A new theatre company has been launched that brings London’s West End to your front garden.
Doorstep Productions has been founded by actors Maria Friedman and Adrian Der Gregorian.
They have put together group of West End and Broadway performers (actors, singers, dancers and musicians), who will perform on people’s doorsteps, drives and gardens, throughout the British Isles, and will perform in the costumes and characters from people’s favourite moments from their favourite shows.
Maria Friedman said, “Doorstep Productions started as an idea to go and spread some joy at Christmas. We were to be dressed head to toe in beautiful, Dickensian costumes, holding lanterns and singing carols outside hospice windows, care home gardens and some other socially isolated folk. Everything would be Covid safe. It then suddenly struck me, ‘Why not do what we do best, but on the street where you live…?’ Everything seems to be ‘deliverable’ these days, so why not the West End?”
I had a look at their website and the shows listed include Dreamgirls, Mary Poppins, Les Mis, Sound of Music and Phantom of the Opera.
