The Go-Between premiere arrives on stage at the Apollo TheatreMichael Crawford to star in new British musical. 

BAZ BAMIGBOYE: Maestro Michael Crawford is back! The production marks Crawford's return to the stage after most recently appearing in THE WIZARD OF OZ at the London Palladium. 

Michael Crawford plays Leo Colston, a man who can no longer hide from the memories of his past. Memories of the gloriously hot summer of 1900 and of his days spent in Norfolk come flooding back. Spending the holidays with the family of his school friend Marcus in their luxurious country home, the young Leo finds himself acting as the go-between for the beautiful upper-class Marian and tenant-farmer Ted who are embroiled in a forbidden secret love affair. The innocent Leo gets caught up in the adult atmosphere of deceit and manipulation as he risks everything in this deeply moving coming of age story. The events of that summer and the devastating effects of love denied will shape his life forever.

Joining the previously announced Michael Crawford – with the multi Olivier and Tony-award winning star returning to London’s West End to play Leo Colston – will be Issy Van Randwyck. Renowned for her starring role in the celebrated cabaret group Fascinating Aida, Issy will play the role of Mrs Maudsley.

The iconic roles of Ted and Marian, the lovers who embark on a forbidden affair and for whom Leo acts as the go-between, will be taken by Stuart Ward, who played the lead ‘Guy’ in Once in both the UK and USA, and Gemma Sutton

The new Musical is the screenplay adaptation of the 1971 romantic drama film, where it won the Palme D'or at the Cannes film Festival. A month later, the Queen and Queen Mother arrived at the ABC Cinema in Norwich to attend the premiere. It is the first stage adaptation to show in London.

The Go-Between’s composer/lyricist is Richard Taylor, who most recently composed Flowers For Mrs Harris, the world premiere of which is to be given at Sheffield Crucible Theatre. The production is directed by Roger Haines (The Girls, by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth) having been adapted by David Wood (Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom), who is also the co-lyricist. 
Casting is to be announced.

Scott Lear16th October

An excellent show, well sung and acted and the venue was superb.

Denise Dix-D'hondt16th October

A pleasant surprise !! I was a little apprehensive about using a 75 year old lead but Michael Crawford's voice was as good as ever. Same could be said for the entire cast. The two little boys were fantastic ! I was very familiar with the filmadaptations and didn't quite know how they were going to pull it off on a small stage but they succeeded with flying colors ! Very imaginative staging !! 5 stars all round !! And a deserved standing ovation.

Karoline13th October

It was great to see Michael Crawford on stage again, particularly in the charming Apollo Theatre! A poignant story with an excellent performance from Michael and the rest of the cast, including the boys who played the young Leo and Marcus. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

angela nutt9th October

Brilliant show loved every minute. Michael Crawford outstanding as always.

Cynthia Frowd6th October

A fabulous show.Unusual, enjoyable; a wonderful opportunity to see Michael Crawford, whose performance was perfection - on stage throughout, and always in character. Particular commendation for the staging and choreography - the use of plastic chairs, and amazing costume- changing. It was not easy to hear/understand the boys or Marion in the first scene, particularly Samuel's Marcus, but this improved during the performance.

Peter Amendola6th October

We found The Go-Between to be a beautiful and unique production. The music is lovely and the staging exceptionally striking. We were charmed and moved. Michael Crawford gave a stunning and memorable performance and the rest of the cast, particularly the 2 young boys provided top notch support. This haunting production stays with you long after the curtain falls.

Herman Verbaet6th October

It is more a modern opera, but I liked it.
