea is that it's all so simple.. A few songs from the '70s - Shaft, Superfly, Move On Up, some funky moves, some serious vibe and hey presto - you got a hit..Henry's friend Courtney thinks they're on to a good thing.

Badder than Mohammed Ali. It'll be the greatest musical ever.
Performers Donovan Blackwood (Henry), Ann Marie Roberts (Gloria), Shelley Williams, Danielle Henry, AJ Lewis, Cheryl Alleyne (band member), Darren Benjamin (band member), Lyndrey Holder (band member), Adrian McKenzie (band member), Barry Williams (band member).
