Coming Up: Along the Way at the Battersea Barge

April 18, 2011

One thing West End Geek truly loves, and would like to see more of, is a bit of cabaret. Not the overly glam’n’glossy type either, but smaller, grassroots productions featuring new and bold material. I’ve blogged before about the fabulous Interval Productions, from whom I’ve seen some glimpses of true magic come to life on a small stage.

Another budding company, Bridge the Gap, is bringing their cabaret to the Battersea Barge, the literally rockin’ South London venue where the food is hearty and the stage fully rigged (and which people seem to be buzzing about more than ever following Caroline Sheen‘s one-off show there last night.)

Along the Way will showcase young talent including George Ure (Wicked), Natasha Barnes (Spring Awakening) and Nathaniel Morrison (Sister Act) among other fresh musical theatre talents.

The theme is shows that have broken new ground and shaken things up in theatre. This is a chance to see fringe favourites Pasek and Paul, Kerrigan and Lowdermilk and Jonathan Reid Gealt sung by truly talented young performers, as well as spending a languid Sunday night floating on the moonlight Thames.

WEG will certainly be in attendance – see you there!

Along the Way is on Sunday 1st May. Tickets £9/£6 with NUS,  doors 7pm, show starts at 8.
